I’m not sure if I would describe Fox’s latest Fantastic Four a ‘highly anticipated’ film for the summer, but there was certainly a lot of curiosity around it. Sure the 2005 and 2007 Tim Story versions fell pretty flat but they also came out before the Marvel Studios juggernaut had been launched. The landscape of the mid-2000s superhero genre was still pretty unstable so the standard was pretty low. Now just a short 10 years later and our expectations are totally different. As many of you heard, the critics were not kind to Josh Trank’s reboot but were they being overly critical? Joined by my nerdy friends Jeff (@NerdsInRecovery) and Jennifer (@jennxlai), we first share are thoughts pre-movie about our expectations, then dive into the aftermath right after the credits rolled. There will be spoilers (and blood). Enjoy!
