Dream Cast Fantastic Four Reboot

So Disney has decided to reboot the Fantastic Four Franchise, not a bad idea I guess, I liked the first two, but I can see where there is a lot (A LOT) of room for improvement, so I decided to reboot it myself with an older cast, The Fantastic Four have always seemed like they should be in there late 30’s early 40's to me any way except Johnny he should be in his late 20's, how else would they accomplish so much, so here ’s my Fantastic Four Dream Cast.


Mr.Fantastic – Billy Crudup

I needed a slightly geeky yet still handsome actor who would be good at acting like an absent minded scientist, Crudup is a good actor and has already had his first taste of comic book movies so he wins the part.


Invisible Woman – Charlize Theron

Invisible woman is supposed to be this incredibly attractive woman, so much so that about every foe and sometimes friend of the Fantastic Four fall in love with her, so we needed a 30 something actress who is incredibly beautiful, I went with Theron because I know she can do the action and she is a looker.


Human Torch – Eric Christian Olsen

I thought the original casting of Johnny was perfect, so I didn’t want to stray far but I also didn’t want to cast the same person, and since Eric here doesn’t age like a human he can still pull off the late twenties guy I was looking for


The Thing – Domenick Lomardozzi

I thought Chiklis was a good cast, but he wasn’t good looking enough, so here’s the more muscly, better looking, version of Chiklis, Lomardozzi, watch him on The Wire, he’s a perfect Ben Grimm.


Dr.Doom – Jason Isaacs

A dark mysterious actor with incredible charisma was needed for this part, and as Lucious Malfoy in the Harry Potter movies he’s already done this part minus the Mask


Namor – Donnie Yen

I know Namor isn’t Asian, but why do they always draw him that way, I went with the awesome martial artist Donnie Yen who physically and mentally is perfect for the arrogant King of Atlantis


Mole Man – Danny DeVito

Mole Mans physical deformities make it hard to cast him , but the only human who fits the bill is DeVito, plus watch Batman Returns, that’s basically Mole Man already.


Alicia Masters – Jerri Ryan

A beautiful blind sculptress who ends up falling for The Thing, who better than the gorgeous Jeri Ryan.

Too bad it's only fox,not Disney
georgia49th - 2/9/2010, 10:43 AM
Brilliant picks
Doctor Doom is Jason Isaacs
Mole Man = Danny DeVito perfect choice
But you need someone for Medusa Johhny's love intrest
Lindsay Lohan for Medusa
MrSuperheromoviefan - 2/9/2010, 11:36 AM
Billy Crudup is too old.
Theron is an interesting choice.
I don't know your Human Torch.
I agree with the Thing.
Jason Isaacs is an interesting choice, too.
DeVito is way too old.
Jerri Ryan is too old, too.
Nice cast.
MrSuperheromoviefan - 2/9/2010, 11:37 AM
I forget.Namor asian?Interesting.Very interesting indeed.

Thanks Everyone I love that you get actual constructive criticism instead of fanboy crybabies it makes this stuff much more fun to do, now to defend my choices
Real age vs appearance, it seems no one understands that in Hollywood just because your 40 doesn't mean all your characters are, Seth Green still plays really young people and he's in his mid 30's, also Mole Man is like 60 how is DeVito to old, that doesn't even make since come on, Jerri Ryan and Lombardozzi are so close in age that the pair seems realistic, I know Namor isn't Asian I even said they just draw him that way, Eric Christian Olsen is an actor who has been in not another teen movie and fired up among others,MisterFixit, Disney bought Marvel and the Fantastic four Reboot through Fox is not a sure thing I Assume the property will go to Disney and they will reboot the franchise after Fox fails to get it going, I don't want Medusa because I'm casting the Inhumans soon, I didn't focus on a love interest because you have the relation ship of Reed and Sue, and Ben and Alicia, thats enough love. Thanks everyone again

Georgia49th Thanks for the props but I wouldn't put that crack whore in a movie in alead role if my life depended on it, she's better as like a side side character you know, stand there and look hot.
MrSuperheromoviefan - 2/9/2010, 2:21 PM
@Brandonwlobo - Jeri Ryan born February 22, 1968 and Domenick Lombardozzi born March 25, 1976.Jeri Ryan is 8 years biger then Lombardozzi.
Who said that Mole Man is over 60?
If the actors are old then they will not make enough movies.

great cast and love your jhonny pick i think he will do a great job as him since i saw fired up and saw his comedy side to him which is what jhonny is
Shaketaker - 2/9/2010, 3:07 PM
Just because you watch a lot of comic book movies, doesn't mean you have to pull ALL of your actors from OTHER comic book moves. Here are ideas that are slightly outside the box. And I am casting best actors, not giving a lot of regard to age other than the relationship to each other.

