Chris Evans Welcomes Fantastic Four Reboot

Chris Evans Welcomes <em>Fantastic Four</em> Reboot

Evans: "I welcome the new franchise; I hope it's fantastic. I like good movies. If it's a great movie, let's make it, let's get it out there. There aren't enough of them."

This from LatinoReview.com :) Enjoy:

By now you've heard that 20th Century Fox is going
forward with its reboot of the Fantastic Four film series.
But what we haven't heard much about (beyond the murmurs
that the new movie will have darker, more Dark-Knight-like tone)
is who it will star and what the actors who brought the
Fantastic Four to reel life in 2005 think about the change.

When I, along with some fellow journos, recently caught up
with Chris Evans, who played Johnny Storm (aka the Human Torch),
he had this to say regarding his involvement and thoughts on
the reboot.

"I don't think I'm going to be involved with it. I think
they're going to start from scratch. [...] If there's room to
reinvent a franchise in a different tone and they can make a
good film out of it then so be it. I have nothing negative to
say about it."

In fact, it seems Evans is actually enthused about the idea.

"I welcome the new franchise; I hope it's fantastic. I like
good movies. I'm sure Michael Keaton felt the same way. I'm sure
Christopher Reeves felt the same way. If it's a great movie,
let's make it, let's get it out there. There aren't enough of
them."

Cap10: I know alot of people hated them, but i actually enjoyed
the two films. Lets hope the reboot brings back the fans that
were lost with the first two and more importantly, lets hope that
it kicks ass :)

CaptainAmerica - 9/13/2009, 11:18 PM
Thanks, i finally had the chance to do one :) I was 3 seconds away from finishing my Lobo one LOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOL Yours was better though ;)
LEEE777 - 9/13/2009, 11:40 PM
Oh lol, cheers @ CAP!

Whew glad i started it alot sooner, getting all dem pics up and everything took awhile lol!

I reckon by the way EVANS is being nice, just incase FOX thinks hmm maybe we could still have him for HUMAN TORCH!!! Still id rather they do a FANTASTIC FOUR 3: ATTACK of the MOLE MAN in MANHATTAN, CLASSIC!!! ; )

Hey im your first lol! ; D
CaptainAmerica - 9/13/2009, 11:43 PM
YAYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY!!!!!!!!!! I feel so much closer to you now lol awkward. Yea, i dont want a reboot :( i thought the cast was good. The next one could have had Mole Man or Black Panther
LEEE777 - 9/13/2009, 11:43 PM
No one can replace him as TORCH, i reckon the new DARK cough cough, (FF is not supposed to be DARK), will be worst than FF 2! We need FF3! And no more FRIGGIN' DR DOOM we need NEW Villains!!!

LMAO " CAP!!! Yeah, luv to see BLACK PANTHER in there but still the BLACK PANTHER movie hopefully will be made!

Hey we look alike lol, brothers heh heh.
CaptainAmerica - 9/13/2009, 11:44 PM
Yea, too many films will try to go dark now because of the success of TDK, unfortunately not all films can be that way and alot will be ruined because of it.
LEEE777 - 9/13/2009, 11:47 PM
Your right @ CAP! Some Superhero movies shouldn't be DARK, but WOLVERINE should've been dark but it turned into a comedy lol!
supermarioworldE - 9/13/2009, 11:57 PM
Nice article Sam Worthington....I mean cap! I too liked the first two fantastic 4 movies, and I find this reboot crap ridiculous. Let's hope it doesn't turn into a punisher warzone (yet another reboot they got wrong).
LEEE777 - 9/14/2009, 12:03 AM
Supermario @ Your so right!!! ; )

I cant believe hoe the HOLLYWOOD [frick]ed up WAR ZONE?? That should've been one of the best comic book movies ever made an they [frick]ed it!

I say BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO to REBOOTS & REMAKES!

DD don't really need Rebooting either!!

Damn, heh heh.

They dare replace COLIN as BULLSEYE!

P.S. I put a thumbs up for the article, not the Reboot news lol.
DDD - 9/14/2009, 12:10 AM
The only guy I see needs to be replaced is the actor playing Reed Richards. He needs to be a little taller and older! But of course Thing needs to be bigger, maybe done instead with cgi and human mixed!
DDD - 9/14/2009, 12:12 AM
But FF never was extremely dark! Maybe some dark themes and realistic human reaction drama but not entirely dark! I mean Thing and Johnny joke all the time in FF comics. I thought Chris and Chicklis had that rapport down!
supermarioworldE - 9/14/2009, 12:15 AM
@Lee

Im still waiting on a daredevil sequel. I was fine with the first one. this reboot stuff is making my head spin.


