If You Hated The New Fantastic Four Movie, Cheer Up, Because There's Always This Fantastic Four That Features Actor Bill Murray


Bill Murray Fantastic Four, Fantastic Four radio drama, Stan Lee Fantastic Four

This is for everyone who hated, loathed, disliked, despised, or even down-right just couldn't stand the latest incarnation of the Fantastic Four to come to the big screen in 2015.  Cheer up, because as Fantastic Four fans you still have this:  The 1975 Fantastic Four radio drama.  The what?

Now, while that may not read as exciting necessarily, what will make it exciting is the fact that is stars a young and up-and-coming comedic genius Bill Murray in the role of Johnny Storm / Human Torch--and he's totally amazing in it.

This variation on the Fantastic Four, while, again being a radio drama created in ten installments in 1975, is also narrated by none other that Mr. Stan Lee, creator of the Fantastic Four.

The story goes:   In 1975, a couple producers pitched the idea of an Fantastic Four radio series to Stan Lee.    How Bill Murray got involved in the project--we'll never know perhaps, but damn--Murray is great in the ten-installment series.    You can listen to most of the series on YouTube or you can download all ten parts for free over here.
