The Fantastic Four already has its Fantastic Four. It also has a Doctor Doom. And once those five names were announced, the world said, “Well, neat,” and promptly moved on to other things. Once we have the science-minded super family and their arch-nemesis, what else is there to care about? Mole Man. We should care about Mole Man. Because according to The Hollywood Reporter, Tim Blake Nelson is in talks to join The Fantastic Four as “Harvey Elder, an eccentric and socially awkward scientist” who is also the guy who eventually burrows underground, enslaves a race of mole people and christens himself Mole Man, hellbent on destroying the surface world that shunned him for being extremely short and also kind of a jerk. Now to harsh the buzz brought about by the words “Mole” and “Man. According to The Hollywood Reporter’s anonymous sources, The Fantastic Four won’t have any Mole Man. Just Elder, being wacky and eccentric and setting himself up as a future villain, presumably for The Fantastic Four 2 and its June 14, 2017, release date.
