When Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer made less than the original, it was a sign that maybe Fantastic Four wasn’t the franchise Fox wanted it to be. We are nearly a year on and there has been no movement from Fox to complete a trilogy. The fact that Marvels future line-up doesn’t contain the word ‘Fantastic’ suggests that another film may not happen.
MTV News caught up with Michael Chiklis, who played The Thing in both films, and asked him if he’d heard anything about possibly reprising his role, to which the actor responded:
“No one’s really given it the kibosh to me, but the silence has been deafening. The fact that no one’s mentioned it or asked a question says that, more than likely, that’s not going to happen. I know that both of them were tremendously successful from a box office standpoint, but we’ve all moved on into other areas and other films.”
I guess it’s safe to say Fantastic Four 3 will not be happen. (Not that many people will miss it anyway)
