  1. Don’t mean to sound racist, but aren’t Johnny and Susan Storm related? How are they going to explain it to the fans?

    To be honest, they should just give all the right to the Marvel franchise to Disney. They have been doing an awesome job thus far to maintain continuity in the franchise and haven’t had to reboot any of their movies thus far

      I had the same question about the Storms when the casting rumours started. Maybe they were adopted, maybe it is as @Darryn_Bonthuys:disqus below stated – daddy was a playa

      I was about to ask if we were gonna get some awesome tie-ins with the other Marvel movies, then I realized it was not being made by Disney.

    They look a touch young?

      This will more than likely be based on Ultimate Fantastic Four in which they’re all still very young.

    So….. how are they going to explain Johnny and Sue Storms relationship…. They’ve ALWAYS been a brother/sister team… Is one going to be adopted?
