Denn1s - 9/14/2009, 4:23 PM

IronMarvel - 9/14/2009, 4:54 PM
john hamm for reed all the way no doubt.
IronMarvel - 9/14/2009, 4:54 PM
I like charlize for sue too

Nice, except for Everett as Doom. I'm not saying he couldn't potentially pull it off but the dude has never made a single movie that wasn't a rom-com(as far as i know) so I see him as a bit of a strange choice.

Hey! My comment was Erased!
flames809 - 9/14/2009, 6:06 PM
i agree with Denn1s just get a good director,writers and a great villain that's all they need keep the f4 cast
JoshWilding - 9/14/2009, 6:42 PM
Rorschach01: I picked Everett because I saw him in a BBC TV movie where he played Sherlock Holmes! (I think it was called 'The Silk Stocking'!?) He was actually really good in that (he played the drug addicted Holmes) and there were parts where he portrayed a really menacing side to the character which made me instantly think he would make a great villain in something! He also has the right look for how I would imagine Doom IMO! :) Im glad you like the rest though, thanks!
InSpace - 9/14/2009, 7:17 PM
Mark Strong for DOOM!!!!
THEHAWK - 9/14/2009, 7:18 PM
I could actually see Everret as Doom. He would be a second choice, after Jason Isaacs. Now if Isaacs got Mister Sinister, then I would go with Everet for Doom.

I'm glad you kept Evans, he was a great choice, along with michael chiklis.

the only two that needed replacing were Jessica Alba as Sue and the guy that played Doom.

I really can't see Millar as Galactus. his voice isn't commanding enough, since he will be CGI he will need a strong commanding voice.
JoshWilding - 9/14/2009, 8:28 PM
THEHAWK: thats a good point about Miller! Maybe they could do the same as they did with Silver Surfer - use Miller's likeness but a different voice actor (Brian Cox maybe!?)

Finally, this is on fan fic
Joker1Zero - 9/14/2009, 8:35 PM
I can dig it.
Joker1Zero - 9/14/2009, 9:47 PM
That's a terrible pic of Everett by the way. He looks stoned off his ass.
DDD - 9/14/2009, 11:49 PM
Finally some older well-rounded actors for Reed and Sue! I agree with having Chris come back! He doesn't need rebooting as Johnny!

I thought the same thing about JDM, the perfect voice for Ben Grim and the perfect actor to play him when he is in human form! A mix of Him and CGI for Thing.
thenumber12 - 9/15/2009, 12:14 AM
Can't have the same dude as tourch
ThunderCougarFalconBird - 9/15/2009, 7:53 AM
joshw24 - Rupert Everett in a show called 'The Silk Stocking'!? Now there's a cue to change channel! Brings a host of unpleasant images to mind, most of which need erasing via blowtorch lol.

Good casting.
LEEE777 - 9/15/2009, 8:52 AM
Dunno about this one @ JOSH!

And IF your doing a whole recast, you have to do TORCH too!
(Which is WHY i hate a reboot, no one is TORCH but EVANS, anyone else doing it, it would SUCK).

I still like the FF we got!!! Don't want a stupid DARKER reboot or remake going over old ground, new villains a must!!! ; )

FF: ATTACK ON MANHATTAN (with MOLE MAN).

Im not saying i don't like the cast, just wanna keep the old ones lol, they had the magic!

Though this rebooting is better once MARVEL STUDIOS gets the franchise back!
Shaman - 9/15/2009, 8:53 AM
Actually, these choices are decent :) Laurie might be slightly older than the role. I mean, Mr. Fantastic is old but i don't know if he's that old LOL John Hamm seems like the best choice.

Charlize would be a decent Sue as well. And well Evans as torch is a keeper ;) Great call on JDM/Thing josh! Might not even need CGI, just the suit :)

I'd like a rougher Doom though. I think Dolph Lungdred would be perfect. Mix Drago from Rocky4 with his Universal Soldier evil performance and voila! Doom!!!

And if Quinto can put on 150lbs of pure muscle, he can do Namor. If not, he should stick to Spock.
LEEE777 - 9/15/2009, 8:55 AM
Yes he should just STICK to SPOCK!

Plus FOX doesn't have NAMOR so NAMOR cant be in FF.

EUGENE LEVY is the perfect MOLE MAN, ol' DANNY there would be too much like PENGUIN for my tastes lol.

ThoroughbredSteele0 - 9/15/2009, 9:41 AM
great choices dude, especially devito for moleman. and hiegel for lyja is an excellent idea
ThoroughbredSteele0 - 9/15/2009, 9:41 AM

JoshWilding - 9/15/2009, 11:39 AM
DDD: exactly, thats also what i would like to see!

teabag: thanks man, but i have to disagree with you about a CGI Thing...I just think that a mix of a cotume made better by CGI would be better than what was in the last two films which IMO looked plastic and fake! :)

Howlett04: I think thats what it was called but it was a Sherlock Holmes movie so despite the odd sounding title it was pretty good, lol!

