    Possible list of contenders for the role of Doctor Doom. Unsurprisingly, given how young the FF are, they're also on the youthful side. I'm familiar with 3 of them anyway and while they're not obvious choices, I'd say that they bring a bit more clout and cred than Julian McMahon did.

    Not sure what the make of that. The Bleeding Cool guy does seem to get a fair amount of legitimate info though, so it isn't totally out of the realm of possibility.

    You say that as though the 2005 cast was any good.

    The cast looked good in stills.

    Really good.

    Ioan couldn't act for shit, or he was directed wrong, and the script sucked.

    Too many letters, but I get your meaning.

    If Stan plays Willie Lumpkin again, you all understand what that means right?

    It may be bull, but I can only hope. I think if Fox aren't worried to some extent, they're foolish.

    Is this because there were to many white people in the team?

    If you cast Stan Lee as Nathaniel Richards, and make him the lead and the star and the focus of the story, the movie writes itself (Okay, Mark Waid wrote it, but fuck it, Marvel owns his work... ) as he's zipping about through time encountering Reed and his friends at varying different points in their development, that they get aged in different directions and go through weird fashion and hair and we see different eras in the back ground, as well as Franklin and Valeria, but there's only one problem...

    Can Stan Lee actually act?

    It's been officially denied: http://badassdigest.com/2014/03/14/breaking-news-josh-trank-is-directing-fantastic-four/

    Max Landis, who wrote Trank's Chronicle and is friends with the director, also confirmed this on twitter.

    Seems like there was no truth whatsoever to this rumor.
