The Fantastic Four - Fantastic Four in film - Netflix
The fictional superhero team Fantastic Four featured in Marvel Comics
publication has appeared in four live-action films since its inception.
The plots deal with four main characters, known formally as Reed
Richards, Susan Storm, Ben Grimm and Johnny Storm, and how they adapt to
the superpowers they attain. Constantin Film bought the film rights for
the characters in 1986. A low-budget film was produced in 1992 by New
Horizon Studios owned by Roger Corman. In 2004, with a distribution deal
from 20th Century Fox, a second Fantastic Four film entered production.
Fantastic Four was released in 2005 and the sequel Fantastic Four: Rise
of the Silver Surfer was released in 2007. Both films received mixed to
negative reviews from critics, yet earned a combined US$619 million
worldwide at the box office. Due to 20th Century Fox's disappointment
with the box-office return of Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer,
a potential third Fantastic Four film and a Silver Surfer spin-off film
were canceled. In 2009, the development for a reboot was announced.
Directed by Josh Trank, Fantastic Four was released on August 7, 2015
and received negative reviews from both critics and public, and Trank
himself. A sequel to the reboot was scheduled to be released on June 9,
2017, but it was removed from Fox's upcoming slate.
