Wow. The fantastic four are confirmed in the fantastic four movie? Who'd have thunk it?

Also, you know it's sad when a silver surfer is confirmed yet norrin radd himself is still rumored.
BobGarlen - 5/13/2024, 12:41 PM
@Origame - Man, fans of the "New Fantastic Four" are sure to be upset by that reveal eh?
MuadDib - 5/13/2024, 1:05 PM
@Origame - If Norrin Radd isn’t used properly, it’ll be a damn shame.

Here’s hoping Disney doesn’t fumble the ball while trying to be inclusive and diverse.
Origame - 5/13/2024, 2:40 PM
@MuadDib - I mean, I genuinely don't know how when they're blatantly removing his role from the story and giving it to a different character.
ObserverIO - 5/13/2024, 3:32 PM
@Origame - I feel like they're taking my own manhood off me and giving it to Julia Garner to wear. Whatever will I ever do now? A man with no dick. All because of [frick]ing Disney and Marvel! I'm a man with no dick!!!!!
elcapitan - 5/13/2024, 3:34 PM
@Origame - How old were you in 2005? Why would they want to do exactly the same story that was told in Rise of the Silver Surfer?
Origame - 5/13/2024, 3:47 PM
@ObserverIO - yes, thanks for making this about her being a woman instead of being a gender swapped version of a male character.

Many of us complaining about this are pointing out there are female heralds of galactus.
Origame - 5/13/2024, 3:48 PM
@elcapitan - yes, because changing the gender changes the story so much 🙄
ObserverIO - 5/13/2024, 4:05 PM
@Origame - Those other female heralds are nowhere near as exciting as the Silver Surfer.
Origame - 5/13/2024, 4:17 PM
@ObserverIO - but the silver surfer is a man.
lvcl - 5/13/2024, 4:35 PM
@Origame - This smell like another bull-flop of the MCU.

They don't learn from previous failures.
Origame - 5/13/2024, 4:43 PM
@lvcl - say it with me, south park fans!

Put a chick in it and make her gay!
Malatrova15 - 5/13/2024, 5:53 PM
@Origame - ok thats enough buddy.
Origame - 5/13/2024, 5:59 PM
@Malatrova15 - ...enough of acknowledging the truth?
Malatrova15 - 5/13/2024, 6:56 PM
@Origame - enough of denying Josh true call as a journalist, YOU WILL NOT DIVIDE US
Origame - 5/13/2024, 7:31 PM
@Malatrova15 - this day I still don't know if you're a troll or not.
Malatrova15 - 5/13/2024, 7:35 PM
@Origame - thats exactly what a troll would say . you will not gaslight me
WhatIfRickJames - 5/13/2024, 12:14 PM
Anyone could be rumored at this point if some one mentions it. Agatha Harkness, Molecule Man, Annihulus, Impossible Man.

WhatIfRickJames - 5/13/2024, 12:15 PM
I heard a rumor that the Thinker was in this! Put it on the list!
ObserverIO - 5/13/2024, 3:35 PM
@WhatIfRickJames - Well if the Thinker's in this then that means Andy the Awesome Android is in it too! That's awesome!
WhatIfRickJames - 5/13/2024, 4:01 PM
DocSpock - 5/13/2024, 12:14 PM


It may take me until the movie comes out to sort through and process all of this exciting information.

Malatrova15 - 5/13/2024, 12:16 PM
GaruVonDoom - 5/13/2024, 12:17 PM
Doom's appearance doesn't suggest he'll be the villain or a villain - he was a necessary ally to the F4 when facing the celestials, Galactus, and the council of Reeds.

I think that if he's in the film, which he very likely will be, he's as likely to play an antagonistic role as that of a supporting role.

@GaruVonDoom - "I found it beneath me" Such a cool f***ing line from Doom. I hope that hubris carries over into the movies.
TheVisionary25 - 5/13/2024, 12:17 PM
I could see Paul Walter Hauser as Mole Man but I have a feeling he’s voicing H.E.R.B.I.E since it could fit the character imo…

Vigor - 5/13/2024, 12:18 PM
Never been a fan of f4. Other than human torch I just found them dull
However it's the MCU. And one thing MCU gets well are the dynamics snd interactions with an ensemble of characters. Arguably the reason avengers 1 worked and kicked this all off was it was seeing these characters interact in such a casual and fun personal way even without powers on display

So yes this is the most excited I've been for a f4 movie
TheVisionary25 - 5/13/2024, 12:24 PM
@Vigor - I agree in terms of the character dynamics , they need to get the family relationships down in this..

