Fantastic Four is a 2015 film based on the comic book characters of the same name and a reboot of the film franchise. The film follows the team gaining Superpowers from a another planet and battled to project the world from Victor von Doom.


Childhood friends Reed Richards and Ben Grimm have worked together on a prototype teleporter since their childhood, eventually attracting the attention of Professor Franklin Storm, director of the Baxter Foundation, a government-sponsored research institute for young prodigies. Reed is recruited to join them and aid Storm's children, scientist Sue Storm and technician Johnny Storm, into completing a "Quantum Gate" designed by Storm's wayward protege, Victor Von Doom, who begrudgingly agrees to help due to his unrequited feelings for Sue.

The experiment is successful, and the facility's supervisor, Dr. Allen, assembles a group of astronauts to venture into a parallel dimension known as "Planet Zero". Disappointed at being denied the chance to join the expedition, Reed, Johnny and Victor recruit Ben to help them commandeer the Quantum Gate and embark on a unsanctioned voyage to Planet Zero, which they learn is a world filled with otherworldly substances. Johnny stays near Quantum Gate while Reed, Victor and Ben attempt to collect a sample of the substances. Victor, attempting to collect a sample, causes the entire structure they're in to collapse and the ground to erupt with green lava-like substance. Reed, Victor and Ben ran towards their shuttle, but Victor falls in green lava-like substance and is presumed dead. Reed and Ben make it to the shuttle along with Johnny. Trying to teleport back to Earth, Reed, Johnny and Ben make contact with Sue telling her to bring them back from Planet Zero. Before teleporting back, Ben unable to shut his door, gets mauled by rocks while Johnny is burned alive. Just as Sue brings them back to Earth, the machine explodes, hitting Sue with wave. Reed crawling from shuttle, sees Johnny's burned alive body and listens as his friend Ben is yelling for help. Desperately trying to help Ben, Reed passes out as he sees his leg is stretched. They are then placed in government custody and confinement to be studied and have their conditions and abilities tested. Blaming himself for the accident, Reed escapes the facility and becomes a fugitive while desperately trying to find a cure. Government offers Ben to become a military asset, which he agrees.

One year later, Reed is located in South America by Sue and confronted by Ben, who has become a military asset along with Johnny and Sue. Johnny and Sue have been outfitted with specialized suits, one of which Reed later receives, designed to keep up with their conditions and abilities and to help them stabilize, control, and contain their abilities. Reed is brought to Area 57, where Dr. Allen conscripts him to open another portal to Planet Zero in exchange for giving Reed the necessary resources to find a cure. Professor Storm seeing Johnny becoming a military asset, tries to convince him about consequences that might worth his own life. Johnny, seeking to use his powers to help people, doesn't want to listen what his dad said. Soon Reed, Professor Storm, Sue, Dr. Allen and Johnny watch Dr. Allen's explorers arrive in Planet Zero. Explorers find Victor, who has been fused to his spacesuit and can now control the elements, as well as having telekinetic abilities, and bring him back to Earth. Driven insane by the experience and believing the human race needs to be destroyed so he can rebuild it in his image, Victor escapes, kills scientists and soldiers in the base, including Dr. Allen and Professor Storm, and returns to Planet Zero using the Quantum Gate, with Ben, Johnny, Reed and Sue in pursuit.

On Planet Zero, Victor activates a portal, using a structure he made while in the realm, that begins consuming the landscape of the Earth. He is confronted by the four and, after a destructive battle, Ben punches Victor into the portal's energy beam, disintegrating him, while Johnny closes the portal. Returning to Earth, the group is rewarded for their heroics by being given a new base of operations by the United States military. They decide to use their powers to help people and adopt the mantle of the "Fantastic Four".
