FANTASTIC FOUR Writer Reveals What Went Wrong With 2015 Reboot; Shares Dream MCU Project After MOON KNIGHT

2015's Fantastic Four reboot was an unmitigated disaster, and writer Jeremy Slater has now shared his take on what went wrong. The Moon Knight scribe also names his dream MCU project for down the line...

Fantastic Four was released in 2015 to negative reviews and one of the worst opening weekends in comic book movie history. It was clear the reboot was put through the wringer, with producer Simon Kinberg stepping in to reshoot half the movie, turning it into an unmitigated disaster.

We've never quite had the full story of what happened, but we know director Josh Trank clashed with Kinberg and Fox over his vision for Marvel's First Family and the movie promised by that teaser never materialised. Moon Knight Head Writer Jeremy Slater penned the screenplay for Fantastic Four at one point, of course, and has now shared his take on Twitter as to why his vision clashed with Trank's. 

"Well, most of my problems with Fantastic Four stemmed from the fact that I was trying to write it like an MCU movie," he explained, "which wasn't what the director wanted." As for whether he'd like to be involved with the upcoming Marvel Studios reboot, Slater was quick to dismiss the notion. "Trust me, they don't need my stink on another Fantastic Four. Plus, the Marvel creative execs on the project are all brilliant. It's going to be awesome."

As well as Moon Knight, Slater has moved on to The Umbrella Academy, but in terms of his dream project for Marvel Studios, the writer named Excalibur. Clearly, he's keen to do something with Kitty Pryde and Nightcrawler, but if that leads to Captain Britain's introduction, sign us up!

Spider-Man: No Way Home director Jon Watts remains attached to helm Fantastic Four for Marvel Studios, and it's believed the movie will arrive in theaters sometime in 2024.
