    The problem is in the approach. We have seen the origin in 3 out of the 4 attempts. Only Rise of the Silver Surfer did we see a variation. And that was with a horrible cast from a first movie that screwed with the formula way too much.

    My suggestion is: Don't do an FF origin movie. Do a Doctor Doom movie or a Thing Movie - featuring the FF. When all else fails you must try something radically different.

We've never seen the team's origin in a film. What we've had is some film makers' idea of what that origin should be. THAT's the problem. It doesn't please the fans (And the general public don't care).

Yes, the Fantastic Four's origin in Fantastic Four #1 seems incredibly hokey by today's standards, but then, so did a lot of what Christopher Reeve did in Superman. Reeve absolutely sold it by delivering the lines straight. That's all you need to do with the FF - tell the origin as was (Or with minor changes) and play it straight. The fans will be happy, and the general public will accept it.
