Well, unfortunately, the new Fantastic Four movie gets more and more hate by the minute. Even by one of my favorite film critics, Chris Stuckmann, who I have never seen so ENRAGED by any film... not even by the complete atrocity that is "Movie 43"! You can check out his review for the film here if you wish.
As you can see, people hate this film with a passion. But I am not here to talk about the recent reboot, as I have yet to see it myself. But hearing what I have about it, I sense this new incarnation of the team will not last, just whither and die out like the short-lived TASM franchise. Instead I will just talk about the inevitable possibility of yet ANOTHER reboot and what I want from it. (aside from obviously wanting Marvel to obtain the rights)
1. NO ORIGIN STORY!!!
That's right, I want an already established Fantastic Four, and what's wrong with that? They've done it with Guardians Of The Galaxy, Ant-Man, Daredevil, even back in the day with Tim Burton's "Batman", and they are all great movies with no need of explanation. That doesn't mean there can't be flashbacks, I just want them to already have their powers from the get go so they can kick WAY more ass. And also this allows for an older, veteran team of superheroes.
2. Give us a BAD-ASS Doctor Doom for once!
Now, I cannot say much about Toby Kebbell's version, but people who have seen the new film absolutely despise him, saying Julian McMahon's incarnation was far more accurate to the source material, and that is quite a stretch.
But I am sure fellow fans can agree with me when I say that I want to see the Latverian magic-weilding dictator we all know and love from the comicbooks and multiple animated tv series. Yeah you know, the man who gave up the one and only love of his life to the devil himself just to gain more power. That is the sick, lovable bastard I want to see come to the big screen... not these jealous idiots with metal skin and a god complex. Who's with me?
I'll drink to that... Uh-Oh! This brings me to my final point... Drum roll, Please!
3. No Intoxicated Filmmakers!
I just recently found out about Josh Trank's highly unprofessional behavior on the Fantastic Four set, and I am sick. Just because he made ONE good movie (Chronicle), doesn't mean I'm gonna give him a free pass! If you are lazy enough to get drunk and high off of your ass while making a film that is not a SPOOF or SHARKNADO, you should not be in the filmmaking business! It's that simple.
Which is why I would suggest a director like Chris Columbus(I know, Pixels was bad, but his other movies were great), Matthew Vaughn, Stephen Spielberg (bit of a stretch I know), or even J.J. Abrams. Just ANYONE really who won't be as lazy!
No, I don't know who would be a good cast for the movie, but I am quite fond of the idea of Jeff Goldblum (even though he is 62 years old) being Reed Richards.
