However, Marvel Studios is looking to polish this gem of a superhero team with a new take set firmly within the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Fifth time’s the charm, as Marvel Studios’ Kevin Feige announced during Disney’s Investors Day presentation that Spider-Man: Homecoming and Spider-Man: Far From Home director Jon Watts will direct the new Fantastic Four movie.

Most everyone who worked on Josh Trank‘s 2015 Fantastic Four has, at some point, wished they could forget about the whole thing. From Trank, who has been open about his clashes with studio execs behind the scenes, to the cast members, all of whom came out of the box office bomb relatively unscathed, and even bigger stars in some cases. One of those cast members is Kate Mara, who recently revealed that she had a “horrible experience on Fantastic Four,” apart from meeting her now-husband Jamie Bell. But she doesn’t want to forget it happened, because it was a “good learning experience” for the actress.
