This years Fantastic Four movie was a critical and commercial failure. Panned by critics, fans and average moviegoers, the movie barely broke even, amassing $167 million in worldwide box office sales against its $120 million budget. Add to this the negative press surrounding director Josh Trank's reportedly antisocial and unprofessional behaviour during production, it really comes as no surprise that the planned sequel (originally scheduled for release July 2017) and planned connection to X-Men cinematic universe have been dropped.

According to Den of Geek 20th Century Fox have struck a deal with Marvel Studios - in return for the rights to produce an X-Men TV series the Fantastic Four, and associated characters used in the three Fantastic Four movies the studio has produced (Doctor Doom, Silver surfer and Galactus) have all returned home to Marvel Studios. Furthermore it appears that one of the three mystery movies Marvel Studios recently announced for 2020 is allegedly a Fantasic Four movie.

Although this has yet to be confirmed by Marvel Studios it all makes sense considering the failure of this years movie, Marvel Studios recent mystery schedule announcement and Fox's desire to retain and expand upon the highly succesfful X-Men movie franchise. Add to all this the recent deal Marvel Studios made with Sony Pictures to bring Spider-Man into the MCU and it all fits together, but if true can Marvel Studios really turn things around and make a success out of the Fantastic Four?
