Fantastic Four Faces Backlash

One of the biggest complaints is that Galactus’ herald, the Silver Surfer, will be portrayed by a woman in the film. While there have been other female heralds in the comics, some fans are unhappy about the change, claiming that it is “pandering” to a feminist audience.

Another issue that fans have raised is the fact that the film is reportedly going to feature a more diverse cast than previous Marvel films. Some fans have argued that this is being done at the expense of the film’s quality, and that Marvel is simply trying to be politically correct.

Of course, there are also many fans who are excited about the upcoming Fantastic Four film, and who are supportive of the studio’s decision to make the film more inclusive. They argue that the diversity of the cast will make the film more relatable to a wider audience, and that the gender swap of the Silver Surfer is a refreshing and innovative take on the character.

So, what’s the deal? Is Marvel really being too “woke” with its upcoming Fantastic Four film? Or is this just a case of a few loudmouth fans complaining about change?

Well, it’s important to remember that Marvel is a business first and foremost. They want to make films that will appeal to as wide an audience as possible. And in today’s world, that means making films that are inclusive and representative of the real world.

So, while it’s true that Marvel is making some changes to the Fantastic Four mythos with its upcoming reboot, it’s important to remember that they’re doing it for a reason. They want to make a film that everyone can enjoy, regardless of their race, gender, or sexual orientation.

And that’s ultimately a good thing.
