Christ, a Fantastic Four reboot movie? Really?

Mugato: Christ, a Fantastic Four reboot movie? Really?



We're now on a five year cycle from the last film in the previous series to the reboot. If my calculations are correct, we could see the reboot happening concurrent with the film being rebooted within our lifetimes.

Damn you Richards with your science!

isn't this the third reboot for FF4 in the last decade?

Jessica Alba and Reed Richards were some of the worst miscasting for a comic book movie outside that dumb girl someone hired to play Lois Lane in that last Superman movie.

I hated them both, and they sure had chemistry together, huh.

REBOOT ON! Can't be worse.

It's less of a reboot and more of an apology.

From the comments:
I have heard a rumor that they're casting Wallace Shawn as the Mole Man. Does anyone have any more info?

Mole Man? That could be unspeakably horrible in any hands other than Trank's. But with Trank... I don't know. Could actually be kind of Awesome.

I liked Hornblower! And Human Torch was good/great. The Thing was excellent. And Doom was perfect. The script just sucked. Same with the second. Jessica didnt ruin that movie.

Should have been Sue Richards/Storm

So is Fox's FF franchise in the same boat as the Sony's Spider-Man franchise? They have to crank out a movie every X number of years or else you lose the rights to the characters?
 
2012-07-12 12:01:53 PM
Can we stop with the farking superhero movies already?
 
2012-07-12 12:01:54 PM
Now this is a reboot I heartily endorse. I consider all earlier incarnations to be nothing more than ill-advised parodies. That is all.

If that's the case why do they spend $100 mil to do it? Crap out a DtV release, and save the big bucks for when you can do it right. Oh wait, Hollywood.

Aw, c'mon... that old use-it-or-lose-it rights trick led to one of the coolest films ever made:
Roger Corman's Fantastic Four

Fantastic Four and Daredevil on top of all the Avengers stuff. For pant's sake.

I just dont get excited about the Fantastic Four, they just seem a bit pants. Thin personalities and stupid powers. Not keen.

If he keeps the same realistic, brutal feeling he created for Chronicle and puts it in FF, I am in. I was shocked at how good Chronicle was. Expected it too be another groan worthy, so bad it's good found footage sci-fi/fantasy movie. Instead, I had my heart broken by Andrew, (I'm sorry. I mean, AAAAANNNNDDDDRRREEEWWW!) and wanting a sequel where him and Steve come back. I don't know how but, dammit, I want them back.
 
2012-07-12 12:11:30 PM
Maybe the problem isn't with the director or script or anything like that...maybe it's just that the Fantastic Four suck. Honestly, they aren't particularly sympathetic characters. Reed Richard is a dick who puts his friends in danger (for SCIENCE!), Sue Storm is a woman who is clearly a co-dependent who can't see that Reed would rather stroke his new invention than her, Johnny Storm is that guy at parties everyone tries to avoid because they know at some point he's going to take his pants off and dry hump the furniture, and Ben Grimm is a sad sack loser who hangs around with rich folks to make him feel better about himself, basically a teabagger wannabe. Compared to Marvel's other properties, the FF have about as much personality as a cardboard box.

The only interesting character is Dr. Doom. In fact, you could just make a Dr. Doom film and be done with it. That would be more entertaining.

I'm waiting for the re-reboot to precede the reboot. That will definitely signify "the future" to me.

From urban dictionary:

You're a pants pantsing pants who pantses every pantsing pants that pantsing comes your pantsing way, therefore you and your pantsing pants should go to pants!
 
2012-07-12 12:26:30 PM
My favorite take on the FF is Robert Kirkman's Marvel Zombies, where Reed Richards just says fark it, zombie superhero is the way to go, and then like infects a million multiverses to devour braaaaiiins.

And it's totally in character too.
 
2012-07-12 12:28:12 PM
Chronicle the movie? Eh, it was ok. The girl grabbed it from Redbox, and while predictable, it reminded me of Akira a whole lot.

/she agreed
 
2012-07-12 12:30:47 PM
It's a bit early to say anything about another FF movie, when all you have is a director. 'Chronicle'? I must have overlooked that one.
 
2012-07-12 12:32:58 PM
I thought we already had a good Fantastic Four movie. It was called The Incredibles.

potato_chip_eating_geek: isn't this the third reboot for FF4 in the last decade?


Well, they did the first one (the Roger Corman one) for the same reason theyre doing this one, so the rights dont go back to Marvel. Because theyre dicks. But FF4 are lame anyway.

Don't like them? Don't watch them. There are about three or four wide releases every weekend plus a ton of limited release movies. There has to be something you like.

I'd like to see Namor if the rights aren't elsewhere The Inhumans are probably too complicated. The Mole Man could be good but Wallace Shawn doesn't seem very menacing. Puppet Master? Dragon Man? Kurrgo?

Nina_Hartley's_Ass: The Mole Man could be good but Wallace Shawn doesn't seem very menacing.


Isn't that the point of the character? You think he's just some little dude who crawled out of the ground but then his huge CGI Nasty Monster crawls out of the ground and eats Manhattan?

Fark, Disney, pony up the cash so these morons don't hurt your product. They'll probably mess it up, and plastering Marvel in front of the opening is going to make you look bad. Then, you can make an Iron Man/Dr. Doom movie, and the Hulk can fight the Thing.

All DC film/TV properties are handled by Warner Bros. Unlike Marvel, who sold rights to different properties to different studios and then changed their minds and opened their own studio, DC did the umbrella approach, with DC and WB working together, which has been hit or miss. Batman = hit, GL/Superman = miss.

There's an old clause where the film rights to Superman go back to the families of Shuster and Siegel if they don't make a film every so often. I think the timeline is much more forgiving than Marvel's deals w/ Sony and Fox, though.
