Avi Arad on Fantastic Four & Dr. Doom

Empire Online talked to Marvel Studios’ Avi Arad about the Fantastic Four adaptation…

“It’s funny, high adventure,” he said, confirming rumours that that the Tim Story-directed movie will be primarily a comedy. “But you are going to tear up too. It’s a bittersweet comedy.”

But what of Dr. Doom who, as Marvel aficionados, is so evil that he might not transfer very well to a knockabout laughfest. “Dr. Doom is going to be amazing,” said Arad. So he won’t be comic relief, then? “No, serious. Human, and serious. It works!”

Thanks to ‘clevername’ for the alert.
