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 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.

adoption is a real thing.

a brother and sister being different races is completely realistic and not too hard to believe in a movie about people with super powers gained from space.

I really don't see how that synopsis is that bad.

its a fine synopsis other than the fact that it completely throws out the fantastic four origin story.

i like teller a lot, i just have zero interest in seeing that young of a fantastic four.

jordan i'm all for, because johnny was always younger. but i just can't buy teller as one of the greatest scientists in the world.

color isnt always a character trait though. jordan as johnny, or even glover as spider man, work because theyre both more than capable of pulling off the charm and personality of the characters. their upbringings and background arent color specific.

but with characters like black panther or luke cage, their culture and background are very much tied to their race. changing one of them would be on a whole new level and wouldnt be acceptable.

characters like spawn or blade fall into the same category as johnny and peter parker. sure, theyre black, but that really doesnt have anything to do with their character. theyd work the same as white men.

in most cases, you end up loving characters because of their personality and their character, not because of how they look. if somebody that looks different can do an amazing job bringing the personality i love to life, im all for it.
