Did you know we love our super hero movies? With a 10 year old son, it's pretty hard not to get into these kinds of things. But truthfully, I like them too. There is something nostalgic about many of the comics and most provide great entertainment for the preteen set. It's a lot of fun to see my son and husband bonding over the same characters that my husband read as a kid.
This week, we're really excited about the release of the Fantastic Four movie. I'm not well-versed on the story, although I was quite proud that I knew Stan Lee created the original series, but the boy has been describing it in detail for me. He can't wait till our copy arrives (it's available on Digital HD now, and on DVD as of December 15) and wants to have a movie night with his best friends.
The FANTASTIC FOUR make a triumphant return with MARVEL’s next generation of heroes — four young outsiders who teleport to an alternate universe, their physical forms altered in shocking ways. Their lives changed forever, Reed Richards (“MR. FANTASTIC”), Sue Storm (“INVISIBLE WOMAN”), Johnny Storm (“THE HUMAN TORCH”) and Ben Grimm (“THE THING”) must harness their incredible new powers and work together to save Earth from a former friend turned enemy, the infamous DR. DOOM.Until then, he's been planning his movie night (we've got a cool science project in the works) and enjoying some of the fun activity sheets we got from Fox Home Entertainment. Just click on any of the images below and you can pop up a printable sized sheet! The left two are word scrambles and the right two are word searches.
We even have the coolest printable Christmas cards. No elves or Santas or snowmen for the boy. He'll say Merry Christmas with The Thing and The Human Torch!
