5 Reasons The Fantastic Four Should Stick Around
As Marvel and Fox continue to butt heads over their licences and treatment of their heroes, rumours are abound of what steps Marvel will take to damage the new film reboot’s success. With more and more news emerging suggesting that director Josh Trank is not even paying lip service to the very comics his film is based upon, even thematically opposing their very nature, it has been suggested that Marvel may put the title on hiatus. Some suggest that they may even go further than this, killing off their Ultimate incarnation to try and ruin Fox’s box office income.
