Remember, Mark Millar is the advisor for Fox on their Marvel films, and he launched the Ultimate FF with Bendis. And I can see Millar being egomaniacal enough to tell Marvel that his version is the best, and therefore they all should be teenagers.
I actually enjoyed the Ultimate version although I haven't read it in a few years.

"sigh", somewhere Jack Kirby must be spinning in his grave. According to AICN, this guy Josh Grad is the top pick for Ben Grimm. This guy looks nothing like the tough guy from the mean streets of NY that became the Thing. I know for sure that I will be skipping this film next year!

Josh Grad recently voiced Olaf the Snowman in Disney's Frozen.

Why? Leaving aside, the merits or otherwise of this particular idea, From what we know of Kirby he would have *liked* the idea of trying something entirely new as that was his thing. When people say "what would Kirby do?" the answer is never "same old shit".

Margot Robbie would be great as a young Sue, but it looks like she wouldn't be available.

Wow, Trank works fast to deny every single negative rumor. I hope FOX is paying him very well.

You remember how the extreme internet reaction to the leaked Terminator 4 ending made the filmmakers panic and change it? Maybe if there is enough negative feedback on this attempt Fox will start to worry and push it back again and then accidentally run out of time and lose the rights? One can dream, right?

In other news, it has been officially announced that Gabourey Sidibe will be playing Sue Storm.

I'm starting to think someone is just trolling fandom now with these casting short lists.

But really. Why not? This guy looks like he could buff up a bit--Ben Grimm was never a tiny guy. Why even make a snap judgment about a character that is most likely going to be CGI most of the film?

If he's not lying, then it is kind of nice that Trank is actually so quick to put down these rumors. That way fan's don't spend forever throwing a fit about it and move on to the next thing to throw a fit about.

Except, in that case, the original ending for Terminator Salvation would have made it a better film.

Respectfully disagree. Skynet "protecting" humanity by wiping it out and remaking it with hybrids and then Marcus taking over as John Connor by wearing his face and killing all the other lead characters isn't my idea of a good Terminator film.

The filmmakers are probably starting all these rumors just so we're more grateful for whatever turd they come up with....
