Fantastic Four is coming August 7, to let us all down. I’ve been over this but at Comic Con they debuted a new Fantastic Four trailer. It’s now been released to U.S. general public types.
This does not made me feel any better.
There were early reports that Dr. Doom – who at his best rivals Apocalypse in terms of being awesome – was a blogger, in an attempt to make the movie relatable to today’s kids. First, if that was true: fuck kids. If they can’t understand power hungry jealous dude then they’re fucking useless. Second, it doesn’t look like that’s the case. My guess is still that Doom is part of the team that gets sent to a different dimension where they all gain powers.
Or Doom might be a being from that dimension. Either way it isn’t making this any better. Yes, I’ll see it. No, that isn’t evidence of jack shit. I saw Green Lantern in the theaters.
You want good Fantastic Four, read this shit below, by Jonathan Hickman. Yes, we pimp things a bit from Amazon but sometimes it’s random so I don’t control that but I usually try to purposely find things I think are good. This. Is. Good. It might be the best FF stories ever, some of the better comic writing out there in general, and it ties in directly with Marvel’s current big event, Secret Wars – where DR. DOOM IS THE BEST HE HAS EVER BEEN AND EVER WILL BE.
This Fantastic Four, directed by Josh Trank – who can’t keep his shit together long enough to direct A STAR WARS MOVIE, WHICH COULD DEFINE HIS CAREER FOREVER – will suck. The cast, except Mara because she’s done other things (or was that her sister?), will see their careers anchored forever.
