    Sorry sarah got cut off there… I was just finishing off with speculation as to whether yo7 actually know WHY the other ff films were lame… have you ever read a comic?

  3. It’s about time they do a rewrite of fantastic 4! The second one was a disaster. Collosis is a god that eats planets. Not some big storm cloud! Then the Silver Surfer loses his board & powers?? COME ON!! My husband is bigger than the idiot that played Thing. There are plenty of HUGE bodybuilder type men out there that would be better suited to play HUGE MUSCULAR CHARACTERS! !
