The new Fantastic Four reboot website has revealed a big change in Reed Richard’s powers, and comic readers may be pissed.
In the character bios section of the official movie site, there’s this description of Reed’s powers and it’s a drastic change in the reboot:
The Reed of the comics has the power of elasticity, which means he can shape his body into almost anything. He’s like silly puddy, and isn’t just warping space around him to give the appearance of stretching. This is just yet another example of Fox removing the “Fantastic” from Fantastic Four in an attempt to make the movie dark, gritty, and “grounded in reality”.
