Black Panther and Captain Marvel both proved you don't need to flip anybody, were monster hits. As was Snipe's Blade, which I personally consider the start of the MCU even it it's not on paper.

Give them a chance and they won't disappoint. There is no need to leverage off other characters to portray better all of humanity.

Flipping means we are cheated of those characters getting their chance.
It's arguable that flipping actually accomplishes the opposite of it's intent.
Right on point. The characters that made us all love Marvel growing up were of both genders and many different races. Make those movies and people will watch them. Then there is no need for swapping.

I would like to see a MCU version of Doom and see how the FF intertwined with the other franchises.

Having these Goliath villains like Doom and Magneto aligned in the same cinematic universe is a trip.

LGuessing we see more news on it next year at SDCC. I really really really hope they cast it true to comics.

This is GREAT news! I've been jonesing for a GOOD FF movie forever. I hope Marvel/Disney does the characters justice.

As far as the Thing goes, I'm sure he'll be CGI. Hopefully a lot better realized than the last version we got. Ugh!

I really hope Marvel does this property right, they have a big task after Fox tarnished the name of fantastic four (I didnt hate FF1&2, but the last attempt was vomit inducing)

I think FF will be done just fine. They will leave the core group as they were/are in the comics. Surfer could be cast with any actor and perhaps that is where Disney will diversify the cast. Namor could be Polynesian, Asian, or Hispanic and nobody would bat an eye.

Regardless of casting, as long as Sue is done justice as the kickass character she is, I will have little issue. Doom is high up to have to be done correctly too.

Doom is my favorite MCU villain. I can't wait for this.

Agreed on both counts. They were the worst parts about FF1 & 2. Jessica Alba wasn't very good as Sue and the guy playing Doom just came off as a spoiled rich guy, rather than a diabolical genius dictator.



There was nothing good about Fant-4-stic 4.

I always thought Charlize Theron would be a great Sue, she's got that unmistakable presence that Sue always had in the comics
