Hmm - I see they're moving beyond the "big names" here. I've heard of all those characters, but I don't know how many non-comics readers have (quick straw poll?). "The Punisher" had a film a while back, although I haven't seen it - it's not generally considered to be very good. "The Fantastic Four" also had a film made, but it was never released, so the only way to see that is to acquire a bootleg copy at a convention. However, I think there is scope for both films to be successful. As for "Ghost Rider" (motorbike rider who turns into a skeletal demon on fire), I've bought a few of those comics, and it's a sufficiently good visual to be effective. Although it doesn't bode too well that the comic got cancelled a few years ago - the sales were too bad to even print the final issue (I'm still hoping Marvel will stick it on their website one day). I'm rather dubious about a Namor film - he hasn't had his own comic in a long time (since 1995). An Elektra spinoff could work - she's supporting her own comic, although I haven't read it.
Casting wise, they're not the first names that spring to mind, but I think they could work.

A couple of relevant links...
Fantastic Four:
Ghost Rider:

Of course, you're welcome to borrow the relevant comics from me, if you fancy something less cerebral than Sandman :)
Actually, I'm curious about which Ghost Rider they'll use - John Blaze or Danny Ketch... (I'd favour the former)
