Fantastic Four - 2005

The original foray into the world of Reed Richards was more highly lauded at the time of it's premiere, but strangely enough gets castigated now. But some of the seeds of what later has become Marvel's cinematic style is on display in director Tim Story's visual imagining of the four astronauts who get a heavy dose of gamma radiation and return to earth with and angry Victor Doom in tow, and soon discover they've instead got to deal with Doctor Doom.

Picking up on the humor of Sam Raimi's Spider-Man (2002) and Spider-Man II (2004), the script by Mark Frost and Michael France lifts a lot from the Kirby and Lee comics, but tries to update and modernize it. Some of it works, some of it doesn't, but all the same the film stands as the best presentation of Marvel's 1961 first super-team, despite reboot attempts.
