A group of astronauts gain superpowers after a cosmic radiation exposure and must use them to oppose the plans of their enemy, Doctor Victor Von Doom.
James Gandolfini and David Boreanaz were considered for the role of Ben Grimm/The Thing.
Typical of Victor Von Doom to build a 30 foot statue of himself.
Reed and Sue's warning to Johnny about approaching 4000 degrees kelvin is wrong on two counts. Not only is this not approaching the temperature of the parts of the Sun that actually 'burn' hydrogen (the Core and the Corona, which are a thousand times hotter) but as a single point of heat only the air in the local vicinity would burn - not the whole planet's atmosphere. A far greater risk would be what in fact happened: objects near by would set alight and burn/melt.
The Marvel Comics logo features comic-book images of the Fantastic Four in its pages; it's also shaded blue, the uniform color of the Four.
The extended cut released in the US is basically the previously released modified version with the addition of the deleted scenes that were presented as bonus material on some European DVD editions (first US DVD release included just a few of these scenes).
