Get ready for the new daily show

Yup, it looks like FOX are working on ANOTHER Fantastic Four reboot…

Ok, so Marvel movie boss Kevin Feige told us last week that there were no plans to bring Fantastic Four into the MCU fold, despite two failed attempts at a franchise over at FOX.

We all know that if FOX don’t continue to make FF movies then Marvel WILL get the rights back.

So, guess what?

Yup, it looks like a new Fantastic Four franchise is in development and you’re going to be as surprised as we are about this one:

“Instead, it will concentrate on Franklin and Valeria, the children of Reed Richards and Susan Storm. While still having the Thing and the Human Torch along for the ride.

“Indeed, the whole movie will be kid-centric with a vibe far more reminiscent of The Incredibles. In an instant, this will totally separate the movie from the previous failed attempt. But also mean there’s no actual need for a reboot. And, yes, we know this is full of generics.”

The movie is reportedly being penned by Seth Grahame-Smith who worked on the last FF movie although wasn’t credited on that one. He also co-wrote the novel Pride and Prejudice and Zombies and Abraham Lincoln, Vampire Hunter.

So there you have it; they tried the pretty inoffensive all-round approach with the first two FF movies, they went dark and adult with the last one and now they’re going with the kids’ version.

Try, try, try again…

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….
