Fantastic Four Reboot: Meet Dr. Storm!

So by now everyone has heard of the controversial casting of  Michael. B Jordan as Johnny Storm in the Fantastic Four reboot. The controversy heated up when Susan Storm/Invisible Woman was cast as Kate Mara. Later rumors claimed that the team wouldn’t even be called the “Fantastic Four” in the first movie. Now prepare for fanboys to lose their minds as actor Reg E. Cathey has been cast as the father of Susan and Johnny.

Who is Reg. E. Cathey? Well he’s recently starred in The Wire, House of Cards and Banshee to name a few.

    I think it’s time to stop caring about whose cast as what because its obvious studios will lead stories into directions that are not cannon and do with classical characters whatever they see fit. I look forward to the movie and will be disgusted or amused with everyone else.. probably a little bit of both. Whose gonna be Ben Grimm, Wilmer Valderama?

    I’m not into race changes(unless it’s another universe/reality) and I doubt I ever will be.But on that note I count the movies as another universe/reality. So this might be ok.

    It’s rare that comic book movies are made for coming book fans anyhow. Personally I would like to see a FF movie done right and not remixed. The original case of the first run was a good look, just bad story lines. this remix here is for what reason, other than just because, or for shock value?
    To me this is a joke, but only time will tell If i’m right or not.

      I like to think they played a little game where they put up posters of each character and threw darts at them. The one with the most darts got the race change.
