Fox to reboot Fantastic Four (quick... while we still have the rights!)

Looks like I was right. Yes, less than a day after the Disney/Marvel merger is word that Fox is indeed moving at lightning speed to reboot their various Marvel properties. First up is Fantastic Four. Frankly I rather liked the first Fantastic Four (especially the director's cut) and parts of Rise of the Silver Surfer. They were faithful in spirit and tone to the original books and they were refreshing in their emphasis on character interaction over action. Plus, the adults actually acted like adults and the characters in the second film remembered that they were in a sequel and thus didn't relearn the same lessons over and over again. Oh well, good luck regardless.

So.. this would be a re-reboot. Don't forget about this guy... Pre-boot Fantastic Four

Believe or not, I've actually seen that one. It's every bit as lousy as you've heard.
