I'm not a big fan of the Fantastic Four, but I don't hate them either. The movies weren't terrible, and quite honestly they could have been longer.

Fantastic Four is reboot is scheduled to be in theaters in 2013, here is who I would cast.



Matt Damon as Reed Richards

Damon just fits to me, I think he is smart enough to pull off the role. In the Marvel universe, nobody is smarter than Reed Richards,and I think Damon can succeed in that kind of role.



Charlize Theron as Susan Storm-Richards

When Jessica Alba was playing Susan, I didn't really like the character, she almost seemed just fake to me. I like Jessica Alba as an actress, I just don't think that role was for her. I think Theron could play the role and make the character seem less corny.



Bruce Willis as Ben Grimm

I tried to find somebody else, I really did. But Willis is the Ben Grimm, and that's just all there is to it.




Mike Vogel as Johnny Storm

He fits... and that is all.



Mark Strong as Victor Von Doom

The guy fits! I almost casted the guy that played Sabertooth in the Wolverine movie. But Mark Strong is in my opinion the perfect choice for Victor Von Doom.

Vogel certainly looks the part, in fact he's the most Johnny-looking actor in a fan cast I've ever seen. Never seen him act tho, so no idea on that.

Not sure about the rest

@ACira He played in the monster movie named Cloverfield which was directed by Matt Reeves and produced by J.J Abrams.

If you get dizzy easily, I wouldn't suggest watching the movie.

Vogel: Yes. Theron and Willis: Maybe. Damon and Strong: No.

I'd like to point out that I know that Strong is a great actor and would do great things for the role of Victor, but he's been used as the villain in two good films, already, and a supporting hero-ish person in a good film ((all in the past three years, mind you!))

@jjmeylar It's not like one more film is going to ruin his reputation is it? Or is it that you've seen him enough in the villain role, that you would like him to play something else?

What's the problem with Damon as Reed?

Okay, not bad. The two good choices are for the human torch, and maybe von doom

@ CaptainDC I figured those were going to be the two that people liked.

I'm guessing the reason people don't like Damon as RIchards is because of the power that he has and the fact that Matt Damon is looked at as this cool dude, while Reed Richards in some comic book fans eye seem like a super-nerd.

@ndwwrestler2: I'd just like to see him as something else. As for Damon....I just can't see him as Reed Richards. I dunno why.

NOT Damon, no way. I like Willis as Ben

Vogel is good, but I think Ryan Mcpartlin is a better fit for Johnny.

He's just got more of that douche-baggy "the ladies love me because im sexy and I KNOW it" thing going on. And he's also managed to play an asshole very well, yet still make me laugh while wanting to punch his lights out.
