Default Re: What tone should this new franchise go for?

I would like to see something akin to deadly serious. I wouldn't mind a little shock value in the next FF. Not so over the top cornball like the first film. The 2nd film's tone was much better in fact. This reboot would be a great opportunity to get a good portrayal of Reed, the scientist. Ioan Gruffudd is a wonderful actor, but the Reed/Sue pushover dynamic has been done to death. We should get confidence from Reed this go round as well as a good actor for Sue. I want to see a real actress tackle Sue Storm and a much better script.

Jerry and Joe were gentlemen. Bob Kane was a thief and a glory-hound who was more concerned about profit and prestige. I cannot bring myself to believe the same things about Stan Lee in regards to his two main contributors, Jack Kirby and Steve Ditko. I'm inclined to believe Stan's version of events as he has usually been very willing to credit his co-conspirators, but the truth is because different versions of credit exists, we will never truly know.
