The Fantastic Four franchise has been a staple of comic book culture since the 1960s, and its popularity has only grown since then. However, the franchise’s luck ran out in 2015 when 20th Century Fox released the latest installment of the franchise, Fantastic Four. The film was a critical and commercial failure, and it seemed to spell the end of the franchise.

The film was met with harsh reviews from critics and audiences alike, and it failed to make a significant impact at the box office. It was a huge disappointment for 20th Century Fox, and it seemed to spell the end of the franchise. As a result, plans for a potential third Fantastic Four film and a Silver Surfer spin-off film were cancelled.

The reasons for the film’s failure are numerous. The film was criticized for its lack of originality, its reliance on CGI, and its lack of respect for the source material. The film was also plagued by reports of behind-the-scenes drama, with director Josh Trank publicly criticizing the studio for interfering with his vision for the film.

The failure of Fantastic Four has been a major setback for the franchise, and it has put a damper on the hopes of fans who were looking forward to seeing more of the characters on the big screen. While it is possible that the franchise could be revived in the future, it seems unlikely that 20th Century Fox will be willing to take another chance on the property anytime soon. For now, it looks like the Fantastic Four will remain on the shelf, at least until a new studio is willing to take a chance on them.
