“Yeah, these movies are pretty dumb.”
Gotta love how the four actors who make up the Fantastic Four all treat a (non-) proposed Fantastic Four 3 sequel like a huge pile of lowbrow dishes in the sink. Actor Chris Evans, who plays Johnny Storm aka The Human Torch in the cornball Marvel franchise, follows up recent “whatever”-like comments from co-stars Michael Chiklis (The Thing) and Jessica Alba (The Invisible
Mind Woman) with a similar cricket-call to MTV…
“I’m pretty sure we won’t do [another] one,” insisted “Fantastic Four” star Chris Evans. “I’m assuming that one is a closed book. …It takes up a lot of time. It’s a big commitment. I’m happy with walking away.”
Evans adds that if Fox wanted to make another flick following the last one, the $130 million grossing Rise of the Silver Surfer, they probably would have called him last summer. You know, Swingers logic. Thought to be a springboard for a spin-off movie focusing on The Silver Surfer (played by Doug Jones, voiced by Laurence Fishburne), the sequel made less than its 2005 predecessor domestically, but neither film is publicly viewed as a loss after DVD sales et al. Of course, if a trifecta does occur, Alba said in January that she wants to go the preggo route and give birth to superpowered infant Little Franklin. About time a comic book movie challenged Knocked Up‘s money shot, eh? Up in the beautiful early spring sky, Galactus’s cloud doesn’t move.
Discuss: Okay, so who’s the guy with the Fantastic Four voodoo dolls? I owe you a beer.
