Still, if Marvel were feeling brave, they could think about maybe a series of low-budget movies or HBO type show, set in the 1970s and featuring DD, Iron Fist, The Falcon and The Punisher (with no need to update the Vietnam origins of Mr Castle).
That would be great. It could be a whole separate part of universe from the Avengers one, in that you could still have the 70's characters appear as older incarnations of themselves in the avengers present day films.

Agreed. Corman's movie hit the "family" vibe, which is essential to a good FF tale, much more than the Story movie did. And Corman's movie was about people who were at least recognizable as Reed Richards and Victor Von Doom.
Crazy talk. I know it's popular to bash, but if there's one thing the Fox FF got right, it was that these characters had a (developing) relationship. And their Johnny and Ben were absolutely perfect.

I only hope Marvel doesn't let that shit happen again now that superhero movies have gotten so big. Constantin Films making a FF movie that they had no intention of releasing just to keep the rights was a dick move. Also Marvel has the big bad Disney lawyers on their side this time.

In Corman's movie all the characters and relationships were perfect. It was only the production values that were lacking.

Johnny and Ben were the only people that cared about in those movies.

I thought Chris Evans was good as Johnny, but I thought he was even better as Captain America. It helps that CA and Avengers blew away both FF movies in terms of quality.

Is there a reason it was never released on video? It sounds like more people should see it.

Exactly. Although, I grant Kestral's point about Story's Johnny and Ben. However, I also think that that relationship is the only thing Story's movie got 100% right.

I think it's funny that Marvel pretty much stole the only worthy actor from the FF movie, aside from Michael Chiklis, and made him Captain America. Evans was always their first choice for CA. To his credit he plays Johnny Storm and Steve Rogers as two completely different characters.

I still can't get over how completely miscast Doom was in the Tim Story movies.

I agree about Evans and Chiklis.

From what I understand Avi Arad ordered the negative burned when Fox acquired the rights to the franchise.

I really think Michael Chiklis should appear in Captain America 2. Evans and Chiklis reunion!

What about a younger actor playing Nick Fury with either one or two eyes and a big 'fro?!

Re: David Slade Will Direct Daredevil for Fox

Sorry for the double post, too late to edit the above one. Here's Carhaghan on his DD vision and why it couldn't happen:

I was brought in pretty late in the game," he says, "and my take probably didn’t help matters since they had an existing script. But I just thought that if you were going to do it, this was the way to go. It was initially something I passed on because Christopher Nolan had done such a lovely job with Batman and unless you’re going to go after that trilogy, then that’s how you have to think. You can’t out-hurdle that, then what’s the point of trying?

"So it set the bar extraordinarily high, and I thought ‘Well, if we’re going to do this, let’s have a discussion about Hell’s Kitchen, and how it was really Hell’s Kitchen in the '70s,' so that got me really excited. But as I mentioned, the clock ticking and this kind of October drop-dead date, it wasn’t tenable.

"Having gone down this road in the past," he continues, "when you’re trying to write something and shoot it at the same time, it's disastrous. I think you’d need an adequate amount of time to put that script together in the right way."
