30 Movie Franchises That Started But Never Finished
No one can seem to figure out how to make the Fantastic Four work on screen. In 2015, an earnest attempt was made to launch the series as a franchise, but that attempt ended in disaster. The version of Fantastic Four that landed in theaters was a garbled mess. Its plot was incoherent, as were the motivations of its characters.
It’s clear that whatever director Josh Trank‘s vision for the film was, it wasn’t translated in the final cut. Instead, the movie fails to be either logical or entertaining. A sequel was never going to be in the cards, even if the studio wanted one.