Reed Richards: Jay Harrington (Ted, BETTER OFF TED, inspired by John Byrne's Reed)
http://www.celebritywonder.com/picture/Jay_Harrington/JayHarringto_Cohen_10944792.jpg

Susan Storm: January Jones (Betty Draper, MAD MEN. I like Elisha Cuthbert too)
http://www.filmfestivals.com/images/tiff2005galery/images/January%20Jones%20at%20the%20Three%20Burials%20of%20Melquiades%20Estrada%20%20conference.jpg

Johnny Storm: Christopher Masterson (Francis, MALCOLM IN THE MIDDLE)
http://pagesperso-orange.fr/drquinn.frenchsite/Html/Christopher%20Masterson.jpeg

Ben Grimm: Patrick Warburton (Puddy, SEINFELD, also voice of Brock Sampson, VENTURE BROS. Voice and size make him perfect, I loved Chiklis, he just wasn't tall enough. Plus, I kept waiting for him to shoot Terry)
http://seat42f.com/images/stories/tvshows/RulesOfEngagement/patrick-warburton-rules-of-engagement.jpg

Victor Von Doom: Hugo Weaving (V, V FOR VENDETTA. Why? Think of what he did with his voice and his body as V. No would would be better behind Doom's mask, I can't believe no one else has thought of it. He is IT. Out of all of my brilliant choices, this one is the best)
http://www.fanzone50.com/Hugo/Delh.jp

Mole Man: Bob Hoskins (Eddie Valient, WHO FRAMED ROGER RABBIT? A great actor, and he's never played the Penguin. And you have to agree he's closer physically to the part! Mole Man is a short guy, not a little person/midget)
http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_VMyLav76pnU/SBe0om3JVGI/AAAAAAAAACk/Gzgitv3Srn8/s320/Sparkle%2B-%2BBob%2BHoskins.jpg

No Sub-Mariner for you, he will not be in a FF movie due to conflicting studios' ownership of the rights. I do like your choice here.

Okay...let 'er rip!
LEEE777 - 2/9/2010, 4:50 PM
I like 'em cept INVIS an NAMOR!

Can't see NAMOR as Asian, and Theron already just played a superheroine in HANCOCK and gonna be in HANCOCK cough 2 lol.


Got my own MOLEMAN but VITO could be sweet! Good work man!
flames809 - 2/9/2010, 7:47 PM
lee- but what about the guy that played punisher in warzone hes going to be in thor so why cant theron be in ff4 reboot?
MovieMisfit - 2/9/2010, 9:12 PM
GREAT JOB. I have NOTHING bad to say about this fan cast.
MrSuperheromoviefan - 2/10/2010, 7:38 AM
@flames809 - Cause the punisher war zone is a piece os sh1t.If marvel going to do another punisher film is going to be a reboot.Like Reynolds.

@LEEE777 - @flames809 is right.So what if she has play in Hancock?
ManOfIron - 2/10/2010, 8:38 AM
@georgia49th: Lindsay Lohan's crotch for Medusa.

Great cast! except for your Human Torch pick. Love the actor, just not appropriate for this role. He's not the best looking guy. Chris Evans was great for it cuz he was cocky and good looking. Maybe someone like... idk, Justin Hartely lol not saying he should be it, just someone with his personality. needs to be sarcastic, cocky, good looking, agrivating but still likeable. idk, someone can come up w/ something lol
Awesome job though. Probably the best line up i've seen so far. Though, I'm also not a huge fan of Jeri Ryan. Just don't like her lol :P still, i'd give her a shot. I just think if she was Alicia, Ben would be the one who would want to go blind
ManOfIron - 2/10/2010, 8:43 AM
Maybe i've found someone. TANKGIRL cast him as Quicksilver in her latest fancast of the Avengers. Cam Gigandet. He LOOKS like a Johnny type. (see above) idk how he acts though, never seen any of his work that i know of. but he's got the look of young, wreckless, cocky, arrogant, yet good looking playboy.... it would seem that i have something against Johnny Storm... i do not lol
Shaketaker - 2/10/2010, 3:23 PM
Oh yeah...this is not Disney's call, it's Fox's. If Fox doesn't make a new FF movie within a certain period of time, the rights revert back to Marvel/Disney.
Brandonwlobo - 2/10/2010, 10:30 PM
I love Mad Men but January Jones is one of the worst actresses on the planet,
@shaketaker Love your Reed pick, but I was aiming a little older, plus I have him for something else in the future.
And Weaving is fantastic for a voice but he's getting old, and other than maybe 5 minutes screen time in Watchmen with Crudup and DeVito as Penguin what comic stuff do I have? you have two as well Warburton was the Tick and Weaving was in V for Vendetta. I like Hoskins but Hoskins = Super Mario Bros.Yuck. Thanks though I do really like your criticism, I forgot about Masterson, I still like my choice though and girls do think he's hot. I'm behind my choices other than Alicia 100% She was added as a favor I like the Idea of making her black more anyway, that way puppet master can be black and we can add a little range to the cast. NO MEDUSA. I think 2 love stories is enough, plus my Medusa is Mariska Hargitay, Guy Pearce as Blackbolt.
As for the Disney thing see my previous comment,
VictorVonDoom - 2/13/2010, 11:14 AM
Doom called Yen, and DOom stands by Yen.


All fan casting's are how we fans envision our fanvorite character's in real life. If you look at Namor and don't think he looks like Yen, then you need your eyes checked. It has nothing to do with asian. It has to do with how closely they resemble the character in question.


Doom knows Brandon/8dag better than most here. We spent a lot of time arguing/debating over his choices.

Doom has spoke!
