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

What I really think Marvel and the other studios need to do is work out some kind of shared custody of the Universe kinda thing - I mean the above poster saying that "well the X-Men's civil rights issue would be undercut by the FF" - which is pointless really since in the main Marvel Universe -the FF are right there alongside the Mutants and such. But it's the Mutants that get the flak. Could actually be an interesting story - the Fantastic Four or Avengers or some other super heroes do the same thing the X-Men do, but the X-Men have bottles thrown at them and told "Muties go home!" while the FF are given awards and people ask for their autographs. Sort of a "well that's not fair, they got powers too."

I think it could work. I still see no reason why a rebooted FF couldn't play nicely within the First Class rebooted X-Men really. Or why they couldn't name drop from the Marvel Films and Sony. ASM almost did cross over with MF and y'know even in the comics each character and team can be totally indepedent from each other. X-Men stories usually focus on just the X-Men, same with FF or Avengers. Heck, it feels like that failed inititive from the late 90s pre-Heroes Reborn when Marvel was segregated. Spider-Man was it's own little pocket. Avengers was in its own little pocket. X-Men were in their own little pocket. Marvel Edge was the "supernatural and more 'edgy' stuff like Ghost Rider, Nightstalkers, Punisher, Morbius. It wasn't until the Onslaught event that they changed the editorial mandate and let crossovers happen again.

Their thing was a few characters here and there could cross over as long as it didn't interfere with what was going on in other stories. Like if say, Human Torch wasn't really being used, as the current FF stories were all about Reed and Sue, then Torch could pop up in Spider-Man but that was about it. Each editor had their own "domain" and that was that.

It seems like that is what is happening with the movies and TV shows - you've got the X-Men with one "Editor" , the FF with one "Editor" you got Spider-Man with one "Editor" and the Avengers and the general "Marvel Universe" under another.

Although since Disney does have deep pockets - hell they own Star Wars AND Marvel sooner or later Disney is going to get it into their lawyer's heads that the only studio that "Deserves" to have the valuable IP that is the Marvel Universe is Disney/Marvel Films and Sony and Fox will eventually lose what they had - which would be a good/bad thing since that'd probably mean we'd get 'reboots' again...

I'd be happier if the FF and Spider-Man were licensed to the same movie studio, since those characters have a long history together, and Spidey's actually been a member of the FF (in one form or another) in recent years. So a crossover between them -- maybe a Future Foundation movie, or at least some good old-fashioned Spidey-Torch rivalry -- would be nice to see.


Or why they couldn't name drop from the Marvel Films and Sony.
Names are intellectual property. They couldn't name-drop without permission from the license-holder. Sure, a movie can refer to a character from another franchise as a fictional character -- for instance, Aunt May in Spider-Man 2 telling Peter "You're not Superman, you know" -- but if you're claiming that character actually exists as a real person in your movie's universe, then that's using the character as part of your story, however peripherally, and you need permission for that.

So as you say, it would be nice if the respective license-holders could work out a cooperative agreement so they could reference each other's films. But it's not something they can just casually do.

I've no clue who she is...I have seen mention of her, but she looks like she could be Susan. Casting is going to be very interesting to keep an eye on.

I'm having trouble separating her from her character on Girls though I'm not really familiar enough with Sue Storm to have a strong opinion about how she should be portrayed.

I just read a headline that said 'Girls' Star Could Land Big New Role and I knew it would be Allison Williams.

Interesting choice, though if he did get the part, then it's unlikely Williams would be cast as his sister -- or vice-versa. But it's good that they're open to different options rather than defaulting to white.

I had to look up "SMH," but apparently means "shake my head" as if in disapproval. I don't see any reason to object to Jordan being considered. He was good in Chronicle, and he has the right kind of charisma and attitude for Johnny.

It could still work if he was her adopted brother in this new incarnation, IMO. It could even wind up making them even closer as siblings than in the previous movies if one was over-protective of the other because of the adoptive status.
But it's good that they're open to different options rather than defaulting to white.

Agreed. I really hope they go with him.

Yes Shaking my head lol!! Jordan was excellent in Chronicle and I don't mind some changes here or there, but the Torch is white! How about a white guy for the Black Panther lol?? I cant think of any alternate story's that featured him as a black guy as far as I remember!
