Fox’s Fantastic Four reboot was a massive flop, and though they insisted their intentions were to push forward with a sequel, the sequel seems to be missing from their upcoming film slate.
Fantastic Four was the most talked about flop of the year, and while it may not end up being the biggest financial loss, the sheer amount of negative press the film received should have had Fox incredibly worried.
The potential for any and all sequels should have vanished, yet Fox planned to release one in June 2017, but a new report from BoxOfficeMojo reveals the sequel has been removed from the official slate, with a new film being added.
While this doesn’t mean a sequel or reboot has been officially canceled, Fox has added a new film to their slate called Murder of the Orient Express which is due to be released November 11, 2017. This still leaves all of 2016 to figure out what to do with the franchise they hoped would include three films with the new cast.
We wouldn’t be surprised to find out that Fantastic Four’s sequel is officially off their radar for good, considering just how much of a disaster the first film was, but it’s a superhero property, so anything is possible.
For now it looks like the sequel has been shelved, but there’s nothing official from Fox just yet, so we’ll have to wait to see if they can make a successful Fantastic Four film without losing $100+ million.
Are fans of any of the Fantastic Four films even interested in a sequel with Fox? Or would you like to see Fox try to work out a deal with Marvel similar to what Sony was able to achieve with Spider-Man, getting him quickly added to their upcoming film Captain America: Civil War.
