Josh Trank Says There’s ‘No Need’ For a #ReleaseTheTrankCut of Fantastic Four

The 2015 reboot of Fantastic Four is pretty infamous, and if you’ve never seen it…you really don’t need to. But its production was very similar to Zack Snyder’s Justice League where the original director was replaced during production and reshoots were handled by someone else. In the case of Fantastic Four, Simon Kinberg (Dark Phoenix) did the reshoots and they were so bad you could spot the new scenes because Sue’s wig didn’t match the earlier scenes.

Now that the Snyder Cut is coming out on HBO Max, the #ReleaseTheSnyderCut crowd is threatening to come after Trank’s original version of F4. He says there’s no need:

Even Trank seems to know that version of Fantastic Four is unsalvageable and now that Fox is owned by Disney and Kevin Feige is working to introduce Marvel’s First Family to the MCU; any effort to resurrect that version won’t work.
