Here’s another warning that you’re about to embark into spoiler territory. And there’s a good chance many of you have come over directly. So here’s a huge picture of a hot dog to block any spoilers you may not want to see.
“No more super heroes for a while. Just science. And no more Mister Fantastic…. Just Dad.”
This is usually the part where you start yelling at the monitor and blame Fox for failing to produce a quality movie and not willing to sell the rights back to Marvel. However, in a recent interview, Marvel executive editor Tom Brevoort said that the problems with Fox were not necessarily the main reason the Fantastic Four were no longer in the Marvel lineup.
“Fantastic Four has been one of those books that, for a number of years, has been effectively taken for granted. It’s been considered stodgy, or old school, or some people see it as a thing that’s there and people are comfortable because it’s there, but they’re not particularly passionate about it. So we’re not going to have that book for a while.”
There’s a saying that goes, “Absence makes the heart grow fonder.” And it seems that this is what Marvel is going for. It doesn’t look like this goodbye will be forever. It’s more like the Richards family will be going on an extended family vacation. Now the question is when will fans see them again? While the big wigs may not own up to it, there’s a good chance that as long as the movie rights remain at Fox, there’s no way they’ll be back at Marvel at the same time.
