    It's not looking too positive. Although, I don't care anything about this franchise so if it bombs so what. If it's good, I'll enjoy it. But I have no expectations for this.

    Great... now Jamie Bell is 2 of my favorite comic characters. Both of which will feature him buried under cgi. [face_dancing]

    Why will it suck?

    This falls into the Jesse Eisenberg/Affleck OMGCOPTER hysteria that I can't wrap my head around. Let's see what they can do.

    I look forward to hearing about the trademark bigoted nerd reaction to Michael B Jordan's casting.

    I wish they had chosen a WOC to be Sue Storm, especially since Michael B. Jordan is Johnny Storm.

    Having caught some glimpses of it - it's about as bad as you'd expect, maybe worse. I'm certainly staying off of /co/ for a while.

    Well, in Nordic myths the Human Torch was a white guy, you see.

    So with Sue still being white, does that mean Sue and Johnny are now step-siblings or some such?

    As a lifelong FF fan, I have no problem whatsoever with a race-change for Johnny. But, please just let me revel in actually having a blonde Sue for the first time. Such casting happens so rarely.

    It will be nothing compared to the ****storm that will hit if the female Doom rumors turn out to be true.

    This movie looks like its based on the Fantastic Four in the loosest sense of the term, especially if this female Doom thing turns out to be true. Even Ultimate Fantastic Four's a bit of a stretch. I mean, Jamie Bell?

    I liked the old movie's so not thrilled about new ones but the cast is ugly. Sue looks awful compared to lovely Jessica Alba.

    It just seems like someone said, "Well, those last two F4 films didn't do well, let's do something completely different!

    it does let's hope it good. hope the best thing in the world! Why don't we try to cast crap actors and write a "sub par" story.

    Agreed. It almost seems like a panic move. I'm sure getting this movie off the ground before the rights revert to Marvel is a big factor. They're probably in a now-or-never situation so they have to make due with the script they have and are casting accordingly.

    Three good actors and Miles Teller, I'd say that's a good start.

    Saying that three times, is the equivalent of saying Beetlejuice three times. You do not want to summon Him.

    At least Jesse Eisenberg's casting makes a little sense. They are going for a more Mark Zuckerberg like villain who is young and arrogant. These casting choices just all around don't make sense. 12 year old KG Lang looking guy as Reid Richards? Skinny pale british guy as Ben Grimm? The weakest link of the House of Cards as Sue Storm? Michael B. Jordan as her brother? Its like they're pulling the names out of a hat, or more likely Josh Trank is picking his Chronicle 2 dream team and turning it into Fantastic Four in name only.

    This reminds me of Transformers 2...how they had to rush it out due to the strike and next thing we know we have a Transformer climbing a pyramid with huge robot testicles dangling.
