MARVEL STUDIOS PRESENTS: FANTASTIC FOUR

Miles Teller? Michael B Jordan? No thanks. Tired of the FF being crapped on? Hit the jump to see an alternative take on the cast, Marvel Studios style...

By NetmanTripleSec - 3/8/2014


It's no secret the Josh Trank Fantastic Four cast is pretty much universally hated by everyone except industry suck ups. We're all hoping that MARVEL STUDIOS gets the rights back to its first family so justice can one day hopefully be done to The World's Greatest Comic Magazine.

But in the mean time, in an alternate reality, here is my cast for a new Fantastic Four film, please chime in with your thoughts below about who you'd cast and if you like it.




Billy Crudup as Reed Richards/Mister Fantastic

Billy Crudup can play older and smart, somewhat quiet and a natural leader. Has a gentle/meek yet strong quality about him.





Charlize Theron as Sue Storm/Richards/Invisible Woman

Charlize Theron can play smart and strong, lead character if necessary, has a mature gravitas about her.





Ryan Kwanten as Johnny Storm/The Human Torch

Ryan Kwanten can play brash, young, and cocky character with sense of humor, ladies man type, but also likeable, has a youthfulness about him.





Mark Wahlberg as Ben Grimm/The Thing

I'll be damned if Mark Wahlberg hasn't been playing the part of Ben Grimm all his life: he's a former gang member from the streets who's become world famous, he's made a career out of playing "tough guy with a heart of gold" types, plus he is handsome and physically attractive which of course adds to the tragedy of Ben Grimm/The Thing, and you know he could do the accent/voice.






Mads Mikkelsen as Victor Von Doom/Doctor Doom



Or Jason Isaacs (my first choice for Sinestro if Mark Strong never plays him again) as Victor Von Doom/Doctor Doom



Or Stephen Moyer as Victor Von Doom/Doctor Doom






ANY of the guys I listed as Dr Doom -

They all have a "sinister"ness about them, and that "you're not from around here, are ya, boy?" look about them that the ruler of Latveria should have. Also very commanding, charismatic, sexy, leading man qualities, Mads Mikkelsen, Jason Isaacs, and Stephen Moyer ALL steal the scenes in whatever project they're in.



Your turn, guys. I know MARVEL STUDIOS could make it happen and make it epic...and yes, I know we're only getting more than two Marvel character based movies this year because studios other than Marvel have rights to their characters, but I would rather have two quality Marvel films a year than a bunch of crappy ones, I'm patient, I'd rather wait a while to get a good movie than accept a bunch of crap because it's immediate.

Oh, and I'd have Michael Giacchino (Super 8) do the soundtrack (and I loved John Ottman's scores for the first two films, one of the highlights of the films for me, the awesome opening title sequence to the first film should have been left in the theatrical cut instead of being cut out (available in the extended edition for those curious)).

What do you think, guys? Who would you cast?

Billy Crudup was always the perfect choice for Reed Richards...I mean dammit his voice says it all!
MrSotoMan - 3/8/2014, 7:11 PM
What's funny is that one of these actors, DID turn down the role for the 2005 Fantastic Four movie.

Nah seems very Random.

Better than what's going on at Fox.
Interestein - 3/8/2014, 8:23 PM
Unoriginal, but I like Crudup as Richards

"pretty much universally hated by everyone except industry suck ups." LMAO TheWrap's industry suck-up Jeff Sneider gave us that abomination! common sense says he made it all up, and it was never confirmed by the studio, so... there's hope. this cast epitomizes unoriginal fancasting, BUT at least it got some things right like hair & eye color. I give it 5-stars and I give the TheWraps reported crast 0-stars.

I like the fantastic four cast Fox has. I never was the biggest fan of FF anyway. So, honestly, I am fine with it. I don't care about race changes, and I don't care about the age changes, since they did so in Ultimate Fantastic Four. But good work, I guess.
BatManHeisenberg - 3/8/2014, 9:24 PM
Yeah, I am more of a DC fan myself. And who's to say Johnny and Sue WON'T be brother and sister? Adopted or blood, it is very possible. I am pretty positive they would just have a black mom and a white dad or visa versa.

