Fantastic Four Ready to Reboot

As if throwing down the gauntlet after the news that Disney is going to acquire Marvel, Fox has let it be known throughout the land that it’s going to reboot their Fantastic Four franchise. Too soon? Nah – it’s never too soon for a reboot.

And who better to put at the head of this production than Akiva Goldsman, the talented man who wrote Batman Forever and Batman & Robin? Michael Green is going to pen the script. He previously wrote the new Green Lantern script and has been an executive producer and writer on Heroes.

Variety says this about the reboot:

Though Marvel Entertainment owns and finances properties like Iron Man and Thor, Fox controls Fantastic Four in perpetuity -- as long as it continues making the films. Fox has the same arrangement on Marvel Comics properties X-Men, Daredevil and Silver Surfer. Marvel is a producer and financial participant through a licensing agreement.

It’s uncertain as to whether or not the people who made the last two films will have anything to do with the new ones, though common sense suggests if the franchise is getting rebooted, new talent will be sought.

Is there anyone out there who’s up for more Fantastic Four movies? Did the first two sour you on the experience? Now that The Dark Knight and Iron Man have set the standard for what edgy and less edgy comic book movies should be like, studios are going to be pulling out their old franchises and dusting them off.

But just ‘cause they can reboot something, should they?
