Revealing mistake: At the end, there is a group of people with their backs to the camera, facing & waving to the Fantastic 4. As the F4 fly towards the camera and out of the shot, the crowd turns to continue waving to them. One small boy in white remains facing the wrong way, still waving, until another child grabs the back of his clothes & turns him to face the right way.
Trivia: A quarter of the way into the credits there is another scene where it is revealed that the Silver Surfer lived.
Trivia: The guest that was rejected at the party really was Stan Lee who helped popularize the Fantastic Four through writing the comic book for many years. This is actually from the comic book wedding of Reed Richards and Sue Storm (in the 60s) where a guest who looked like Stan Lee was turned away from the wedding.Joel Amos Gordon
Trivia: Part of the reason Galactus does not appear in his true "comic book" form in this film (instead being portrayed as an organic, cloud-like being) is because the producers had initially planned on revealing Galactus in his "true form" in a spin-off movie about the Silver Surfer. Thus, they instructed the director and writers to change his form to obscure what he really looks like to keep his "true appearance" in the spin-off a surprise for fans. Unfortunately, this spin-off never came to be. Regardless, during the climax of the film, one can very briefly see subtle shapes inside of the cloud alluding to Galactus' face and head.
Question: Did anyone else notice how much more blue Sue's eyes seemed to be in this movie than the first? Was that a mistake or intentional?
