See that is part of the problem. Putting grit and Fantastic Four together is like describing Superman as a murderer. Wait. Well, ****...

ive never said this to anybody before brett but your bowel movements sound amazing

Which is the stupidest excuse ever. People kinda forget that Sue was 19, and Johnny 16 when FF #1 came out in 1962. Reed is 6 years older than Sue (they first met when he was 19 and working for her da

It's not spite. They honestly think they can make money off of this franchise, which astounds me. The deck was stacked against the FF from day one because of its inherent corny factor. I just don't see any way to make it work on film, and now that they've done this the odds of making any real money are worse than ever.

 

Suits me just fine, though, because I always hated the comic. I'm just glad we won't have to see a crossover with the X Men.

I'd bet anything that the FF will be like Punisher and Ghost Rider and it will quietly return to Marvel. spider-man is too iconic to not go big with. marvel's plans are so worked out for years I don't see room for a FF movie. They'd fight for the X-Men, but not the FF.

 

Meanwhile, Fox could easily put all their money into the x-men. There's enough characters and sub groups to build their own universe with.

I guess but working the FF into Marvel is going to be a tough sell. Maybe a cameo in an Avengers flick where Thing and Hulk could go at it?

 

To me the selling points of FF are Torch and Thing. If they can make an impact in a cameo role in a big Mavel flick I can understand another attempt to revive FF.

 

Otherwise it just needs to die. Any way you cut it Plastic Man just sucks.

I'll see it eventually, though hopefully that won't be until it comes to tv. If I wasn't backlogged on other movies in the theater right now, though, I might otherwise be willing to go see it just because.

I imagine anyone with even the slightest bit of knowledge of movie rights will tell them to give/sell them back to Marvel. But yeah, pretty goddamn stupid. Is there any franchise Fox hasn't completely bungled at one point or another?
