Fox Dates The Fantastic Four 2, a Wolverine Sequel and a Mystery Marvel Project!

SuperHeroHype

Mar 20, 2014

20th Century Fox is doing some serious forward-thinking as far as their portion of the Marvel Universe is concerned. The studio has just announced that James Mangold's sequel to The Wolverine will hit on March 3, 2017 with The Fantastic Four 2 coming to theaters on July 14, 2017. They've also set a just-announced mystery Marvel project for July 18, 2018.

All of these dates are newly claimed territory on the release schedule and will follow the studio's X-Men: Days of Future Past this May 23rd, X-Men: Apocalypse on May 27, 2016 (both directed by Bryan Singer) and Josh Trank's The Fantastic Four on June 19, 2015.

There's no word yet on what the mystery Marvel film might be, but the studio is also believed to be developing an X-Force film with Jeff Wadlow directing.

The studio has also moved Matthew Vaughn's non-Marvel Universe comic book project, The Secret Service, even earlier from its originally-announced March 6, 2015 release to October 24 of this year. That will have it opening opposite the horror releases Ouija and Paranormal Activity 5. Ken Scott's new comedy, formerly titled Business or Pleasure, is now title-less and will take The Secret Service's original March 6, 2015 date.

Fantastic Four 2 Moved Back Following Star Wars Announcement

SuperHeroHype

Mar 12, 2015

Following Walt Disney Pictures’ announcement earlier today that Star Wars: Episode VIII will hit theaters on May 26, 2017, 20th Century Fox has made a quick decision to move back Fantastic Four 2 from June 2, 2017 to June 9, 2017. While it’s not a huge push back, it does give the superhero sequel a bit more breathing room. Warner Bros. Pictures, meanwhile, hasn’t said anything about The LEGO Batman Movie yet, as that film also previously set a release date of May 26, 2017.

Why do I get a feeling that after the first movie bombs this thread will be as dead as the Amazing Spider-Man 3 one?

Fantastic Four Sequel Pulled from Fox Schedule

SuperHeroHype

Nov 24, 2015

Despite writer/producer Simon Kinberg expressing a desire to make more movies with the cast, 20th Century Fox has pulled the Fantastic Four sequel from their release calendar. The film was scheduled to debut in theaters on June 2, 2017, one week after Star Wars: Episode VIII.

Loosely based on Marvel’s “Ultimate Fantastic Four” comic series, the film was mired in controversy from the start, including a controversial tweet from director Josh Trank sent the day the film opened, lamenting the quality of the final cut.

The film went on to gross just $56 million at the domestic box office with a global total of $167 million. It reportedly cost about $120 million to make.

From Newsarama:

FANTASTIC FOUR Producer Wants To Reunite Cast For 'Brighter' Sequel

by George Marston, Newsarama Contributor

Date: 13 May 2016 Time: 01:13 PM ET

Fantastic Four producer Simon Kinberg says last year's reboot film wasn't "a good movie," but that isn't stopping him from wanting to produce a sequel that is closer in tone to the comic book.

“We didn't make a good movie,” Kinberg told Den Of Geek. “And the world voted, and I think they probably voted correctly. And you can't make a good movie every time out - not everybody does. We actually have a pretty good batting average, all things considered. But I think we made many mistakes when we made that movie - mistakes that we learned from and we wouldn't repeat.”

Kinberg went on to praise the film's cast, and offer some insight into where he thinks the film went wrong.

“We want to make another Fantastic Four movie. We love that cast - I mean if I were to say to you now Michael B. Jordan and Miles Teller, and Kate [Mara] and Jamie [Bell] are great actors - we love that cast. I love the comic, I mean I love it almost as much as X-Men," Kinberg explained. "We'll try to be truer to the essence of the tone of Fantastic Four, which is completely - well, not completely, but largely - distinct from the X-Men, which is brighter, funner, more optimistic tone. I think we tried to make a darker Fantastic Four movie, which seemed like a radical idea but we were kind of messing with the DNA of the actual comic instead of trusting the DNA of the comic.”

It's still unclear whether a sequel for Fantastic Four is still in the plans for 20th Century Fox, after last year's reboot was met dismal critical and fan reception. Fantastic Four 2 was removed from Fox's schedule last year and the studio has not mentioned the property since.

Despite Kinberg's affection of the cast who were not at fault for the film's failure, it is highly doubtful any new FF attempt by Fox would have any relation to the Trank-disaster.

Of course, given the successful relaunch of Spider-Man in Marvel Studio's Captain America: Civil War in advance of Sony's Spider-Man: Homecoming next summer, speculation (or wishful thinking) of a Marvel-Fox team-up to bring the FF to the MCU will hang over the property for some time.

Newsarama also continues to argue that any new attempt at the property should embrace a more faithful, older version of the team and one of if not the most distinguishing characteristics of the concept - that they are already a fully-formed, extended nuclear family.