I also am interested to see this new reality aswell since no doubt it might destroyed at the end of this or even Secret Wars

I’mGlad Marvel is branching out and focusing on certain worlds in the multiverse itself since I feel that might factor in to those Avengers films like What If ,Marvel Zombies ,Your Friendly Neighborhood Spider Man and now this seemingly…

It is the Multiverse saga after all.
GaruVonDoom - 5/13/2024, 12:28 PM
@Vigor - I lost all hope with the MCU after Dr Strange MoM, I got into a very deep depression since it was one of the things I loved about living - these fictional characters inspiring hope and meaning with their stories - so I gave up on it. That led me to start reading comics again - I had read the Kirby comics as a kid but then I got into movies which led me to discontinue it.

When I heard Matt was directing F4, I was intrigued. I started reading modern comics - Hickman's Avengers, F4, Immortal Hulk, Secret Empire, Kang Time Runs Out, Kang the Conqueror, etc etc etc etc. The stories were awesome, it satiated what I craved from the MCU that I was missing. Then Loki came out, and like the Two Towers climax when Gandalf the White leads the charge for Helm's Deep - that show brought back a speck of hope in the MCU for me.

I still wasn't excited for the movies, nor the projects - but following the reports of Feige and Iger retooling their projects, Daredevil reshoots, Deadpool looking awesome, Thunderbolts being written by The Bear's writer, Blade being worked on by Logan's scribe, and everything related to the Fantastic Four - I am now optimistic for the MCU again. Which I haven't been for 2 years. And I hadn't been as excited for a movie since 2018 for IW, now it being Deadpool.

There is nothing more I'm waiting for than the F4 movie, I think it will be the pinnacle of retooling what comic book movies can be in 2025, along with Superman.

Here's to good health to you so we can enjoy these films and either complain about or give praise to.
Doomsday8888 - 5/13/2024, 12:25 PM
F4 might be underrated characters but Doom is fosho overrated af, never got the appeal, i can understand every other big Marvel baddie but not Doom, SA type of shit i guess...
Vigor - 5/13/2024, 12:36 PM
@Doomsday8888 - I didn't get doom either until they started really leaning into his batman plot armor. By that i mean, doom has a solution for every situation he comes across. Just like how batman can 🙄 defeat anyone with enough prep time.

It's funny but almost adds a SUPER POWER to his arsenal in a way. That plus him speaking of himself in the third person... the pompous narcissist he is... and yeah I'd like to see that portrayal on screen done right
Doomsday8888 - 5/13/2024, 12:51 PM
No wonder...i hate that Batman plot-armor!😂

Speaking in 3rd person is ok, it can be cool sometimes.

Let's see what the MCU does tho.
WakandaTech - 5/13/2024, 12:34 PM
This is probably the way in went in the Silver Surfer conversation

Fegie " Norrin Radd Silver Surfer is an amazing character he could be as popular and profitable as Iron Man
The Iron Man in Space"

Activist " Yeah, we want Silver Surfer to be female"

Feige " You can't gender swap this character the fans will revolt"

Activist " Well is there not a female Silver Surfer we can use?"

Feige " Yeah but no one knows or cares about that character"

Activist " Well we don't care about making the fans happy or making movies for profit
We care about virtual signaling and driving the agenda"

Feige " What ever you say you guys are the bosses"
elcapitan - 5/13/2024, 3:37 PM
@WakandaTech - the only thing this fake conversation shows is that you probably need to learn how to meditate and quiet your mind.
DravenCorvis - 5/13/2024, 12:35 PM
You can't use CanWeGetSomeToast as a crutch anymore - or at least for a while.

Wonder if you'll be using lists even more now 🤔
TheVisionary25 - 5/13/2024, 12:36 PM
Malkovich could be Mole Man aswell but I have a feeling he could be Dr Franklin Storm , the father of Johnny & Sue…

User Comment Image

I could see him as the dad to Vanessa Kirby & Joseph Quinn.

He might even be playing a different villain such as The Red Ghost or Puppet Master.
WhateverItTakes - 5/13/2024, 12:42 PM
this is your last chance to the the f4 done right
TheMetaMan - 5/13/2024, 12:59 PM
Im not an F4 fan by any means, I like the concept and i actually enjoyed the movies although the 2015 reboot was a wasted opportunity. The only thing that does appeal to me is the return of Dr Doom and the introduction of Franklin Richards. I really wanna see how the child will fare on the big screen. Other then that, this could be just another fantastic four movie. 🤷🏿‍♂️
MarvelZombie616 - 5/13/2024, 3:12 PM
The F4 comic isn't great for the F4 themselves, but for all the supporting characters, villains and concepts introduced.

The only solo series/character that worked is the Thing.
RolandD - 5/13/2024, 5:45 PM
No wonder I have always liked that picture of Galactus. I’ve often thought that the artist was strongly influenced by Neal Adams only to find out it was Adams. One of the greatest comic book artists of all time. Fight me about it. @Nomis929 . 😂
