Gruffudd on Fantastic Four

Actor Ioan Gruffudd talks about the film's characters, relationships, and reveals some interesting spoilers.
Actor Ioan Gruffudd, whom plays Mr. Fantastic in the upcoming Fantastic Four movie, spoke to SCI FI Wire about the film's characters and relationships. He mentioned that there wasn't much time to examine the pre-accident relationships among the story's characters. They include Richards, Sue Storm (Jessica Alba), Johnny Storm (Chris Evans) and Benjamin Grimm (Michael Chiklis), who are transformed, respectively, into Mr. Fantastic, the Invisible Girl, the Human Torch and the Thing.

"We go to space pretty early on," Gruffudd said in an interview. "We have the accident pretty early on. We do the discovery of our powers in the first third of the movie, and from then on it's how we deal with our powers."

Gruffudd added: "Reed Richards' idea is he doesn't want the public to be exposed to us. He doesn't want to be a part of it. Johnny Storm, on the other hand, wants to be out in the public eye and exploit his powers. So, while Johnny is exploiting the situation, Reed is trying to find a cure to fix his best friend, Benjamin Grimm, who has been turned into this monster."

The Fantastic Four will open in movie theatres nationwide on July 8.
