The Story So Far - A Biography (chapter "fantastic" four)

The Story So Far - A Biography
Chapter "Fantastic" Four

A Storm was coming... Johnny Storm! In 2005 came Chris's big breakthrough when he played Johnny Storm a.k.a. The Human Torch in the movie Fantastic Four. Was it his ultra tight blue Fantastic Four suit or his witty comments? Chris Evans made an impression with his role in the 20th Century Fox's long-awaited adaptation of the Marvel comic.

In Fantastic Four a group of astronauts are changed forever when their spaceship is being hit by a cloud of cosmic radiation. Back home each of the astronauts find out that they develop special superpowers. Reed Richards, played by Ioan Gruffudd, has the ability to stretch his body like elastic, Sue Storm (Jessica Alba) can turn invisible and create force fields.

Her brother Johnny Storm (Chris Evans) becomes The Human Torch can fly and produce fire at supernova temperatures. Ben Grimm (Michael Chiklis) changes into The Thing, a man made out of rock and superstrong. Together they form the Fantastic Four. Their enemy: the evil Doctor Doom, played by Julian McMahon.

I remember seeing Chris Evans for the very first time in a movie special about the Fantastic Four on MTV. I do remember, thinking: hmm he's interesting;-) Then later his pictures started to appear all over the internet. That was the time when people really started to notice Chris Evans. I name the photoshoot by Roberto D'Este and the photoshoot for Flaunt Magazine by the infamous Tony Duran. And even today these pictures have the most hits on the internet.

With his looks and hot body Chris landed spots on several magazine countdowns and reached number 18 on E! Television's 2006 101 Sexiest Celebrity Bodies.

In 2007 the cast of Fantastic Four reprised their roles in 4: Rise Of The Silver Surfer.
