The Fantastic Four movies were definitely a let down to be honest, so don’t start grumbling about this. Fantastic Four is getting a reboot. Remember Marvel has gotten a LOT better in the movies arena since those movies came out, so shush. Now I’m not sure if this is FACT but according to THR here’s the synopsis of the Fantastic Four reboot
Dr. Doom is said to be the villain of the reboot (the character appeared in Fox’s two previous movies and was played by Julian McMahon). The Hollywood Reporter’s Heat Vision is hearing that the studio is likely to go for a big name and isn’t ruling out switching genders for the role.
Sidebar: Not really sure what “Heat Vision” has to do with “hearing” tho. /End Sidebar
SO. Dr. Doom might be a SHE? (fine you can grumble a little bit) I’m hoping that they aren’t going to pull that Mandarin crap again. Let Dr. Doom be a man. Thanks in advance.
As far as the cast is concerned, THR reports that “The only person attached to the reboot at this point is Michael B. Jordan, due to Fox exercising the option it had on the actor after Chronicle, also directed by Trank. Jordan will play the Human Torch.”
Is Michael B Jordan the Jessica Alba of the movie? The “token” person of color? THR also states that
According to multiple insiders, Kate Mara and Emmy Rossum tested for the part of Sue Storm, aka the Invisible Woman, on Tuesday.
So Sue and Johnny are going to be adopted brother and sister OR half siblings OR step brother/sister. *cough*token*cough* I’m not sure. I mean it’s not like they didn’t do the same with Jessica Alba. *shrugs*
Guess we’ll find out when more details are released. Thoughts?
