Fantastic Four reboot cast idea

#1 Posted by sunhawk (550 posts) - - Show Bio

Jeff Goldblum as Reed Richards

Amanda Tapping as Sue Storm

Jesse Spencer as Jonny Storm

Micheal Chiklis again as The Thing

and Hugo Weaving as Victor von Doom

since the reboot doesn't have to be an origin story like what the second hulk movie did. then we can use older actors.

I reckon it will be an origin story but i HOPE it isn't. And i think Hugo won't play another comic book character for a while after what he said about being Red Skull.

I have a feeling that this new movie's going to have a younger FF. Ultimate style.

I didn't say anything about his ethnicicty....he's an odd choice, A) because he looks so young and B) I've seen Ninja Assassin and Speed Racer. His acting is underwhelming.

Speed Racer is for rednecks..Ninja Assassin on the other hand is an underrated masterpiece...

This is the first time that I have seen Amanda Tapping nominated to play Sue Storm and I have read threads like this one on many different boards. I could definitely live with Amanda, as I liked her in Stargate SG-1, but she would not be my first choice. Goldblum is an interesting one for Reed Richards. I remember him from Jurassic Park. Again, I could live with him, but would probably prefer someone else. Many seem to like Chiklis as the Thing. Again, I can deal with that. As for the Torch, I do not know Jesse Spencer, so I cannot comment. Personally, I really want the new Captain America actor to return as the Torch, but I suppose that is very unlikely. Chris Evans was absolutely perfect as Johnny Storm in the first two films. He was the only one that I thought truly stood out, though I thought everyone did an acceptable job at playing their parts. How about Amy Adams as Alicia Masters with her lovely red hair, though if she had blonde hair she could pass very easily for Sue Storm with her pretty blue eyes and fair skin?

I do not really have a cast in mind but I do hope that for the reboot of the movies they have the team older, With Sue and Reed already married.

It won't be. If Marvel can't tolerate MJ and Peter in the comics anymore(obligatory: **** YOU QUESADA!), there's no way a movie with a married couple is going to go through. Though I'd really like to see it.

Its sad but you are right. As much as I believe that the FF comics got stronger after Sue and Reed got married and at this point there marriage is so critical to the team and the comic its self. Fox will want a clean origin story but maybe they could do a trilogy first movie Sue and Reed get together, second then get married and the third she gets pregnant and has Franklin.

Quesada was a fool ruin Peter and MJ the way he did, I mean he took the JMS written Peter that was more of an adult( and the book was selling HUGE) and said NO Peter has to be a 30 year old man child and how did that effect the books sales in a pretty negative way. I just hope Slott gets them back together after this whole Superior Spider-Man arc is finished.

I'd like to seee Noah Wyle play Mr.Fantastic, big fan of his, one of the reasons I like Falling Skies

#18 Posted by Omega Ray Jay (7497 posts) - - Show Bio

I'd like to see an unknown given the Doom role, fed up of seeing obvious casting in the villain roles, like Hugo Weaving in Cap who in my opinion was the worst part of that movie and the worst villain in Phase 1.

Yeah I think he would be great in the role. I was trying to find actors capable of playing Reed, Doom, and Ben that were around the same age but still somewhat older then Sue and around 10 years older then Johnny so I was really happy to find Benedict Cumberbatch and Ryan Hurst were the same age, Reed is a little tougher for me to decide on but Eion Bailey can do it.
