Marvel fans are currently waiting on the MCU reboot of the Fantastic Four, but in the meantime, we’re stuck with three not-so well-received Fantastic Four movies. What’s funny is, HBO Max has the option to watch 2005’s Fantastic Four, but they accidentally promoted it with an image from the 2015 movie.

Check it out:



Admittedly, a lot of people didn’t like any Fantastic Four film, but the 2005 version kind of holds a special place in my heart; in fact, I thought it was a solid comic book film up until I got access to the internet and realized that everyone hated it.



Based on how I remember it, I thought the movie was fun, the characters had great chemistry, and Michael Chiklis looked amazing in that practical Thing suit; I just hope that Marvel decides to give the new Thing that look rather than just CGI him like what they do with Korg.

With the acquisition of Fox being fairly new, there’s a lot of debate on which will come first into the MCU, the Fantastic Four or the X-Men. Seeing as the X-Men is the last property to get movies, I’m thinking that Marvel has its eyes set on the F4 first, with the X-Men soon to follow.

This is just my guess, but I’m thinking that they’re going to make the old Avengers/Stark Tower into the infamous Baxter Building. We already know that someone bought the building thanks to Spider-Man: Homecoming; what are the odds that it’s the Baxter that rents it out to Reed Richards?

Marvel is yet to announce the next Fantastic Four film.
