Michael Chiklis talks to MTV about who is on his wishlist to be the villain in the next Fantastic Four movie:
“For selfish reasons, I would love to see Puppet Master happen, obviously,” he enthused, imagining the possibilities of a Ben Grimm-centered flick. “For those of you who know what I’m talking about, it would really tie in Alicia’s character and mine. It’s a great story line for the Thing.”
Is it ever. Able to control people using radioactive clay, the Puppet Master is a diabolical villain and occasional nemesis to the Fantastic Four … who just so happens to be the father of Thing’s blind girlfriend, Alicia Masters.
But, either way, Chiklis isn’t holding his breath, telling MTV News that he’s glad for the break from the blue spandex and is in no hurry to return.
“I’m not gonna call the guys like, ‘Hey, what are we doing?’ ” Chiklis said. “I’m kinda moving on and doing other stuff, which is great. [Another ‘Fantastic Four’ movie] is sort of on backburner mode for a while.”
