Torch snuffs FF3

I'm not sure how many people over the age of 12 were especially excited about the prospect of a third FANTASTIC FOUR movie, but that possibility seems to have dissipated like a giant cloud of Galactus.

At least that's according to two-time Human Torch himself Chris Evans (the most entertaining thing about either of the FF flicks), who doesn't sound keen on returning to the overly goofy franchise, and it's unlikely to happen anyway: "I’m pretty sure we won’t do [another] one. I’m assuming that one is a closed book. After the first one was released we got wind of potential titles and plots [almost immediately], and I’ve heard nothing from anyone at Fox [yet]. We had all planned on doing [another] one but if there were going to be a third I think a week after the second one was released we would have heard. It takes up a lot of time. It’s a big commitment. I’m happy with walking away."

While that may be sad news to Tim Story, I like Evans and would rather see him tackle some better (or at least more serious) material. Besides, there's a good chance IRON MAN has the potential to set the bar much higher for other Marvel movies. Maybe they'll just reboot the FF franchise (a la HULK) in a few years anyway...

Evans will be seen next in the LA cop thriller STREET KINGS.
Extra Tidbit: Since they're apparently going younger for the role, how about Evans for the new Jack Ryan?
