I hope they get Galactus right this time.

Sounds like a paradox to me.

Not if they do it like Fringe did! Very fantastical things can be grounded to reality if they are portrayed correctly.

I am ok with this.I didn't hate eather Dark Shadows or Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter.The other was intresting concept to take history and fantasy together.Which Is why
Matthew Vaughn may want to polish script.If you have ever watched the original Dark Shadows the film was a very approate tribute to show.Just because more didn't get It doesn't mean It was total crap.

I guess Fox may share rights with marvel to Kree like they do the skrulls.Nice bunch of characters they have to work with.This Is toal different approach than they did during rothman regime at fox.

Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter the book was much better than the movie, but that is subjective. As far as Dark Shadows the film being a tribute to the show? I don't see how, it was absolutely nothing like the show. I grew up watching the Soap Opera and the movie, though I enjoyed it, was nothing like the original tv show...except in the names of a few of the characters.

With all of that said, I enjoyed both movies, so I will hold judgement on this writer for the F4 movie itself.

Bear in mind that the article in question is rather indirect. It only says that Fox will tap the comic's mythology, then goes on to describe elements of that mythology. IOW, even if the gist is true, the list of details is very likely invented by the writer.

I'm worried about the Vampire Hunter writer polishing the script of this movie.

^True. "Script polishers" usually just liven up the dialogue.

I don't know why, when they do something like this, they seem to feel they have to make it a comedy rather than updating and capturing the feeling of the original. That was a particular pet-peeve of mine with Starsky and Hutch. I loved that show as a kid and I would have liked to see a film that captured the elements that I enjoyed in the original.

My cast

Reed Richards / Mr Fantastic - Patrick Wilson

Sue Storm / Invisible Woman - Rashida Jones

Johnny Storm / Human Torch - Jesse Williams

Ben Grimm / The Thing - Dean Norris

Also is it just me who feels their names / superhero aliases are kind of campy and outdated now?

Never thought about Jon Bernthal for Ben Grimm. He could be good.

These two actors would be inspired casting choices and fricking strokes of genius.

Let's us all hit our knees and begin beseeching the casting gods now. I'll lead in prayer...

It is like that with most updates from the 60's, 70's and 80's. Except for "The Mod Squad" I have to say, they really hit that on the money IMO.

Am I the first to point out March 6, 2015 is exactly 2 years from today?

Maybe we'll start getting some real news in the coming months.

I could see Wilson and Cumberbund going head to head intellectually.

I think Wilson is an underrated actor. He'd be perfecf for Reed actually.

And Cumby is just awesome as anyone he wants to play. I adore him. I don't want to another bland hottie.

I want Fox to choose someone interesting and unexpected for Sue.

I would be okay with Rashida Jones cause she can do the straight-"man" but still do a solid dramedy.

Wilson. I like the guy but he's kinda low-energy in everything I've seen and I want a Reed that is, if not take charge, is clearly inspiring to people.

Billy Crudup for Reed.

Benedict Cumberbatch would be a great Doom, but he doesn't have the good looks that Victor's supposed to have imo... at least before his scarring incident.
