We’re just a little over a week out from the new Fantastic Four movie being released, and with the lack of buzz I’m not sure how this movie is honestly going to do. Marvel has cancelled the Fantastic Four books, so the big screen is the only outlet that the Fantastic Four still has to be relevant on. Bryan Singer doesn’t even give a confidant statement when talking to Yahoo! Movies about a possible X-Men crossover.
We’ll have to see how the films turn out…To just say you’re going to do it would be a mistake, you have to see how the films evolve before you make that decision to completely commit to that
If these movies were kids, then directors like Singer would be considered the parent. With that being said, there’s no parent that’s going to bad mouth their own kid. So the statement he gave was just a nice way of saying, my movie will probably do fine but I can’t say the same about the Fantastic Four.
Even if the Fantastic Four doesn’t make all the money that they hope it will, there is still one person who can bring everyone together and that person is Deadpool. I may be a little bias, but don’t let that detour you. Deadpool is getting higher praise than the Fantastic Four movie coming out next week and that’s only based on some pictures and a leaked Comic Con clip. Hugh Jackman said he wouldn’t play Wolverine after the characters third solo movie, but he also said that he would love to see Wolverine and Deadpool together in another movie. When it comes to Deadpool being the linchpin, the Fantastic Four take the furthest seat back becaues they’re just there for the ride, it’s all about X-Men and Deadpool. The only bad thing is that FOX isn’t really big on post credit scenes, so if it isn’t said or shown in the film it won’t happen. Once Deadpool comes out and makes more money than any other Fox movie, he’ll start popping up here and there like he does in Marvel variant covers.