LEE: If you liked any of the cast members from the first two FF films (apart from Evans) then you have obviously never read a single FF comic book!!! The guy who played Reed was crap at doing an American accent and generally wasnt right for the part (he came across more as a simpleton than a super genius) and Alba as Invisible Woman was so far off from a good cast its unbelievable!!! Not sure if i like you pick for Mole Man sorry...but the FF definitely needs some kind of reboot (skipping the origins as Marvel did with Hulk though)

Shaman: Cool man, Im glad you like it! Though laurie might be a little too old I think he's only about 50 so if they smartened him up a little he could look right for the role! And yeah, JDM is right for a lot of comic book roles IMO but i think he'd be especially good for both The Thing and Ben Grimm!

ThoroughbredSteele0: thanks, Lyja was one of the hardest to cast! :)
LEEE777 - 9/15/2009, 2:08 PM
JOSH @ They wont skip the reboot!!! Thats why their doing a REBOOT ffs!

No JOSH, ive never read a FF comic, sure ive got like over 300 FF comic books!

I like ALBA coz shes EYE CANDY, but i don't mind if she got replaced, but nobody from HANCOCK plz lol!

REED was a good part! Check out IAIN's HORNBLOWER, he's a friggin' fine actor, an his a fellow welshman like you!
; )

And WTF??? THE THING was perfect!!! ?

JDM , GEEZUZ you want that guy in 100 comic book roles then i take it lol??? ; D

I like GALACTUS (dont know why lol) but i do!

But SILVER SURFER and GALACTUS should stay away from FF now and DO the SILVER SURFER movie!!
LEEE777 - 9/15/2009, 2:10 PM
SUPERMARIO @ What was you comment??
JoshWilding - 9/15/2009, 4:31 PM
LEE: I saw Hornblower years ago when it was first on TV here in the UK and I agree it was good - it doesnt excuse the fact that his American accent is appalling and he made a dreadful Reed!!! And yeah, JDM would make a great Hercules, Ares or Thing! :D
LEEE777 - 9/15/2009, 4:38 PM
JDM for all THREE!!! ; D

Ive heard a lot more worst american accents than his lol, you do know the american accent varies fronm state to state right??

By the way cool AVATAR but why dont you use a real picture of CAPT BRITAIN an not the lame Ultimate one??

Come onnnn CAP BRIT VS CAP AMERICA, who would win?? ; D
JoshWilding - 9/15/2009, 5:21 PM
LEE: I know about the different accents in different states but trust me - i could hear his Welsh accent coming through every other word, lol!

You've never read a comic book with Ultimate Captain Britain in, lol so you know nothing about him - he is in face awesome! :)

Mmmm...im not sure who would win!!! CapB's powers are pretty unlimited as long as he's confident (his powers are magic basedso he might beat CapA on strength but I think that CapA might just fight a way to beat him..! Its a close call thats for sure!
supermarioworldE - 9/15/2009, 9:19 PM
@lee, that this article should have been on fanfic, when it was on the main page.
JoshWilding - 9/16/2009, 2:33 AM
supermarioworldE you know, id really rather you just comment on the articles content rather than going on about where it should be! :)
supermarioworldE - 9/16/2009, 11:25 AM
Fair enough.
Shaman - 9/16/2009, 11:30 AM
The two caps goin' at it would be cool to see ;)

And yes, that "guy" which i don't want to know the name, wasn't that good as Mr Fantastic. BUT, it could have been because of a FOX-up in the writing and directing. He could have the talent to pull off a totally different Reed. But the last two films had Reed as Mr. Bean which isn't so fantastic. Hugh is an outstanding actor and after his performance in Stuart Little, i know he'd be a damn fine Reed. Just... older LOL :P
LEEE777 - 9/17/2009, 5:47 PM
Cool @ JOSH! ; )

CAP VS CAP, now that would be EPIC!
AshleyWilliams - 10/19/2009, 4:56 PM
Awesome cast!
Though Billy Crudup HAS to be Reed and Ralph Fiennes HAS to be Doom.
FantasticaFourFan - 3/30/2010, 8:11 AM
Well... Chris evans ALREADY declined coming back for the FF reboot. He stated that the reboot needs an all new cast, and he looks forward to seeing it. So no, he's not Human Torch. CGI for The Thing?.....Maybe a mix of the two. Like, what they did for Wolfman. And the actor they chose for Thing?... The Comedian as a big rock man. Maybe. xD I'm not sure about Hugh being Mr. F ........ but Zachary Quinto better bulk up if he's being Namor. Best of luck to Rupert and Danny has the FF's awesome Villains. Not really sure about the others, but I look forward to their performance!
FantasticaFourFan - 3/30/2010, 8:14 AM
Oh and after reading several of your comments, Jon Hamm WOULD be the best choice for Reed.
FantasticaFourFan - 3/31/2010, 11:24 AM
OH WAIT! This isn't the real cast. xD
Nimibro - 4/10/2010, 11:58 AM
maybe timothy spall as moleman?
Luigi - 5/31/2010, 6:58 PM
Haha poor Danny DeVito, everybody casts him as Mole Man lol.
