‘Fantastic Four’ Director Denies Recent Plot Synopsis

If last week’s rumored Fantastic Four plot synopsis had you worried about the upcoming reboot, perhaps you’ll sleep easier knowing director Josh Trank says it true.

“That synopsis is definitely not the synopsis or anything close to the synopsis, he wrote on Twitter. “I don’t know who put that out.”

The rumored synopsis posited a new origin for Marvel’s first family, more in line with the characters’ Ultimate appearance than their traditional story.

As of now, the Fantastic Four reboot is without any confirmed actors, although Michael B. Jordan is widely considered a lock to play Johnny Storm. Other actors testing for roles include Game of Thrones actors Kit Harington and Richard Madden, and House of Cards actress Kate Mara.

Fantastic Four hits theaters on June 19, 2015.
