Things are already pretty bad for Fantastic Four. It has rather poor reviews (read ours here and here), a war raging on between director and studio (with Josh Trank tweeting its their fault, and Fox saying it was his), and the film is only tracking to make $25 million by the end of its opening weekend. Fox had already penned in a date for a sequel on June 9th 2017 – but they may be backtracking on that idea.
Deadpool isn’t released until February 2016, but the red band trailer has already generated positive buzz among comic book fans, and according to The Daily Superhero we may see a sequel for it in the place of the current Fantastic Four sequel date.
It should be noted that the source of this rumour is hardly reputable, but it wouldn’t be too out-of-sight for Fox to distance themselves away from the movie following all its bad press.
Deadpool is set for release on February 5th 2016 in the UK and February 12th 2016 in the States. Reynolds and Miller will share the screen with Morena Baccarin (Gotham) as Copycat, Gina Carano (Fast & Furious 6) as Angel Dust, Ed Skrein (Game of Thrones) as Ajax, Andre Tricoteux (Seventh Son) as Colossus, Leslie Uggams (Roots) as Blind Al and newcomer Brianna Hildebrand as Negasonic Teenage Warhead.
