Out of curiosity, what exactly was wrong with the first FF movie? Characters were spot on, and the only major changes were really out of sheer necessity (illegal shuttle launch to beat the commies doesn't really work by the time the new millenium rolls around, Doom's origin folded in to the origin of the FF to save running time). I've constantly heard the movie slammed left, right, and center, and it's never made a lick of sense to me.Springer007 wrote:I hated the Fantastic Four and the Silver Surfer sequel movie. It just was horribly done and the writers deserve to be stabbed in the eye with a very hot french fry, then choked by a pretzel.
On topic, I can't really get too worked up about this news, given that Marvel's continuity has been left in tatters the last few years. Annihilation was good, but Civil War and Secret Invasion were out-and-out horrid. At this point, the only Marvel book I really read is Astonishing (and even that is only because of Ellis), which is sad given that I grew up reading Marvel comics religiously.
