The Radioactive Man has a costume worse than his moniker.  Unbelievable, but true.  I'm leery of them using this character.

I can't be the only one who saw the title, and thought they were making a movie about Radioactive Man from "The Simpsons"

I never even read that Radioactive Man is in this movie.  Hm.

Who is playing Fallout Boy?

Costume is a stretch, he wears a containment suit. It isn't about fashion like most superheroes it's about practicability

Anyway would love to see him in a future Thunderbolts film. He was part of one the really good stretches of the series

@ Thunderbolts, it was explained that he has complete control over the radioactive element of his powers, but was suggested by Osborn to wear the containment suit to look better for the american masses. 

He was very well written in the Thunderbolts series, and I actually came to like his character because of it.  Before he was in TBolts, I was very unimpressed by him.  Let's hope that he comes across as well in a movie.  Without a green toga.

The villain side seems to be getting too crowded. That isn't usually good for a superhero movie. Hope they have the plot and direction to make it all work.
