I'm actually happy that they're rebooting Fantastic Four because the series was nothing like the comics, and frankly, it wasn't that good, so: let's re-cast this *****.

My choices are:
Reed Richards/Mister Fantastic: Joseph Fiennes
Sue Storm/ The Invisible Woman: Rachel McAdams(My backup is Naomi Watts.)
Johnny Storm/ The Human Torch: Chris Pine
Ben Grimm/ The Thing: Jeffrey Dean Morgan(And as Voiceover)
Victor Von Doom/ Dr. Doom: Mark Strong
Galactus: CGI/Voiceover by James Earle Jones
Silver Surfer: Djimon Hounsou

Thoughts?

What are YOUR choices?

P.S. Here's my casting blog, check it out:

If by "nothing like the comics", you mean "deeply flawed with an extremely lackluster Dr. Doom, but at least they got the most important part of the FF done perfectly (the family dynamic of the group)" then I agree.
 
Chris Pine is too old for Johnny. But it is your fantasy cast list so...carry on.
 
Isn't there already a thread for this?

Thanks for not being one of those a**holes that's just trolling.
But, Pine is only 28, and he can play 25. My Sue is McAdams OR Watts, and they're about 30, so they're the right age difference.
 
Here's my cast, I used Jack Kirby's designs from "The coming of Galactus" as inspiration...

Doctor Reed Richards- Matthew Morrison

Susan Storm- Elizabeth Banks

Johnny Storm- Andrew Bowen Stern or Hunter Parrish

That's an awesome cast! I believe his name is Kevin Michael Richardson. And Duncan would be GREAT for Galactus! Elizabeth Banks WOULD be a good Sue! GREAT JOB!

Oh cheers, you're right about Richardson. Thanks for that.:yay:

and thank you and Cousin Itt for being so nice and positive :yay::yay:
 
maybe Timothy Spall for Moleman? Danny DeVito or Andy Serkis would be good too, but i think Spall would be fantastic (no pun intended) as Moleman.
 
Much as I generally don't do fan casting suggestions, I'm liking the idea of Kristianna Loken as Sue.
 
i'm not sure about Loken. i mean, she really can't act. bloodrayne, transformers 3... it really shows when she tries to act but can't. she's a pretty right-out bad actress...

so as far as the movies go, the only thing Loken is good for , is Loken at?! i don't know, i have only seen her in T3, and thought she was quite good at the robo acting, not the best role to gauge acting though.

but i have to say, i like the casting sheet that Eddie Dean posted up,...i have no idea who the actors are who he wants for Sue or Johhny, but they both look spot on.
what is a real shame about the TS FF movies is that they had a truly great Johnny Storm in Chris Evans, he will be a hard act to follow for that actor, the others will have easier jobs doing their own thing. But there are a lot of funny, chrasmatic guys out there, whoever gets it should just try to forget about him and get on with having fun in the role.


i would love to see Daniel Dae Kim as Namor, his arc in Lost is very Namor, in fact, did he not meet up with them and discuss that possibility? I think he did.

Good call on Hunter Parrish as the Torch.
 
Decent cast Brian but Shannon would tower over Messina.
