We know Tim Story made a director's cut and we've had statements from a few involved that it'c coming... I figured that we should have started to here stuff by now since this summer number 2 is coming out- anyone here anything recently?

They recorded bonus material with comic legends Marv Wolfman and Len Wein specially for this new cut of the movie a year ago but theres been no news since.
From Marv Wolfman's Official Site:

I just received the brand-new BEAST MACHINES DVD that contains the entire series. Why did I get it? Well, first of all, I wrote a number of the episodes, and though most fans didn't know it, I also created the basic concepts for the show, including the two-year bible which was then developed and story-edited by Bob Skir and Marty Isenberg. But perhaps even more importantly, I am on the DVD, interviewed about the creation of the series as well as doing a running commentary on one of the episodes I wrote. If you're interested in buying the Beast Wars DVD, why don't you click on one of the Amazon.com ads on this page and then navigate to it. If you go to Amazon through this website I actually get a penny or two.

This isn't the first DVD I've been on, and there are a few more coming out in the next year including the Fantastic Four special edition DVD where Len Wein and I talked about our runs on the book, and the upcoming 14-disc Superman collection where I, and many other comics folk, talk - on camera - about all things Superman. That DVD collection sounds absolutely astounding. You won't want to miss it.

My presence on the DVDs may be reason to avoid them, but you can always ignore my stuff (God knows I do; I can't stand to see or hear me talk) and then watch and listen to everything else. You have to figure if they've recorded me, then they've had to find some really good stuff to make up for it.

I really hope it gets released in the summer to tie-in with FF2's theatrical release. If not then by the end of the year to tie-in with the FF2 dvd.
 
Heres some qoutes from Tim Story about the extended cut.....

Director Tim Story thinks bigger will be better on DVD. He cut his comic book movie, Fantastic Four, down to a fast-paced 105 minutes for its hit theatrical release, but he has proposed an extended cut of the movie, in addition to deleted scenes as an extra feature, for the DVD.

“I feel like now people have seen the kind of fast- paced ‘get in and out’ version,” Story said. “We’re talking [about] only a handful of scenes that I might put back into the movie just to allow the movie to breathe a little bit.”

Extended cuts have become more common as studios look for opportunities to create additional, sellable versions of the same film. Many directors take issue with the term “director’s cut,” insisting that adding more does not necessarily make the film better. But Story is okay with creating additional versions with films under the right conditions.

“I don’t mind that, as long as I have the say so of what [is put back in],” he said.

Fantastic Four tells the origin of the team of superheroes exposed to cosmic radiation in outer space, resulting in each one developing unique powers. Most of the film’s visual effects are on display in theaters, but Story said he has saved a few for his extended cut.

“There are a couple of things with special effects in them that we actually finished up and then [will] put into the movie, so it’ll be interesting to see how people respond to it,” he said.

To complement or offer an alternative to the extended cut, Story also has plans for the standard array of DVD extras for Fantastic Four.

“There are going to be a lot of deleted scenes and commentaries, and we’re going to have a lot of special effects features,” he said.
Story on Fantastic 4 DVD & Sequel

F4Movies.com got a chance to chat with Fantastic Four director Tim Story, who mentions the DVD and sequel. Here are several clips:

F4M: Was any footage held back specifically for a special edition of the dvd? Did you approach any material, in pre- or post-production, with the intent of adding to a dvd later? Also, do you know if fans will be able to expect any of the scenes that we saw in trailers or featurettes that did not make it to the final film on the dvd?

TS: I just mentioned some stuff with Ben Grimm and Alicia - they're sooooo touching. We did go back and finish some special effect in scenes so we could add them to the dvd. Several actually. I think the fans will have some well worthy surprises on the dvd.

Wow, thats the last time we heard about the DC from Tim Story? dang.....well I know things can change in 5 or 6 months, but I hope they are planning to use the DC as a promotional tool and release it in April with an "inside look" at the sequel as a part of the special stuff.....good promotional tool in my opinion.
 
Let's hope so.

Because when you look at the recent DCs done for other FOX projects like Mr. & Mrs. Smith (which came out at the same time FF1 did), we really should have it by now.

I would rather not have it now and have them use it as a promotional tool to its fullest potential....

yeah, this is what they'll most likely do. I can't wait, I liked the theatrial version, but I think this will improve it a lot!
