Yeah, but that's throwing good money after bad out of spite. Eventually Fox shareholders would revolt about the studio trying to keep a franchise going they can't get to work, and the rights will lapse and Marvel Studios will be waiting to snatch them back - just like they did with Daredevil, Ghost Rider, Hulk and Punisher.

My only concern is none of those companies who held those properties(if I remember correctly)were Fox, the corporate giant. Fox has money on tap and may just decide to let it ride one last time to further their attempt at their own shared universe with the X-Men.

But honestly considering the Director, screen writer and cast, I doubt it will be a bad movie. But it won't be a true FF movie either.


Marvel studios doesn't need to make another fantastic four movie. All they need is the characters associated with the FF franchise.
Silver surfer, galactus, gladiator?, skrulls , etc

Yeah I agree I wouldn't even mind not seee another FF for a while as long as Marvel got to use their characters and even them for cameos.

Oh Yeah I forgot about the shared universe thing. They'll definitely want to try that. But then again if the FF reboot flops there will be no benefit to an X-Men/FF crossover. They would just be better off expanding on the X-Universe. There's plenty to work with right there.

So filming on this is done! Yet we don't even have a trailer yet.. Guess we can expect one soon though:

Guess it's kind of smart opening about 6 weeks after the Avengers. People will be all hyped up and want another superhero team up... Maybe...

I'm honestly negatively excited for this movie...

Are the Shi'ar part of the X-men package? I'd love an annihilators movie, though the MCU version could always swap Glads with BB if need be for the same effect.

I'm sure the movie will do well with the GA.

This movie does have some things going against it. Other than being a reboot of a franchise most people consider "meh" at best, it's set to come out a month after Avengers 2. It's opening the same day as Pixar's Inside Out. Which may end up costing them the family audience. And Jurassic World and Terminator 5 are also coming out around the same time.

The Incredible Hulk underperformed for similar reasons. Being a reboot of a movie most people still had a bad tastes in their mouths from(there's still people that think it was a sequel). Coming out in a very crowded summer in between Iron Man and The Dark Knight.

I thought that was proven to be an imposter. It was a brand new, unverified account that was answering those questions.

edit: Yep, here's the updated article.

Whoah there, easy sailor. It was a clarification that the twitter thing was a fake, not an attack against you.

Since its been revealed as fake

i wonder if the real Josh Trank's response will be anything different to that last question about Johnny being black.

Honestly I'm wondering if they actually filmed anything. This twitter Q and A was revealed as a fake. That Thing bust sculpt was revealed as a fake. There was no news at Comic Con a few weeks ago. No production stills. No poster has been revealed, heck there hasn't even been a logo revealed yet. The only piece of evidence that this movie is being made is a selfie of four actors in street close standing on a sidewalk, and this is scheduled for release in 10 months...

Is Fox pulling a Corman and "making" a Fantastic Four film to sit on the rights or what?

It was posted from the same fake and now deleted twitter(@josh_trank) as the phony Q and A. We've gotten more updates on this from a prankster pretending to be Trank than we have from the real director.

Well if they don't care about the movie then neither should we. If they haven't put their hearts and soul into this movie then here's hoping it flops and the rights revert to Marvel.

My thoughts exactly. Here are a few "gems" of information from the people involved with this film:


Kate Mara told not to read any F4 comics because it has nothing to do with their storylines:

quote:
“I’ve never been a fan of comics, I’ve never actually read one,” Mara told Esquire Mexico. “I was going to for this movie but the director said it wasn’t necessary. Well, actually he told us that we shouldn’t do it because the plot won’t be based on any history of anything already published. So I chose to follow his instructions.


http://spinoff.comicbookresources.c...-comic-stories/

Michael B. Jordan says they're not superheroes, more like disabled kids:

quote:
It’s not your typical superhero film, you know, we aren’t looking at this as like, being superheroes. We’re more or less a bunch of kids that had an accident and we have disabilities now that we have to cope with, and try to find a life afterwards – try to be as normal as we can.



http://www.mtv.com/news/1871300/mic...reed-interview/

It's going to be found footage:

http://www.cinemablend.com/m/new/Fa...Feel-43635.html


The Fantastic Four, the original celebrity heroes, will not be celebrities in this film, and they won't even be called the Fantastic Four:

http://movies.cosmicbooknews.com/co...n-kinberg-video


Add to these the horrible miscasting of everyone, especially a 12 year old looking Reed Richards and scrawny Ben Grimm, and we have not a faithful adaptation of a beloved comic, nor do we even have a fresh spin on an existing concept. We have a desperate, low budget rights grab to keep Disney from cashing in on what Fox considers their toy, even though they refuse to play with it correctly.
