Marvel and DC fark with it just as much in the actual books.  How many different Marvel continuities are there now?

I like FF, and Silver Surfer was one of the few comic books I actually followed when I was a kid.  I'd love to see Fox put together a FF movie that lives up to the quality of what Marvel has been doing with their MCU films.

I think Marvel has finally noticed that if, instead of flipping off the fans, you make a film the fans will love, the word of mouth drives people to the seats. And it kind of looks like the DC TV people have figured that out, going by the ratings on Arrow. But it's like only CERTAIN Marvel folks and only A FEW DC folks have got it and the rest aren't listening to them.

The problem is that Marvel doesn't own the movie rights for all of their characters.   Before they started developing the MCU they sold off the rights to a bunch of their franchises, including the FF.  It's also why there are no mutants in the MCU - Marvel doesn't own the movie rights for the X-Men.

Yeah, I'd heard something about it but no specifics. I heard there's some kind of "there must be a film ever X number of years or the property reverts" clause, too.

Fark this Fantastic Four movie, fark it right up it's hemorrhoid ridden, stretched out asshole. And aside from Chiklis and Evans(who were spot on), fark the last two as well. Gruffudd was piss poor, and everyone involved should be ashamed of Jessica Alba. I won't even mention the abomination of Doom.

It's a sad day when the Corman movie is the most true to source material FF movie we're probably ever going to get.

Uh...  which source material?  FF has like three hundred thousand origins alone, and its old enough that it was around in the "eh, it's been three months, just use the same plot but with some slightly different art and timing" period.

Honestly, the only faithful way to adapt any of the really long-running comic series is to just make shiat up as you go along.  If you're not, then you don't truly understand comics at the basic philosophical level.

Wonder Woman is not Kryptonian. That was a bloggers speculation.

Superman is still from Krypton. He's still Clark Kent. He's still a good guy. Just the trapping have changed a little bit.

I've puzzled for years why writers change superheroes for the movies. There are a bunch of excuses. Sometimes there's a fanboy on board who wants to bring HIS vision of a character that he had at age 9. A lot of times they simply don't care or are repurposing another plot. (this seemed to be popular in the 80s-90s before superhero movies got big* A big one is to convolute the origin story of the hero and his biggest villain.

The weird thing is when they screw with the origin for no reason at all. I understand not making a modern Punisher movie with Punisher as a Vietnam vet. He'd be too old now, unless it's a period piece. Yet the only thing that sets Punisher apart from your generic action cop revenge movie is the other details of his origin.

Yeah maybe if you're Zack Snyder. If you want to do a good adaptation of a long running series, however, you distill everything down to whatever general themes can be found throughout the majority of the series and then try to hit all the relevant notes thematically instead of trying to capture the specific details or worse, "make shiat up."

That would make no sense at all.  Would all the Amazons be from Krypton?  An entire colony living on Earth for centuries?  That's a stretch even by comic book standards (yeah, I know, there are no standards).

Example: Bruce Timm's Justice League. Lots of details wouldn't have been "right" but the distillation captured the characters very well. For goodness sake, he shipped Batman and Wonder Woman as love interests, used John Stewart instead of Kyle Rayner, and totally meddled with Hawk-Woman's (admittedly convoluted) backstory. BRAINIAC became the computer from Krypton. It all worked splendidly because the RELEVANT notes were captured.

I've been having trouble coming up with joke versions of heros that haven't been tried (what if Superman had a jive talking robot dog as a mentor) but a good example of meddling for no good reason would have been the proposed version of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles where they would have been aliens, the reason cited was that "kids would have a tough time understanding some sort of talking mutated turtle" or some such.

Fano: I bet you want a giant mechanical spider in your FF movie.


There is no way to say this without sounding like a complete nerd, but... well, whatever.

That wouldn't necessarily require violating continuity.  In the Civil War storyline Spider-man had his giant mechanical Iron Spider suit (made by Stark in that continuity), and partway through that storyline Spider-man defected to the anti-reg side, making an Iron-Spider/FF brawl an entirely continuity-consistent possibility and even pretty likely given the ubiquity of Richards and Parker in the series.

Also, really, wild wild westing the movie is where you draw the line?  Here they are allying with a giant eel-amoeba with radar, so a giant fish-robot basically:
goodcomics.comicbookresources.com

and here's the ridiculous bullshiat I was really, really hoping would end up being the final boss of the avengers sequence (boo, Thanos, no one likes you).  Sticking him in a mech suit with a couple extra arms wouldn't make him any weirder (he has the "giant" part down for sure, just got to correct from starfish to spider):

I'm really unsure how you can start a conversation trying to show off your comic knowledge and how you love the weirder 70's and 80's stuff, and then turn around and suggest that you were anticipating DC's Starro as the final boss off Marvel's Avengers, using a fake cover of an imaginary cross-over comic (http://braveandboldlost.blogspot.com/) that was created well after the Avenger's movie came out to support your thought process.

Why, it's just convoluted enough to be its own comic book film plot!

They're supposedly rebooting that show, by the way.

this. why do we need to keep re-telling origin stories?  WE ALL farkING KNOW THE ORIGINS.  Just tell cool super hero stories.

