Marvel's comic book legend, former president and chairman Stan Lee watched the first "Fantastic Four" trailer three times in 24 hours and shared his views.
Lee declared that the trailer showed that the film was more into the science-fiction theme than the superhero concept. The ex-chairman added that the four lead characters seemed like normal people doing ordinary things but that changed when they acquired their powers. Lee said that the concept is something to look forward to.
"Fantastic Four" received a lot of comments that it has altered the original story but Lee is not opposed to change. The comic book writer said that movies have changed the characters he wrote but he does not see anything wrong with that. A good example is Thor who started out as someone who "walked with a cane" but when he was changed in the movie, Lee thought it was "wonderful." more >>

The authorities reportedly contacted the staff and crew of the film to inform them that the said scene can be detrimental to the beautiful architrecture of the location. Although the crew assured that it would be filmed in a "controlled manner," the leaders of the town still protested.
The Quattro Fontane was constructed in the 15th century and it was recently restored to protect the landmark. Federica Galloni who is a culture minister said that the landmark is too fragile for a car chase sequence. The minster suggested using CGI instead, which was something that the crew wanted to avoid in the production to make "Spectre" more realistic. more >>
