My views on what different should be done in order to Make Fantastic Four (Reboot) a better movie.

A few days ago FOX/MARVEL announced the Speculated Reboot of Fantastic Four with release date of March 6, 2015 and was super excited and was having mixed feeling cause i wasn't expecting a release date so sudden and we have just 2 years and 3 months before we can see the Most Powerful Families in Comic-Book World in Big Screen again.

Here i present my views.

I am not suggesting any cast(its for Fan cast and they do it pretty well) but main part is acting. In FF and FF:ROTSS i like Ioan Gruffudd as Mr. Fantastic, Chris Evans as Human Torch but Jessica Alba and Michael Chiklis wasn't that great. Michael chiklis is a good actor but was waste so this makes it a bad cast.

I think the Origin Story has already been told and its not that very Interesting so i would hope they do it as Opening credits Scene as an Origin story just like in WATCHMEN(2009) and THE INCREDIBLE HULK(2008). There is an other way to tell the origin story in Dr. Doom's Perspective(the real story) not Electro-like power with biological armor skin. this way we can show what Dr. Doom is all about in the Comics coz we love a hero more when villain is Bad-ass.

In Comics, Fantastic Four were busy Saving the World and in some cases Universe and New York City few times. So what i want is to see Fantastic Four Flying around the world and try to save it because they have The Rogue Gallery which can give a serious problem or Red Alert Situation in the Whole of Earth. FF:Rise of the silver Surfer tried it upto extent but somehow lacked.

Now Everyone knows how Great Marvel's The Avenger was. but it is a Superhero Team and Fantastic four is Superhero Family. They Should act like a family not like a team. FF don't have character build up like in avengers with Iron Man,Captain America,Hulk and others. but FF to have great characters to make a great movie.

The Reason why Galactus was made as cosmic cloud is the reason Director thought he would not look good in purple. what i'm saying is Hawkeye purple was changed into more Plausible Maroon and Black..and In movie nowadays changes are made to look them better for example Superman in MOS(2013), Hawkeye in Avengers(2012) and Thor Without helmet in Thor(2011) and Even Captain America. Costume should be More plausible then imposed.

So Here i Conclude my Views on what i want to see in Upcoming Fantastic Four Reboot. These are my Views. Any Suggestion or Views are happily accepted.

Hope it's not another origin story.

1. Negative Zone
2. More screen time for [frick]ing Dr. Doom
3 . Doombots
4. Latveria
5. Annihillus
And also one small tidbit a Galactus that looks like himself and not a [frick]ing storm cloud!!

I second that notion, lol:)

Anyways, good article. I absolutely love the fantastic four, and I hope fox gets their stuff together this time. And as others have said, space travel, out-of-their-mind technology graphics, and a lot more doom and silver surfer.

AcidicHeart's Top Ten Tips for the Success of the Fantastic Four Reboot:

1. Involve adventuring. Whether it be space exploration, time travel or something else, involve adventuring!
2. Give Reed Richards something actually scientific to do.
3. Have Dr. Doom be Dr. Doom. That means already sovereign of Latveria, global threat and enemy of the Fantastic Four. He need not be the main villain, but he should have an important role.
4. Have someone who isn't acting in a state of complete catatonia for Susan Storm.
5. Focus on the effects and the action. Make it a visual marvel.
6. Hint at the larger universe. Whether it be a cameo from Galactus, involving the Negative Zone or encountering Giganto, show that the Fantastic Four will be dealing with various threats in the future.
7. Please use CGI for Ben Grimm. Please.
8. Do not retell the origin story. You can mention it or perhaps involve a flashback sequence, but start in medias res. We want to see the Fantastic Four develop, not start out.
9. Focus on the family drama that has defined the Fantastic Four since their inception. What makes them different is that they have to live with each other at all times, and they are a group out of necessity, not of choice.
10. Have it be made by Marvel Studios :D

As far as I am aware, they depicted Galactus as a "cloud" because the director wanted to keep him mysterious so they cold build up to a big reveal in the 3rd film.
