Josh Trank’s 2015 Fantastic Four reboot is now available on Disney Plus.
Fans that have been waiting for Disney to add their 20th Century Fox/Marvel catalogue to the Disney Plus streaming service are finally getting their wish. Well, sort of. Today, Disney added Josh Trank’s Fantastic Four movie to Disney Plus which probably won’t excite fans that much.
Fantastic Four was the subject of controversy even before the cameras began to roll. Michael B. Jordan was cast as a race swapped Johnny Storm and Toby Kebbell was cast as a very different Doctor Doom. All of these changes made fans a bit cautious about the movie, and ultimately the film was a critical and commercial failure. So, its release on Disney Plus is sure to leave fans underwhelmed.
Trank recently opened up about his infamous battle with Fox over Fantastic Four while promoting his new film Capone. The director expressed his regret for tweeting out his frustration over his vision for the project not coming to fruition. Despite the project being ripped from his hands, Trank has said there isn’t a need for his cut of the film to ever be released to the public.
