'Fantastic Four' Casting, 'Firebreather' News, And 'Doctor Who' Complaints In Today's Twitter Report

Fantastic Four rebootWhether or not "True Blood" actor Stephen Moyer is in the running for Doctor Doom in a Fantastic Four movie reboot, Gail Simone has strong feelings about how Sue Storm should be cast, and she tweeted her hopes regarding the part (and Jessica Alba) yesterday.

Meanwhile, a "Firebreather" peek sneaked out at San Diego this summer, but further news may be on the way, judging from a Phil Hester post Monday. Make your own assessments after the jump, where you'll find out who in the comic book industry is unimpressed by "Doctor Who," what writing a TV pitch feels like for Warren Ellis, and what it looks like when artist Ming Doyle sketches Emma Frost.
