Fantastic Four Honest Trailer Reminds Us How Badly Comic Book Movies Can Suck
The Fantastic Four reboot has gotten shockingly great early buzz so far, but if it's a success, it won't be the result of its predecessors: the pedestrian Fantastic Four and the truly terrible Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer. Check out this honest trailer from Screen Junkies, which tells us exactly why the characters should probably have reverted back to Marvel by now:



Opening quote
"At a time when comic book movies began to show how good they can be, two films remind us how badly they can suck."
Closing quote


They also remind us that Andrea from The Walking Dead was always the worst, and that the Marvel characters of that era all had terrible villains, regardless of which studio they belonged to. ("STOP MAKING CLOUD-BASED VILLAINS.")

Opening quote
"So before you see the third and hopefully final attempt to launch the Fantastic Four, relive the original two disappointments, who gave their lives so Chris Evans could be free to play a decent Captain America."
Closing quote


(Also, is that Kerry Washington? How many talented actors slummed it in these terrible movies?)

Josh Trank's reboot of Fantastic Four, which will hopefully be a breath of fresh air, hits theaters on Friday.
