Fantastic Four and The Creeper



Who should the Fantastic Four face on the big screen when they finally get a Marvel produced movie of their own.  We still have not seen proper versions of Dr. Doom and Galactus, so I wouldn' mind either of them getting another chance.  Sticking with the origin and bringing in the Mole Man's subterranean world could be very cool with the right director and designs.  My top choice would be a rollicking Negative Zone adventure, complete with Blastaar and Annihilus!

We already got a pretty good F.F. movie... The Incredibles.

Personally, I think they should hold off on Doom and Galactus. Build to them.

The first movie, in my eyes anyway, should focus on them as explorers, or at least there more atypical villains.

The Skrulls would really be perfect, making it more in line with a sci-fi thriller, but they have been earmarked.

Mole Man, and his giant and average sized monsters wold be great.

Also Namor, but sadly...

F.F. and the Incredibles are now both owned by the same company!

Looks like the Creeper went back in time to change the events of STF #2443. Namely, preventing Reed from falling under Eclipso's sway.* A story arc one could entitle... "Days of FFuture Past."

*ALWAYS wanted to use that word!

Jay Johnson said...

So, I'm guessing it was Spidey in Creeper's spot in the original image (from an interior page?) with an entirely different background.

Bob Greenwade said...

Not so much going back in time to change #2443, but finding a way to cure Reed by taking on the madness for himself... and the events of the two intervening issues were affected by that event, and also provided a way for the FF to deal with this one! (You see how much your blog fosters creativity, Ross?)

(Hmmm... if the Creeper were to be amalgamated with Iceman, would the result be called Lunatic Fridge?)

I, for one, would welcome a FF film with Mole Man or Annihilus. The second could use Hate-Monger or the Puppet Master to comment (indirectly, of course) on current events (with Skrull involvement if they're the Phase 4 "big bad"). Dr. Doom, Namor, and most others can wait... but Galactus should be his own event at the top of one of Marvel's big Phases.

And finally, from the Department of Bob Stays Up Too Late: Batman and (Christopher) Robin@

The Mole Man, I want to see and hear Millennials and Ignorant Gen X-ers complain about how the Incredibles & the Under-Miner were ripped off by MARVEL. IT WILL BE GLORIOUS!!

Ross said...

Jay, you guess correctly!

ELS said...

Seems kinda obvious to me. Most people know of the Fantastic Four. So we want a good visual enemy, who puts up a great fight, and who's got a great twist.

I nominate the Impossible Man. Half a movie serious, then Reed (or Ben) finds out that all of the "fights" are just pranks. There are a couple of ways to resolve this... "Ben! Get him with the lemon juice!" "Oh, yeah, stretch! IT'S SLOBBERIN' TIME!"

That even keeps with the lighter tone of some of the MCU offerings. I think this could be the FFs big re-entre into the Marvel universe.

The HIGH Evolutionary & The Knights of Wundagore! "It Will Be Glorious" - Worf Son of Moag. I have seen nothing earthbound that matches the sheer spectacle & Grandeur of them and their home Mount Wundagore in a live action movie PERIOD. Some have come close but close does not count.

Have Mister Freeze team up with The Underminer VS The Mole King & both of the Kingdoms under San Lorenzo (Dreamworks Puss In Boots Netflix Series).
A pre-Broken "Bally" episode.

I hope they don't do they origin again. They may have to just to explain their sudden appearance in the MCU, but I would rather the story pick up after they have the powers and have begun operating as the Fantastic Four. They can recap the origin through a quick news story on a tv or through a brief flashback.

Bob Greenwade said...

Cheech & Chong meet the High Evolutionary? Nah....

Staying up too late so you forget that idea was from the comments in this blog only two months ago here. The more I think about it, the more I'd like to see it.

Marc Harkness said...

I think the MCU is where Dr. Doom can FINALLY be done right. He needs to be built up in a way that was not possible in the Fox FF movies. He needs to be introduced as Doom of Latveria, without the FF or the WILL BE FF in the picture yet. He is Doom whose lands and people suffered. The Avengers might have failed to prevent the Decimation but the UN did NOTHING. He will not leave the fate of Latveria in the hands of fools.

Build him up as a character first and then maybe Doom decides that he must find the most brilliant of minds to join him in "Finding Out what is out there, threatening the world." This as the first planned step of Doom gathering intelligent people who will act and not let a repeat of the Decimation happen again. (Even after things are presumably repaired in Endgame, Doom will KNOW.)

Always glad to see the Creeper. One of my faves going way back.

Bob Greenwade said...

Sorry, Anon; you're quite right. That slipped past me the first time.

("The Joker didn't kidnap Tigger! It's even worse -- Tigger kidnapped the Joker!")

Cary Comic said...

@Bob Greenwade: that's right! Robin wasn't among the Teen Titans ogling the other FF. Now, we know why. Good catch, dude!

Bob Greenwade said...

@Cary: Nightwing was among them, though. Conversely, I think that the Robin working with Thor was Tim Drake, and part of the situations they were dealing with had to do with the finding Bruce Wayne, who's been mysteriously missing since Spock arrived in the 21st century (#2442).

Hopefully, we'll soon enough know where he is... maybe the Riddler found an ally in Arcade, or something.

@BG: Batman's disappearance could also be related to the threat to reality alluded to by Superboy in STF #2440. Which makes me wonder: was it the renegade Saturnian, Fura, trying to change history (in the year 3000 AD) by removing the ancestor of that stalwart 31st century Earthman called "Brane?"

Cary Comic said...

More likely a robot double of Fura created by Kang The Conqueror. Remember that classic Silver Age Avengers tale featuring Time-spinner (alias "the Spidey-droid")?

Cary Comic said...

P.S. for Bob--- "I think the Robin working with Thor [is] Tim Drake."

So do I. But, I also think that "Frost Giant" is actually Tim's cousin Bobby! Given a dose of Pym Particles after being implanted with a Controller disc.* Thereby keeping the (implied) Saturn angle intact.

*One of the ones developed for Basil Sandhurst by Thanos of Titan.

Whoops. I initially misread that as Thanos of Tintin.

Cary Comic said...

@Anonymous above: Naw! That's who abducted Ambush Bag...I mean, "Bug!"

;-D

Brother Kellymatthew Barnes said...

"Come to me my Thanos!" - Tin Tin.

Anonymous said...

I don't think he can hear you, Brother. He "Rann" for it after losing out to Adam Strange in STF #2364.


OMG! I'm getting as bad as you and Carycomic! :-O

Cary Comic said...

Hey! I resent that. I don't deny it! But, I still resent it.

Speaking of Tintin: aren't he and Dick Tracy overdue for a sequel to their previous adventure? Which, iirc, was merely depicted as a back-up story! So, why not have them unite against a public menace who's truly worthy of them.

Starfox!


Hey! If Ka-Zar, Shana, and Zabu can successfully take on Thanos, why not a couple of trench coats with similar odds against Eros of Titan? Especially if they want to find out why he's suddenly so obsessed with...Moon Maid!

Brother Kellymatthew Barnes said...

Oops I meant Tintin.
