Yesterday a Redditor who went by the name “Mr. Blue” spilled a lot of strangely positive details about Fox’s upcoming bastardization of Fantastic Four. The post has been since deleted, but someone on IMDB captured the whole thing and reprinted what was said. Some of the more “interesting” things he revealed are:
The movie itself wasn’t all bad – it feels like Chronicle 2, which isn’t a bad thing. It manages to keep the basis of the characters despite the race change for Johnny and the uh… original love story between two of the characters (I won’t mention who).
He’s an internet blogger and a programmer who works for Dr. Storm at the Baxter Institute. However, after he gets his powers he becomes closer to the classic 616 Doom in personality. There are many hints towards him becoming ruler of Latveria in the future.
Funny that some of the details in the reveal echo the plot synopsis that was called fake recently.
A big red flag to this positive dump of information is that over the last couple of weeks more negative news was coming out about Josh Trank and his alleged problems on the set, leading some to say he was fired and Fox is seeking a replacement for reshoots. For positive news like this to “leak” out right after that just screams of a viral marketer hired by Fox to help distract from more negative news out there.