Reed Richards... Matthew Goode

Sue Storm... Yvonne Stravinsky

Johnny Storm... Mike Vogel (but I do like the idea of Kwanten)

Ben Grimm... Michael Cudlitz

Victor Von Doom... Stephen Moyer has my vote. But now that you mention it, Mikkelson would be awesome! Much better as Doom than Strange. Isaacs is my pick for Ras al Ghul, but he'd be a good Victor as well.

I REALLY want Ryan Kwanten in a CBM. I hate it when people call him an uninspired choice.
Batmaniac - 3/8/2014, 11:55 PM
I like Fox's cast and the Ultimate Fanttastic Four. However, even if Marvel was making a movie about the 616 Fantastic Four, this fan casting screams of unoriginality.
Batmaniac - 3/9/2014, 12:11 AM
I'm sorry, but the only thing this fan cast has going for it is Charlize Theron. I actually prefer Fox's cast to this fan cast.
Batmaniac - 3/9/2014, 12:15 AM
They're actors. It's their job to become other characters, not be themselves.
Batmaniac - 3/9/2014, 12:25 AM
I'm a fan of the Ultimate Fantastic Four, and as it stands, Trank's cast is great for that version of the Fantastic Four. However, since you have the audacity to say I'm not a fan because I don't agree with your opinion, I have no sympathy for he fact you're not getting the Fantastic Four movie you want.
Shroombeast - 3/9/2014, 12:26 AM
Now that's a damn good fan-cast! A damned shame that this isn't being made by Marvel Studios right now with that cast, instead of the upcoming Fox abomination.
Batmaniac - 3/9/2014, 12:34 AM
Miles Teller looks just like Ultimate Reed Richards. I guess if you had read the Ultimate Fantastsic Four comics, you'd be aware of this.

A couple down the road from me have one black kid, one white kid, parents are one black one white. Colour doesn't define Torch, we live in 2014 so get over yourselves...it happens. Aside from that I quite like your fan-cast, I just don't have a problem with Fox's cast...not that it matters, Fox consistently make awful comic book movies.

All I care about is talent and the FF cast is pretty good in that category. It's the script that is gonna matter at the end of it all. Nice casting choices BTW.
TheRealistStarLord - 3/9/2014, 3:15 AM
I did like Charlize Theron as Sue Storm cuz she is old. I despise Ryan Kwanten as Johnny Storm, cuz he is freaking annoying. Billy Crudrup is merely perfect as Reed Richards, so I am alright with him.

TheRealistStarLord - 3/9/2014, 3:16 AM
I sense Tucks is jealous of this article.
sameoldthing - 3/9/2014, 3:44 AM
Not into the Fox cast at all,these picks are better but really only like Ryan & Mads in those roles.
Nubase - 3/9/2014, 4:18 AM
its good to dream but its will remain a dream, marvel should have never allowed the rights to go in the first place, its funny 2 of your biggest stars spiderman and FF are not at Marvel, just think of the MCU marvel could of have but like l said its a dream.
Darktower - 3/9/2014, 4:27 AM
Mad Mikkelsen as Von Doom would be awesome !!! great cast ! much better than wat fox cased .
Geotheleo - 3/9/2014, 4:42 AM

Those. Site rocks... I spend a lot of time here
. Yall almost family even though I do more reading than posting
thor2273 - 3/9/2014, 5:11 AM
Mads Mikkelsen kicks ass!
MexicanSuperman - 3/9/2014, 5:56 AM
@NetmanTripleSec, "You can have one black parent and one white parent but no way in hell do you get a woman who looks bitch white with blonde hair and blue eyes and a guy who looks black black from the same parents, they'll always look more ambiguous and rightfully so....if they're going to do that they should at least not insult the audience's intelligence and cast people that look like they could be even somewhat the least bit related (same or similar looking race for starters...duuuh...).."

Bro you are an idiot. Do you live in a redneck bubble where interracial couples don't exist? You can't comperhend that Johnny and Sue can still be blood related by the same father. They can have different mothers.

this just makes me sad. Marvel would have made this movie so good, instead it's going to be complete shit and end up being rebooted in a few years.
