Just let them rights revert.....don't even make a deal yet because Marvel might f*ck around and pull what they did with spiderman and reboot em within 2 years, reshaping half of phase 3
scruffylookingnerfherder - 8/10/2015, 2:16 PM
There is only one option. FOX has shit the bed too many times.
Wannabe - 8/10/2015, 2:17 PM
Give the [frick]ing rights back.
Nick56 - 8/10/2015, 2:19 PM
Im indifferent as to whether they soft-reboot, reboot fully, or give the rights to disney
Bl00dwerK - 8/10/2015, 2:19 PM
^ That. Marvel could get something sooner rather than later if a deal was struck...

Look, of course we want the rights to revert back, but put yourself in Fox's shoes. there is no way they are tossing this family out. they have some time until the rights are lost. They know that this is a potential moneymaker, even if they keep messing it up.

I think, if I was Fox, I would forge ahead with a sequel, but delay the release to coincide with the rights. Limit the release, find an interesting director to tell an interesting story. Don't invest too much, but enough for decent fx and then see. People are open to an F4 movie, but not just BECAUSE it is an F4 movie. If there is a good premise, people will come.

Third times the charm didn't work out for them. Cut their losses and focus on the X-Men tv show.
Mercwitham0uth - 8/10/2015, 2:25 PM
Give the rights back to Marvel.
Mrsinister - 8/10/2015, 2:26 PM
They can easily make a good sequel. I loved the direction they were going in; it just wasn't executed properly
DavidMullich - 8/10/2015, 2:26 PM
Fox should make a deal. They obviously don't know how to make a Fantastic Four film, but they are not simply going to let the rights revert without any attempt to get some money out of it.

I don't give a damn about he FF! I would love to see Marvel/Disney assume creative control of the Skrulls, Super Skrulls, Galactus (Cloudless) and Silver Surfer (Non-Terminator Board) and introduce Dr. Doom in Doctor Strange movie (Sorcery and Technology)! As scruffylookingnerfherder eloquently put it, "Fox has shit the bed too many times!"

Go back to marvel the first family come home
Chewtoy - 8/10/2015, 2:32 PM
There are only 2 real options... Sit on the rights until the expire to keep them out of Marvel's hands for a long as possible, or see what Marvel will give them, if anything, to return them ahead of schedule. It all comes down to whether Marvel wants them enough to offer anything, or is content to just wait 7 years or whatever anyway.

I don't think that there is anything else Fox can do with them. Every attempt to use these characters themselves is just going to be linked to this colossal failure, and they'll have to work to overcome negative impressions... and why would they bother? That's not why you use a recognizable property to make a movie... You use them in the first place because it's supposed to be an *easier* sell, with built-in fans that will show up. Far better to spend whatever money you would use to make any FF-based film on something that is at least neutral in the audience's minds.

It wouldn't be a good idea for FOX to let go of the Fantastic Four because they usually are a profitable brand. But FOX has tarnished it so much that it might not be THAT profitable anymore. At least, not for the foreseeable future.

But watch out, knowing FOX, they'll either make an even worst sequel or sell the rights to Warner Brothers.

That would be a shocker !
LoJav - 8/10/2015, 2:35 PM
Fox wants to make an X-Men television show but they can't move forward without approval from Marvel. On the flip side, Marvel wants the movie rights back to its first family. Fox has been unable to be successful with Fantastic Four, yet has been very successful with the X-Men franchise. So, honestly, they have a huge playground they can still play with if they trade the Fantastic Four rights for X-Men television rights. I say they either do the trade or make a Sony style deal. And, if Marvel does get the movie rights back to Fantastic Four, they should be introduced in another movie much like Spider-Man will be introduced in Civil War.

This movie is the result of bad administration and bad relationships between the producers and creative minds, I mean the movie hold it's ground, the story was good the cast was developing the characters greatly, it was till that "1 year after" that the movie fell apart you can tell that was the moment Trank and FOX got like an old marrige and blew it.

The smart thing for FOX cocerning FF is to make a deal with Marvel, repair the damage done by releasing a Director's Cut, I think everyone would be interested to watch, and FOX come to an agreement with the production of a sequel (And Stick To It), and then let Marvel and Trank do their thing with pt2.

Because I don't think everyone wants to wait another 10-8 years to see another reboot, that is what people want and at this point deserve, and that is the most convenient thing for FOX to do.

