We have spent our fair share of time sifting through the ashes of the new Fantastic Four movie, desperately trying to figure out exactly what happened here. Call it a morbid fascination. Call it professional curiosity. All we know is that the finished movie is not what anyone involved set out to make. Now we have another item of interest – a glimpse at an early screenplay for the film and it couldn’t be more different than the final film.

Why the Biggest ‘Fantastic Four’ Action Scene Was Cut From the Movie

20th Century Fox
20th Century Fox

When Fantastic Four stumbled into theaters two weekends ago, the audiences that did show up noticed that the movie in theaters was not the movie being sold in the trailers. There were a ton of scenes and elements present in the marketing that were absent from the finished film. We even catalogued them right here. The full details of what went down (and what went wrong) on this set will probably remain covered up for a while yet, but details have begun to slowly trickle out. Now we know exactly what happened to the biggest missing scene of them all. Sort of.

Fox Reportedly Still Moving Ahead With ‘Fantastic Four 2’

fantastic four final trailer

As of this writing, Josh Trank’s Fantastic Four has made $25.6 million. Improbably, that’s less than half of either of the previous big-budget Fantastic Four movies, which are widely disliked by comics fan and cinephiles alike. There’s a chance Trank’s FF could wind up grossing less in theaters than Blade: Trinity, or even Trank’s own surprise debut hit, Chronicle (which cost about a tenth of his follow-up). In Hollywood parlance, those are ungood numbers. In most cases, they would almost mean certain doom (har dee har har) for any chance of a sequel.

Everything That Was Cut From ‘Fantastic Four’ Before Its Release (That We Know About)

Fantastic Four movie review
20th Century Fox

The fact that Fantastic Four had a disastrous shoot followed by laborious reshoots may be the worst kept Hollywood secret of all time. Even if director Josh Trank hadn’t publicly displayed his dissatisfaction with the finished movie, just about anyone who sat through this mess could tell something was wrong just from the finished product. They’d know if from the inconsistent pacing, the main characters who contribute nothing to the movie, and a climax that feels like it was cobbled together by a completely different creative team. Hell, they’d know it from Kate Mara’s terrible reshoot wig, which sticks out like, well, a bad wig.

Review: ‘Fantastic Four’ Is a Complete Bore

Fantastic Four movie review
20th Century Fox

Here’s the thing about this Fantastic Four movie: it was supposed to be horrible. This movie has been riding an almost unprecedented level of bad buzz since earlier this year. Strangely, it seems to have started over literally nothing. Fans were upset they hadn’t seen anything official from the movie and began to suspect it stunk. Then, depending on who you talk to, the director was fired, the actors were upset and the script was a mess. But, the days of speculation are over and none of that bad buzz matters any more; there’s an actual film that can be judged on its own merits. Sadly, Fantastic Four, on its own merits, is still horrible.

‘Fantastic Four’ Mashup Perfectly Blends the Reboot With Roger Corman’s Forgotten 1994 Film

Fantastic Four mashup

You may believe that 2005's Fantastic Four was the first time the quartet of superheroes appeared in a movie — you would be wrong. Back in 1994, cult director Roger Corman delivered his own adaptation based on Marvel’s first family, but Corman’s The Fantastic Four never made it to the big screen. It was never released on home video, either. A new mashup trailer combines footage from Corman’s lost film with the voiceover from the trailer for the new reboot, making a case for why the former should see the light of day.

‘Fantastic Four’ Clip: Watch the Team Make History as They Enter a New Dimension

Fantastic Four
20th Century Fox

As skeptical as many fans rightfully have been about Josh Trank’s reboot of Fantastic Four, there’s something sort of appealing about the film’s aesthetic and tone from the various teasers and trailers. In keeping with 20th Century Fox’s recent X-Men films, Fantastic Four looks as though it walks the line between the fun, vibrant world of the MCU and the grittier, stylized approach of Zack Snyder’s DCU.

Miles Teller Fantastic Four

One of the things that makes watching superhero films so fun is the incredible fiction involved. These films take scientific concepts beyond what’s possible, but both comic books and their big screen counterparts tend to find inspiration in real science. A new set of Fantastic Four featurettes compares the fantastical science fiction of the film with science fact, with the help of renowned theoretical physicist Michio Kaku.
