FANTASTIC FOUR Sequel Backs Down From STAR WARS EPISODE VIII With New Release Date

The ramifications of Disney's surprising Star Wars Episode VIII release date announcement are already being felt, and while the Batman centric The LEGO Movie spinoff has yet to back down, the Fantastic Four 2 has been delayed. Hit the jump to find out the new release date!


Following the big Star Wars Episode VIII and Rogue One announcement made earlier today (details on that can be found by clicking here), 20th Century Fox has announced that Fantastic Four will now be released a week later than expected on June 9th, 2017 rather than the previously announced June 2nd, 2017. You might not think that a week would make all that much of a difference, but this moves the sequel a whole seven days away from Rian Johnson's entry into the Star Wars franchise,. Ultimately, it's just a smart move to at least give Fantastic Four 2 a fighting chance to hit #1 at the box office. What do you think? Share your thoughts on this news below!
