    Recently, the ‘Fantastic Four‘ announced that they are looking for a comedian to be the voice of H.E.R.B.I.E. Every comic reader is well aware of the importance of H.E.R.B.I.E., the beloved robot from the ‘Fantastic Four’ comics, initially created to replace Human Torch. But in this live-action, the H.E.R.B.I.E. will finally make its debut. 

    Ricky Gervais immediately replied to the tweet saying, “Can I swear?”. The comedian hinted at his willingness to join the franchise. And if this happens to be true, ‘Fantastic Four’ will mark Gervais’ debut in the franchise, also making it one of the biggest projects of the comedian’s career. However as excited as the actor seemed to be to join the project, the fans did not reciprocate the same feelings.
