I don't think Fox can make this work, but I'm definitely hopeful. FF definitely can work as a movie, but they need to nail the casting. That's really where the last one went horribly wrong, among other reasons.

matthew vaughn jumped on as producer last week, so that's somewhat promising. and seth grahame smith was hired to touch up the script, which could go either way.

i wrote up my casting choices on my podcast's blog: http://www.moviesonup.com/?p=345

I refuse to let Edgerton go to the inferior Marvel cinematic universe when Dr. Strange is there for the taking. Muahaha.

Not bad choices though! Casting will really depend on the age range they want for the actors. They could theoretically go the Ultimate route with a cast that leans a bit younger.

Alternatively, I wouldn't mind Michael C Hall as Mr. Fantastic, Alice Eve as Sue, Alex Pettyfer as Johnny, and Nick Offerman as Thing. Yes, the last one may seem unconventional, but he's expressed interest in the role, has the gruff kind of voice, and we're not going to see the human version for long, if at all. For Doom, I like Cumberbatch a little more for that role, but I like the suggestion of Stephen Moyer or Viggo Mortensen.

Reportedly begins shooting in June...

Pretty early for a movie that's a little under 2 years away and has no announced cast yet. Perhaps they are planning on post-converting to 3D.

Man of Steel shot pretty early too didn't it?
It got pushed back though. It was originally slated for Christmas of last year.

I kind of hope they skew younger on the casting... Give me Scoot McNairy for Reed, Alice Eve for Sue, Logan Lerman for Johnny, and Karl Urban for Thing (CGI).

i like scoot. lerman is going too young though.
Eh he's 21/22... If it was a bit of a younger take, I think he could do it.

Wow. They are going really young. Miles Teller is supposedly Josh Trank's favorite to cast as Mr. Fantastic and Elizabeth Olsen is in the running to play Sue.

I wouldn't be mad with either. Teller's one of my favorite young actors.

Simon Kinberg (Mr. and Mrs. Smith, X-Men: The Last Stand) will do substantial rewrites and also produce this movie.

Race doesn't matter when you make a shitty movie.

From a casting call site where the film is set to shoot:

INSERT SHITTY PLOT IDEAS FROM FOX HERE.

If this is true, fuck Fox so hard.

Shouldn't Fox be more interested in making a movie people will go see rather than one that is diverse? I'm all for switching it up, but this doesn't help their reputation with fans.
Yeah. I'm not saying that it isn't partly a racial issue, but there's a good amount of fans who just want to see faithful adaptations of the characters. I certainly understand the argument for Michael B. Jordan because he's a great actor. However, would the same people who are saying there's no problem with him playing Johnny Storm have the same reaction to Tom Hardy playing Black Panther or Joe Manganiello playing Luke Cage? I'm not saying there couldn't be any race bending with the minor roles like Heimdall or Perry White, but I think it's perfectly fine to want to see the iconic heroes adapted faithfully.

Josh Gad may be Fox's #1 choice for Ben Grimm... Dear lord, Fox. Get yourself together.

There's so much leaking that has been largely hated by fans. Trank can deny all he wants, but some of it has to be true.
