Josh Trank’s Fantastic Four reboot was a disaster. The director took to Twitter on the day of release to publicly disown the movie (which had been plagued by troubling rumours since day one), and a number of reports followed, revealing the shocking and bizarre behaviour of the filmmaker on set.
Throw in reports that Fox made his life pretty difficult with budget cuts and unreasonable sounding demands, and it’s ultimately far from a surprise that the film, which stars Miles Teller, Kate Mara, Michael B. Jordan, and Jamie Bell, was a huge critical and commercial flop upon release.

As a result of that, the fate of the Fantastic Four franchise is unknown. As hard as it is to imagine Fox forging ahead with the sequel – which still holds a 2017 release date – stranger things have happened, and there’s every chance the studio will »

Back in October, Marvel held a massive press event where the studio unveiled its entire Phase Three lineup. For fans who have only followed the Marvel Cinematic Universe movies, and not the comics they're based on, it may have been the first time they ever heard of the comic book characters known as the Inhumans. The studio started integrating these characters into Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. last season, but we still have several years left until the Inhumans' big screen debut on July 12, 2019. Today we have a new report from Blastr, which reveals that the Inhumans will start eliminating the X-Men mutants in the comics.
Back in June, Marvel announced their All-New, All Different initiative, which will reboot every one of their comic book titles. This reboot will happen after Marvel wraps up its massive Secret Wars story line. Today, Marvel revealed preview panels from Extraordinary X-Men #1, which reveals that the Terrigen Mists, »
Despite a critical drubbing and less than stellar box office returns, a Fantastic Four sequel might still be happening - but potentially with a different cast.
The film's writer-producer Simon Kinberg revealed to MTV that he is currently trying to "figure out" how to make a follow-up.
Why The Incredibles 2 will be the Fantastic Four film you've always wanted
"I'm really focused on the next one," Kinberg said, adding that he was disappointed by the reception the film received from comic book fans.
"I was most disappointed that fans didn't like it," he said. "I care more about them than I do anyone else. But I haven't done a full deep dive on it. Do I think it was unfairly treated? I don't know."

Last week, we learned that Josh Tran's Fantastic Four has been dubbed the second biggest flop of Summer 2015. Not only did the $120 million movie get absolutely thrashed by critics, but it's only managed to make $160 million worldwide. You'd think that this performance would put any kind of conversation about a sequel to bed, but that's clearly not the attitude behind the scenes at 20th Century Fox. Instead, they're still trying to make Fantastic Four 2 a thing. MTV recently caught up with Fantastic Four writer/producer Simon Kinberg, and got some inside scoop-age regarding the feelings towards Marvel's First Family these days. Most of Kinberg's comments denote that he is (understandably) super bummed about the way Fantastic Four worked out, but added that there is still a potential future for Miles Teller's Reed Richards, Kate Mara's Sue Storm, Michael B. Jordan's Johnny Storm, and Jamie Bell's Ben Grimm. »
Despite the utter failure of Fantastic Four both critically and commercially, it seems that 20th Century Fox isn’t quite ready to call time on the franchise, as writer-producer Simon Kinberg has revealed to MTV News that he’s “figuring out” the sequel.
“I’m really focused on the next one,” states Kinberg. “I do believe there is a great Fantastic Four movie that we’ve made with that cast. So I’m gonna figure out what that is. We’re figuring out what that movie would be. I’d like [the sequel] to happen.”
Kinberg also shared his thoughts on the reception to the Josh Trank-directed film, stating that: “I was obviously disappointed. I was most disappointed that fans didn’t like it. I care more about them than I do anyone else. But I haven’t done a full deep dive on it. Do I think it was unfairly treated? »

Given that its barely scraped $150 million at the global box office, it seems that plenty of people decided to skip 20th Century Fox’s superhero reboot Fantastic Four, and that even extends to the cast, with Kate Mara revealing she’s yet to see the final product herself.
“No, [I haven’t seen it] but I will eventually,” Mara told the British newspaper The Times, stating that the negative reviews her left her “a little bit gun shy.”
Mara then went on to call Josh Trank’s decision to tweet negatively about the final cut of the film on the eve of its release as “highly disappointing”, adding that:
“It was a tricky shoot but you know… When you know when you’re shooting it that a film isn’t going to be what you want it to be? That was not the case at all. [We all] really had each other’s backs. That’s the »

