Today’s edition of Entertainment Weekly will premiere a shot of Dr. Doom from the upcoming Fantastic Four film. This isn’t a publicity shot but an actual picture of the character as he appears in the film.
I hate to pile onto this film – the last time I heard buzz this bad the killer bees where heading into Texas to kill us all – but Doom looks like shit. He looks like a Halloween costume, or the kind of Dr. Doom they have come make personal appearances at malls and children’s hospitals. I keep wishing that something would show up that makes me reconsider how bad this film looks, but each new peek only reinforces it. Now, maybe this will all work out in the end and we will have a delightful and fun film. I wish for nothing more than that. Well, I also wish for a twelve inch weiner, but that’s not happening either.
