An African-American JS  hmmmmmmm.................... very interesting.  As for the whole FF casting, I think I'll hold any further comments until I see a trailer.

Rizing, I agree with you my friend. Marvel needs to get back all rights to their property posthaste.

Garbage. Fail. Worst casting ever.  Actually, if they are doing the Ultimate version, Sue & Reeds choices are not bad.  Guy for Ben??? really? We are supposed to believe that this guy was an all star athlete / fighter/test pilot? Cause in every iteration of Ben, he was the jock roomate of Reed.  Thats why there were friends, cause why would they meet otherwise!! Johnny Storm... NO. Just wrong.  Now you have to completely make up a stupid back story as to why they are siblings.  I didn't see GR 2, not because I protested it, just no interest.  This will be the first Marvel movie, that I will outright never watch. Not even to see how bad it will be. Damn you FOX for ruining everything Marvel.

Yeah, Jamie Bell as Grimm doesn't seem to fit with any comic book version of the character. I don't see the thinking on it. I'm waiting to see if there will be some explanation from the director and cast. I'd also like alittle of the basic plot given. And of course, the production drawings, cast photos in costume, sets, etc.

I've just got total Nerd Outrage Drain. Right now, the casting isn't so extremely outrageous as if they had cast Jack Black, Dame Judi Densch, Gary Busey, and Tracy Morgan in the roles.

The FF are damaged goods from the last two films Fox screwed over. So at this point I don't think Marvel is any hurry to get them back. Marvel still gets a cut of the profits, not as much as they'd get if they had all the rights but still a big slice any way. The FF comic hasn't been selling that well and the most recent volume was just canceled. So Marvel is probably content to make money off this, it's more than whatever they're making off the comic.

 redvector it isn't just to get the rights back for FF. It's to get the rights back so we can have a good Galactus !

I'm not going to prejudge this film because they did a racial change on one the main characters. Kerry Washington in the first FF was great. So was the late Michael Clark Duncan in Daredevil. The films they were in were pretty flawed but I don't consider their performances contributed to that. 

As for the rest, I'm just not famliar enough with the others to know if they are a good fit or not.  And I think its always important to point out in these situations that so many thought Heath Ledger was a bad choice as Joker then preceeded to  blow us all away. 

BTW, the rumor that they were going to make Johnny and Sue mutants in order to tie them into the Xmen; was that debunked or are they still  going to do that?

Hi guys, going in for my heart surgery tomorrow but had to stop by and just comment on this.

I think Fox is actually trying to beat Corman's version for worst FF movie ever. Seriously. A black human torch? Any else see the hiliarious racial innuendo with that? Burnt torch? Black? Yeah WTG Fox.

This will be the mother of all lame FF movies. Geez just give the franchise back to Marvel and let them do it RIGHT. I actually loved Chikilas as The Thing. He was perfect for the role I thought. Right demeanor and everything. I personally would have brought him back.

I am not sure what everyone's problem with the cast of the first group was. Besides needing to recast Sue and Johnny I liked Reed and Ben. Good choices for the characters.

So this is a cluster F waiting to happen.

Peace out people. Here's hoping to see in a few days. Laz out, Fox Sux.

Just got of the hospital myself. Not fun, but I'm getting better. Take care, Lazuarus.
I just don't feel the casting here either.  I actually thought that was one of the very few good things about the Corman version was at least the characters looked right, even if the movie was awesomely cheap. We'll have to see on this new one I guess.
