Simon Kinberg Says Fox Won't Make Another FANTASTIC FOUR Movie Until They Get It "100% Right"

Fantastic Four writer and producer Simon Kinberg has shed some light on the future of the franchise and whether or not we'll see an alternate cut of Josh Trank's critically panned reboot from 2015...

Josh Trank's Fantastic Four movie is one of the worst reviewed comic book adaptations of all-time and it just so happened to be a massive flop at the box office as well. As a result, the future of the iconic foursome has been left in doubt, though it's fair to say that the vast majority of fans would be happiest with them returning home to Marvel Studios, thanks to villains like Galactus and Annihilus. 

Talking to Collider recently, producer Simon Kinberg was asked about what's next for the property, and it sounds like the Fantastic Four is now pretty low on the list of Fox's comic book priorities. "I have no idea," he admitted. "I think the truth is we would not make another Fantastic Four movie until it was ready to be made. One of the lessons we learned
on that movie is that we want to make sure we get it 100% right, because we will not get another chance with the fans."

Fox only has so long to sit on the Fantastic Four franchise before the rights revert, but after three failures, you have to believe there's a chance they'll let that happen now. Then again, they might just rush out another reboot at some point in the next few years. We'll just have to wait and see, but what about a different cut of Josh Trank's version after it was totally changed via reshoots?

"I don’t know the answer to that in terms of whether or not fans will ever see it. I think B-roll is probably the place where they will see it. And for us, it’s in the past in the sense of lessons learned and we would love to make another Fantastic Four movie. We really believe in that cast, and I think the lessons that we learned would help us make a more consistent movie than we did the first time."
