With the bomb now dropped and the damage done, you can’t throw a rock at the Internet without hitting an article explaining “why Fantastic Four bombed”. Some sites blame Josh Trank. Others blame Fox. A majority are now saying that it was the two of them together. But no matter what, Marvel’s first family is in worse shape than they were in 2007 after Rise of the Silver Surfer came out (a movie that did BETTER than this movie did critically and commercially).

Marvel Studios has been having “talks” with Sony about using Spider-Man in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
According to IGN, these talks are in very early negotiations, and while it’s entirely possible that this could all fall apart, it doesn’t make me any less excited.
