Last night, Earl told me that he heard that Fox is planning a Fantastic Four reboot. After searching for it on my own, I was able to find some unconfirmed rumors about it. Apparently, Fox wants to scrap the entire cast from the previous two films and start the series over like they did with The Incredible Hulk. Now, with Hulk this was a good idea, but I liked the first two Fantastic Four movies. They do not need to get a reboot.
They way I see it, if the original one was so bad, then why did it get a sequel? Sure, it has its critics, but it is not bad enough to warrant a reboot. This new one will supposedly take a darker tone; it is being compared to Iron Man and The Dark Knight. That is the problem, ever since TDK, dark comic book movies have become a fad. There is nothing wrong with some of them being dark. Batman should be dark, but the Fantastic Four?! I know they have their dark moments, but I don’t think of them as particularly dark comic.
I sincerely hope this rumor is false, because I think it will ruin the series, but what do you think?
