Director Josh Trank has tweeted and since deleted a post on Twitter that blames Fox for ruining his Fantastic Four movie.
Fantastic Four currently sits at only a 9% positive rating on Rotten Tomatoes as reviews have been absolutely crushing the movie. Our own review offered to not even bother spending your money to go see it. Just yesterday also saw Hollywood producer Adi Shankar offer he would like to remake Fantastic Four and explained how Fox missed the boat on a potential shared FF/X-Men universe.
Regarding Trank, he posted: "A year ago I had a fantastic version of this. And it would've recieved great reviews. You’ll probably never see it. That’s reality though."
There have been rumors about production woes regarding Trank and Fox for some time, with it also mentioned reshoots were filmed without Tranks input. If Trank's words are anything to go by, it seems Trank didn't have much or anything to do with the final cut of the movie.
Here is the tweet:
"Fantastic Four" is currently in theaters.
FANTASTIC FOUR, a contemporary re-imagining of Marvel’s original and longest-running superhero team, centers on four young outsiders who teleport to an alternate and dangerous universe, which alters their physical form in shocking ways.
