Douchebag apotheosis Chris Evans recently spoke about the future of the Fantastic Four film franchise with his most trusted news source, MTV News. Things don't look so good for Marvel's first family of film. Apparently harsh criticism of the first two entries has sufficiently discouraged the studio and Evans:
“I’m pretty sure we won’t do [another] one,” insisted “Fantastic Four” star Chris Evans, who excelled in two films as the Human Torch. “I’m assuming that one is a closed book.”
Shame. You mean to tell me there wasn't anything but universal praise for the inspired choices made in Fantastic Four and Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer? Mr. Fantastic using his malleable form to reach toilet paper and dance in a nightclub were pretty great scenes. As was every opportunity found to get Jessica Alba in her underwear. And Johnny Storm extreme snowboarding was so awesome! I know I for one really appreciated Galactus being apapted from his normal comic book form into the less dynamic and more palatable form of a goddamn cloud.
Rest in peace, Fantastic Four film franchise. You will be missed.
