I have always seen the Fantastic Four as the children’s version of X-Men. The plots are less heavy, and not many issues are raised. Its just a fun ride with a little bit of cheese. So much infact, that Jessica Alba and Ioan Gruffudd have been nominated for Worst Screen Couple for 4: Rise of the Silver Surfer. Jessica also has a worst actress nomination. But I suppose the Razzies are a fun ride with a bit of cheese as well.
We have had the first two films, so what about the third? Its only natural for us to get another one. So what’s going on? IESB asked Jessica Alba that very question.
IESB: How long until we get Fantastic Four 3?
Jessica Alba: I have no idea. I know the writers strike and the impending actors strike has kind of put a wrench in everything production wise. That film takes a lot of prep, a good six months of prep and about six months to shoot. With the strike, I think, maybe it’s put on hold.
IESB: In the Fantastic Four comics your character becomes a mother. Would you like to see that in the film?
JA: Little Franklin? Yeah, I think that would be hilarious. He’s so powerful, I think that would be a really interesting dynamic a mother-child dynamic. She’s still a superhero but she’s super-protective and he’s wild, he can do anything and has no sense of what’s appropriate, that would be really fun.
