The NEW Fantastic Four Cast!

Our new superhero family

By Robert T. Trate     February 20, 2014
Source: Variety

We have our new first family of Marvel! Variety is reporting that the FOX has their new Fantastic Four. Though, apparently, they are not all signed officially. Miles Teller (Divergent) will play Mr. Fantastic , Kate Mara (Iron Man 2) will play The Invisible Woman, and Jamie Bell (The Adventures of Tintin) will be The Thing. They will join Michael B. Jordan (Chronicle) as The Human Torch. 

The reboot of the series will adhere to Stan Lee and Jack Kirby’s original comic, but with the modern sensibilities of Brian Michael Bendis and Mark Millar’s Ultimate Fantastic Four

Josh Trank (Chronicle) will direct the picture with Simon Kinberg, Matthew Vaughn (Kick-Ass) and Gregory Goodman (X-Men: First Class) serving as producers. The script was just given a polish by Kinberg (Star Wars Rebels), which got the picture back on track. 

The Fantastic Four is slated to arrive June 19, 2015.

 I don't know.  I just don't know what to think about this casting.  I'm not sure anyone at FOX did either.  

Let's get it out of the way.  Jamie Bell as Thing?  Not my first choice.  Wasn't even on my list.  

Sue Storm's brother is black?  OK.  That I can deal with.  Adoption.  Different fathers/mothers.  Her ex-husband.  

I have no idea who Miles Teller is.  I haven't seen anything he's been in, so that could be a positive.

I like Kate Mara.  She was good on AHS season 1.  I think a blonde haired Rooney Mara would better fit Sue in my mind's eye.

It's not the way I would have gone but I'm not making it. I am open to any possibility as long as I end up with a big smile on my face when watching the movie.

 Monkeyfoot- You sound like you'd try and take it up the ass if it put a smile on your face too.....dammm duude.....  ; )

And oh yes Fox is really getting it together with the Marvel properties. Johnny Storm is Supposed to be Sue Storms blood brother yet he's black. Good one Fox. And no I dont care if he's adopted.....WHY just WHY!!!!?????

Not to mention Mr. F and the Thing is HORRIBLY miscast as well. That KID is supposed to be the world's smartest man? Im sure all super inventors know you need atleast plenty of experience and time with life and gadgets to be able to do the things Mr. Fantastic does. That dude just got out of Jr. High!

And the Thing.... ugghhhh... that guy is not the Thing. He looks like a goblin from The Hobbit movies. He is way too skinny and too ugly to even be the Thing who is one of the ugliest guys in Marvel. haha

Once again, I know boycotting a movie like Xmen is impossible for most of us, but for the guys who agree with me, i still encourage you to simply buy tickets to another movie, and just walk into Xmen or FF if you must watch it. They'll make millions regardless, but i'll be damned if they get MY money too. It's just the principle of it for me. >=)   Long live the Real Xmen!!   LOL

Miles Teller is 27 - ulitmate Reed Richards is 26. That's in line with the comics. But a black Johnny Storm is just stupid. I don't care how they change the story. Why not a white JS and a black Ben Grimm so not to overlycomplicate things? Or make all of the Storms black? What a moronic decision.

I am often the one to say slow down and wait until you see if before you critic how good or bad it is going to turn out. I will say... my spidery senses are tingling at this time. I will remain open to find out more... but, hmmmmm.

This will be the worst comic book movie adaption ever..................................does WB own Fox ??  LOL !!

 FAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIL!!!

Not even on Netflix. Fox is not getting my cash to screw over a movie that should be easy to make that honors the source material. Hell, even the first one barely did that!

monkeyfoot 2/20/2014 8:50:27 AM

Violator, at least offer to buy me a drink first! Damn!

All I'm saying is I much prefer the comic be adapted more traditionally. I grew up on the original FF, not the Ultimate version. I was fairly ok with the cast from the first two Fox FF movies but I thought they were kind of blah generic superhero movies. But as I said I'm not making these. Since I'm not, I can rant and scream for days about how wrong they got it but all that would do is make me mad. With all the suprise casting on varous comic book movies I'm just worn out with that. I have no control over it anyway.

So what to do? Since I'm not making it, I'm hoping the filmmakers have as much love for the comics as I do and will do right by them. It won't be the movie I would make but I'm not making it so it will NEVER be that. AlI  I can hope for is a good movie of the comic that the director, writer, actors, and producer feel best represents their vision of it. Hopefully, I will enjoy it, too.
