FANTASTIC FOUR Director Josh Trank Debunks Rumoured Synopsis

Earlier this week, an audition sheet spread regarding the cast for next summer's The 
Fantastic Four. While the actors/actresses who were going in for roles were not unheard of (all were previously rumoured) the sheet included a synopsis for the film. Chronicle director, Josh Trank, who will also direct this adaption of Marvel's first superhero team, has tweeted regarding the synopsis. The rumoured synopsis had Reed Richards becoming a genius AFTER the events that turn him into Mr. Fantastic which would enrage many fans, like myself. As I mentioned on my Twitter account, that synopsis was from two to three months ago, before Simon Kinberg was brought in to rewrite the script. My info was backed up by the film's director, Josh Trank, when he took too Twitter to say the synopsis is "definitely not the synopsis or anything close to the synopsis. i don't know who put that out." While this may be a sigh of relief for some fans, a lot of people are still bummed that Fox are making another Fantastic Four film and believe Marvel should have the rights. Interestingly, the director has come out to debunk the rumoured synopsis, but he has been very quiet when it comes too the rumoured cast. The actors/actresses who went/are going in for a audition for Reed Richards/Mr. Fantastic include: Miles Teller, Kit Harington and Richard Madden, and for Susan Storm/The Invisible Woman include: Kate Mara and Saoirse Ronan. So far, the only confirmed actor too be cast in a role is Michael B. Jordan, who (according too many) will portray Susan Storm's younger brother, Johnny Storm. Which would likely mean that Kate Mara will end up playing The Invisible Woman. According too multiple sources, the Four leads will be cast by the end of the month, hoping for a March 31st shooting.

The Fantastic Four is set to hit theatres sometime in 2015