Down with reboots, Up with sequels.
supermarioworldE - 9/14/2009, 12:18 AM
exactly, DDD. Chicklis and Evans go good together. Perhaps they should have their own sitcom! I can see it now, "My Monster and Me"
LEEE777 - 9/14/2009, 12:28 AM
Necro @ hell yeah!!! THE THING an TORCH made FF! Without the two actors its gonna suck donkey chuncks!! (Fury lol).

Super me too! An down with REBOOTS an REMAKES!!! ; )

Most don't get better again anyway, it gets boring going over the same old stuff with a different spin!

We need good solid sequels!! Fresh VILLAINS, fresh STORIES!!!

An congrats @ CAP @ Your first is in MAIN man!!
CaptainAmerica - 9/14/2009, 12:40 AM
Thanks Leee, probably wont be able to post one for another month lol :)
LiquidSnake - 9/14/2009, 1:39 AM
Are they rebooting it so they can still keep the rights to it?

Good thing they don't have rights to Namor and The Inhumans
LEEE777 - 9/14/2009, 1:45 AM
CAP @ ; D

TEABAG @ Have you noticed dude, most that don't like the FF movies like the last X-movie lol!

An your right, they are good, (well 2 could've been better, but great SURFER!). They kept the tone of the comic, going DARK is like going DARK with the SMURFS movie,stupid lol!!!

If it goes darker, it'll lose the FF magic and be a BORIGINS TURD!

Liquid @ Yeah!

Multi @ Lmao, i think its already been done lol.
JaySchluffy - 9/14/2009, 2:10 AM
Lol I love the thumbnail picture you have of Chris Evans on the main page. I'm more interested in a Silver Surfer Spin of (especially if its written still my JMS)I liked ROTSS mostly just for Silver Surfer..
LEEE777 - 9/14/2009, 2:14 AM
JAY @ Hell yeah, its time for the SILVER SURFER spin off!!! IF this reboot friggin' happens, we might not see it!!

I say NO to the reboot an bring on SS the movie, GALACTUS time!!!

NEWS REPORT just in!!!

FF REBOOT will include THE HOFF as THE BEYONDER!?!



Just say NO! ; D

SkunkApe1 - 9/14/2009, 3:18 AM
Wait a minute, didn't Chris Evans say (quite some time ago) that he wouldn't be involved in anything more with the FF movies ? Seem's like a complete turn around. He is a decent actor, but no mega-star that can refuse roles. Should follow Nic Cage and do anything.
GUNSMITH - 9/14/2009, 4:34 AM
I PUT IT TO YOU ALL, THE FANTASTIC FOUR EVERYONE WANTS TO SEE, WHAT WOULD NEED TO BE IN IT?-WHO WOULD PLAY WHAT PART? WHAT WOULD YOU CHANGE THAT YOUVE SEEN IN THE PAST FF'S?---ID LIKE TO SEE A MUCH LARGER THING-PRACTICAL SUIT BUT A CG SPLICED FACE-IDLIKE TO SEE COOLER COSTUMES-I WANNA SEE A GOOD COMPUTER FX STUDIO TACKLE THIS ONE...
ASSASSIN666 - 9/14/2009, 4:35 AM
Here we go again with yet another reboot of movies that are only a couple of years old. The only thing that needs to be dark about FF is Doctor Doom, and Galactus if he was used properly.
JoshWilding - 9/14/2009, 4:36 AM
I hated both FF films (though the second one was a little better...right up until cloud Galactus showed up!) but I was really hoping that out of all the cast that Chris Evans would return! Mainly because he was the only decent actor in both movies but also because he was a great Human Torch (even if the character was written nothing like he should have been)
GUNSMITH - 9/14/2009, 4:38 AM
FOR THE VILLAIN I WANNA SEE THEM FACE OF AGAINST THE MOLE MAN AND HIS ARMY OF FREAKISH MONSTERS WREAKING HAVOC..TRUE THE SPACE ADVENTURES ARE A GIVEN, BUT I THINK TWO SPACE ADVENTURES(EVEN THOUGH ITS A REBOOT) IN A ROW MIGHT GIVE THEM THE 'ONLY SPACE HEROES" THEME, THESE ARE ALL AROUND HEROES.
GUNSMITH - 9/14/2009, 4:41 AM
I AGREE JOSH, EVANS WOULD MAKE A GOOD FLASH...ASSASIN, YEAH ME I SOOOO HATED GALACTUS, A FREAKING CLOUD, THAT WAS RETARDED..DARK...SEE, DARKNIGHT HITS IT HUGE AND EVERYONE THINKS THAT IS THE RIGHT WAY TO GO BECAUSE IT WORKED FOR THEM, BATMANS DAARK MAKE EVERYTHING DARK FROM NOW ON...
ASSASSIN666 - 9/14/2009, 4:54 AM
GUNSMITH- What bothered me most about Galactus was when they show him passing Jupiter on the way to the Earth, they show his reflection off the planet as the way he originally drawn. You can see the outline of his helmet, that was the biggest let down, they could have had something good, but no! let's scumbag the comic fans once again-f**ks!
LEEE777 - 9/14/2009, 4:58 AM
EVANS would be the sh!ttest FLASH, its like having the same guy with different powers!!!

