#1: Just about every word of voice over narration out of Dr. Storm's mouth.
There are a lot of speeches given by Doctor Storm on the importance of scientific advancement, about looking for one thing and finding another, and about how awesome Reed Richards is. Pretty much none of that makes it into the final cut. But the most egregious might be this exchange between Doctor Storm (Reg E. Cathey) and Dr. Allen (Tim Blake Nelson):
Dr. Allen: “Dr. Storm. We gave you six years and millions of dollars and you gave us nothing. What’s different this time?”
Dr. Storm: “Reed Richards.”
Yes, Dr. Allen does ask this question but it's in the middle of his dialogue and Dr. Storm never says Reed is the key to everything. More like, they found somebody with the missing piece and now Dr. Storm is getting the team back together to finish it. The real point of contention is how Dr. Allen doesn't want Viktor von Doom back in the lab, but Dr. Storm refuses to go back to work without him.
