Having found success with “Creed,” Michael B Jordan is finally coming to terms with the failure of his movie, “The Fantastic Four.”
Mary Sue reports that Michael B. Jordan burnt his fingers with “Fantastic Four.” It was such a big box office loser that Fox has removed “Fantastic Four 2” from its schedule. It was slated for a 2017 release, but now it has been cancelled and postponed indefinitely.
Michael B. Jordan was probably not expecting that kind of failure from the movie. It was after all a big budget special effects heavy production. But he is now coming to terms with its unfortunate failure.
When Michael B. Jordan was invited to talk on the Bill Simmons podcast to promote his new film, “Creed,” where he opened up about the dismal failure of “Fantastic Four.” Jordan admitted that even though the movie was a flop, he did not regret working on the film. He was a comic book fan and he was delighted to play his favorite character.
He told the press that working on the movie was a dream come true. He described the experience as “one of those things” that teach you that things aren’t in your control all the time.
It’s good to know that Jordan is the kind of guy who takes away the positive lessons from every experience. He said that you could be giving a 110% to a project and people still might not think that it is good enough.
Michael B Jordan said, “It doesn’t mean that you’re a failure or it doesn’t mean that you didn’t do a great job, it just means that as a whole, as a project, there are so many other pieces that are moving that have nothing to do with you that determine the outcome of a film, so that was kind of one of those things that I had to come to terms with.”
