Doomed to Failure?

The Invisible WomanOk, movies with the focus on a team of heroes are rather difficult to pull off. Examples of this are The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen and the X-Men movies. Both were really flawed due to their execution. After seeing Batman Begins, I really began to fear for the upcoming Fantastic Four movie. The bar for comic-themed feature films has been lifted rather high now. I fear this movie is, pardon the pun, doomed to failure. On a (slightly) positive note, they seem to have gotten the part of the Human Torch dead on from what I've seen in trailers. They also have Jessica Alba in skin-tight latex, which is also a plus. Now, if only they could have Dr. Doom, wait, before I start, Dr. Doom is the best villian ever conceived. Hell, Darth Vader was modeled after him. If the movie version would only end every sentence with, "There is only Doom," then there will be hope for this movie.
"Victor, you always thought you were a god."
Movie of the Moment: Fantastic Four

Action + Jessica Alba + Sexist Hotshot [literally] + Comics theme = Good movie at worst.

It might not be Batman Begins, which in my mind was as close to perfect a Batman as you can get, but it should be a damn good movie because Johnny Storm is Jack on the silver screen.
