Watch The Trailer For ‘Doomed,’ The Documentary About Roger Corman’s Ill-Fated 1994 Fantastic Four Movie [Video]

Fantastic Four (1994)

If you've been to a comic book convention sometime in the past two decades, odds are pretty good that you've seen a grainy bootleg copy of Roger Corman's 1994 Fantastic Four movie up for sale. It's a staple of cons, largely because that's the only place you can get it -- the movie was never actually released in any format (aside from the odd YouTube upload), and remains that way to this day, even when Marvel movies are raking in the cash, which begs the question of why?

Convention wisdom is that they canned it because it's not very good, but let's be honest here: If you've ever seen that 1992 Captain America movie, you already know that's never stopped anybody before. Now, there's finally something that's set to answer the question: Doomed, a full-length documentary examining Corman's Fantastic Four and why it never actually made it to the screens.

Fox Taps Simon Kinberg To Build Shared X-Men And Fantastic Four Movie Universe

X4 Marvel
Marvel Comics

Mark Millar, who serves as a creative consultant to Twentieth Century Fox's Fantastic Four and X-Men movie franchises, already hinted at a potential shared universe this summer. Now, the studio is one step closer to making it a full-on reality.

Fox just signed a three-year, first-look deal with Simon Kinberg, a writer and producer on X-Men: Days of Future Past and the upcoming Fantastic Four movie reboot. That deal gives Kinberg the go-ahead to start up a shared universe similar to the one Marvel Studios has developed, and that DC/Warner Bros. is trying to get going.

Mark Millar Teases Potential Shared ‘X-Men’ And ‘Fantastic Four’ Marvel Cinematic Universe

FFXMen

Marvel and Disney did quite a bit of work to build a cinematic universe that culminated into one big shared movie in The Avengers, and promises to do the same many times over in the years to come.

But Disney doesn't have the film rights to every Marvel character. The X-Men and The Fantastic Four are still securely under the umbrella of Twentieth Century Fox, and if Mark Millar, the creative consultant to Fox's Marvel movies has his way, they'll have a shared movie universe of their own.

Bad News: Fraction Leaves ‘FF’ and ‘Fantastic Four’; Good News: Karl Kesel Returns To ‘Fantastic Four’

Untitled-2

 

"It sucks for me, too" is all Matt Fraction had to say about the news that he's prematurely concluding his well regarded work on Marvel's Fantastic Four and FF titles, as revealed in the publisher's solicitations for November (which will be published later today but were sent to the comics press early yesterday). The demands of Fraction's work on Inhumanity and Inhumans are such that "something had to give," according to editor Tom Brevoort. The news is a serious bummer.

Replacing Fraction on FF will be writer Lee Allred, who according to solicits will co-write with his brother, series artist Michael Allred. That FF will remain indelibly Allred is good news, as is the fact that Fantastic Four will welcome back cartoonist Karl Kesel, whose contributions to Mark Waid and Mike Wieringo's work on the title circa 2002-2005 helped make it a classic run. Kesel will collaborate with ongoing artist Mark Bagley.
