The new Fantastic Four movie from 20th Century Fox Studios quickly became a polarizing prospect. From its initial announcement, the "die hard comic book fans" took sides. "Too soon...", "Give it back to Marvel/Disney...", "Why are they rebooting another superhero film..", were just some of the out cries from fans. But that did not stop 20th Century Fox from pushing forward with Josh Trank in the director's chair.
Josh Trank previously directed, Chronicle(2012) for 20th Century Fox which was praised as a great success for the studio and for the young director. As such, hopes were running high for a reboot/relaunch of "Marvel's First Family". The day before the domestic release, Trank took to social media, distancing himself from the film and placing blame on 20th Century Fox for the negative reviews. Who is to blame? Who watched the new Fantastic Four movie?
