fantatastic-four-pg-rating-bigIn the wake of breaking business news yesterday about Disney’s decision to buy Marvel Entertainment for $4 billion, we’re already seeing a headline that runs contrary to our 10 possible Disney/Marvel crossovers.

20th Century Fox, not Disney, has announced plans for another Fantastic Four film with a new flick produced by Akiva Goldsman and written by Michael Green.

Goldsman is currently producing movies based on DC properties “Jonah Hex” and “The Losers,” while Green is co-writing “Green Lantern” starring Ryan Reynolds and is the co-executive producer of “Heroes.”

Neither of the previous two Tim Story-directed Fantastic Four fims have been particularly good, nor have they received particularly good reviews.

There is no word on whether or not Ioan Gruffudd, Jessica Alba, Chris Evans and Michael Chiklis will return for a third go around.

    It’s supposed to be a reboot, not a sequel. The reasoning behind it is that if they don’t produce another film, the rights may revert to Marvel (and thus Disney). I don’t expect this film to be any better than the others. The only decent movie Fox made based on comic book properties was X-2, and that only stands out because of how lackluster the first one was and how crappy the third was.
