Fantastic Four

My question remains "how many comic book movies can they make?!?", and the answer remains "one more."

I never really got into the whole comic-book-super-hero thing like many of my friends did. No big deal, it's just not my cup of tea. But I do have one question about the soon-to-be-released "Fantastic Four" movie:

The Invisible Woman will be played by Jessica Alba. Why bother casting such a pretty actress into a character no one will be able to see? Anybody could play the character, from Roseanne to Shaq...

or even nobody! Think of the cost savings on makeup and costume when nobody has to even show up for filming. Hey, Hollywood, next time you need an invisible character, CALL ME, I can not show up for half the cost.

Oh, you can be certain she's going to be visible most of the time: it's probably in her contract, and it costs a lot of time and money to make someone disappear convincingly on screeen.

Besides, as those of us who spent too much time reading the FF in school know, her uniform (made of "unstable molecules," the same stuff that gave the FF their powers) disappears right along with her, and it costs even more time and money to make someone disappear convincingly on screen and leave her clothing behind.
