Simon Kinberg Is Sticking To A Fan4stic Sequel!
It’s easy to say that from the very beginning you knew Fan4stic would be an awful movie, but that group is very small compared to the rest of the world. We all hoped the film would be, at the very least good, but it wasn’t. The truth of the matter is movies are very hard to make, it’s a lot of very long hours, lack of sleep, constant stress, even some of your favorite movies has had issues behind-the-scenes, some famously so, some you’ll never hear about. Producer and writer Simon Kinberg confirmed that they are “Figuring Out” the sequel.
“I’m really focused on the next one,” writer and producer Simon Kinberg told MTV News. “I do believe there is a great ’Fantastic Four’ movie that we’ve made with that cast. So I’m gonna figure out what that is. We’re figuring out what that movie would be. I’d like that to happen. I’ve been on plenty of happy movies that don’t turn out to be very good movies, I’ve been on a lot of unhappy, difficult sets that turn out to be great movies. 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.” So while I understand the movie making process is a grinding experience, that still doesn’t change the fact that so many of their ideas were just so horrible that you could tell there wasn’t a love for these characters or property, this movie was made to fill in a spot in a spreadsheet.
Kinberg went on to reveal how he feels about letting the fans down with the reboot. “I was obviously disappointed,” he continued. “I was most disappointed that fans didn’t like it. I care more about them than I do anyone else. But I haven’t done a full deep dive on it. Do I think it was unfairly treated? I don’t know.”
My biggest problem with the reboot is they tried to revamp a product they couldn’t get right the first two times. The first two films never fully committed to the FF4 lore and so when they came with these new idea for a reboot, many fans immediately jumped ship because we have yet to get that good Fantastic Four movie. So it really doesn’t matter what they do at this point, nearly everyone stayed away from this train wreck of a film. I believe Kinberg and Fox are just remaining as positive as possible since the film still has to be released in other territories overseas and they’re trying to recoup as much as possible before they leave this franchise in the dumpster for another seven years.
