A few shows back on the podcast WTF with Marc Maron, Nick Offerman and Megan Mullally popped by to talk about Parks & Recreation, the theater and Hollywood and superhero movies. And during this hour long interview, Offerman mentioned he'd wanted to play Ben Grimm from Fantastic Four. And how his dreams were cruelly crushed by Michael Chiklis.
But maybe Offerman's time has come? Last we heard, the studios were talking about a Fantastic Four reboot. Chronicle director Josh Trank was rumored to be attached, but instead he's adapting the comic The Red Star). At the very least the rumors may mean there's some interest in bringing Thing back to the big screen — which, in turn, means there's a small chance for a Ron Swanson superhero movie!
