Rebooted Fantastic Four trailer

Here it is:

Uh, no thanks. I'll pass. Seriously -- what possibly would entice you to see this? I see absolutely nothing new, other than Johnny Storm being a black guy. Oh, but I'll admit that the new look of the Thing looks pretty cool.

Remember some of this flick's details: Dr. Doom is a nasty blogger, the quartet looks like teenagers, and they're "not really supposed to be superheroes" (or something).

Give me Ioan Gruffudd any day. He's doing a great job with Forever.

I'm passing on this as well. They should've let the rights revert back to Marvel.

Wow that looks boring. On another note that I know you like. Here is a part of an article in the news journal on a robbery in Maryland - Police conducted a K-9 search of the area, but the suspect was not found. He was described as white man, in his late teens to early 20s, wearing dark clothing and gloves.

This looks incredibly boring. I still vividly remember the first trailers for movies like the first Spider-Man and X-Men: exciting clips and rousing music. The first minute of this trailer was more like a PSA for some technology firm.

Incidentally, I laughed at that "From the studio that brought you X-Men: Days of Future Past" credit.

The far left defenders are out and they are also trying to defend other actions. Let me ask would Marz say the same if a black character was played by a white person?

I guess people are not allowed to have an opinion again if it does not agree with him...the guy must think he is something special.
