NEW FANTASTIC FOUR REBOOT FANCAST FROM DDD!!!
Casting A FANTASTIC FOUR First-Film Of Epic Proportions!
BIG, BIG, BIG! BIG As THING'S CLOBBERIN' PUNCHES!
BIG As GALACTUS' BEHIND!!! BIG As NAMOR'S POINTY
EARS.....Well, Maybe Not That Big!
Here's my new FANTASTIC FOUR FIRST-FILM REBOOT FANCAST!
I think the first F4 FILM of a reboot should be HUGE! A real EPIC!
Not just the telling of how they came to be.
(By the way, PLEASE MARVEL/DISNEY.....GET THIS PROPERTY BACK!!!)
I would have them all becoming who they transformed into at the beginning
of the movie (REED, SUE, JOHNNY, BEN & VICTOR) but I would have DOOM and
the rest stop their bickering and group together to battle a terrifying
danger.....GALACTUS! Of course DOOM has ulterior motives like in FOX'S
“RISE OF THE SILVER SURFER”, after all HE'S DOOM!
The telling of how they become the FF should not be a whole movie. It
should be just the first ten or fifteen minutes of the movie, then SILVER
SURFER & GALACTUS arrive and that's the “TURN”, what propels the rest of
the film forwards.
THE SILVER SURFER will show up as the HERALD OF GALACTUS, telling
the people of the earth, “GALACTUS will DEVOUR YOU”! This time I would
show GALACTUS in all his massive splendor! There is a way to do it without
making it silly, I know there is! If HOLLYWOOD can make a giant GORILLA
believabl(KING KONG), then they can make a 30 foot tall creepy humanoid
They need to make him look “DEFINITIVELY ALIEN”. Come on, an enormous
humanoid alien would look a lot less silly than a gargantuan “GALACTIC
CLOUD”! (But they did actually have GALACTUS a little visible back there in the mist!)
GALACTUS: 28'9” TALL- OFFICIALLY (variable, he can grow larger than even a
NAMOR will come up from the sea because of all the damage GALACTUS is
doing to the ocean. Thus he will enter the proceedings. He will only be
for himself at the start. There would also be a hint of the romance
between HE & SUE.
I would put a bit more emphasis on THING/BEN GRIMM'S romance with ALICIA
MASTERS, this will bring PHILLIP MASTERS (PUPPET MASTER) briefly into
the story, as well. He would only be a supporting character for now.
The FF need to feel like a close family but not be so dang schmaltzy! They
need to feel like a REAL family, more like THE INCREDIBLES.
FRANKIE RAYE would make an appearance too, like in RISE OF THE SILVER
SURFER but I would surely not have her as a soldier. She should be the love
interest for JOHNNY. Having her as the young assistant of the government
liaison to the FF would work just fine.
This needs to be an EPIC, a long movie, at least 2 ½ hours, I WOULD say.
So weaving GALACTUS, outer space, the FF getting their abilities, NAMOR out
of the DEPTHS of the SEA, SUE & REED'S romance, BEN & ALICIA'S romance
JOHNNY & FRANKIE'S attraction to one another and NAMOR & SUE'S
underlying awkward attraction you would have a HUGE, EXPANSIVE &
EPICALLY ENTERTAINING FANTASTIC FOUR FIRST-FILM!
(((By the way, I use ALLITERATIONS as a running tribute to “THE MAN
HIMSELF”, MR. STAN LEE (I'm not that crappy of a writer!).
“EXCELSIOR, TRUE BELIEVERS! MAKE MINE MARVEL!)))
(((And I used KIRBY illustrations for my headers because the LATE GREAT
JACK KIRBY helped create THE FANTASTIC FOUR, as a tribute to him.
MY NEW FANTASTIC FOUR FIRST-FILM REBOOT FANCAST:
He made the STAR TREK crew feel like a family and was extremely true to
the source material yet made it feel amazingly fresh! Plus he made it
extremely adventuresome, a ton of fun! THAT'S WHAT THE FANTASTIC FOUR
NEEDS! (I know I use JJ a lot but he truly fits HERE!)
PATRICK simply fits! 'NUFF SAID! (He's slim, he's used to playing doctors
and scientists and he looks exactly like this REED RICHARDS illustration
PATRICK WILSON, 6'1”: HARD CANDY, LAKEVIEW TERRACE, WATCHMEN,
THE A-TEAM (FILM)
MR. FANTASTIC (REED RICHARDS):
I feel MALIN would work well with PATRICK, they had great chemistry in
WATCHMEN, plus MALIN has the gravitas to handle the mix of good wife and
sexy superheroine very well! She surely fits appearance-wise!
MALIN AKERMAN: WATCHMEN, THE PROPOSAL, ELEKTRA LUXX
INVISIBLE WOMAN (SUE STORM):
INVISIBLE WOMAN (SUE STORM):
CHASE CRAWFORD has the light-haired “pretty-boy” looks and adventurous
qualities of JOHNNY STORM. JOHNNY'S not an opportunistic, obnoxious dick
like he is in the awful FOX movies. The FOX FF had THING and JOHNNY as
mere caricatures of the characters.
