Chris Evans Says Fantastic Four 3 is Unlikely

69 Comments

Let’s face in, in the canon of comic book movies, the two “Fantastic Four” films belong somewhere between Albert Pyun’s “Captain America” and Roger Corman’s, well, “Fantastic Four”. In a word, they were absolutely horrid examples of storytelling, screenwriting, acting, and directing. Basically, the only reasons to ever watch those films was to wait for Jessica Alba’s costume to fall off; or, if you weren’t prone to such lecherous concerns, you just liked the Human Torch, as played by Chris Evans, who was bar none the best thing about those two films, but even he didn’t have very much to do in the second one. Now according to Chris Evans, the possibility of a “Fantastic Four 3″ seems highly unlikely. Or at least, he hasn’t heard anything about a third one yet, and if the studio wanted to do one, wouldn’t they have said so by now?

More:

“I’m pretty sure we won’t do [another] one,” insisted “Fantastic Four” star Chris Evans, who excelled in two films as the Human Torch. “I’m assuming that one is a closed book.”

What gives? In recent months, both Jessica Alba and Michael Chiklis have expressed a strong desire to come back for “FF3,” each one even going so far as to offer up a preferred storyline.

Sure, Franklin Richards or The Puppet Master would be cool. It’s not the storylines that worries Evans, he insists, it’s the fact that they have to offer it up the storylines at all, he told MTV News.

“After the first one was released we got wind of potential titles and plots [almost immediately], and I’ve heard nothing from anyone at Fox [yet],” he grumbled. “We had all planned on doing [another] one but if there were going to be a third I think a week after the second one was released we would have heard.”

It’s probably for the best. Evans has a thriving movie career, he doesn’t need to sully it further by being associated with yet another silly movie that posits the theory of Jessica Alba as a scientist. Wow, talk about a whopper, that one. Alba can barely say the word “scientist”, much less play one.

    In order to do a 3rd FF movie justice, Fox has to let Marvel Productions produce the film and just let Fox distribute it while Fox still retains the rights which I’m sure Fox doeant want to give back to Marvel especially looking at the way Fox likes to handle business. They have to recast but they don’t have to reboot. 1)First off aside from her bad & unconvincing acting,Jessica Alba was miscast and no amount of makeup could make her look authentically like Sue.Although Jessica is half Caucasion,her latin features are WAYYY too dominant to try and make her look “white”(I’m latino)It could probably have been done right but why go through all the trouble when you could just easily get a talented Caucasion actress like Charlize Theron or Naomi Watts to do it. 2)Ion Gruffud did a less than mediocre job as Reed.Guy Pierce would have been the perfect actor to play as Reed although not a very great movie,watch him in “The Time Machine”.3) Ben Grimm needs to be portrayed by a talented unknown actor who fits the look and personality of Ben all the way,hieght included added with a little cgi for depth and structure. 4)Victor Von Doom by far had the worst portrayal by far seeing that he is probably Marvel’s MOST feared and respected villian. Julain Mcmahon did not show an ounce of Doom’s “regalness” nor did he have the correct voice or “Latverian” accent that he should have had. Dr.Doom melds technology with sorcery and is the next possible in line to be The Sorceror Supreme. His portrayal by Julian Mcmahon was sickenly weak,incompetent,and did not inflict absolute fear. The Perfect actor would have been Jeromy Irons. Jeromy Irons persona is dead on as Doom especially the way he talks as “Scar” in “The Lion King”. I say continue with a part 3 not a reboot exposing them to more cosmic mutations which could explain why they all look different. Make Thing’s Skin like “Spiny Rock” temporarily through the film and let Reed make a changing device for him. This movie should focus on the introduction of Namor,Mole Creatures(not Mole Man),Super Skrulls and,lastly Thanos.Cast Tim Curry as Thanos.Watch his superb performance as “Darkness in “Legend”. Revamp Joaquin Pheonix’s career with a come back as Namor or cast Jonathan Rhys Myers as Namor if Joaquin won’t do it. I would like to see The Black Panther(Djmon Honsou) in FF3 also just as long as Fox doesn’t own the rights to him.Also show Galactus’s real image this time even if you have to revamp him “A little” and I emphasive “A little”.

      It is good to know that someone out there has a brain. You should consider writing a screenplay.

    FF3 should be based on “The Infinity Gauntlet”. And let Marvel Productions produce it with Fox’s permission and “NON-MEDALING”
