    Fantastic Four Reboot?

    Post  Brendan on Tue Mar 10, 2009 2:49 am

    It looks like Marvel has a hard-on for reboots of films that are barely even a few years old.

    IESB's has heard word around town is Fantastic Four over at 20th Century Fox is gearing up for a reboot.

    With Daredevil already getting the once over and Planet of the Apes also in the running for a new start with a prequel in the works Fantastic Four is joining the reboot gang.

    The two films previously released never really caught on with the fans and the studio is reportedly looking to completely retool, recast and recrew the franchise. This means no Tim Story, no Iaon, no Julian (thank the maker, he never sat well with me as Dr. Doom), no Chris, no Chiklis and no Jessica.

    The first Fantastic Four in 2005 pulled in over $330 million worldwide and the second film, Fantastic Four Rise of the Silver Surfer, opened in 2007 with a total box office take of $290 million. Both made money and were commercial successes but the reviews were lackluster and the fan reaction was mediocre.

    The franchise is looking to be "less bubble gum" this time round following the Iron Man template, which was a complete success in reviews and box office take but a bit darker when it came to its superhero. Iron Man was in no way as dark as The Dark Knight but was funny, action-y as well as a bit on the serious side.

    Now who do you want as Mr. Fantastic this time out? Which director would be the best choice to bring this story to the screen once again?

    Guess this means no more Jessica Alba. Sad

    Sad thing is, I like Ioan Gruffold as Reed and Chiklis as The Thing. I like Julian McMahon, but I don't think Doom was right for him. Alba and Evans were the worse for their parts. Alba moreso.

    Funny thing is I thought I'd have a hard time taking Chris Evans serious as an actor after seeing F4, but I watched Sunshine again recently and I actually found myself liking his character the most in that movie.

    I hope they wait ten years or something. Too many reboots all at once!

    I didn't think he was a good actor in the FF movies. I'm not a huge FF fan, so I'm not sure how Johnny really is.

    I never liked how Jessica Alba didn't look anything like Susan Storm. She needs to be played by a natural look blonde.

    I love Alba too,but she was too annoying&awful in the F4 movies. And Yes F4 need a reboot like a crack needs drugs lol.Plus I think Marvel should get Jason Staham to play DareDevil in the DD reboot and get Jackie Chan to play Sticks(because he do stunts and he's a martial artist too and he's cool).Very Happy
