Well, I think it’s safe to say that, while there was glimmers throughout of a decent movie, Fantastic Four was, well, less than fantastic.

However, never one to give up the ghost, writer/producer Simon Kinberg is still determined to make the franchise a success alongside the X-Men movies.

Chatting with MTV, Kinberg said: “I’m really focused on the next one…We’re figuring out what that movie would be… I do believe there is a great Fantastic Four movie to be made with that cast. So I’m going to figure out what that is. I’d like that to happen.”

He seems to have taken the first movies poor reception to heart:”I was obviously disappointed. I was more disappointed that fans didn’t like it. I care more about them than I do anyone else. But I haven’t done a deep dive on it. Do I think it was unfairly treated? I don’t know… There was a lot of attention on the process of making that movie. It’s hard, when you’re making a movie. Movies are hard to make. It’s just the reality.”

What do you think? Would you give a sequel a shot? Do you think there is hope for the franchise or should they just quit and give it back to Marvel?

Either way, it’s still on Fox’s schedule for 2017. For now.

Sound off folks…

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
