‘Fantastic Four’ Director Offers Hilarious Response To Twitter Comment That ‘No Superhero Movie Fails’

As “Captain Marvel” burns up the box office with a record-breaking opening weekend, it’s important to remember that not all Marvel superhero movies have been blockbusters.

That came through loud and clear when director Josh Trank responded to a comment by fellow director Joseph Kahn.

Kahn, whose films include “Torque” and “Bodied”, tweeted, “No superhero movie fails.”

Trank, whose 2015 “Fantastic Four” movie was a critical and commercial dud, offered a hilarious response:

The 2015 film, based on the Stan Lee-created superhero quartet, was met with roundly negative reviews and brought in a mere $56 million at the domestic box office, while Trank distanced himself from the film before it even came out, hinting that studio interference led to a very different film than the one he wanted viewers to see.

“A year ago I had a fantastic version of this,” he tweeted ahead of the film’s release. “And it would’ve received great reviews. You’ll probably never see it. That’s reality though.”
