    Wonder where they're going to find a 50-foot tall actor to play Galactus.

      Cool. That'll give Doom time to set up his empire and return in the third film.
      Recently, there was a reckoning. It occurred on November 4, 2014 across the United States. Voters, recognizing the failures of the current leadership and fearing their unchecked abuses of power, elected another party as the new majority. This is a first step toward preventing more damage and undoing some of the damage already done. Hopefully, this is as much as will be required.

        Ummm- here's a more current release from the same site: http://www.comicbookmovie.com/news/articles/2579.asp

        Maybe, they can't find an actor to play a fifty foot tall Galactus .

          They could be making Fantastic Four 2 and 3 in one go.

            Unless done right, multiple villains in one film can really suck. See the 90's Batman movies. For an example of it being done right, see Batman Begins.

            EDIT: In the end, it doesn't really matter. I just want to see Alba in a tight outfit again. Maybe they'll put her in THIS outfit this time around:

              Villain for movie 2 should be Mole Man. If there's any question about how to pull that off, just read Millar's take on the character in Ultimate Fantastic Four.

              If there is a movie 3, maybe have Doom return, or possibly do a version of the Frightful Four. Or maybe if you want to be more sci-fi, do a Negative Zone flick and have the main villain be Annihilus or Blastarr.

                I was watching Justice League Unlimited the other night. In the episode, a cabal of Flash's enemies (who, in my opinion, are among the lamest ever) were out to get revenge on the speedy hero.

                  Overall: FF movie was decent. They picked the right actor to potray The Thing; they got the character right. IMO, biggest disappointment was the characterization of Doom. I don't mind the tweaking of a character (example: Spider-Man's organic web-shooters, anyone?). But Doom is a character, I'll admit, that is hard to translate for the big screen. He talks in the third person; it works in comics, comes off cheesy in movies.

                  Remember, Doom bested the omnipotent Beyonder in Marvel Superheroes Secret War. Galactus tried and failed. Doom thinks he's better than everyone else on the planet, literally. He's arrogant to the nth degree.

I will work to elevate you, just enough to bring you down. Why can't we drink forever? I just want to start this over!" TOOL

                    Oh yay, The Secret Wars aka " Shooter's Folly".....when Shooter messed w/continuity in a big way and became known as Marvel's greatest mistake amongst die-hard fans despite sales . Lets not forget that the whole thing turned out to be held in a pocket dimension of Beyonder's making and contained mere REPLICAS of the true M-Universe.........so, in essence: the Beyonder wasn't truly omnipotent and Doom never really beat the true Galactus.

                    I really don't understand why TPTB don't start these comic movies in quality animated form @ lesser costs.......thereby, garnering some interest and $....before- making these kinds of productions. But..maybe, they don't need to. Just a thought.

                      You have to read the Flash comics, especially from the last five years or so. Flash's Rogues gallery is actually one of the best in all of comics. Seriously.

                      BTW, Jim Shooter had his flaws, but he's a lot better than some people give him credit for.

                        I can't speak for his character because I've never met the man. Years ago (1 or 2), I read a Jim Shooter online interview. Shooter's bosses told him to write a story that, somehow, involved all major superheroes and supervillains; this was to support advertising for a toy line.

                        He wrote some good stories I enjoyed when I was a kid.

                        BTW, "die-hard fans" can complain and moan -- it's their specialty. Secret Wars was a top seller, and it's considered the FIRST event/crossover comic, ever. Nothing like it before was ever attempted. Whine and complain about "destroying the character" all you want, Man in the Middle, but the mini was ground breaking. More people enjoyed the story than dislike it. Evidence? Marvel published a trade of the series.

                        For the record: Doom never defeated Galactus; honestly, that would be near impossible. Galactus was consuming the energy from the amalgam earth; Doom diverted the power while Galactus was waiting for the energy transfer/consummation. In essence, Galactus was tricked/fooled, not defeated.

                          I quit reading superhero comics in 2000. Got tired of the continuity. But yes, Flash did have some cool enemies in recent times.

                            Which were you into, DC or Marvel or both? Because now, and the last year or two especially, is a great time to get back into DC comics, they've had some great stuff. Marvel, not so much, although there is some good stuff to be found there as well. I can probably give some recommendations if you want, just let me know what you're into.

                              I read both. I pretty much only bought all Batman (and related) titles, Hitman, Punisher, Daredevil, JLA and the occasional random title here and there.
