Due to the huge success of Marvel Studios recently, the other studios owning the rights to Marvel characters have decided to reboot everything they can before they lose the rights. The first of these reboots was Sony’s The Amazing Spider-Man, which has been a great success.
Twentieth Century Fox hopes to be as lucky when they reboot the Fantastic Four and Daredevil. They got good news this week when Chronicle director Josh Trank moved into final negotiations to helm the new Fantastic Four movie. The film will be released after the next two X-Men movies (sequels for Origins: Wolverine and First Class).
But it’s not all good news for Fox as the studio lost their director for the new Daredevil movie, David Slade (best known for The Twilight Saga: Eclipse). While the script is ready, Fox has to hurry to sign on a new director for the Daredevil reboot if they want to get it into production before they lose the rights.
Unlike the aforementioned Spider-Man, neither the original Fantastic Four nor Daredevil franchises were extremely successful. How do you think the studio could improve the movies this time? Better stories? Better casting? Or is it even worth it to try rebooting them at all? Comment below and tweet your thoughts to @HollyFangirlish.
