The Fantastic Four: Fighting troubles of a production kind

Despite a history dating back more than 50 years in print, and having sold more than 150 million comics, Marvel supergroup The Fantastic Four have always had a troubled relationship with the silver screen.

This week sees another attempt at creating a film franchise to rival that of The Avengers or The X-Men, after the last effort sputtered out after just two movies.

But even this latest reboot has been plagued by numerous reports of troubles during its production, as Talking Movies' Tom Brook reports.
