In keeping with the current trend of upsetting fanboys, it seems that Josh Trank‘s Fantastic Four reboot will also be turning some classic characters on their ear.
First, the good news. Emmy Rossum is now in the mix to play Sue Storm. As of right now, it’s between her, Margot Robbie and Kate Mara. All fine choices. It’s just a shame they’ll spend a third of the movie invisible.
Now, the news that will cause asthma attacks. THR also reports that Dr. Doom will once again return as the villain. However, this time the filmmakers are not opposed to switching it up by having Dr. Doom played by a woman who has boobs and everything. I don’t want to come off as sexist by disliking this so I’ll caution that I’m only reacting from a pragmatic place. But, I’m sorry, this makes no sense. Can women even BE doctors?
Whichever gender they decide upon, it’s said that the studio is looking for a big name. Thus, the stage is set for a major Renee Zellweger comeback.
