Why Do Fantastic Four Movies Always Suck?

    Iron Man, Doctor Strange, Ant-Man, and the Guardians of the Galaxy; second and third tier Marvel Comics properties all have great, popular movie franchises. While it’s awesome to have so many enjoyable comic book films doing justice to the source material, it makes it extra glaring when they don’t. One such omission is Marvel’s first family, the Fantastic Four.

    We can’t say 2oth Century Fox hasn’t tried. They’ve made three Fantastic Four movies at this point. All three films are universally maligned by fans (and critics) for one central reason; they miss the spirit of who the Fantastic Four are and what have made them appealing to fans in the first place.

    Avid YouTuber, Patrick (h) Willems sums up everything quite nicely in his video essay, “How to Make a Good Fantastic Four Movie.” Check out his creative criticisms below, and let us know what you think in the comments section.
