|Fox is rebooting this.|
For years, my favorite Marvel comic book property has been The Fantastic Four. It was better than Spiderman, better than The Avengers, better than Captain America (well, until Ed Brubaker started writing Cap). I fell in love with the team during Mark Waid's run on the comic and stuck with it through the years, even following the alternative dimension book Ultimate Fantastic Four.
There's some things to unpack in the casting that are obvious. First, it seems clear based on the age of the actors that they are following the Ultimate team (assuming they are following anything from the comics at all). Second, Sue and Johnny obviously will not be blood relatives (yes, Michael B. Jordan is black; everybody freak out). Finally, Trank and the studio decided to go with actors as opposed to, you know, Jessica Alba.
All of this is for the good. All of it.
