One of the biggest blockbuster disasters of 2015 was undoubtedly Fantastic Four. The Marvel comic adaptation from 20th Century Fox pulled in nearly $168 million on a budget of $120 million, and it was absolutely slaughtered by critics and fans alike. Despite Josh Trank‘s best efforts, it appears some tampering from the studio to change the original vision for the movie resulted in a huge mess of a movie. But despite that, producer and writer Simon Kinberg still believes a sequel is possible, and at least two of the film’s co-stars are game to return to their roles.
Miles Teller and Kate Mara, who play the would-be couple Reed Richards and Sue Storm, have both expressed that they’d be happy to come back for Fantastic Four 2. But the question is whether or not anyone actually wants to see what happen. Read More »

Earlier this summer, Marvel Studios kicked off the blockbuster season with Captain America: Civil War. Not only was it a huge comic book flick because it featured a face-off between Iron Man and Captain America, forcing the rest of The Avengers to pick a side and fight against each other, but it also featured the introduction of the new Spider-Man, who finally allowed to co-exist in the Marvel cinematic universe after being isolated at Sony Pictures for about 15 years. Now another comic book movie crossover might be in the works as well.
A new rumor has surfaced, one that should be taken a a dump truck full of salt, that Marvel Studios and 20th Century Fox have discussed the possibility of having some kind of crossover featuring the Marvel characters each of the studios own.

Last year’s Fantastic Four was a failure by just about any measure. It’s one of the worst reviewed and one of the lowest-grossing Marvel Comics adaptations of all time, it derailed Josh Trank’s once-promising career, and it further tarnished the reputation of a property that had already been ill-served by 2005’s Fantastic Four. It came as no surprise, then, when 20th Century Fox quietly yanked the planned sequel from its summer 2017 slate. But producer Simon Kinberg says they aren’t giving up just yet.
“We want to make another Fantastic Four movie,” Kinberg said during the recent press tour for X-Men: Apocalypse. And they’re really going to try to get it right this time, he promises: “We’ll try to be truer to the essence of the tone of Fantastic Four,” he said. Read More »
Even though the phrase “superhero fatigue” is getting thrown around a lot, and some people have expressed their distaste for the popular genre of films in general, the box office numbers and fanbases are enough to prove that concept wrong. We’re living in a golden age of superhero movies, and while not all of them are outstanding, they’ve never been better or more beloved by general audiences then they are now.
But that doesn’t mean there still aren’t references in comic book movies that are only made for the most hardcore fans to understand. See if you picked up on some of these more obscure superhero movie Easter eggs in films like Superman: The Movie, Spider-Man 2, The Dark Knight and more. Read More »
