You May Be Thinking... What 1994 Fantastic Four Movie ???
The first live action Fantastic Four Movie was never shown in theaters after it was produced in 1994 by Roger Corman.
Roger quickly finished the film as his rights to the FF were running out...
I met three of the four actors who portrayed the FF at the 1994 San Diego Comic Con. They were sincere in their portrayals of the FF and I really enjoyed meeting them and having my pic taken with them!
However, the movie wasn't to be released, and upon purchasing a bootleg video at a later comic con, I realized why.... It was really bad, terrible actually what had happened to my favorite comic book superheroes.
It wasn't until ten years later at the SDCC in 2004 that I saw the new actors who had just been signed to play in the new film have a program at the SDCC, and they were introduced to the con goers.
I thought the choice for Mr Fantastic, and the Thing were great. I thought the choice for the Invisible Woman was all wrong... she was too sexy to portray Sue Storm. And I couldn't figure out the actor that would portray the Torch.
The capper to the program was the choice of director.... and what he had directed before... oh no I thought, not another upcoming clunker movie of my FF !!!
Well I was wrong... the 2005 movie was a lot better than I expected, better than I hoped it could be.... and I came away a lot happier!!!
I looked forward to the second installment, 'The Rise of the Silver Surfer' for the Summer of 2007!
But I still thought Jessica Alba was too young and sexy for the Invisible Woman role !!
For those interested in Fantastic Four comics on which the movies are based on, we have several listed in our eBay Featured Store.
