Tim Story, director of both Fantastic Four movies, said that he did take heed of fans' reactions from the first film for the sequel, Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer.

"Of course one of the biggest things that I heard and knew about was the fact that they wanted Ben Grimmıs brow bigger and bigger," Story said during The Continuum's visit to the set in Vancouver. "We had it rather large at some point and found that the biggest problem I ran into was that you couldn't light his eyes.

"Any time I lit a set, his eyes would be in shadow, and (Michael) Chiklis, who was so amazing at being this character, the last thing we wanted to do was hide his eyes from everybody. so we actually had to scale back the brow from what we were originally thinking we were gonna go."

Story also noted fans wanted Doctor Doom "to be more of a bad-ass" and more action.

"They just wanted action, action, action, which was the main point that I got from most," Story said. "And I think we deliver on that 100 percent."

Story said he monitored the Internet. "In the early parts of, through pre-production and the early parts of filming, I continued to read things on the web and just anything that I can use and kinda bring to the screen, I would," he said.