Hire Christopher Nolan. Plain and simple. Go dark. Really dark. Push the boundries of what a CBM can be. Redefine the genre.
Facade - 8/10/2015, 2:44 PM
Scrap this crap!
dezdigi - 8/10/2015, 2:50 PM
FF rights for X-men tv rights. We know what needs to happen! DO IT!
saymekian - 8/10/2015, 2:52 PM
I love all the comments saying they would be dumb to let the rights go back to Marvel. Why? So they can lose money AGAIN? At this point, the license is just COSTING them money. Deal or revert are the only options.
seamuskeaneart - 8/10/2015, 2:54 PM
They should keep going and do a sequal. Wolverine origins was a mess, and it flopped, but The wolverine was much better and did well.
KBZ - 8/10/2015, 2:54 PM
Please just make a god damn sequel without Trank. First one was a good film. Horribly bogged down by negative buzz.
JediPhilosopher - 8/10/2015, 2:57 PM
I chose "Let the rights revert" because I didn't see the "make a Deal" option in time. But, yeah, get these characters in Marvel's hands asap.
JediPhilosopher - 8/10/2015, 3:03 PM
GarthRanzz: "Hire Christopher Nolan. Plain and simple. Go dark. Really dark. Push the boundries of what a CBM can be. Redefine the genre."

Really, of all superhero teams, you want to do this to the Fantastic Four? I think the focus on "dark" is the real problem, as if that's the thing that works. "Something something dark..." It muddies what we really need. What we need, in telling a story like Fantastic 4, is a good balanced take. People.., without balance, these things are wrecks! Don't go for all dark, all serious, all depressing. Real life isn't even like that. No intelligent human being who puts on a costume and fights crime/evil/injustice is going to be completely without a sense of humor about the oddness of it.
KBZ - 8/10/2015, 3:07 PM
People really don't understand how unique the circumstances were for spiderman to go back to sony. Mostly the North Korea issues and the hack. They were desperate. Fox is pretty far from desperate right now. Now sure they may reboot themselves instead of making a sequel, but they will not give it to marvel. No reason for them to
AlexanderLykins - 8/10/2015, 3:07 PM
They'll make a deal.
Donekin - 8/10/2015, 3:12 PM
Take another crack at this version. I say pull it now, reshoot some scenes, and pay for some leadership, then give the fans another chance to see this franchise form. We can forgive the first blunder, yes? Plus, such an unprecedented reaction would generate interest.
Bane - 8/10/2015, 3:14 PM
Forge ahead. Let Bryan Singer direct.
ComradeGrey - 8/10/2015, 3:16 PM
"Let the rights revert" just means Marvel has the rights, it doesn't mean we'd get an FF movie anytime soon (or ever).

"Make a deal" would likely mean that Marvel would be contractually obligated to do something with the series. Personally I think we are now at a point where special effects in TV could actually work with a Fantastic Four series, even if it was on Netflix.
Abary - 8/10/2015, 3:19 PM
Other: Stop making Fantastic Four movies. Make a TV show.
Nivekian - 8/10/2015, 3:21 PM
Do a Big Hero 6 style animated fantastic Four film at Disney. The concept would work better and cleanse the bad taste left by the Fox movies.
DM725 - 8/10/2015, 3:21 PM
It'll take the better part of a decade to let the rights revert to Marvel. Sell the rights back to Marvel or work a Sony Deal and step out of the way.
Quick1029 - 8/10/2015, 3:28 PM
The rights shouldn't go to Marvel. I don't care how good the movies are. I think it's time to admit that these charaacters won't work in live-action.
JediPhilosopher - 8/10/2015, 3:33 PM
Donekin, did you mean the first blunder in the eighties? or the 2000s? or the 2015 one? :P
JediPhilosopher - 8/10/2015, 3:34 PM
Anyone who says these characters can't work in live action has no imagination.
NightsKing - 8/10/2015, 3:47 PM
If they let the rights revert it will take seven years for that to happen fox needs to make a deal.
SomDonkus - 8/10/2015, 3:50 PM
Honestly even if Marvel got it back it would be destroyed and tarnished. They would have to wait at least 7 years anyway before they could release a film that wouldn't trigger war flash backs in the general audience. Even then I would be reluctant to watch it because I mean what else can I possibly expect from an initial FF film?
AlphaDean - 8/10/2015, 3:53 PM
Fox needs to get out of the comic book movie game and just let it go. All there films suck on some level there or another. I'm tired of their hollow attempts at making comic book based films
