Ready to shake your head in amazement at what Fox is doing with Fantastic Four? Take the jump to see what Toby Kebbel, who plays Doom in the new movie has to say about the character.

Seriously? It’s no wonder Marvel is shutting down the comic with Fantastic Fourever. I try to keep a positive look on something I know little about, but now that I know a little about this movie, I’m out. No Thanks. Sorry Fox, probably time to give the rights back to The House of Ideas and let the House of Mouse crank out something that is going to inspire and move audiences to go to the movie theater.

    At first I sighed and shook my head, but then I thought “von Doom” is kind of a dumb surname. So I kind of don’t mind the twist of “It’s my screen name, you guys!” On the other hand, to justify it they made Doom a nerdy hacker/blogger trope and… *facepalm*

    I love the Fantastic Four. I mean, I really love the Fantastic Four. I feel like this movie is pushing me toward an era where I’m going to be left behind. I try really hard not to talk about how disappointed I am about some of the annoucements I have read or some of the interviews some of the actors have given because it is often immediately dismissed and I am called some choice words. However, the more and more info that comes out the more and more it seems like fox is just kind of giving Marvel the finger and Marvel is responding in kind by canceling books (temporarily I know) and not creating toys. I’m not opposed to changes in story or character design but a lot of the info that is coming out sounds awful and too far off base (at least for me). It also seems like every time someone does press for the film they have to follow up by saying how good it is, like the constantly need to reassure everyone. It just feels like its another FF movie thrown together solely to hold a license. Yes, I will see the movie and I intend to give it a fair chance if that is possible at this point, but if my favorite team’s book is getting canceled then I would like a representation of them that speaks to me and can hold me over until the book starts again. This is the team that created the marvel universe. I think it demands a little more respect then it has received lately and by that I mean from movies studios, from Marvel, and from readers. I think it deserves a Marvel Studios release. I think a Thing v Hulk fight would be far more enjoyable than a Cap v Iron Man with Spidey in the middle and I think it is insane to think that we will see any Inifinty Gauntlet story line before we see Ben and Bruce throw down.

    Sorry for my little rant. I try to keep things to two sentences but I’m pretty passionate about my FF stuff.

      No need to apologize. Your right, Marvel’s first family deserves the respect that they have earned for 60+ years of history. Real fans & so far Marvel itself know this to be true.
