Fantastic Four remake?!
Can you believe that they are remaking The Fantastic Four? Well 20th Century Fox want a remake apparently, and they've imaginatively decided what they want for the new film, it's something you won't believe and would never guess. It's one word, begins with “d” and ends in “arker”.
Guessed it? Yes they're looking to redo the Fantastic Four but make the film darker, less cartoon like and more realistic, well going by the current trend of superhero films anyway.
According to the report through IESB the studio are looking to remake the film and follow the trend of Iron Man (Filmstalker review) and The Dark Knight (Filmstalker review)., and if we're being honest that's a good way to go for the franchise.
However this looks like it's going to be a complete restart, if IESB are correct in what they are saying. They're talking none of the original Fantastic Four (Filmstalker review) cast and definitely not the original director, yippee.
Yet I think they'll be missing out because at least Michael Chiklis was good in his role, and Chris Evans was not bad, as for the rest of the casting I'm just not so sure if it was them or it was the tepidly warm script.
What I do know is that the Fantastic Four films just didn't cut the mustard, and with the quality of superhero films out there now they are nowhere near on a par with Iron Man and Batman series.
The question though is do you still want to see Fantastic Four films, and do you want them darker? Do you want them at all?
