I can't see Kate Mara. Get it? Because she's Sue Storm, aka The Invisible Woman in the next FANTASTIC FOUR movie? Oh yeah, that's the funny. Anyway, there's Kate doing her sexy spread in Esquire Mexico magazine, doing everything she can to f*ck up her beautiful red hair, to my complete irritation. Some weird correlations happening today. First off, we have two Sue Storms back to back. First Jessica Alba, now Kate. Jessica is currently vacationing in Mexico and Kate is doing a magazine spread in Mexico. This means Jessica could conceivably pick up Kate's Mexican Esquire and read about how Kate has taken over her role. Weird.
I'm still not sure about the seeming adolescent slant they've taken with the casting for this new iteration of FF. I know why they're doing it. Clearly the point is to appeal to a youthful audience. Still, they're on the verge of doing some sort of teen version of a FF movie, rather than an authentic attempt at bringing the comic to the screen. The only one who makes any sense is Kate. She's young enough to play the role convincingly, without looking like she carries around a tube of Clearasil and does her homework in between shots. It was never my comic anyway, so I don't have a lot of stake in it. If it turns out to be yet another shitty comic reboot, that's just more fuel for the fanboys and their burning effigies.
