INCREDIBLE HULK Actor Tim Blake Nelson In Final Talks For THE FANTASTIC FOUR

INCREDIBLE HULK Actor Tim Blake Nelson In Final Talks For THE FANTASTIC FOUR

The actor is taking another stab at playing a Marvel villain/scientist in a Marvel reboot with 20th Century Fox's The Fantastic Four. Find out who The Incredible Hulk actor is playing after the jump!

According to The Hollywood Reporter, The Fantastic Four has added actor Tim Blake Nelson to its steadily-growing ensemble cast for the role of "an eccentric and socially awkward scientist," Harvey Elder, who's better known as the supervillain Mole Man. However, like Nelson's minor role as Samuel Sterns a.k.a The Leader in Marvel Studios' forgotten Incredible Hulk movie, Harvey Elder will not apparently become Mole Man in Fox's 2015 Fantastic Four reboot. Instead, "Elder’s appearance sets up the character to be the villain in future installments of the franchise," reports the THR's source. Anyhow, with The Fantastic Four  gearing up for filming very very soon, Tim Blake Nelson joins Miles Teller, Kate Mara, Michael B. Jordan, Jamie Bell, and Toby Kebbel. And directed by Josh Trank from a script by Simon Kinberg, Marvel's First Family returns June 19, 2015.

Highflyer - 4/30/2014, 3:21 PM

i have this feeling the project will be scraped...idk why..but i do
Vegeta - 4/30/2014, 3:25 PM
Doom & Mole Man? Nice. Seems like they're taking a lot from the Ultimate Fantastic Four origin so far. I'm looking forward to seeing how this turn out.
Blanka1212 - 4/30/2014, 3:26 PM
So...the guy who was set up to play The Leader will be playing the charactr set up to be Mole Man.
TheManFromMars - 4/30/2014, 3:27 PM
I like him. Haven't seen him in anything lately.
Pasto - 4/30/2014, 3:28 PM
Martin, LMFAO!
TheManFromMars - 4/30/2014, 3:29 PM
I still hope they bring him back as The Leader.
Vegeta - 4/30/2014, 3:30 PM
Oh, he won't be Mole Man in this movie? Okay then.
CinemaHero - 4/30/2014, 3:30 PM
Hmm... Can't seem to post a picture to visualize my opinion on this...

Whatever. I would have rather the whole Leader thing be addressed, but hey, Mole Man. That's cool too I guess.

Still hate everything else I've heard about this troubled pile of crap. :/
ALegendaryPanda - 4/30/2014, 3:32 PM
Mole Man?????!
ALegendaryPanda - 4/30/2014, 3:32 PM
Who the [frick] is Mole Man?!
TheManFromMars - 4/30/2014, 3:34 PM

The very first villain the FF ever faced.
TheManFromMars - 4/30/2014, 3:34 PM

Mr. Blue is Hydra!
MrCBM56 - 4/30/2014, 3:34 PM
Great casting if true. I like it.
McNyagano - 4/30/2014, 3:36 PM
Who the [frick] is Mole Man?!

Isn't that the question of the day?;)
MrCBM56 - 4/30/2014, 3:37 PM
Lmao MrMartinMarvel. The more the MCU progress the more TIH just feels so out of place.
WeddingTux - 4/30/2014, 3:38 PM
no comment. don't ask me anything.
Highflyer - 4/30/2014, 3:38 PM
So Marvel Studios are going to introduce Leader and never use him? I know they can recast but I don't hear a an Incredible Hulk sequel coming any time soom. Smh... this some bullsh*t.
SimyJo - 4/30/2014, 3:39 PM
Oh yeah! - MOLE-MAN!

WeddingTux - 4/30/2014, 3:40 PM
but for arguments sake, let's just say this one is not true in any capacity whatsoever. thanks for your support guys, I'm gonna sit this one out ,':-)
MrCBM56 - 4/30/2014, 3:40 PM
Oh c'mon @Tucks! Don't be like that.
TheManFromMars - 4/30/2014, 3:41 PM
kinghulk - 4/30/2014, 3:43 PM
as long as he eventually reprises his role as the leader i dont care.
Highflyer - 4/30/2014, 3:43 PM
@BlackJack. Agreed 100% Not only does TIH deserve a sequel, it NEEDS a sequel!
JamesMan - 4/30/2014, 3:44 PM

Welcome to my world. As Hulk being my favorite Marvel character I am so disappointed we will probably not see another Hulk film in the next 5 years. That's over a 10 damn year wait between films! I want another solo Hulk movie, I hate that he's going to be a character only in the Avengers films. Also, I love The Incredible Hulk, but I love Hulk (2003) as well.
WeddingTux - 4/30/2014, 3:47 PM
and when I say "any capacity" I mean the actor, the character of Prof. Harvey Elder definitely has a role to play as a toned-down version of the FF's primordial nemesis. yes he is "an eccentric and socially awkward scientist" but he's only there to discover the villain (whose name starts with an 'A') and has special connections to places in the source material (Monster Island, Valley of Diamonds, and the NYC underground.) I really dread seeing these rumors knowing how untrue they are. it's an unpleasant feeling :(
Highflyer - 4/30/2014, 3:48 PM
Out of all the characters in phase 1 of Marvel studios that needed a sequel was TIH. Who the frick thought Iron Man needed a sequel when it concerned storyline? One thing that bothered me in Avengers was how Bruce acted and talked as if he had a long history with shield but we never got to see that history. I get angry when I think about it tbh. And you wouldn't like me when I'm angry ;)
MightOfMagneto - 4/30/2014, 3:49 PM
The Incredible Hulk is my top favorite when it comes to MCU.
Well, I only like 3 movies out of 9 from the MCU.

So here are my top 3 MCU films:

1. The Incredible Hulk
2. Captain America 2: TWS
3. Ironman 1

These 3 movies are the only movies that I felt sincere.

MrCBM56 - 4/30/2014, 3:49 PM
More Tucks, more!
WeddingTux - 4/30/2014, 3:50 PM
if not for the terrible casting ideas I'd say this shines a better light on what the project's about. maybe ask Jon Schnepp what he thinks about this?
MexicanSexyman - 4/30/2014, 3:51 PM
@MrBlackJack, Mr. Blue was actually Gusto when he was 80s years old.

I still hope he gets be in a TIH sequel.
maninfinesuit - 4/30/2014, 3:51 PM
Was really hoping Mole Man would be the villain for the reboot. I'm down for seeing him down the line, I suppose.
Starfox - 4/30/2014, 3:51 PM

Lmao... Jon Scnepp from AMC? I needed that laugh.
