View Full Version : Fantastic Four 2 Predictions
Well in the news avi arad has said there will be a sequel so lets think up our fanboy thoughts on what can turn the first one to history and get the action, story, and characters back on the side of "best superhero films ever".
Villian: Galactus would be the best for the job. Second would be Mole Man but i dont think he would do a good job for the film.
Story: More exploring maybe in the negitive zone?
Director: I want a different director on this but I think they'll keep Tim Story...which I dont think is a good idea.
Actors: Well I hate it when the actors are changed in sequels so I say just keep em as it is and lets hope it will work out better.
Reed & Sue wedding?: If they actually think of doing this I think it'll be ok but I hope they dont over-do it with them planning it through the whole film.
Doom: I want him off from the sequel...maybe a return in a third film...if there will be a third film.
Note: they should really make a fight scene be longer and more action packed. *spoiler from first film*When the final battle with Doom happened it was a quick thing and now most people that I kno saw it, dont remember anything but doom frozen at the end...*end of spoiler*
Well I said most of what I got to say...What do you think will go for the sequel?
I think it would be awesome if Galactus came in #2 or #3, it would be a very good set-up for a Silver Surfer movie (coveinantly the Silver Surfer's movie rights are also owned by Fox), but I doubt it will happen. I hope Doom is in #2 (though not like he was in #1) and I hope he's more like he is in the comics. As for who else? I could see them going to the negative zone and have something happen much like it happened recently in Ult. FF. Aside from that, I really don't know. the Mole would be cool, but not as the main villian. I would like to see a scene that basically replicates the classic FF #1 issue cover (http://www.comics2film.com/DCG/DispArt.php3?f_id=3365&f_ssn=&f_fooble=7), but that's just me.

Well, Avi has said that he wants to see the Puppet Master for the sequel. Me, personally, I'd love to see the Skrulls, and maybe a showdown with the Super Skrull.
That, potentially, might even tie in with Galactus and Silver Surfer. Now how cool would that be, huh?
Ok, story idea! Have you heard about how some fire fighters fight forest fires? They set a controlled fire in the path of the oncoming blaze, when they put that out, the fire runs out of room and dies out. Maybe the Skrulls would be like that. They destroy planets marked to be devoured by Galactus, and the Fantastic 4 interrupts them only to find out that Galactus is going to eat up their planet! Someone get Avi Arad on the phone, NOW!

Galactus is a good choice but I love Easy D's idea of the Super Skrull. I remember him fighting Spider-Man, Ms Marvel, and the Human Torch in a Marvel Team-Up arc and he's one of the more formidable villains in the Marvel Universe. I know it sounds hokey, a Skrull with the combined powers of the Fantastic Four, but if handled properly he is one very scary bad guy. And it wouldn't take much backstory to set him up, either. I recently re-watched Fellowship of the Ring and the first half hour of that film is a marvel in terms of economical storytelling. On a smaller scale, they could set up a backstory of the Skrull/Kree wars at the beginning of the sequel and then dive right into how the Super Skrull got his powers and why he hates the FF.
In the sequel I would really prefer to have a different director. Nothing against Story, I realise that he's a young man trying to make his mark in Hollywood, but I would prefer to have someone who could bring a greater sense of awe and wonderment to the franchise. A little more care needs to be put into the script as well. And as for lead roles, I wouldn't mind seeing Reed recast. I understand why Alba was cast and it makes sense for them to want to keep her as Sue, but Reed could be played by a different actor and it wouldn't hurt the sequel. As for Doom, I don't really want to see him again unless he assumes his rightful role as the despot of Latveria and they create believable motivation as to why he wants to assert his dominance over every living creature on the planet.

I've heard that there's an all-out tug-of-war between the FANTASTIC FOUR franchise and the SILVER SURFER franchise. The FF director wants Surfer and Galactus for FF3, while the SS head honcho doesn't want Surfer to be an Elektra-like spinoff doomed to medicrity. I've heard either Robert Rodriguez (SIN CITY) or even Quentin Tarantino (KILL BILL) would like a shot at the Surfer as its own movie.
I tend to agree that spinoffs never work (see: Elektra, Catwoman) for a # of reasons. Sequels work, but spinoffs don't. It seems to me that it's an "either OR" deal here, not and a "this AND that" deal. Either SS is a sequel guy OR he's a franchise guy. Extremely difficult to be both. If that's the case, The Silver Surfer's better served by being his own movie and leaving the FF behind.

Well, I could see why the folks in Marvel are little antsy about spin off characters, but that probably not going to stop them from giving Wolverine his own movie. But there was a reason that Elektra and Catwoman failed. Now I've never seen Catwoman, but from what I heard, everything about that movie was just bad. Probably shouldn't even qualify as a spin off because it had nothing to do with the Batman universe. But Elektra was completely different. It remained (somewhat, a little bit) faithful to the Daredevil universe. But the poor story did it in. Maybe the release date didn't help, either (January, the refuse movie month.)
Now, if Silver Surfer did have a strong enough story, they could possibly make a spin off movie and still be successful. And, who knows, maybe the Surfer can be the next Wolverine, in terms of popularity. He's already visually iconic character (like Ghost Rider, or Captain America), maybe this could be his next step up.

While I think a Silver Surfer/Galactus appearance would be dandy, The Mole Man has some appeal. I'd spare SS and Galactus for #3. Skrulls for #4
Between Thunderbolts and Mole Man if you ask me.
Skrulls for #4
A fourth film?!?!?
What are they going to call it?
Fantastic Four 4???
...ok I'm just saying thats stupid.
Skrulls for #3...a trilogy is better.

I think the FF films will have a subtitle.
"Fantastic Four vs. The High Evolutionary" or something like that.
Well, alright, not exactly like that, but something like...that...uh...er...
"Fantastic Four : And Then Some" er..no...wait...
"Fantastic Forever".... :evil: :evil: :evil: http://www.cyprusfan.alivewww.co.uk/emoticons/1shifty.gif

The Fantastic Four movie was alright, but they definitely could have done a hell of alot better with the movie.Tim Story is not all that good of a director, and I hope that the sequel will do alot better.
Prediction? Due to the amount of money Fantastic 4 made opening weekend, Tim Story will be BACK as director to perform MORE of his "magic" (since audiences OBVIOUSLY love comedic/campy comic movies) and we'll get an even worse movie than this time out.
Can anyone say "Joel Schumacher?" I knew you could. :P

Don't worry. Sparingly, it won't do us harm. Now if you said it 160 more times....WE"RE ALL DOOMED!

The way #1 ended, I would have to say that they are preparing to bring back Doom in the sequel as the (you said it first, Norin Radd) despot ruler of Latveria. It seemed fairly reasonable to assume that. And I wouldn't mind it, to be honest, because I think a valid criticism of the film was that they didn't have a much longer, BIGGER fight out sequence with Doom. In an FF sequel, it'd be great to see them fighting him on his home soil, in his castle in Latveria.......something like that. I know it sound's kinda corny, but I wouldn't be adverse to it.
I've heard that the Puppet Master is a real consideration for a sequel as well.
