'Fantastic Four' Director Reacts to Bad Reviews in Deleted Tweet
The "Fantastic Four" reboot has faced nothing but problems from the start, and now even the director appears to be distancing himself from the final version.
The new "Fantastic Four" movie, which currently has only a 10% fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes, reportedly had set tensions between director Josh Trank and Fox executives, and The Hollywood Reporter said producers Simon Kinberg and Hutch Parker stepped in to finish the movie with reshoots just a few months before opening.
Perhaps that's what Josh was referencing in a tweet he sent out August 6, the day before his movie's official opening; the message was promptly deleted -- but not before the Internet saved it for posterity.
Josh Trank has yet to respond, tweet anything new, or go for the classic "I was hacked."
This is just the latest unfortunate bit of news for the movie. F4 was attacked by some fans for casting Michael B. Jordan as a black Johnny Storm, Kate Mara faced stupid questions about her short hair and sexy toes, Miles Teller just got bashed by Esquire (the cast all tweeted in his defense), and Jamie Bell was finally dragged into the silliness when asked about The Thing's penis on "Watch What Happens Live."
It's possible all the insane chatter will just make viewers curious to see "Fantastic Four" and perhaps fans will be pleasantly surprised if it doesn't turn out to be the new "Ishtar." But it sounds like the franchise may be cursed ... unless Marvel can save it?
