This is where the Fantastic Four cinema curse began You definitely don’t know this Marvel movie! — Cinema News

The Fantastic Four haven’t had it easy in cinemas so far: 2005’s » Fantastic Four » and its sequel » Fantastic Four: Rise Of The Silver Surfer » are old-fashioned, silly superhero films that can be dismissed as harmless at best, but are actually comic pickles must stamp. And » Fantastic Four » from 2015 even undercuts the two predecessors again, after all, nothing at all fits together in the reboot, which started with great ambitions.

But the long ordeal of the Fantastic Family did not just begin in the 2000s: A “Fantastic Four” film was supposed to be released in cinemas as early as 1994, but was surprisingly canceled a week before it was released in cinemas (!).

The Crazy Story of «Fantastic Four» (1994)

German film producer Bernd Eichinger and US B-movie legend Roger Corman are responsible for this whole number . Eichinger acquired the rights to the Fantastic Four in the 1980s and eventually produced his Fantastic Four with Corman in the early 1990s for a very modest budget of around a million dollars.

A popular theory is that the film was only produced so that Eichinger could keep the rights to the Fantastic Four , which would otherwise have reverted to Marvel. However, Eichinger and Corman have consistently denied this, saying instead that Marvel was concerned that a cheap Fantastic Four movie would damage the brand’s reputation.

Entertaining trash

In the video above, our YouTube moderator and Marvel expert Sebastian gives you an overview of the colorful history of the film. But more importantly, he introduces you to the plot of «Fantastic Four» and tells you how he liked the film.

Compared to many a Marvel pickle that he watched as part of the «Marvel mal anders» series, «Fantastic Four» (1994) is definitely one of the better films for Sebastian : loving trash with a suitable one, good cast, comic-accurate costumes and superpowers as well as numerous Marvel Easter Eggs.

Can Marvel Break the Fantastic Four Curse?

It remains to be seen whether Marvel will be able to break the curse of the «Fantastic Four» films at some point. Things looked pretty good for a long time, because under the supervision of MCU mastermind Kevin Feige , «Spider-Man: No Way Home» director Jon Watts was supposed to be shooting a new «Fantastic Four» .

However, in April 2022, Watts dropped out of the project because after three Spider-Man films in seven years, he needed a well-deserved Marvel break (to devote himself to a Star Wars series instead ). Let’s hope that «Fantastic Four» gets back on track quickly and, despite Watts’ departure, a really good film about the superhero families finally comes to the cinemas…
