I'd like to say it looks awesome, but honestly ... it looks corny. And the dialog is corny. Of course, we're talking about a Marvel Comics movie here, so corny dialog is kind of expected, but not to this level. Does it look fun? Sure, in some ways. I mean, a guy with a flaming skull riding around the city has some inherent element of fanboy cool to it; but probably not nearly enough to carry the film. I still hope to enjoy it, but I wouldn't wager on it. Also, I still hear Mortal Kombat's Scorpion screaming "Get over here!" every time I see that chain whipping around.
Hollywood North Report's message board has also turned up a few new set pics from the Vancouver filming of Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer. Follow the link you'll find three shots of the roof set on top of the Baxter Building. It's nothing mind blowing, but it's fun. Despite a somewhat underwhelming first flick, I have much higher hopes for FF2 than I do for Ghost Rider. Am I just setting myself up for another disappointment?
