Feige cautiously turned to the Namedrop when CNET sister site Comicbook.com asked him about Mr. Fantastic, Invisible Woman, Human Torch, and the thing that came to the MCU. "That means we have them back and work towards that," said Feige.
Fig also made his passion for the characters in a Variety interview clear but noted that his team was not watching Almost a movie or a story. "I am very excited about these characters and bringing Marvel's first family to the platform and achieving the level they deserve," he said, subtly acknowledging that the previous Fantastic Four films were all crazy.
So we do not know who I'll be there when it comes out or just about everything – we'll update this page if that changes. Take a look at who the Fantastic Four are and go through their (ugh) movie history.
The intro for the 90s cartoon expediently outlines the origins and strengths of the characters in a super catchy way.
You're welcome. Now that you are knocking on your feet, we will discuss the basics. The team first appeared in 1961 in Fantastic Four no. 1 on, by the late comic legendsand . This basically sparked off the Marvel Comics universe, as the pair soon founded the Avengers and the X-Men together.
In the first issue, Reed Richards, Sue Storm, Johnny Storm and Ben Grimm fly into space with a test rocket. They are bombarded with cosmic radiation (which is a real thing
- Reed can stretch his body into just about any shape and is codenamed Mr. Fantastic. He is also very smart.
- Sue can become invisible and create powerful force fields. She first appears as an Invisible Girl, but later changes her name to Invisible Woman. She is Reed's fiancee.
- Johnny can set his body on fire, control fire and fly. Goes with the human torch. He is Sue's brother and his slogan is "Flame on!".
- Ben turns into a rock monster and takes on the name with superior strength and stamina. He is very angry at first, but over time he has calmed down. Glorious slogan: "It's time to attack!" He is quite grand .
They fight the mole in this first installment, but soon attract a rogue gallery to which(who joined the MCU in Captain Marvel), angry Namor, the submarine Sailors, the planet-eaters Galactus and his herald, the Silver Surfer, Kree, Ruck Ronan, the prosecutor and ruler of the Negative Zone, Annihilus. But a villain is above them all.
Doctor Doom, also known as Victor Von Doom, was Stan Lee's favorite villain because he is the ruler of his native Latveria. When he first appeared in Fantastic Four no. 5, he was Reed's college rival, ignoring his advice on a mistake in a machine he was working on. The resulting explosion has messed up Doom's face, and he has made it his mission to wear a signature mask to hide his disfigurement.
Like Reed, Doom is a super smart scientist. Along with his mask, he forged a progressive armor that fills a gap that is still open after Tony Stark's fate in Avengers: Endgame (19459005). And he has a bunch of robot doppelgangers called doombots who can stand the fall in his place when the heroes defeat him.
Doom was also featured as Iron Man in Marvel's infamous Iron Man comic series in 2016, but has since returned to his villainous ways of behaving.
Apart from his scientific abilities, Doom is a powerful sorcerer with whom hetoo. In the comics, he achieved both in 1985 and 2015, the ultimate power in the Secret Wars storylines. After he is one of the few villains worthy to defeat the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe. In the year 2017, Legion Creator Noah Hawley stated he was working on but it is likely that the plan was postponed or changed when Disney bought Fox. Unfortunately, Doom and the Fantastic Four have not had the best cinematic treatment yet.
The first attempt to bring the characters to the screen took place in 1994 in The Fantastic Four, which featured B-movie legend Roger Corman. This was an original story for the characters, but was never released – it's a bit like theof Marvel films – but there are conflicting stories about why. If you're curious, it's on YouTube and not so bad.
The team's first real movie outing took place in 2005 in Fantastic Four, directed by Tim Story, with the futurebeing held by Johnny. Jessica Alba played Sue, Ioan Gruffudd was Reed and Michael Chiklis portrayed Ben. Doom was played by Julian McMahon and this origin story was anything but good. It appeared in the same year as and Fantastic Four seemed to be a throwback to more silly superhero films.
That did not stop him from getting a sequel in 2007, Rise of the Silver Surfer This movie featured the extremely cool Silver Surfer (played by Doug Jones and voiced by Laurence Fishburne), but he still was not very good. It is also notorious for portraying Galactus as a cosmic storm rather than its traditional comic form.
The franchise was restarted in 2015 under the direction of director Josh Trank. This movie had a pretty good cast – Miles Teller as Reed, Kate Mara as Sue, Michael B. Jordan as Johnny, Jamie Bell as Ben and Toby Kebbell as Doom – but it turned out to be a joyless mess. Since then, Trank said he has no interest in directing Marvel or DC films.
The Incredibles andare the closet where you can watch great Fantastic Four movies.
Let's hope that Marvel Studios' attempt, whenever we see it, finally gives the Fantastic Four the cinematic performance they deserve. In fig we trust.
Released on July 26 and updated as news comes out of the Fantastic Four.
