I understand that The Fantastic Four is due for a movie reboot. While the first two entries had some fun moments, they are largely missed opportunities. Hopefully lesson will have been learned and we will finally see the epic FF film that I know is possible. Ben Grimm's Thing form must be CGI, the man in suit version simply does not work. I'd love to see a take on Doctor Doom that was actually faithful to the comics, but given his large role in the first two movies, it is time to give him a rest. A better angle would be a Negative Zone adventures, with a suitably creepy Annihilus and brutish Blastaar as the villains. Spend a little more money this time around on shots of Reed and Johnny using their powers and play up the adventurers aspect of the team and it would be a superhero film that really stands out among the crowd.
