Fantastic Four 2 is a cancelled sequel to 2015's Fantastic Four and it was slated to be released by 20th Century Fox in the Summer of 2017.
The plot is currently unknown.
Why It Was Cancelled
- Fantastic Four 2 was cancelled due to the box office failure and extremely poor reception of 2015's Fantastic Four.
- After the film got panned by critics and viewers and bombed at the box office, Fantastic Four director Josh Trank tweeted and said that he would never direct a superhero movie or a another blockbuster film ever again and has since disowned the movie entirely.
- Fantastic Four director Josh Trank ended up being blacklisted after reports of his unprofessional and bizarre behavior on set of Fantastic Four including reportedly bullying Kate Mara during filming and was ultimately fired from directing a Star Wars Boba Fett spin-off film due to his behaviour during production of Fantastic Four and for bullying Kate Mara. Trank eventually returned to the spotlight after directing Capone with Tom Hardy and an upcoming television series about the CIA with Capone actor Tom Hardy attached to the project.
- Its July 2017 release was later taken by War for the Planet of the Apes.
- In 2018, one of its actors Michael B. Jordan later redeemed with his role as the main antagonist Erik Killmonger in the 2018 MCU smash-hit Black Panther.
- The film was permanently cancelled. However, there is a possible chance of a second reboot to the franchise; in December 2017, The Walt Disney Company agreed to a $52.4 billion dollar acquirement of 21st Century Fox and most of its assets with Disney CEO Bob Iger announcing their intention to integrate the Fantastic Four into the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
- The 2015 Fantastic Four film is stand-alone.
- Fox supposedly set up a proposed crossover with the X-Men film series.
