As you know Fox is currently in the process of prepping up for production on a new Fantastic Four movie, which will be a complete reboot of the franchise. According to an inside source, the studio is trying to get True Blood star Stephen Moyer to take on the role of Dr. Doom in the film. He's definitely not a bad choice to play the villain, unfortunately as of right now I could care less about seeing another Fantastic Four film. The first two movie's just completely killed any interest in another Fantastic Four movie.
It was also recently reported that Adrien Brody and Jonathan Rhys Meyers are in talks to play Reed Richards a.k.a. Mr. Fantastic. Obviously the studio is more interested in bringing Brody into the role, and why wouldn't they!? He's an Oscar winner. Alice Eve is also currently the frontrunner for the role of Susan Storm a.k.a. The Invisible Woman, and Kevin Pennington for Johnny Storm a.k.a. Human Torch.
It was also revealed to Comic Book Movie that the studiois planning to release Fantastic Four in the summer of 2012, so theres a chance it could go up against The Avengers, of course The Avengers will end up being the more successful film.
As far as the screenplay goes it's been revealed that the superhero team's origin story will be told during the opening credits of the film. There's still no director attached to the project but the studio has been holding meeting and it's down to three contenders, and we have no idea who they are... yet.
What do you all think about Moyer possibly taking on the role of Dr. Doom?
