Fantastic Four currently sits at $155 million worldwide at the box office with a 9% positive (or 91% negative, depending on how you want to look at it) Rotten Tomatoes score.
Now the co-creator of the Fantastic Four, Stan Lee, weighs in on the movie’s flop while speaking with Larry King.
“It was probably because I didn’t have a cameo in it,” Lee offered. “They didn’t discuss the story with me. I haven’t seen it yet. I really can’t comment about it.”
King, surprised that Stan Lee hasn’t seen Fantastic Four, questioned why he wouldn’t run to see it.
“I don’t run to see anything,” Lee responded. “I walk jaunty-jolly, as Mel Brooks would say, and I just get there eventually.”
Stan Lee also offers it “may be true” that movie studios reboot things too quickly.
