Chris Evans Says Fantastic Four 3 is Unlikely

69 Comments

Let’s face in, in the canon of comic book movies, the two “Fantastic Four” films belong somewhere between Albert Pyun’s “Captain America” and Roger Corman’s, well, “Fantastic Four”. In a word, they were absolutely horrid examples of storytelling, screenwriting, acting, and directing. Basically, the only reasons to ever watch those films was to wait for Jessica Alba’s costume to fall off; or, if you weren’t prone to such lecherous concerns, you just liked the Human Torch, as played by Chris Evans, who was bar none the best thing about those two films, but even he didn’t have very much to do in the second one. Now according to Chris Evans, the possibility of a “Fantastic Four 3″ seems highly unlikely. Or at least, he hasn’t heard anything about a third one yet, and if the studio wanted to do one, wouldn’t they have said so by now?

More:

“I’m pretty sure we won’t do [another] one,” insisted “Fantastic Four” star Chris Evans, who excelled in two films as the Human Torch. “I’m assuming that one is a closed book.”

What gives? In recent months, both Jessica Alba and Michael Chiklis have expressed a strong desire to come back for “FF3,” each one even going so far as to offer up a preferred storyline.

Sure, Franklin Richards or The Puppet Master would be cool. It’s not the storylines that worries Evans, he insists, it’s the fact that they have to offer it up the storylines at all, he told MTV News.

“After the first one was released we got wind of potential titles and plots [almost immediately], and I’ve heard nothing from anyone at Fox [yet],” he grumbled. “We had all planned on doing [another] one but if there were going to be a third I think a week after the second one was released we would have heard.”

It’s probably for the best. Evans has a thriving movie career, he doesn’t need to sully it further by being associated with yet another silly movie that posits the theory of Jessica Alba as a scientist. Wow, talk about a whopper, that one. Alba can barely say the word “scientist”, much less play one.

      yeah that would be cool.
      or how about they fight ego.
      or discover the inhumans
      yeah thats my idea
      have them fight the inhumans
      in the end they become friends
      and team up to fight ego.
      or have them fight the skrulls
      or the kree.
      all those if done right would be great.

      I think the writers of the comics should do the movies, at least write them. Hollywood has ruin Wolverine with giant explosions and look at x-men huge all star cast…horrible movies. They need to stop writting the movies for the movie goers that never opened the book. remember as Twilight was a book the was backed by fans to be athentic to itself as a movie same should be as theres comics…these are older longer storys that have meant alot to many generations of us super geeks. No more Eric formans being Venom or Deadpool with his mouth sown shut awww! btw did we really need a Green Laturn movie?

    Yeah I totally agree with those ideas!!!! I’d really love to see a third featuring one of those plotlines. I know they didn’t do all that great at the box office, but I for one still enjoyed both the FF films nonetheless…

    The FF films did very well at the box office–$154 million for #1 and $132 million for #2. Not ultra-blockbuster Transformers dough, but more than the vast majority of films that come out. Problem is they spent too much money making them. These were comparably small scale stories that didn’t need that much money thrown at them. But I still liked them.
    In fact, the only problem I had with the FF movies was the mishandling and miscasting of Dr. Doom. Other than that misstep, I think they were true to the spirit (and often the letter) of the original comics. Their bad rep is totally overblown by the fanboy community.
    Both were better than that confused, ADD-ridden Spiderman 3.
