Josh Trank’s reboot of Fantastic Four was an absolute disaster at the box office, failing to make any profit for the studio. However, film’s writer Jeremy Slater has now made an apology to all Marvel fans who were really disappointed after watching the film. He even gushed about his upcoming project where he is currently working on the adaptation of The Tommyknockers by Stephen King.
“And when I finally got my foot in the door, I only had three dream projects on my bucket list. One was Marvel (umm…sorry about that one, guys), one was Star Wars, and the third, of course, was Stephen King. Any one of those jobs would let me die a happy man,”
It’s good to see the writer excited for his next project even after he suffered a terrible loss with Fantastic Four. The Fantastic Four’s reboot made major changes to the original storyline, which wasn’t really liked by fans. The film was badly panned down by critics and it had many extensive reshoots and on-set troubles.
But as Fox is inching closer to finalise their deal with Disney, that will give the control of all Fox’s assets to Marvel Studios, including characters like X-Men, Deadpool and Fantastic Four.
The deal won’t be over till 2019 so we won’t be seeing any Fantastic Four film until then. However, the fans have already started to make their lists for the film’s casting. We really hope that Marvel’s attempt at the franchise will be an improved version its previous adaptations.
