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.
