The Fantastic Four Gets Delayed & Assassin’s Creed Film Now In Limbo

19 Sep

Howdy once, again people, I return to this blog to update you all on some comic book film news and this one is both disappointing and funny at the same time. The following information comes from ComicBookMovie:

It’s not a major delay, but the wait for Josh Trank’s The Fantastic Four has now got a little longer as Fox have shifted its release date from June 19th, 2015 to August 7th, 2015. The reason for the change isn’t quite clear, though as filming has already come to an end, it’s likely more of a strategic choice than for reshoots or post-production issues. A six week delay is a shame, but nowhere near as disappointing as the fact that Assassin’s Creed is now undated. Michael Fassbender is attached to star in the ambitious project which will bring the popular video game series to the big screen. Ubisoft are also hoping to turn Splinter Cell into a movie starring Tom Hardy, and while that all seems fine (it’s at a different studio anyway), this isn’t particularly good news for Assassin’s Creed.

So after the great news about Deadpool, this happens. Wow, seems like 20th Century Fox really have problems going on right now. Firstly, let’s talk about Fantastic Four, bloody hell, that the film just isn’t in the best state. With a young cast not many people are keen on and a severe lack of information and visual material for the film, this delay in the film doesn’t make the production of this film any better. For me, I want to see this film prove me wrong, but there hasn’t been anything released about this film that I’ve been excited about. I love how most fans on the internet are actually happy about this news because it pushes the film further away from being released. As for Assassin’s Creed, that is bad times. While I’ve never been super stoked on the idea of a AC film, I have been interested in seeing how it would turn out with Michael Fassbender’s involved. When a film is in limbo that is never a good sign and since there is no sign of a replacement date, that puts this film in an awkward place. Will it get a replacement date or will it go into development hell or will it get cancelled altogether? I know those are some extreme options, but they have been known to happen before.

In conclusion, this news isn’t good for either film, however, I can’t help but chuckle a little bit at the FF’s situation, that film is not having a good time and I don’t think anyone cares. So what do you think about this news? Be sure to comment below.

    Video game movies are hard to do but I’d be interested in seeing how Assassin’s Creed turns out as long as Fassbender is still attached to the film. I won’t be surprised though if this movie never gets made or if Fassbender drops out. 🙂
