Recently it was revealed that Fantastic Four 2 had been quietly removed from Fox’s schedule, but producer Simon Kinberg says they’re working on where to take the franchise following the movie’s dismal performance with fans and critics – and at the box office.
“Every film isn’t going to be a home run”, Michael B. Jordan – who played The Human Torch in the movie – told IGN. “Everybody involved didn’t set out to make a film that didn’t work. I think everybody wants to do the best job possible. I think it was a big education for me to realise that things aren’t in your control, and you can do everything you’re supposed to do. You can give 110% every day, »

20th Century Fox had huge plans for Fantastic Four. Sequels were confirmed, while it was even believed that Miles Teller, Michael B. Jordan, Kate Mara and Jamie Bell.s quartet would crossover into the same universe as the X-Men. But then the film flopped. Massively. Since then, we.ve been waiting for confirmation regarding the future of Fantastic Four 2. (A movie that still has a release date.) And now Tim Blake Nelson, who starred as Dr. Harvey Allen in the catastrophic blockbuster, has basically confirmed that it won.t be happening. I had the chance to speak with Nelson over the phone earlier, where we talked about his upcoming film Anesthesia, which he wrote and directed. During our chat, I decided to quiz Tim Blake Nelson for some clarity about Fantastic Four 2, and he admitted that he doesn.t expect it to happen. I think it.s off the schedule »
New year, same problems. As part of their preview of their 2016 movie preview (preview-ception!) released this photo released of the casts from Fox’s ‘X-Men’ universe taken by Sarah Dunn at Sdcc last year and augmented by illustrator John Royle. Actors from “X-Men Apocalypse,” “Deadpool,” “Gambit,” and the untitled Wolverine sequel were all on display. Well, not everyone. Some Very key players were missing. And the Internet noticed…immediately. Image Credit: 20th Century Fox/Empire Magazine Do you see it? Do you see who’s missing? The young mutants, including Storm (Alexandria Shipp), Jubilee (Lana Condor), are nowhere to be seen. Considering the microscope Hollywood has been under over diversity — or lack thereof — in recent years, it seems a gross misstep to remove two WoC (Women of Color) from the group shot. But wait, it gets weirder. With Twitter questioning just how this happened, eagle-eyed user TASK1ne noticed something very familiar about this photo. »

But wait. In the photo, Hathaway is wearing a blindingly bright red gown. Wasn't her dress of a metallic blue hue? Actually, no. It was beige (with patterns). Wait. Come to think of it, she actually wore a tux, not a dress. Or maybe it was all of the above. And more. How could that be? Well, the color, texture, format, and type of Anne Hathaway's outfits varied according to which 15 minutes of the Oscar telecast you watched on Sunday night, Feb. 27.
