Fantastic Four Sequel Worse Than The First?

silver surfer Fantastic Four Sequel Worse Than The First?The big news this week is supposedly that Laurence Fishburne may be doing the voice of Galactus, but I think that this tidbit from Ainitcoolnews is a lot more newsworthy: There was a screening of Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer a couple of days ago and the reaction was, to put it mildly, not good.

The specific quote that was sent to AICN was:

“[it was] sooo bad that they felt dirty and wanted to write letters of complaint.”

This is pretty much unverified, so it could be legit or it could be some uber-disgruntled hard core fanboy’s reaction. However, the fact that we have the same writers and the same director (Tim Story) on this one as we had on the first one does not bode well IMHO.

The first Fantastic Four movie was pretty weak, but I had hoped that maybe now that the origin story was out of the way they might hit their stride in this one.

I’ve got a bad feeling about this…

  1. To be honest, I never saw the first one. Why? Because it looked absolutely terrible, and had literally the worst casting decisions I’ve ever seen for a superhero movie. I mean, Chris Evans? Jessica Alba? Are you kidding me??

  2. Yeah, I *really* had to give the movie wide latitude as a total “popcorn flick” to get any enjoyment out of it at all. The casting was indeed way off… Mr. Fantastic came across as too much of a geek (in the comics he’s super-intelligent but not self-conscious) and the team members should have been at least 6-7 years older than Johnny Storm.

    The only one they got right was Ben Grimm.
