Re: Fantastic Four reboot-- Casting, Rumors, Pix, ect;

I wouldn't mind an element of realism, at least in the kind of verite approach to a fantasy subject that Trank employed in Chronicle. It can make a wild fantasy easier to buy into if it's presented in a way that feels naturalistic.

But "gritty?" The Fantastic Four? That doesn't seem right to me. I'm not as familiar with the FF as I am with characters like Spidey or the X-Men, but from what I've read, they seem to be sort of the Star Trek of the Marvel Universe -- the explorers and builders, defined by a spirit of optimism and adventure. They should be upbeat.
