    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....

    I actually wouldn't be too surprised if someone from Hollywood actually did do that.

    I haven't seen the Wolf of Wall Street yet but I just saw a picture of Margot Robbie and she looks like she'd make a good Sue Storm. Of course I have no idea what her acting is like so she could totally suck.

    I have some bad news. I write some movie reviews occasionally for a website and they ran a story about the rumours that Reed would get his powers as a kid. The owner of the site got an e-mail from Fox complaining about posting the article that gave the plot away.

    Maybe if we all spread that around, they'll be forced to abandon that (crappy, goes against the history) plot. Does Stan have to okay any of this?

    He may not even care. Stan is all about being a salesman. As long as he gets paid, it's probably okay with him. I mean, I love The Man, but that's how it is.

    There is just too much in the comic-to-film news that has my interest to not be too vested in the FF film at this point.

    Cap2 is 60-ish days out
    TASM2 is 75-ish days out
    XM: DOFP is 90-ish days out

    Ant-Man casting underway
    AoU is in full pre-production
    MoS2/JLA/BvS whatever they call it is casting
    Agents of SHIELD just aired a great cliffhanger as we go into Olympic break
    Thor Dark World Blu Ray w/All Hail the King Marvel Short is getting buzz(haven't seen it yet)
    Agent Carter tv series is seemingly moving ahead.


    FF has had a series of delays, Fox let DD go and things just aren't looking all that interesting on the FF front as a Fox production at present.

    If Reed is going to be so young, maybe Dr. Doom will be his mom....
