Marvel movies, before the MCU took a more interconnected approach, were very hit-or-miss. Films such as Elektra, Daredevil and The Punisher were all critical flops. However, films such as Fantastic Four and the Blade trilogy were tremendous successes.
Disney+, the streaming service that hosts all the MCU films for streaming, has taken off two Marvel films off its catalogues. Those films are Fantastic Four (2005) and Fantastic Four 2: Rise of The Silver Surfer (2007).
Both the films opened up to polarizing reviews by the critics, while crossing $300 million in their box office collections. A reboot of the series was released by 21st Century Fox in 2015, which was bombed by critics and garnered half of what the previous films made.
Another Fantastic Four reboot was teased by the Marvel Studios in their “Marvel Studios Celebrates The Movies” video. After Disney acquired 21st Century Fox, the Fantastic Four can finally appear in the MCU.
Disney+ at the moment only has thee 2015 Fantastic Four reboot, alongside the two animated series based on the characters from the ’90s and 2000s. It remains to be seen whether the films will come back or not.