The Amazing Spider-man could have been truly AMAZING had they just made a farking Spider-man film where Spider-man fought the Lizard.  But no....  we just HAD to shoe-horn in the farking new origin.

Because no one knows how Spidey became Spidey.  0_o

Which is kind of funny, because selling off the valuable properties is what helped to keep Marvel afloat financially for years. The reason marvel survived long enough to make an Iron Man movie of their own is because Fox paid them a shiat load of cash for the X-men (and Sony for Spider-man). And of course the reason they made an Iron Man movie was because they didn't own the rights to any of their top tier characters.

Hell I would like to see a FF movie that lives up to the overall quality of what Fox has done with the X-men movies. I mean sure Origins was pretty bad and X3 was terribly executed. But at the same time X-Men 2 was way, way better than Iron Man 2.

And not only made Iron Man a top tier character, but made a better movie than ANY of the competing films, barring the original Spider-man film that Sony made (which is dating more and more by the day due to piss poor cgi and Goblin's ridiculous power ranger outfit).

I'm Kirby freak....was very lucky to meet him once and have an extended conversation with him on Kammandi, as well as his encounters with the Nazis after depicting them unfavorably in some of his work.

I gots no problems with His Purple Badness.

Anyone recall the Keith Giffin Justice League where they ripped Galactus a *new* one?  He loved gaudy colors and was very similar to the guys my wife watches on the fashion designing shows.   "OOOH, that's *fabulous*..."

Don't completely agree...the Spider-Man costumes have been great, and they've been very similar to the comics.  Same with Thor & Captain America for the most part (I still want the wings).  If done properly a Wolverine costume could work.

But NOTHING is better than those JLA costumes from the failed pilot in the 90s...man, that's some high quality super suits there!

I loved the FF when I was a kid, and I hated the movies along with everybody else.

However, I am going to throw out something pretty sophisticated here and we'll see if the rest of you like it: When adapting an existing media property, one must be mindful of why its worth adapting. No one will make any money if it stinks, and the only things worth adapting have already proven that they can do that very thing. A retooled alien version of Spider-Man who has no super powers and fights computer hacker/surfers in LA? Sounds moderately interesting, but it will almost definitely be awful. Spider-Man with MORE spider powers (just like they did the first time)? Just fine, only the most hardcore care that it's a plot point at all.

However, in this gold rush to cash in on properties that are doing well, some companies got stuck with some less-than-gold material to work with. The Fantastic Four is one of those. Comics are very popular. Comic book movies are "In". Individually, the whole format is a loss leader and piece for piece some of these comics are pigs. Wonder Woman is inevitably cancelled every two years. The Fantastic Four at Marvel is like coming in division 9th in April - good team, never gonna win the cup. Inevitably, someone over in Hollywood decides they have an idea which will fix the adaptation, and then spin the concept in the press in such a way that they believe represents them as clever, creative people. The TMNT are now aliens because we have a different vision of the character and we want the audience to relate to the characters better (or someone thought Marvel "owned" the word "mutant" somehow and got afraid). This is always a transparent failure to everybody, but they have to try. We comic book fans are a self over-representing group that constantly tries to punch well above our weight and sometimes we get a bit annoying about this latter phenomenon when defending the former.

Sometimes it works out though. He's one of the flat-out greatest writers of comics ever and arguably one of the greatest (Top 250?) writers of modern times - but let's admit something here: Zach Snyder's ending to the Watchmen made way more sense ;).

He does a great job with visuals in his movies but they all lack something that makes the movie great.

I thought so. I haven't really read comics in a while. Just got back into them about a month ago but I still kept up by reading synapses and watching reviews on YouTube. I do not remember where I heard that quote though but it was funny.

Fano: The Fantastic Four are always terrible. Only notable as a historical curiosity, one of the first comics to focus on the family dynamics of superheroes.


If you don't have the Byrne, Simonson, Waid/Wieringo, and Hickman runs of FF in your collection; your collection is terrible.  Which, since you disparage the comic that is the basis for the entire goddamn Marvel UNIVERSE, it's obvious you have terrible taste anyway.

Jesus, some of you people are farking DUMB about comics.  Snyder's Watchmen ending is spectacularly stupid because it fails in its goal to unite Humanity against a common threat: Veidt's plan in the movie just unites everyone against America, which is just a worsening of the USSR vs USA Cold War going on.  Man, if I ever need to know the exact opposite of what's good in comics or adaptations of them, I read Fark.

Optimal_Illusion: frepnog: ristst: Until the horrible Galactus appearance as a cloud thing rather than a 2nd part.

it was better than a giant in a purple outfit.  because classic Galactus is farking retarded.

Well, it's said that Galactus only looks like a giant dude to Humans.  Other creatures and races would see him as giant versions of themselves.  So, if you see him as a giant retard.........


You.  You I like.  People saying real Galactus can't work on film are clueless.  EVERY and ANYthing can and will work on film in the hands of talented creators.  That's the real problem with the Fox and Sony Marvel flicks, they keep getting the bush league to make them.
