ComicBookMovie.com has additional inside info about Fox's interests in the casting of villain Doctor Doom and choice of director. The lead candidate for the former is True Blood star Stephen Moyer, who if signed could then have more in common with his newly wedded bride (X-Men's Anna Paquin), than just starring opposite her in the popular vampire series. Three directors have been reportedly shortlisted as potential helmers of the reboot, Joe Carnahan (The A-Team), David Yates (Harry Potter) and James McTeigue (V for Vendetta). All are perfectly capable of making a comic book movie, though their talent does vary.
If you have a preference, now is the best time to make it known, since the only thing spreading rumors like these is good for is to provide feedback for the studios, which definitely pay attention to the online fan chatter. Here are my thoughts on the Thing casting: Willis has a better look for the quick glimpses of the human Grimm, but Sutherland's voice is a lot more fitting for the voice work, given that The Thing's speech should sound rather gruff. Willis' voice would be more distracting, especially since we'll keep thinking the character sounds like the baby from Look Who's Talking. Sutherland, on the other hand, did the perfect Thing voice as the general in Monsters vs. Aliens. He'd definitely sound a lot better shouting, "it's clobberin' time!"
Who do you think is better for The Thing? And which director would you prefer (I say Carnahan)? And Moyer, good or bad for Victor Von Doom?
