Doomed: The Untold Story of Roger Corman’s the Fantastic Four (2015) – A Quick Capsule Review

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
Doomed: The Untold Story of Roger Corman’s the Fantastic Four takes a look behind the scenes of the never released (but often pirated) version of Marvel’s superhero franchise. It’s fascinating stuff – from a cast and crew with loft ambitions to shady dealings by everyone from Corman to Stan Lee.  There’s extensive interviews with all the key players (well except those on the ‘other side’) and lot s of behind the scenes and film footage to salivate over.  If you want to see what marvel was like before it became the company we all now know and love, this is the film for you.  Well worth a watch (and probably still better than Fox’s Fantastic Four films)
