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?

I thought we already had a good Fantastic Four movie. It was called The Incredibles.

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

I'm guessing that like the Superman and Spiderman reboots it's all about keeping the rights from reverting?

/The Venture Bros Fantastic Four episode was far better than and F4 movie will ever be.

I can`t imagine a more miscast actor in that role.

The Beef?

The Clooney?

unlikely: 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.

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.

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.

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

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.
