It's okay! This article doesn't focus on those horrible movies you might have seen about the dude on fire, the stretchy guy, and the invisible chick! There may have been a rock guy in there too. Whatever. This article is not about them! Marvel Studios, realizing how ridiculously awful their FF franchise was, decided it was time to start over. A Fantastic Four movie is currently in pre-production, and may have found a captain for their ship.
|Josh Trank to direct Fantastic Four reboot|
Josh Trank is most well known for his "found-film" superhero adventure, Chronicle. Although Chronicle didn't rake in the big bucks, it was a critical success, currently ranking a solid 85% on rottentomatoes. This shows that Josh Trank has some serious skills when it comes to filmmaking, and he's even been in talks to do a standalone Venom movie. Venom as in the symbiote from Spiderman. I say please wait until they bring Venom into the Garfield-Webb-saga, and then go nuts within the same continuity. After seeing a really good, original, found-film superhero movie, I believe this man can do anything well.

to see what movie is using our idea this time....
Here's my beef. Apparently the current script comes straight out of the comics. In a certain Daredevil comics story arc, the Kingpin learns Daredevil's identity, and slowly goes about destroying his life. This sounds WAY too much like a sequel to the Daredevil movie with Affleck. Unless this is in some way a reboot AND a continuation (a la The Incredible Hulk), I'm a little worried about how this will turn out. Especially with a certain casting rumor pointing at a certain Twilight hunk playing the role of Matt Murdock.
