Matthew Vaughn Wants to Make New Fantastic Four Movie to Apologize for Others

After the success of the first X-Men film, there was a run of comic book movies. One of those was 2005’s Fantastic Four starring Jessica Alba as Sue Storm/Invisible Woman and future Captain America Chris Evans as Johnny Storm/Human Torch.

The film made enough money to warrant the follow-up Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer. That movie was panned and Marvel’s crime-fighting family didn’t hot the big screen again for 8 years.

2005’s Fantastic Four starred Chris Evans as Johnny Storm/Human Torch, Michael Chiklis as Ben Grimm/The Thing, Jessica Alba as Sue Storm/Invisible Woman and Ioan Gruffudd as Reed Richards/Mr. Fantastic.

In 2015’s Fantastic Four, the characters were played by younger actors in a darker story. It did not go well. The movie was a flop critically and financially. The failure caused the quartet to be shelved from the big screen for the time being.

Now, one of Hollywood’s fastest rising directors, Matthew Vaughn, wants to take a shot at the first family of Marvel.

During the press tour for his latest Kingsman film, Vaughn explained his interest in helming a Fantastic Four movie.

“The other one I’ve felt an obligation to do is, I wouldn’t mind maybe making a Fantastic Four film to apologize to everyone out there that maybe it didn’t go very well for them,” said Vaughn. “It’s brilliant. One of my favorites is the Fantastic Four, so maybe one day I’ll try and rectify the mistake.”

2015’s Fantastic Four starred Miles Teller as Reed Richards, Kate Mara as Sue Storm, Michael B. Jordan as Johnny Storm and Jaime Bell as Ben Grimm.

With his work on Kick-Ass, X-Men: First Class and the Kingsman films, Vaughn might be the ideal choice to finally set the franchise on the right course.

Vaughn’s Kingsman: The Golden Circle opens Sept. 22.
