Fox Has Big—Albeit Vague—Plans for 'Fantastic Four' in the Future


Fox has tried and failed three times now to get the Fantastic Four into a decent vehicle befitting their legendary status as Marvel's First Family, but they're not about to give up! Mere weeks after admitting how badly they fucked up with 2015's Fantastic Four, X-Producer Simon Kinberg is now saying that the Reed, Johnny, Ben, and Sue are still very much a part of what Fox has planned for the future.

As reported on by Collider (link below), Kinberg doubled down on his assessment of the problems with last year's Fantastic Four while speaking with Josh Horowitz on his Happy Sad Confused Podcast...

“I don’t think that there is, in any movie that doesn’t work, a single decision that is the reason that that movie doesn’t work. I think that there were many decisions we made along the way that led to a movie that people didn’t like and to a movie that I would do differently next time. I think the biggest takeaway for me [is that] the tone of the movie, while really interesting and ambitious, ran counter to the DNA of the source material. I think the source material of Fantastic Four is bright, optimistic, poppy in tone. There’s a sort of plucky spirit to those characters, and we made a darker, sort of body-horror kind of version of Fantastic Four, which again as I say it now sounds really interesting and cerebrally ambitious, but isn’t necessarily Fantastic Four.”

He then confirmed that Fox has no plans to let the rights relapse to Marvel...

“It’s a big part of the plan going forward. Like I say, the biggest lesson learned is that Fantastic Four is a great comic book that has its own tone and voice, and we need to let that lead us… I would love to continue making movies with that cast.”

Yeah, I bet you would. Please ditch Miles Teller though. That fucking guy needs to be exclusively in films where J.K. Simmons slaps the shit out of him.
