Who should play the Fantastic Four? (Plus: Will Doctor Doom be a woman?)

Some more news about the upcoming Fantastic Four film. I gotta say I am all for changes and off kilter casting but the changes that are happening with this film seem like a group of people who are disregarding the source material entirely.

Just make a new film. Don’t call it an adaptation. It seems empty and disrespectful. JJ. Abrams, while I’m at it, are you listening? Whoever is taking over the Star Trek franchise are you listening?

X-Men vs. Fantastic Four Movie Story Revealed (Rumor)

This is a great article giving the run down on the problems and benefits of the possible upcoming Sony film.

Movie Prescription

So I was online looking up movie news like I usually do and I came across a rumor stating that Fox is looking to have a shared movie universe  between the X-men franchise and the Fantastic Four Franchise and that they already have the story they are looking to use.

At the time, my friend and former editor Justin Aclin tweeted about it and then wrote about it on his blog. I’ve cross-posted the rest of Justin’s thoughts after the jump.

And come back later in the day as Justin will be my special guest on Hard N.O.C. Life where we’ll discuss his latest book for Dark Horse, S.H.O.O.T. First.

Fantastic Four (1994)

Take a look at this review of the infamous first Fantastic Four adaptation.
The weird thing about this film is, if you ignore the obvious oversteps, like the youth of the actors and the shmacty acting, it really understands the spirit of the Silver Age comics. I think it is a more worthy comic book adaptation then a lot of adaptations out there. Batman Returns, Forever, and Robin; I’m looking at you.
