Have you ever watched a bad film and wondered how the creators felt about it? Many times, they tend to dodge questions about the audience’s reactions. One writer decided to come forward with a sincere apology.

Just Call For Four

The 2015 reboot of Fantastic Four was plagued with controversies. From questionable casting decisions to reshoots, Marvel fans weren’t having it. In its first weekend, the film only managed to earn $25.6 million at the box office.

This is one of the lowest opening weekends for a major superhero film ever. In the end, the studio managed to lose $100 million from its release.

Beyond Darkness… Beyond Fear… Lies The Apologies

Over on Twitter, writer Jeremy Slater apologized to fans that were angry with the movie. “When I finally got my foot in the door, I only had three dream projects on my bucket list. One was Marvel (umm…sorry about that one, guys), one was Star Wars, and the third, of course, was Stephen King. Any one of those jobs would let me die a happy man,” he stated. Fantastic Four was his first major project in Hollywood.

He’s not the only one that apologized for the flick. Before the film’s release, director Josh Trank issued a since deleted apology on Twitter. “A year ago I had a fantastic version of this, and it would’ve received great reviews. You’ll probably never see it. That’s reality though,” he stated.

Change Is Coming

Fans of the superhero family are looking at this current Fox/Disney merger very closely. It’s no secret that all of them want the team to be properly introduced in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Director Matthew Vaughn, who was a producer on the 2015 film, wants to take full control of a possible Fantastic Four reboot.

“I wouldn’t mind maybe making a Fantastic Four film to apologize to everyone out there that maybe it didn’t go very well for them,” he told Cinemablend. One thing is certain about the 2015 Fantastic Four film: apologies are coming from every angle.
