How bad do you think they’ll screw this up?


Bad miscasting to add diversity?
Awful scripts?
Hiring newbie directors with no qualifications?
All of the above?

We’ve had four awful FF films since 1994. I have no faith this won’t be just as bad based on the low quality MCU movies after Endgame.

I have little faith in Disney picking a good cast for this.

I'm gonna go with not as bad as what we've gotten prior, even if it will be bad (coz it probably will be bad). Adam Driver as Reed gives me some hope that I'll at least enjoy the film, whether it sucks or not overall.

I don't know how good the cast will be, but I'll probably fall over if they actually cast four white leads as the y'know, canonically white Fantastic Four.

ALL THE WAY. They have lost their way, its gonna be horrible.

nah , none of that is as big a problem as "Its Yet Another Super Hero Film" , so it'll be shit by default.

Starting off with miscasting doesn’t help any.

Oh they'll find a way.

I'm going to guess Alicia will be transgendered and Johnny will be gay and when he says flame on, he means it.

Gotta check those boxes.

I’m thinking Sue will be Hispanic again or black and Ben will be Asian, Indian or Black.

It's probably beyond those behind the movie but they could just model the Thing after Kirby and focus on his real life background instead of making something up to replace what's been in the comics.

I re-watched the original not to be seen movie from years ago and it's not bad - I recommend it to anyone who likes the FF.

I THINK IT IS GOING TO BE AWESOME.
