Four Rogues In Buckram

I haven’t been a great fan of the recent Fantastic Four movies. I thought Johnny was fine, and the Surfer was dead-on perfect; but Reed, Sue, and Victor were badly miscast; Reed and Sue had zero chemistry; Reed’s stretchiness never looked right; Victor had the wrong origin and lacked the original’s proto-Vaderesque gravitas and tragic grandeur; and Ben wore a clunky, overly small suit instead of being sensibly CGI.

The good news, then, is that the FF film franchise is being rebooted from scratch, with the generally excellent Iron Man reportedly serving as the model. (Conical hat tip to AICN.)

Fantastic Four

Given that there’s supposed to be a Sub-Mariner movie in the works, I wonder whether they’re planning a tie-in (since it was in the pages of Fantastic Four that the Atlantean prince had his first Silver Age appearance).


Forget that new Watchmen movie that’s coming out in theatres. This Saturday morning cartoon version is far more awesome:

Captain America: Who'd have suspected that all this was going on beneath the Western Badlands?  Falcon: A 'New America' growing inside the old.  The bills must be enormous.

Captain America and the Falcon are right – growing the new society within the shell of the old takes money! If you can, please support the Center for a Stateless Society’s fundraiser.
