The critics have not been kind to "Fantastic Four." And neither, it seems, was the movie's director.

Josh Trank took to Twitter on Thursday to blast his own film, suggesting that studio interference doomed the Marvel reboot.

"A year ago I had a fantastic version of this. And it would've received great reviews," he wrote. "You'll probably never see it. That's reality though."

Trank quickly took down the message, but it was too late -- screen grabs of the Tweet went viral.

With a 20 percent rating on Rotten Tomatoes, critics slammed the superhero movie, starring Miles Teller, Michael B. Jordan, Jamie Bell and Kate Mara, as a low-effort, slow-paced film that was too dark and misused its talented cast.
