Producer Simon Kinberg on Plans for a 'Fantastic Four' Sequel

Producer Simon Kinberg on Plans for a 'Fantastic Four' Sequel”

With Logan coming out next week, Deadpool 2 in the scripting stage and at least two other X-Men related movies going into production this year, there are still a couple of other Marvel Comics properties owned by Fox whose futures have been in question. There have been rumours of titles, shooting dates, actors returning, and more.

The less said about X-Men: The Last Stand, the better off we all will be.

As far as casting goes, Sophie Turner is expected to reprise her role as Jean Grey with Jennifer Lawrence, Michael Fassbender, and James McAvoy, rumored to also be making a return.

Though no official offer has been made yet, sources say that screenwriter and producer Simon Kinberg is being eyed as the new director for the next "X-Men" movie, according to a report from Slash Film.

That left the forthcoming Gambit movie to act as the first real attempt to build an X-Men Cinematic Universe.

While X-Men: Apocalypse certainly wasn't the film many fans were hoping for, it was ultimately a box office success and earned almost $550 million at the worldwide box office. You could easily assume these were X-Men meetings and that the summer would be when filming would start.

To be blunt, while the reboot does have a talented cast, I think audiences don't want to keep seeing Fantastic Four movies in the vein of a gritty, realistic take of teenagers who get superpowers.

"It's in active development". The process has been that Channing [Tatum] is as determined about getting the character right as Ryan Reynolds was about Deadpool and Hugh [Jackman] was about this Logan movie.

"We know that when we get those right, the movie succeeds so we want to make sure we get Gambit right because we want him to be the beginning of a whole new franchise". It has changed directors several times, suffered script rewrites and was at one point pulled off Fox's release schedule completely.

All the project seemed to need was a director and writer/producer Simon Kinberg came in as a flawless fit. Although "X-Men: Apocalypse" was a blockbuster hit when it was released a year ago, critics slammed the latest instalment in the "X-Men" franchise, via a report from Roger Ebert.
