I keep hearing about how the reboot of Fantastic Four is going to be a more "grounded" version of the team. Thant's an adjective that I would never think to use for a team consisting of a guy who bursts into flames, a guy made of rocks, and especially a guy with stretchy powers. I think that the FF are supposed to be larger and life, fully embracing all the craziness of superhero comics, while keeping things relatable with their familial relationships with one another. I don't think it's the kind of property that would benefit from a gritty Batman Begins type of approach. Still, the jury is out until I see some actual foortage.
