Marvel’s 1994 The Fantastic Four (Unreleased Movie)

The original Fantastic Four is hilariously awful, and is now on YouTube in its entirety

    1. That seems to be accurate.

      FF was my favorite comic when I was a kid. I especially loved Dr. Doom and the storyline that introduced the Silver Surfer as the herald of Galactus.

      But the movies pretty much already screwed all of that that up, and it seems to be FUBAR.

    2. They made an excellent FF movie!

      Matthew McConaughey was Reed, Anne Hathaway was Sue, Wes Bentley was Johnny, David Gyasi was Ben. And Matt Damon was Dr. Doom! (or Annihilus, you pick)

      It even had HERBIE in it.

  1. Actually, they have made two really good Fantastic 4 movies, only they changed the titles to “The Incredibles” and “The Incredibles 2.”

    Seriously though, I have complete confidence in Kevin Feige and Marvel to deliver a really good Fantastic 4 film. From Marvel’s perspective though I think the characters they are most excited to acquire are Dr. Doom, Galactus, and Kang, since they need post Thanos villains.

    If it were up to me, I would add the Fantastic 4 to the MCU either by giving them a present day origin movie or perhaps better set it in the 1960’s but contrive some explanation why they haven’t aged and hadn’t been seen in 50 years. Lost in the negative zone? I understand Peyton Reed (Ant Man and Ant Man & the Wasp) has wanted to do a FF movie for a long time. I would set X-Men films in a separate universe however. I think the mutant rights themes would be a bad fit for the lighter themed MCU. But in 4 or 5 years you have an Avengers vs X-Men movie with some multiverse hopping. Of course, if there are any X-Men characters they want to put into the MCU they won’t have to negotiate an Ego – Negasonic trade.
