Once upon a time I looked like this:
That was a while ago. I am ‘celebrating’ my birthday this week – it’s an unmentionable number so we’ll just move on and not discuss it.
I was already feeling old and then along comes the trailer for The Fantastic Four. The cast is young and young-looking, and it appears that the filmmakers are planning on pushing this as a Teenagers Save The World story.
The kid scientists use a teleportation device to go to another end of the universe; something goes wrong; they come back Stretchy, Fiery, Invisibly and, er, Thingy.
The voiceover sounds like it’s by Discount Morgan Freeman. They’ve gone for an Interstellar vibe in the trailer, which seems a bit ponderous considering it’s going to be a flick about youngsters taking on baddies with their superhero powers.
I already knew I wasn’t the demographic for this, but man, do I feel old.
Say what you want about how silly The Avengers is (and it is), but at least Iron Man is middle aged.