If he does a DC character it has to be completely different to his HUMAN TORCH character!
ASSASSIN666 - 9/14/2009, 5:00 AM
LEEE- You hit that nail on the head big time!!!
StephenStrange - 9/14/2009, 5:26 AM
omg.... LOL LEEE your crazy man. Funny. Hoff as The Beyonder????


dude... That's quite a transition. Drunken idiot eating off the floor to omnipotent deity. Somehow I just don't see it.

On the other hand it's a p[retty good riff on the retarded '80's mod hair do the Beyonder had lol

LiquidSnake - 9/14/2009, 5:52 AM
@Leee that is UNCANNY pic I vote yes for the HOFF

@ Assassin I agree, why ride the Dark Knight train?

They need to keep EVANS he has grown on me in the roles
and ALBA just grows on me on a different level.

They need to switch Mr Fantastic and Doom out.

Dr. Doom is one serious mofo he doesn't make jokes let alone corny ones like the movies.
animeex - 9/14/2009, 6:29 AM
I liked the group and the flicks... Not that there weren't problems. I didn't like the way they made or did Doom or Galactus. I just hope a reboot is better and not worse. Also, I hope they can find someone who looks that good in the suit as Alba.
samd577 - 9/14/2009, 6:38 AM
when will film-makers learn, sometimes we do want a lighter CBM story? Not every hero has to be dark and brooding ala TDK. Fantastic Four should be a more classic superhero story.
Sephox - 9/14/2009, 6:42 AM
@LEEE777

I agree i really liked him as the human torch, hope he comes back, and i guess its nice to know he's also enthusiastic about the films.
LEEE777 - 9/14/2009, 7:10 AM
Heh heh heh.

Okay next POLL will be THE BEYONDER lol! (Kiding lol).

ASSASSIN666 @ Yeah man! ; )

Samd577 @ Exactly!!

Darth @ Liquid @ Lmao!!!

An i agree with you, i hated DR DOOM, he by far was the worst part in both movies! DR 'NIP TUCK' wasn't DOOM, he's was pretty lame, i knew when they picked him, he'd be SH!T! : D

Really, we want different, FRESH Supervillains, not different versions of the same ones, whos to say FOX wont F it up again anyway, let MARVEL STUDIOS do it when they get 'em back, before then, lets just have FF3!!!

You want a DECENT DR DOOM, go over to HULK2099 MARVEL CAST!!! Its really good guys, its in FAN FIC!

LEEE777 - 9/14/2009, 7:14 AM
Stephox @ Yeah, i bet though he'd jump at the chance if he was asked! Plus no one can replace him, its like replacing RDJ, anyone else would just SUCK, he made that character his own!

Uh oh, got internet friggin problems again arghhh!

Bamf7 - 9/14/2009, 7:18 AM
Well..I'll say this...Doctor Doom absolutely needs to be darker.
superdog - 9/14/2009, 7:49 AM
Doom sucked. Julian mcmahaon is a decent actor but no doom. They didn't even give him a frigen accent and they totally changed his origins. I thought the movies were alright and they were faithful adaptations of the comics. Making them dark would just be stupid. My pick for mr fantastic is the guy who played Wesley on Buffy and angel. Can't remember his name.
spideysweb - 9/14/2009, 8:13 AM
I thought the movies were ok but they can't go dark as FF have always been and always will be very campy. That is why they won't really translate well to film. But that won't stop me from seeing it..LOL Bring back "Galactus Cloud" NOT....
greenlanternsector2814 - 9/14/2009, 8:41 AM
I say keep Evans and enlist Billy Crudup as Reed Richards. Alba's hot and did well but I can see someone else in the role. And for Thing, just CGI him. Look what they did with the Hulk? When they did both movies, they made sure Chiklis had some time out of costume just so they can show his face. Just use a voice actor. It would be better.
Betty - 9/14/2009, 8:41 AM
I dont know much about current FF. Is it dark now? Aside from all the "dark rein" stuff.

Yeah, if they'd have just put Galactus in the last one. Just put his legs in there. It would have been scary enough to have him standing on the earth with his head reaching space, causing all kind of natural disasters. I think they were afraid of the too many character thing. Galactus is more of a force of nature. They could have waited to develop his character till later movies. They had the surfer for the "humanizing".
