Fantastic Four 2 is a cancelled sequel to 2015's Fantastic Four and it was slated to be released by 20th Century Fox in the summer of 2017.
Why It Was Cancelled
- Fantastic Four 2 was cancelled due to the box office failure and extremely poor reception of 2015's Fantastic Four.
- Its July 2017 release was later taken by War for the Planet of the Apes.
- The film was permanently cancelled. However, there is a possible chance of a second reboot to the franchise; in December 2017, The Walt Disney Company agreed to a $52.4 billion dollar acquirement of 21st Century Fox and most of its assets, with Disney CEO Bob Iger announcing their intention to integrate the Fantastic Four into the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
- Fox supposedly set up a proposed crossover with the X-Men film series.