CHASE CRAWFORD: THE COVENANT, LOADED (FILM), GOSSIP GIRL (TV)
HUMAN TORCH (JOHNNY STORM):
DOMENICK LOMBARDOZZI was fantastic on the now canceled BREAKOUT
KINGS on A&E. He has the stocky-look and the NEW YORK accent down pat!
That's because he was born in THE BRONX, NEW YORK, the same place BEN
GRIMM is from. Plus he's about the same age as PATRICK, he and PATRICK are
relatively young. I think he is absolutely the best man for the job!
DOMENICK LOMBARDOZZI: MIAMI VICE, PUBLIC ENEMIES (FILM), THE
WIRE, 24, BREAKOUT KINGS (TV)
THING (BEN GRIMM):
Well, now that MADS MIKKELSEN is doing THOR 2 I had to find someone else
for VICTOR VON DOOM, Damn! The first time I saw NICOLAJ COSTER-WALDAU
was in a TV series entitled, NEW AMSTERDAM, on FOX. It was about a DUTCH
soldier in 1600's America who was cursed with immortality by a Native
American witch-woman, cursed with immortality kind of like THE HIGHLANDER,
now still alive in the present world he works as a NEW YORK CITY Homicide
Detective and uses his near 400 years of deductive experience to solve
murders. I thought it was way cool but apparently I was the ONLY ONE
watching because it only lasted 8 episodes.
(Of course FOX TV always cancels sci-fi shows!)
Anyway, NICIOLAJ was extremely charismatic in it and is now the same in
GAME OF THRONES. He is a DANISH actor and would fit the European DOCTOR
DOOM precisely. (They should not stray so damn far from DOCTOR DOOM'S
character! The FOX DOOM was absolutely CRAPPY!)
NIKOLAJ COSTER-WALDAU, 6'2 ½”: BLACK HAWK DOWN, FIREWALL
(FILM), GAME OF THRONES (TV)
DOCTOR DOOM (VICTOR VON DOOM):
I've cast ELIZABETH BANKS for SUE STORM before but I got to thinking, with
her beautiful sweet smile she just exudes ALICIA MASTERS. She's a great
actress who could pull-off the role of a blind mutant sculpture who can
automatically sculpt anyone's face, the daughter of the evil PUPPET MASTER.
ELIZABETH BANKS is the spitting image of the strawberry blond ALICIA.
ELIZABETH BANKS: (FILM)
FRANKIE RAYE will be the love interest for JOHNNY. She's a firestarter too.
RACHELLE is a dead-ringer for FRANKIE RAYE. (Coincidentally she played
a doctor in PATRICK WILSON'S TV series, “A GIFTED MAN”, so she has
actually acted with PATRICK, something I wasn't aware before I cast her
here. (I only learned this just recently.)
RACHELLE LEFEVRE: BARNEY'S VERSION, THE CALLER (FILM),
A GIFTED MAN (TV)
FRANKIE RAYE (NOVA):
Just shave DOUG HUTCHISON'S head bald he can handle the mad-man
qualities of ALICIA MASTERS insanely evil father.
(FROM MARVEL.COM: PUPPET MASTER, REAL NAME: PHILLIP
MASTERS, HEIGHT: 5'6”, HAIR: BALD)
DOUG HUTCHISON, 5'6”: THE GREEN MILE, PUNISHER: WARZONE (FILM),
THE X-FILES (TV)
PUPPET MASTER (PHILLIP MASTERS):
I chose this guy for NAMOR a long, LONG time before he wore the pointy
ears as NERO, THE “NASTY” ROMULAN. So forget the negative comments about
unoriginality, “I”...was the “ORIGINATOR” of ERIC BANA with POINTY EARS!
(I probably wasn't actually the first to fancast BANA as NAMOR but you get
ERIC BANA, 6'3 ½”: TROY, MUNICH, STAR TREK (FILM)
NAMOR (NAMOR MCKENZIE):
Man, it is extremely tough finding a different voice actor for NORRIN RADD
than MR. FISHBURNE! But it wouldn't be right to use him again in a reboot.
But I would like to see a younger, more personable NORRIN RADD anyway. He
needs to be a real person, not so robotic and unemotional like he was in
FOX'S SILVER SURFER.
MICHAEL ROSENBAUM has the looks, the PERSONA and the voice to make a
fantastic NORRIN RADD, one who feels alive and lifelike, an actual PERSON!
He would have the star-power to star in his own HEROIC SILVER SURFER
movie, as well (A film which I really, REALLY want to see happen but not
with Frakking FOX!).
MICHAEL ROSENBAUM: JUSTICE LEAGUE (THE FLASH-VOICE),
SMALLVILLE, BREAKING IN (TV)
SILVER SURFER (NORRIN RADD):
MICHAEL ROSENBAUM (VOICE & BODY + CGI)
SILVER SURFER (NORRIN RADD):
(In This PLETHORA OF PICTURES You Can CERTAINLY SEE The
RESEMBLANCE! And Not Just Because He's BALD in these pics!)
SILVER SURFER (NORRIN RADD):
This one is a NO-BRAINER! lol
JAMES EARL JONES: STAR WARS, THE LION KING, CLEAR AND PRESENT
DANGER (FILM) (Only a drop in the bucket to THE WEALTH OF STUFF he's
CGI + JAMES EARL JONES (VOICE)
GALACTUS needs to look and seem VERY alien!
