Fox removes Fantastic Four 2 from its schedule

New, 36 comments

After Fox's Fantastic Four debuted this year to harsh reviews and underwhelming box office numbers, the studio has decided to possibly forego the planned sequel.

According to ComicBook.com, Fantastic Four 2 has completely disappeared from Fox's slate of upcoming films with no specific reason given. Although it seems blatantly obvious that the studio wants to bury the disastrous feature and try to move past it, there hasn't been any word from Fox confirming or denying that reasoning.

It's also unclear as to whether the sequel won't happen at all or has just been delayed to a later date. Fantastic Four could be a big franchise for the studio and it would make sense to just wait a little longer before attempting to do it all over again.

The sequel was originally scheduled to be released on June 9, 2017, putting it in direct competition with DC's Wonder Woman, which will hit theaters on June 23.
