Can't say the same about FF.
I honestly don't want to see this franchise flop again, but it's almost inevitable in FOX's hands.
Mickey, I need a prayer here...so work some of that Sorcerer's Apprentice mojo of yours LOL!
Or maybe Trank will pull a Vaughn move late 2013. These character are to precious to be left with the current axis of evil again.
That's why I said unless they could get a huge star. RDJ couldn't bring in the big bucks at that time but people still knew he could act. Same for Depp when it came to Pirates. I'm 100 perfect fine with an older Reed but I don't expect one unless they can get a name.
Josh Brolin would work...
even Ben Affleck...
they both look the part...
Ben Afleck is a good idea.
if they got they're powers in the 80's then Bruce Greenwood
Good choice... I never expected his name, but he'd be good as Reed. Pace is getting some deserved recognition after toiling for years now. One Twilight film, two Hobbit films, and a Spielberg film.
I expect him to get his own franchise to get recognition in. A F4 reboot would be right for him.
if they need a big names i say get a jude law for reed richards i think he would be a solid choice
older man at 40 yet still handsome looking and would play a scientist convincingly
He comes off as a smart guy and he's a charming actor. I recall somebody mentioning him many moons ago...
I'm not a fan of Affleck, I know everyone is gaga over him now but I find him to be a boring average actor.
I like Brolin but I'm not seeing it. I wouldn't object but I'd be weirded out until I saw photos of him in chatacter because he seems to tough for the role.
Jude seems a good choice.
I'd also consider Billy Crudup.
I'm hoping Mole Man is the main villain for this movie.
^he is my #1 choice but like i see spidey said he may not be an appealing name for fox
Cudrup would be awesome though...
I can't think of a good realistic choice for Sue. Any ideas?
Elizabeth Banks has always been my favorite
This was the case even before Rothman's exit. They've been nailing it for the last 2-3 years.
Claire Danes is at the top of my list. Of course that kinda rules out Crudup for Reed (long story).
My favorite choice for Reed is Alexis Denisof, but I also really like Lee Pace, and his chances seem good if they start casting anytime soon.
2015 will be too many superhero movies. I'm not saying people will lose interest,but some superhero movies may not enough breathing room.
BTW: Can someone gif this? It's awesome
Earth at Night
For Reed you need someone who can pull off the genius thing without opening his mouth. If Fox is committed to doing this right, the casting is not gonna be easy. If the're just going with someone who looks the part, that will be fairly easy but the movie will suck.
I still would try Elizabeth Banks for Sue. Gives off that older sister vibe and would fit the mold of realistically being attracted to Reed.
And more popular now than the casting of original films with films like hunger games
Jude Law could definitely work. The guy knows how to commit to every role.
Reed Richards - Andrew Lincoln
If you watch the Walking Dead, the guy can act. He's my first choice as Reed.
Sue Storm - Naomi Watts
Johnny Storm - Chris Pine
I've heard people say he would be better off as the next Green Lantern or Flash in a JL movie. I think he would make a fine JS in the FF reboot.
Ben Grimm - Domenick Lombardozzi
Victor Von Doom - Michael Kelly
Worked with Josh Trank in Chronicle
What do you guys think? Thoughts?
chris pine is a grown ass 32 year old man lol
johnny should be 18-26 year old actor imo
I think Pine may have gotten too big for that role. He's a leading man now, they ain't trying to put Captain Kirk into a supporting eye candy/comedy relief role.
