Hey Hollywood, did your first one (or two) superhero movies in a franchise suck? Why not try a reboot? They’re all the rage right now, and it worked for Batman, therefore you’re next movie will undoubtedly make $500 million dollars.
But in reality, the superhero “reboot” is quickly becoming the latest trend because well, frankly we’re running out of superheroes. Therefore, it’s time to go back and take a mulligan on some of the franchises that didn’t pull their weight. The Hulk tried (and failed), the Punisher tried (and failed) and now it’s the Fantastic Four’s turn (and they will fail).
Supposedly they want it to be more edgy (like Iron Man) and darker (like The Dark Knight) and will featured an “entirely new cast and direction.” So if you’re tuning in hoping to see Jessica Alba in some state of undress again, you will be sorely disappointed.
Does it really even matter if this franchise gets a new cast and direction? Is anyone ever going to be that excited about a Fantastic Four movie? The studios seem to think someone will be.
Next on the reboot docket? Daredevil and Superman, again. God, at this rate I’ll actually be looking forward to the Thor movie.
