Why does Fox keep screwing up its Marvel properties?
I'm fed up with reading people argue that the X-Men are in any remote way superior to the Marvel Studios films. If the useless Wolverine spinoffs and X-Men:The Last Stand weren't indicative enough the shoddy way Fox treated Daredevil/Elektra and still treats The Fantastic Four is testament to the fact that they don't care about these characters and getting them done right. They're simply interested in retaining a potential cash cow at all costs and then experimenting with hacks/untested filmmakers and allowing them to do what they like either the projects by casting eminently unsuitable, flavour-of-the-month/Fox contract actors and going for a totally jarring dark or utterly glib tone that ill-suits the property in question.
Until the rights for The Fantastic Four and the X-Men turn to Marvel Studios, or anyone else who knows what the heck they're doing I refuse to pay to see any of these films, and anyone who's a fan of these characters should feel the same way.
I mean, Tim Story and Josh Trask? What the heck? A hack and a neophyte.
Oh, you English are so superior, aren't you?
