Fox’s Fantastic Four Remake Pushed Back

Fox’s first two attempts at adapting the Fantastic Four franchise to the big screen weren’t exactly well-received by fans, so it’s not surprising that their planned remake is being anticipated by people just to see how they plan to address the issues that plagued the originals.

Just a few weeks after Marvel officially announced Chris Evans will don Captain America’s mask and shield in the upcoming film The First Avenger: Captain America, the comic book company is ready to debut Cap’s sidekick, Bucky.
