Default Fantastic 4-1994 Version

Yes in 1994 they tried to make a "cheapie" verion that was eventually deemed "unreleasable."

OK, that had to be for a TV movie. That was on the same production scale as The Flash.

lol, although The Thing did look a lot like the one from the previous 2 movies, just bigger lips. If that is possible for a rock.

Actually, the 1994 film was never intended to be released. It was a ploy by the filmmakers to retain the rights because they were losing time and had to begin production by a certain date. The cast and crew didn't know about this.

I had high hopes for the 2005 FF and judging by its box office so did a lot of people. But, I was left..wanting. Then came the green light for the sequel and I hoped the next FF movie would feature the Silver Surfer and Galactus.

When "Fantastic Four: The Rise of the Silver Surfer" was announced, I hoped the the filmmakers would nail it this time. Sadly,they nailed it by ending the series.

As a kid it was one of my favorite titles during the era of Jack "The King" Kirby. Handled the right way it could have been epic.

That kinda is Fox's fault.

They put together a sub-par cast, and a ridiculous story.

Studios think that just because the movie is based on a comic, it will make 100's of millions of dollars. But they are wrong, they actually have to put some effort in to it.

Spiderman was done well, and even Superman Returns was OK. But must others just plan suck.

Sad fact is FF will never again see the wide screen.

The FF films, yes could have been alot better. But I think it's a storyline that does not lend itself well to mass audience movigoing format.

Spiderman is as good as it is because of Sam Rami's directing.

Plus, Spiderman had a huge movie feel to it.

FF was kind of almost a Sci-Fi channel movie of the week.

But, that is what a lot of studios did with comic book characters when bringing them to the bog screen.

Although, I did like The Punisher. That movie was dark and full of anger, it was great. But, I think most people disliked it.
