Before Fantastic Four opened to dismal box office and even more dismal reviews, 20th Century Fox attempted to combat the bad buzz surrounding the film by greenlighting a sequel. It was a vote of confidence – they were prepared to stick with this cast moving forward. Then everyone saw the final trainwreck and the internet proceeded to pick over the film’s fascinating corpse in a desperate attempt to figure out what happened with this production. We all assumed that announced sequel was dead and buried. We were wrong.

Fox Reportedly Still Moving Ahead With ‘Fantastic Four 2’

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.

This would lend credence to recent rumors that Fox is looking to set up an X-Men and Fantastic Four crossover film down the line.

Disney continues to engage other major studio releases in a game of chicken that it will always win. With every new Marvel or Star Wars film scheduled for release, there comes the subsequent announcement that another major film has been pushed back — no one wants to compete with these heavyweights. Thanks to yesterday’s major Star Wars announcement regarding their first standalone film, Rogue One, and the new release date for Episode VIII, Fox has pushed the release date of Fantastic Four 2 back, as expected.

Twentieth Century Fox must be happy with 'Fantastic Four,' if the studio is already planning 'Fantastic Four 2,' right?
A rumor circulated recently claiming that Fox was looking to completely start over on the rebooted superhero film with an entirely new cast and crew, though we quickly debunked that one. To further prove how serious they are about their upcoming slate of Marvel movies, the studio set release dates for 'Fantastic Four 2,' 'Wolverine 3' and one untitled Marvel movie.
