1. Fantastic Four (2005)
Before the film came out, the comic book community was hoping we could get an official big-screen adaptation of Marvel’s First Family. Well, one that was going even be released. As discussed previously the 1994 version was only made so the rights could be kept, not to make any kind of impact or even money. So to a lot of people, this is the first big-screen adaptation of The Fantastic Four.
Although there were some questionable choices in casting, it didn’t turn out that bad! Of course, there were issues with certain parts of the story.
Victor Von Doom being with them when the accident happened that caused them to become who they are, and Sue being Reed’s ex were major misses. It felt like it was tacked on to add a little bit more sexual tension between two people that have been married in the Marvel Universe since Fantastic Four Annual #3 which came out way back in 1965.
When it comes down to it, this is only number one because it didn’t have as many flaws as the other three. At this point, the comic book community deserves a good – scratch that – a GREAT Fantastic Four movie. One that showcases the adventures that the family goes on while trying to maintain some kind of grip on a normal life. A Fantastic Four movie we can all be proud of.
