    Oh boy......looks as bad as the 80/90's version. This will definitely make FF poison, just like Ghost Rider.

    Im pretty excited for this film. I really enjoyed the directors first movie Chronicle. Third act kinda sucked but was it was hella fun to watch. Really grounded believable film.

    Sure as fuck beats this

    Problems with the Thing "pale" in comparisons to problems with Johnny Storm.

    And wasn't Sue Storm a big titty blonde?

    I rather a 3rd sequel to this.

    Least Marvel can buy back the FF from Fox on the cheap

    Sequel? Nah, first two sucked. More of a reboot from Fox. I think lets give this film a shot and then see if they should sell back the rights to Marvel.

    I didnt think Fox could of came back from Xmen 3, but First Class and DOFP were pretty freaking solid.

    The first two were merely OK. I enjoyed the first one more but the 2nd wasn't bad.

    This Thing looks constipated. A black Johnny Storm? I guess him and Sue are "adopted" siblings.

    Can they ruin this anymore?

    I don't understand why they couldn't have had the black guy play the thing. For Pete's sake, human torch is invisible woman's biological brother.. Who was a blond Nordic looking woman. Why did they do this? Why do they always change races of characters just for the sake of doing it? It isn't a racial thing if it follows what has been written for 50 years in full color. I really don't understand.

    Why can't they just create new superheroes etc. that are black or whatever? If the character was created white, leave it white. Others, like green lantern, can be whatever race because the nature of the character is meant to change. Otherwise, it just looks like uninspired pandering and I hope it fails. I have many thoughts on the subject. Mostly about tired, hackneyed reboots/remakes. Hate when a band 'writes' an acoustic version of their most popular song too. I like you because you created that song that way. Or having the audience sing the chorus. I like the harmonies you guys wrote and sing, I didn't pay for this concert to hear drunken audience members yell it off key. Rant over.

    It's not really just for the sake of doing it. They fucking get off on it. White progressives give themselves a nice pat on the back and a big smile to the mirror when they diversify something. The argument will be that 50 years ago all of these characters had to be white due to racism and therefore this is righting a wrong. Of course like @A. Genius said, they could create new superheroes. But that would take real work. It's much easier to fuck with someone else's creation.

    Of course if you had true creativity and work ethic maybe you could create the next Spawn and become rich.

    Sad, but I think the Thing is the best thing about the poster. A black human torch? Susan Storm looks like a high school senior that listens to way too much indie rock. And Reed Richards I think of as looking a bit older and more mature.

    I still think the best Fantastic Four I've seen on film is The Incredibles. This gives me no hope of that changing anytime soon.

    I don't even care about Marvel getting back the film rights to the F4. I'd be happy if they just got the Silver Surfer and Dr. Doom.

    The Marvel movies are missing out on those two guys, especially Dr. Doom, who is arguably their top villain.

    They seem to have forgotten that the human torch was played by the current Captain America who happens to be played by a white dude
