hey all,

I don't know if you heard, but I saw on MANIA,
thay they're going to reboot FANTASTIC 4. it seems
that, besides seeing Jessica Alba in a skintight
bodysuit, they weren't too thrilled. they want to
bring the fun of the comic book to the screen. I
didn't mind either movie, but any thoughts?

I thought the last two were already a reboot??!! I thought the 2nd (Rise of the Surfer) was a considerable improvement over the first and did a pretty good job at capturing the spirit of the old Kirby/Lee stuff. Not sure what "reboot" means in this instance but I know that writer Michael Green had worked on Smallville and while that worked well enough for the small screen, personally I'd prefer not to see FF get the sort of overhaul he gave Superman. Let's hope it's a good move.

They are sure in a rush to cut and redo properties that have already have their chance. I personally would rather they continue the property with a new writer and director team. Or give a new group of heroes a chance to have their own movie.
It isn't like Marvel doesn't have an ass load of characters that they could make into movies. Why keep rehashing the same ones, Since the FF movies were not complete failures I really do not see the need to reboot, it isn't like they are even old yet.

What are they going to do different with this "reboot" to make it better? Just copy "Dark Knight" and make it a much more morbid, dark film?

I heard it was going to be a Fantastic Four-some porn flick.

Hop0efully it'll be like when they rebooted the Hulk movies since the second one was much better (though it didn't do much better at the box office). Hopefully they can get some actors that can emote and a script that gives them some personality.

Anything's better than the bootleg direct to video version that never saw the light of day.

I think it's like this: I believe that Stan Lee, co-creator of the Fantastic Four, said THE INCREDIBLES was the best FANTASTIC FOUR movie ever made. I know I'm paraphrasing, but that's essentially it -- and I have to agree.

I've had the opportunity to read a couple dozen FF stories from the Stan Lee-Jack Kirby years, and I have to agree. Maybe they could put writer/director Brad Bird in charge of an FF movie, now that Disney owns Marvel.

I'd love to hear the Heromorph readers' casting ideas if they do indeed reboot.

Maybe they are doing a reboot so they can just slap a disney logo on the movie...

I know you said it as a joke, but that would actually be pretty cool.

IMO: I don?t believe the FF movie franchise needs a ?reboot? or to be ?recast?. It just needs a better director. Unfortunately Fox handed the keys to the guy who wrote ?Batman and Robin?. A film so bad that the only way to make it watchable is to have this audio track playing in the background.

OK, so I was thinking, the original intent on this thread is starting to wear off. but lets think about this.
Say they are going to recast and restart FF. We have yet to fully explore the most important question. Who should Play Invisible Woman

About this upcoming mess, it's really interesting to read what John Byrne has to say:

Yeah, I have to agree with Mr. Byrne, that's some weird casting.

Yeah. This has been a bug in my britches since the first X-Men movie. It's not a good thing when you can count the number of black characters to appear in these movies on one hand. Storm, Nick Fury, War Machine/Iron Patriot and Falcon [I don't count Bishop or Gabe Jones because neither of them had major roles. Nor do i count the trans-racial versions of Catwoman, Perry White or Alicia Masters]. While I agree that there are not that many quality black heroes to showcase. The idea of changing a traditionally white into a black one just to appease a disgruntled society is just blasphemy in the highest degree. I will not be patronizing the new Fantastic Four movie as a protest against this move.

The final casting in this one seems really off. Just from the casting we know they are completely ignoring the source material .

The other thing that strikes me as really odd about this film project is that it isn't that far off and we have heard or seen really anything about it.

They were talking to the actress cast as Invisible girl in an interveiw a month or so a go and she was scheduled to start filming and she said she still had not seen the script.

I have many concerns about this film.

The only thing that I've seen about this movie that I liked was this image:



All the rest, from the casting to Doom's new roots/name are BS and not worthy of even a glimpse from me at a Saturday evening movie in TV.
