Second, it's apparently impossible to make a good Fantastic Four movie — or, at least, Fox hasn't worked out how to do it, leaving that property essentially dead in terms of a big-screen franchise.
That second one feels particularly sad, when you consider the strength of the characters contained inside the Fantastic Four property. Not the eponymous quartet itself — indeed, it could be argued that, Ben Grimm aside, the Fantastic Four are the least interesting characters in the entire FF mythology — but everyone that surrounds it: Galactus and the Silver Surfer. Doctor Doom. The Skrulls and the Kree. The Impossible Man, the Puppet Master, the Mole Man and so on — there is an army of potential trapped inside a franchise that seems destined to go nowhere.

There may, of course, be practical reasons why this cannot be the case — perhaps restrictions on the usage of particular characters under specific licenses, or a clause simply demanding that the FF and X-Men characters are never to be mixed — but, if not, it seems like a solution to a number of problems for Fox, beyond simply answering the question "Is there a way we rescue Annihilus and the Negative Zone from cinematic purgatory?"Read more at HollywoodReporter
