Fantastic Four bombed at the box office, with the blame aimed at either Simon Kinberg or director Josh Trank (probably both).
It’s probably safe to say that it isn’t the fault of the cast, who I felt did a pretty good job.
Fantastic Four made a measily $168 million at the box office in total, which is almost unheard of these days for a superhero movie, not to mention a Marvel property (Fox Studios owns the rights).
That said, it’s unclear if a Fantastic Four sequel will get made, but in the video below Kata Mara states she would love to come back.
Worth a mention is that Fox Studios eventually has to make another Fantastic Four movie or the rights will revert back to Dsiney and Marvel Studios, but whether or not it will be with this cast is anyone’s guess.
An early Fantastic Four script did sound pretty good as it featured Galactus, Silver Surfer, Annihilus, Mole Man and more; however it required a much larger budget. Maybe that’s the route to go with?
