Fantastic Four

Not too long ago it looked like the rights to the Fantastic Four would revert to Marvel Studios. When Twentieth Century Fox’s hold on Daredevil ran out, it was revealed that they had been offered the chance to keep the Man Without Fear in exchange for giving Marvel Galactus and Silver Surfer.

The thing about the Fantastic Four is that their supporting cast is as valuable as the foursome themselves, and the potential for just the two characters mentioned above in the Marvel Cinematic Universe was huge. However, Fox weren’t keen on keeping Daredevil and instead got to work on rebooting the franchise after two disastrous efforts from Tim Story. Soon after, they turned to Chronicle director Josh Trank and X-Men: Days of Future Past writer Simon Kinberg to bring the Fantastic Four back to the big screen.

With Miles Teller, Kate Mara, Jamie Bell and Michael B. Jordan all cast, this reimagining will focus on a younger version of the team, seemingly taking inspiration from the Ultimate like of comic books. Now, Fox has the opportunity to really take advantage of these characters and create a franchise as huge as the X-Men or Avengers, and here are ten things we would like to see them utilise in the upcoming reboot and beyond…

10. Galactus

Galactus

Galactus is one of the most iconic and frightening villains in the Marvel Universe, and though it appears as if Doctor Doom will be the main villain in The Fantastic Four, some sort of reference to him would be perfect (what a great idea for an after-credits scene, eh?).

The character was portrayed as a cloud in Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer, but Twentieth Century Fox need to embrace this larger than life bad guy and make him the main villain in a sequel. Galactus consumes planets, and when he first arrived on Earth, he was stopped by the four superheroes. Joined by the Silver Surfer, Fox have a huge amount of material they can turn to when it comes to bringing this character to life, all of which would be much better than what we got back in 2007.
