Fantastic

Today's online Guardian has a thing about films of superheroes. It's not particularly illuminating but it does have this wonderful picture, which I really need to share with you.It comes from the original version of The Fantastic Four, made in 1994. According to the Guardian, the film "apparently only exists because Constantin Film was set to lose its rights to the comic book franchise if it failed to produce a movie by 1995." To someone's credit, it was never released. Luckily though, we have this photograph. Any ideas who the actors are? The Thing looks eerily like McCain... And what on earth are they looking at?

If memory serves, the film was actually damaged by earthquake in storage, another reason it has never seen the light of day

If memory serves, the film was damaged in storage during the earthquake near that time. It will never see distribution as a result.
