Fantastic Four to get a reboot

I was never a big fan of the Fantastic Four films so I’m actually pretty happy when I heard the word reboot mentioned.

The only news we have to go on so far is that Akiva Goldsman has been bought onto the project as a producer and  Michael Green,  who co-wrote “Green Lantern,” will be writing the script.

I think this is good news as The Dark Knight and Star Trek has shown what a good reboot can do for a franchise. I think the Fantastic Four has the right stuff to be as good a film as a Xmen 2 or a Spiderman or the first Blade. I’ve got my fingers crossed that Goldsman and Green can put the Fantastic back into the Fantastic Four.

  1. I actually like the FF movies. They were obviously aimed at the all ages market and were the lightest of the Marvel flicks by far… nothing wrong with that. Nice having superhero movies I can put on for my nephews without having to explain the plot too much or worry about Toby Maguire getting beaten half to death.
    That said though, Im happy with a reboot if its that or nothing.

      No problem with the all ages thing(Personally I think it’s good to have that balance so the kids as well as the adults are getting something) and I’m happy for it to keep that tone. I just wasn’t keen on some of the casting (although I did like johnny and the thing) and story elements. I did think however the second movie was a definite step up from the first film.

  2. Yeah terrible films. Bring on the reboot 🙂
