‘Fantastic Four’ Movie Flop: Creative Difference Among Directors and 20th Century Fox Lead to Deletion of Many Scenes

Who do you blame if a superhero franchise film fell down badly at the box office? Do you blame the superheroes, action sequences, special effects or the secret element of the last scene? Well, we can’t blame a single thing because a superhero movie is made up of everything and if some of these critical elements are missing, then it will become difficult to save the movie from falling. This is what happened to the “Fantastic Four’s” latest reboot, as many important scenes have been deleted due to the creative difference between 20th Century Fox and its directors.

Dave Gonzales, writer for several publications, published pictures of those deleted scenes on Twitter which were presented in the trailers of the movie. He commented that the most action packed scenes and amazing finale were not shown in the movie.


The scene showing a more serene moment between the superheroes was not in the film, as reported by Collider.

Slashfilm also reported, “Even the movie Poster of Fantastic Four itself does not reference any event that happens in the movie.” In the same line Comic Book Resources pointed out that no fantasticar was shown in the film as planned. ScreenCrush also noted that the deleted scenes have the potential to provide more emotions to the story and would have been capable of saving the movie from falling.

Josh Trank, director of the film said, “A year ago I had a fantastic version of this. And it would’ve received great reviews. You’ll probably never see it. That’s reality though.” He clearly explained that the film flopped at the box office due to the removal of extraordinary scenes and this is why it is receiving criticism from critics and audience.

Well, it is not clear how many scenes have been deleted from the film but one thing is clear – too much editing will lead to disaster. So, creative differences should always be put aside when it comes to quality and performance.