Josh Trank’s Fantastic Four film was supposed to represent a defining turning point for the superhero quartet; to herald a time when Marvel’s First Family were accepted into the mainstream buzz and rub shoulders with the company’s other genre stalwarts. Alas, the much-touted reboot was, to put it mildly, a missed opportunity. But does that mean that Fox’s chastised franchise is beyond saving? Tommy Wiseau doesn’t believe so.
We’ve seen the fleeting signs of hope and potential buried beneath the film’s media circus, whether it’s the deleted sequences or Max Landis’ original script, but Wiseau is done looking at the botched blockbuster and is instead envisioning its planned sequel – a sequel he believes he could direct.

Between the terrible reviews [read ours here and here], underwhelming box office performance and director Josh Trank’s controversial tweet, it’s more than safe to say that Fantastic Four is the biggest flop of 2015 so far. Despite all this, however, Fox still hasn’t cancelled their plans for a sequel to the superhero film, meaning that the studio may be looking to salvage the franchise. Up until today, the big question remained: Who in Hollywood would want anything to do with Fantastic Four 2? An answer of sorts came from a recent Milwaukee Magazine interview, in which The Room director Tommy Wiseau expressed interest in helming the upcoming sequel.
In the interview, the infamous director said, “You know, I told you I saw this Fantastic Four….it just….I’m not being critical – let me put it this way, I like it, I did enjoy it number one. Number two, it’s too bad they didn’t call me, »

Labor Day weekend is finally here. That means the summer moviegoing season is over and done with. The smoke has cleared. The dust has settled. And you can pretty much guess what the biggest movies of this past four months were, especially if you spent a lot of time lingering around your local cinemaplex. But what were the biggest bombs? The movies you didn't see? There has been a lot of talk all through August about what a disaster 20th Century Fox's Fantastic Four turned out to be. But guess what? It comes in number two at the box office when talking about flops. What resides as number one?
Summer box office 2015 has made the record books. In terms of overall revenue, it is one of the biggest in history. But it is also notorious for dropping some of the biggest doots of all time. And none of the movies that failed will surprise you. »

Sitting in the development garage since at least 2011, action project Overdrive has hardly lived up to its name so far, generating a lot of interest without actually gaining any momentum. Producer Pierre Morel and director Antonio Negret are hoping that will change now they have The Longest Ride’s Scott Eastwood on board to star.Assuming everything comes together this time, the film, written by Wanted’s Michael Brandt and Derek Haas, focuses on two American brothers who decide to push their car-thief career into top gear by heading to France. But they end up running afoul of a much more dangerous criminal. In its long road to the screen, the film has attracted several variations of the sibling duo with Alex Pettyfer and Matthew Goode, Karl Urban and Ben Barnes and Jamie Bell and Garrett Hedlund all loosely attached at one time or another, with the film passing through »
We were willing to accept Kate Mara and Jamie Bell as "the very best of friends" for a while, but this latest picture is definitely sparking romance rumors once again. Stylist to the stars Johnny Wujek Instagrammed a group shot of he and his pals, including Mara and Bell, enjoying their time on the beach Monday evening. Sure, it's just your classic friends pic, but what's catching people's eyes is the fact that Mara, 32, is resting her head on 29-year-old Bell's bare chest! These two look awfully cozy... "Celebrating the Full Moon in Malibu last night w/ this lot of Goof Balls. #ilovemyfriends #crystals&tequila," Wujek captioned the pic. The twosome seemed to be enjoying »

It was the fail story of the Summer, with Twentieth Century Fox’s tentpole superhero blockbuster bombing so hard at the box office, it took out a five-mile stretch of Odeons in the Greater Bexleyheath area. In the September edition of The Flickering Myth Movie Show, Oli Davis, Rebecca Perfect, Luke Owen and Kat Kourbeti discuss the problems with the movie, the practice of entrusting $100million+ franchises with young, independent filmmakers (think Gareth Edwards on Godzilla and Colin Treverrow on Jurassic World), and who is really to blame for the movie’s failure – Fantastic Four’s director Josh Trank, or the studio that allegedly hamstrung his production?
