Now, the folks in charge of this movie are talking about making the movie more realistic and gritty.
Realistic and Gritty movie about a man who stretches his body, a woman who turns invisible, a man made out of Orange Rocks AND a man who lights himself on fire and FLIES!?
Aside the Horrible Casting choices. (All 3 Male Leads), the idea of a Gritty Fantastic Four is MORONIC!
Punisher, Blade, Dare Devil, Iron Fist, Power Man, Wolverine, Venom, Deathlok, Ghost Rider, (giant-sized) Man-Thing, the Midnight Sons and X-Men lend themselves to Gritty movies
The Fantastic Four lend themselves to Adventure styled movies. There is some sort of Jules Verne inspiration in some of their earlier adventures. The Microverse, Subterranea, Atlantis, The Negative Zone. All of these lend themselves for Adventure movies with the F4. Something along the lines of the Journey to movies.
The Skrulls, Namor and the Atlanteans, the Puppet Master are great Fantastic Four villains that are not only Fantastic enough, OK Puppet Master is not that Fantastic, but his powers are pretty cool and I just want to avoid using the Latverian Diva.
We need someone that is NOT Freaking Doctor Doom in a Fantastic Four Movie. IF Doom Happens, he'd better Wear THE REAL DOOM Clothing. (As seen on the Pic above)
Is it a little bit too much to ask for a Fantastic Four movie that RESPECTS the Source Material?
