Why is Marvel so committed to making a Fantastic Four movie? They aren't exactly everyone's favorite superheroes. People do like Doctor Doom, though, judging by /co/ constantly fawning over the crazy despot with very unique fashion sense.

Marvel doesn't own the rights to the FF movies.

I think this is how it is:

Sony - Spider-Man

Fox - X-Men and Fantastic Four

Marvel/Disney - Everything else


This reboot is going to be a trainwreck, just like the new Spider-Man movies. It was only made so that the rights wouldn't revert back to Marvel.

This sums up my thoughts on it, and probably most of the comic book readership's as well. I don't know why Fox is so committed to this franchise, it isn't X-men, and is pretty forgettable in comparison to most other franchises. The only good thing I have seen from the Fantastic Four recently, was that cartoon that aired about a decade or something ago.

Yeah. I find it funny that when we agree on something, it is usually something bad.

Also, I can't figure out why if Disney bought Marvel, why the movie rights would still be in the hands of other corporations, logically all of the rights should fall into the hands of the original creators of Marvel and Disney who owns them.

*shrugs* Oh well...

They make this movie only to keep the rights for themselves. Fox is in a bad relationship with Marvel studios. They are literally holding the FF hostages.

When was the last time we saw an X-men or a FF cartoon? This probably isn't a simple coincidence.

Jesus is Fox stupid. They could be making MONEY off of their properties, but instead only hold onto them out of spite while wasting money on another Fantastic Four movie... Their primary purpose is pleasing the shareholders, which requires that they please the customers. I don't see how this accomplishes either...

I don't understand why one would take a hostage if that hostage has no worth.

There's probably a lot of things we agree on, but since we usually only cross paths in the politics threads, they never come up.

Because Marvel sold the rights to the other companies. It's not a continuous thing that gets renewed every couple years. The only caveat is that part of the deal was that the rights revert to Marvel if Fox doesn't utilize them within a certain number of years. But that's all. Marvel has no legal authority whatsoever over the movie rights of the Fantastic Four and X-Men.

Remember that the Fox and Sony deals were inked when Marvel was literally bankrupt and had to raise cash to become solvent in the late 90s. They are problems now but the alternative was being bought out entirely when they couldn't square up their debts.

I do like how Marvel is giving Fox the middle finger over this by including Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch in Age of Ultron. They are also Avengers in the comics, so as long as no one says something like "Mutant" or "Magneto", Fox can't do jack shit about it.

It's funny, because it's actually pretty fun to play as the Fantastic Four characters in games like Marvel Ultimate Alliance and even LEGO Marvel. They also had a decent representation on the Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes show, though perhaps this is because they were used sparingly.

You know who I want to see? Super Skrull. Freakin' Super Skrull. But not necessarily in relation to the Fantastic Four, you know?

Damn, when I was a small kid reading through my dad's collection of vintage comic books, the FF were always my favorite. I fact, you could probably trace my interest in science back to Reed Richards, doing crazy experiments in the N-Zone.

Now, hearing all this shit just makes me sad

I don't understand the thought process behind "we're making a movie about the Fantastic Four, the book that gave us Galactus, the Silver Surfer, Annihilus, the Negative Zone, the Watcher, the Ultimate Nullifier, and basically every other really weird space thing in Marvel. Let's get the guy who directed Chronicle."

The balance between weird high-concept adventures and the friction of the family dynamics IS a part of the basic concept, but both halves are supposed to be optimistic and positive, not gritty and realistic. They get into dangerous situations but they find their way out by working together. They fight with each other but work things out because they are first and foremost a family. They're not accident survivors getting over a traumatic event.

Yeeeah this is just upsetting... The things Marvel could do with Doctor Doom in there hands would be epic :'(.

Sony are thinking about making a movie thats main character is a Young Aunt May to boot. It does piss me off a bit because all they have to do is work together with Marvel let them use the likes of Spider man for a movie and they would make so much money >.<.
