well, it looks like they are really gonna do this. i'm gonna have to admit it's happening at least. reality is bigger than i am, no use in fighting it anymore...

I was thinking just yesterday that the most generous way of looking at this is since we got Trank, maybe something like a South American 3 piece folk band doing a bunch of covers of Mariah Carey songs. Regardless of whether they know or care about the context of Mariah Carey, they would cook it down to the basic songs and do versions like that. And maybe Trank can be like a Martian and come down to Earth, look at the FF and do his cover of Mariah Carey over it.

And that could actually be a great movie and really interesting, and that's how i'm gonna look at it i guess until something pops up that really rubs me the wrong way about it. Kate Mara seems like a really funny person, and i love MBJ, so this just isn't FF, it's something else. it's a movie. called something. and with characters who have certain names, but God bless it, i guess.

Tim Nelson and the guy they got for Doom are interesting actors too.

i forget tho, out of those four people in the pictures, which one is Thing? hmmm is it the happy one or the sad one?

Let me know if that's too harsh, Nail

u know on the face of it, all four of these people are really unlikable versions of their Fantastic Four counterparts.

They took four people and made them more gross and more like people at your work.

It feels like that's the premise of the movie, what if Fantastic Four was actually all people i really hate at my work? What would it be like then?

it's hard enough to find anything to truly like about Reed in the comic books, and now look what they did? Miles Teller.
0megaDaGod - 6/22/2014, 5:14 AM
I gotta give props tho

They at least got the location right
dethpillow - 6/22/2014, 5:17 AM
it's almost like casting Richard Simmons as Hitler.

might as well right? we're just make him as unlikable as possible.

if Richard Simmons isn't available, then we really hope that Carlos Mencia is free. he'd make a great Hitler.

@0mega - true 0mega, there is always a silver lining.

seeing as how the last two months of this shoot, we've had the cameras showing up in Atlanta while actually the actors were in Miami.

so i think they've agreed on some kind of middle ground that works for both of them. god bless their little souls.

@dethpillow, you're one weird person.
McNyagano - 6/22/2014, 5:26 AM
Whatever.
dethpillow - 6/22/2014, 5:28 AM
i think Teller is still busy shooting a movie that he's in tho.

cuz, apparently, he's an actor it turns out. like an actor in movies.
so he's gonna meet them there later and see if anything fun is going on in Louisiana. cuz Fox is paying him to hang with Josh Trank in Louisiana.

they just wanna make sure that Trank's not lonely doing this whole Fantastic Four thing out there. he's kinda fragile, after all.
TheMexicanSuperman - 6/22/2014, 5:29 AM
I think the Fantastic Four reboot will great. It has great up and coming director and a great cast.
dethpillow - 6/22/2014, 5:31 AM
@MexicanSuperman - i'm actually excited about this movie. i really like Trank's Chronicle, and he seems like a cool guy. and a totally great film maker and even makes sense for this property.
it's just a weird combination of stuff. this movie could be really interesting tho, in a good way i mean too. this could be a good movie is what i mean. something different for once, u know?
dethpillow - 6/22/2014, 5:32 AM
that's what i'm always complaining about and then look... it falls in my lap and what do i do?

I'm really looking forward to this movie.
Maven - 6/22/2014, 5:45 AM
Just hoping Reed doesn't create a serum for Ben to "control" his appearance or some shit like that.
nailbiter111 - 6/22/2014, 5:48 AM
Brainiac13 - she's wearing a wig for the photoshoot. it's not her Wonder Woman hair. You can read it in the article.

@Nails

Brainiac13 - 6/22/2014, 6:08 AM
Cool tool.
MyloSteamwitz - 6/22/2014, 6:22 AM
Oh right... this is actually a thing.

marvel72 - 6/22/2014, 6:25 AM
& that's your fantastic four?i really can't wait for this movie.....

honestly i'm telling the truth......

sorry i can't keep this charade going,i have my fingers crossed that this movie fails critically & financially at the box office.
BatzFTWfan - 6/22/2014, 6:35 AM
I only watch film because of Mara as Sue and seeing the real Doctor Doom. If it fails to do Doom, the rights should get back to Marvel Studios.

But even if the movie gets success, i want see my Galactus and Silver Surfer in MCU, and i want to see Doom vs Iron Man.
HypeExMachina - 6/22/2014, 6:48 AM
I'm begging you to stop showing those actors faces next to each other
HypeExMachina - 6/22/2014, 6:49 AM

Interesting.
HypeExMachina - 6/22/2014, 7:13 AM
they took Sue the tall blonde with blue eyes and a heart-shaped face and replaced her with a square-jawed brown-eyed brunette 10 inches shorter than that milquetoast Jonas Brother Miles Teller, and she has a face like a gibbon.

#wouldnotbang

look at her neck tendons, you can tell she's older than the director.
