After the new Fantastic Four reboot came out, the Internet exploded, and not in a good way. Almost everyone who went to see this movie hated it, and because of that, I would like to propose a "What If Fan Cast" on the superhero team. I personally thought it wasn't the worst movie Fox has produced (looking at you X-Men Origins: Wolverine), but many people don't feel the same way. Everyone says that Marvel needs to take over the rights and do a reboot, and I agree. The cast could have been better, so let's take a look at who I would pick to play Marvel's first family!
Mr. Fantastic: Andrew Lincoln
While Andrew Lincoln may not look like the other two tall and slim actors who have played Mr. Fantastic, he certainly has potential in the role. He comes across as charismatic in every movie or TV show I've seen him in, he looks the part at least in the face, and he already has grey streaks in his hair. What more could you ask for?
The Invisible Woman: Charlize Theron
Charlize Theron is the perfect type of actress to take over as Sue Storm. She has the look (when she's not invisible), blonde hair, and acting skills that far exceed the current expectations of this role. I mean, honestly, didn't they cast the previous actresses just because of looks? That's what it seems like to me. But with such movies as Mad Max: Fury Road and Prometheus under her belt, hopefully she would be the actress to break this trend.
The Human Torch: Zac Efron
Before I get into this, I must say that I have nothing against Michael B. Jordan and transracial castings (or in other words, I'M NOT A RACIST!). Uh-Mhm. To me, Michael B. Jordan was the perfect choice for Johnny Storm at first, but it turns out that he just wasn't right for the character. Michael B. Jordan is like the real life Johnny Storm, but for some reason he just couldn't put that on screen. Zac Efron is also practically the real life Johnny Storm, but he's already put it on screen in Neighbors. I mean, he's the stereotypical pretty boy with a thirst for everything fast, how is that not one in the same? He really is the perfect choice.
The Thing: Charlie Hunnam
Almost (Almost) every character Charlie Hunnam has played has been this greasy tough guy who's itching to get his hands dirty. That is Ben Grimm. Charlie Hunnam was born for this. Even though we hardly see Ben before he gets turned into The Thing, Hunnam could nail it while he is. And then we would be relying on his voice talents, which with a few computerized tweaks, could be much like Jamie Bell's was.
Dr. Doom: Jon Hamm
Jon Hamm's whole acting presence is oozing with mystery, deception, and pure darkness. He's perfectly cut out to play the evilest of evil, and I can't envision anyone better than Dr. Doom. I can imagine Victor before the accident in space being much like Don Draper, almost to a tee. And then Dr. Doom could basically be homicidal maniac Don Draper. You can't say that Jon Hamm wouldn't act this perfectly, because the man has been preparing for this role his entire career.
