    By the time a new FF movie would be viable it wouldn't be a problem.

    Richards---Alexis Denisof
    Susan---Charlize Theron (if older), younger Rachel McAdams
    Johnny--Logan Lerman or Zac Efron
    Ben--???

    Doom--Mads Mikkelsen for the total performance but if we are needing just a voice behind the armor, Bill Nighy would be ideal

    I wouldn't mind Ioan Gruffudd playing Reed again, but we all know that's not going to happen. I don't mind Jessica Chastain to be Sue but I do think she's too tall. I want her for Carol Danvers (Captain Marvel) anyway. As for Johnny I too agree that he should be younger around Peter Parker's age so that rules out Zac Efron, sorry but Alex Pettyfer would have been sweet. Anyway...

    Reed Richards: Alexis Denisof/Jason Bateman/Patrick Dempsey
    Susan Storm: Jennifer Morrison/Keri Russell
    Ben Grimm: Joel Edgerton/Tom Hardy
    Johnny Storm: *cannot decide*

    Doctor Doom: Mads Mikkelson would go hand in hand with Denisof I suppose. But for Doom in costume I for some reason want him played by an actor like how David Prowse was Darth Vader in costume but with Mads providing his voice, just so he actually looks physically imposing.

    Reed Richards - Hugh Dancy / Jon Hamm
    Sue Storm - Alice Eve
    Johnny Storm - Zac Efron
    Ben Grimm - Joel Edgerton
    Victor Von Doom - Richard Armitage
    Harvey Elder - Eddie Marsan

    Doctor Doom : Richard Armitage

    Btw, I liked the suggestions of Jennifer Morrison and Keri Russell as Sue stormm. They both play kick butt moms and would both bring spunk and excitement to the role which has been lacking in previous portrayals.

    And I'll add:

    Eddie Redmayne as Victor Von Doom/Doctor Doom

    [​IMG]

    And...

    Tom Kenny as H.E.R.B.I.E. (Voice only)(Duh)

    [​IMG]

    Funny thing: He has played another MCU 'character' before.

    I never understood why people said Andrew looked too old to be a teenager in Spiderman. The first time I saw him I thought he looked 20. If anti young cast is the thing, I would think Andrew is a bad choice. Zac also looks young.

    I think characterization is the key. You can't say he looks the same age in The Amazing Spider-Man

    Than he does in Silence

    Just look at both Jesse Eisenberg and Jared Leto. A LOT of people said they looked too young for the roles (even though their ages were ok) but, personally, I totally buy them as Luthor and The Joker.

    The rest I'm pretty open to several actors.


    But Doom? Gotta be this guy:

    The casting is pointless now, because by the time another F4 can be made it'll be 10-15 years. Who knows what actors will be good in the roles in 2025.

    I'll say it again, although he is too old now, Justin Timberlake was the ideal Johnny Storm...Efron would be his natural successor.

    The audience needs to believe that Johnny Storm can double as a pop star.

    I think you're confusing Johnny Storm with Dazzler.

    Honestly I didn't think the casting was the issue, the story was.

    I actually still think the perfect Doom would be Benedict Cumberbatch, but he's obviously already taken.

    He was one of my Doom picks as well. Strong presence, booming voice, talented actor overall. He would've bee great.

    If Marvel got the Fantastic Four rights back they could make Doctor Doom & Doctor Strange twins separated at birth.:cwink:

    Johnny Storm is well known to be a wanna be pop star. Hell the last run by Robinson mentions it.

    I actually haven't given this much thought because the cast truly was a good one, the director just had no clue what he was doing with them.

    Btw, I personally think Lee Pace would make a better Doctor Doom than Reed Richards. He did an exceptional job as Ronan but with a villain like Doom? In the hands of a powerful writer and director it'd be glorious.
