I've always had a soft spot for the Fantastic Four, and since the movie is currently filming in Vancouver, I've been watching its progress with interest. Now comes this report from Cinescape that some new footage is being shot to better showcase Reed Richards' stretching power, apparently to live up to the standard set by Elastigirl in The Incredibles. And that's just fine with me.

You can see some early footage from the movie here. They seem to have done a decent job updating the origin, though not as inventively (and consistently with FF lore) as Brian Michael Bendis in the kickass Ultimate Fantastic Four. Though I don't see how any movie could capture the mad genius ideas that would regularly flow from Jack Kirby's pen.

Love them Kirby dots

Where has Rich gone?
I'm in the Negative Zone. I'm dining with Galactus, then hopping a ride back to earth with the Impossible Man (and the other Poppupps), where I'll be touring Latveria with Doctor Doom, until Agatha Harkness casts a spell to bring Franklin Richards back from the future. Again.

And you say I'm not a Fantastic Four fan...
