In 2005, in Tim Story’s “Fantastic Four”, a small, visually very poorly done cameo from Wolverine was cut during editing.

Since the release of Tim Story’s Fantastic Four in 2005, the quality of visual effects in cinema has evolved considerably. The Marvel-branded feature films that were being released at the time did not yet have the same digital tools as today, and certain sequences from these feature films therefore aged quite quickly.

Generally, driven by a surge of nostalgia when they rediscover them several years later, fans easily forgive them for these few digital wrinkles, which sometimes have a certain charm.

Marvel’s ugliest scene

There are, however, certain special cases for which the excuse of the times is no longer sufficient. Certain visual effects that were already ninety years old before even seeing the light of day.

Indeed, the first part of the Fantastic Four notably carried by Ioan Gruffudd, Jessica Alba and by a very young Chris Evans (before the latter became Captain America) almost gave us the most visually failed sequence in the history of Marvel.

Fortunately cut from the final cut (probably because of its special effects), the scene revealed a romantic discussion between Mr. Fantastic and the Invisible Woman, in front of the Statue of Liberty.

Wolverine in Fantastic 4

For two seconds, in order to appear as “a stronger man” to his beloved, the elastic man used his powers to momentarily take the appearance of… Wolverine.

Rather amusing, this little nod to previous Marvel productions (which notably included the first two parts of the X-Men saga) would have been welcome if it had benefited from better visual treatment.

In any case, it testifies to the fact that even at the time, the producers of the Maison des Idées were seriously considering the possibility of mixing the different heroes of their films within a single universe.
