PG-13 | | Action, Adventure, Fantasy
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.
Victor foreshadows Mr. Fantastic and The Thing before the storm scene happens. He firstly comments on Reed Richards 'stretching' for the stars during the meeting, then later jokes about Ben Grimm doing 'all the heavy lifting'.
Typical of Victor Von Doom to build a 30 foot statue of himself.
The Thing's weight is inconsistent throughout the film. For example, at the beginning, he's heavy enough to collapse a hospital bed while simply laying in it, but when he's thrown into a moving car by Dr. Doom at the end of the film, he does little more than dent the hood and apparently has little impact on the vehicle's maneuverability.
There is a scene in the closing credits: Dr Doom is seen on a ship heading to his home country Latveria.
