Jamie Bell Recalls Fantastic Four Reboot, Calls it a Disaster

April 29, 2022

Actor Jamie Bell has outright called his 2015 superhero venture, Fantastic Four (stylized as Fant4stic Four), a disaster. Fant4stic Four was released in 2015 as an intended reboot of the early 2000s Fantastic Four films. Directed by Josh Trank, the film was supposed to tie up with Fox’s other Marvel Comics property, X-Men Series. However, upon release, Fant4stic Four was met with a highly negative reception and became a massive box-office flop. The film made merely $167 Million at the box office against a $120 Million budget, effectively ending the studio’s financial stand to release a sequel. The critics weren’t light to the film, which dropped hard to a 9% rating on Rotten Tomatoes.
