Rumor: ‘Fantastic Four’ reboot based on unpublished Mark Millar children’s book. Go home Fox, you’re drunk
What the fuck are you doing, Fox. Like, can we just give the rights back to Marvel Studios at this point? Please? Jesus fucking Christ. This is a nonsensical idea if the book was written by anyone, let alone Mark Millar.
[Update: Or not. Fuck.]
So, Fox announced a couple of X-Men spin-off television show properties yesterday. Okay. Whatever. Read about them here. But what is really interesting is this rumor: in exchange for signing off on these spin-offs, Marvel has been given the Fantastic Four movie rights.
Is this crossover still going to be in play when Fantastic Four bombs? ‘Cause like — the movie is going to.
Fox wants Bryan Singer to helm the Fantastic Four sequel, in an effort to set-up the franchise’s crossover with the X-Men. Shoutout to Fox for not really giving a fuck about how FF is received, and just marching forward. Determined to make that Shared Universe dollar, banking on X-Men‘s caretaker to lay the groundwork.
News like this makes me want go to the Altar. Sprinkle incense upon its statuettes of the Darkened Gods. And pray to them for the collapse of the superhero movie market. Not only am I suffering fatigue from even my beloved MCU, but I’m just goddamn inclined to not want to see every fucking movie on the market be superhero related. Yeah, I know I’m contradictory. I’m complicated! Fuck you!
When news dropped last night that Josh Trank was leaving his Star Wars standalone flick, Rendar predicted to me he was fired. Well, I’m glad I waited to post about it. So he can like, look way correct.
