Director Josh Trank shared a hilarious image on Twitter using the Avenge The Fallen tagline from Avengers: Endgame for his failed Fantastic Four reboot.
To this point in time, it’s an understatement to say that Josh Trank doesn’t like his Fantastic Four film. Josh Trank’s said again and again that the film went under several issues while filming and production so the version that was released in theaters was a disaster. Josh Trank constantly throws shade at his own film and its usual to see him trash it on social media. Josh Trank even deleted his credits as the film’s director from his Instagram bio.
As you may know, Avengers: Endgame has a net set of character posters which features the tagline Avenge The Fallen with each of their characters; if the character died in Infinity War, the poster’s all blacked out, if the character is alive, the poster is fully colored. Well, Josh Trak took advantage of this and made a montage using a Fantastic Four poster and his own face replacing stars Miles Teller, Michael B. Jordan, and Kate Mara. Check it out:
Fantastic Four was an utter failure among critics and fans alike, who were eagerly waiting for a solid reboot after the Marvel Cinematic Universe proved to be a massive success. Nevertheless, when even the director of a film feels disappointed by how his own project turns out in the end, there’s little to be salvaged. Josh Trank’s film lacked a strong plot, a good script and character development which all translated in a rather huge letdown. Unfortunately, Josh Trank’s directorial career has been stagnated ever since with no films after Fantastic Four in 2015.
After Disney acquired Fox, it seems that the possibility of a third Fantastic Four reboot is more likely than ever. Marvel Studios seems to have perfected the formula for its superhero films and the next phase for the MCU seems like a perfect opportunity to see Reed Richards and company adequately fleshed out in the silver screen once and for all.

Josh Trank‘s Fantastic Four is available in 4k Ultra, Blu-Ray and DVD.
Top Actors To Replace Ben Affleck In Matt Reeves’ ‘The Batman’
Ben Affleck is officially out as Batman and it's a pretty sad day.
Words cannot describe how sad I am to see Ben Affleck announce that he's no longer Batman. His Batman is why I do what I do. In Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, I fell in love with his comic book-accurate interpretation of the Caped Crusader. It was a breath of fresh air and it felt like we finally had the one true Batman.
Three years have quickly sped by and we're officially going to receive a new Batman for his next movie. Last night, Ben Affleck announced that he will not return as the Dark Knight in Matt Reeves' The Batman and now everyone's attention has moved towards wanting to know who the next Bruce Wayne will be. Matt Reeves is said to want an actor that's around 20 years younger than Affleck while Warner Bros. wants someone older. My guess is that Reeves wants a fresh start while the studio wants an older actor for crossover potential.
In this list, I will discuss the actors I think can replace Ben Affleck as Batman using the parameters that Matt Reeves and Warner Bros. want. Hit Next to see our picks to play the Batman.
Michael Fassbender is an X-Men alum and no stranger to comic book franchises. The actor has shown multiple levels of range and could definitely handle the Batman/Bruce Wayne personality. If they go with the older range for the next Dark Knight, then Fassbender is probably one of the best choices to take over the role.
Ben Barnes is out of a job after The Punisher season 2 and he's one of the best actors in that series. The second season tied up Barnes' arc on The Punisher and the actor has already told us that that he'd love to play the Caped Crusader. Barnes definitely has the pretty boy look going on for him and I wonder what his take on Bruce Wayne could be.
I've said this before and I'll say it again: Ryan Gosling needs to star in a superhero movie. I've always thought Gosling would make a great Batman. Every role that he's done has shown us his capability and he could crush it as Bruce Wayne.
Jon Hamm is my top choice for an older Batman. If Warner Bros. wants to cast an older actor for crossover potential, Jon Hamm is the studio's best bet. He has a similar look to Ben Affleck, and c'mon, the guy's look just screams Bruce Wayne.
Armie Hammer is 32 years old and was cast as the Caped Crusader in George Miller's Justice League: Mortal. That film will never see the light of day, but that doesn’t mean that Hammer doesn't deserve a second shot at being the Batman. He's charming, broody and will probably give his all for this role. Armie Hammer is a great option because he's young enough for Matt Reeves and Warner Bros. could work in a way for him to crossover with the rest of the DC Extended Universe.
Game of Thrones alum Richard Madden is my top choice to replace Ben Affleck as Batman. The actor is young, has the look and definitely has the acting chops to play the duality of Batman and Bruce Wayne. Madden just won the Golden Globe for Best Actor in a Television series for the BBC drama Bodyguard, so Warner Bros. may want to quickly snatch him up.
