Toby Kebbell wishes you could see Josh Trank's real cut of Fantastic Four

Last summer, Josh Trank 's FANTASTIC FOUR was the film stuck in everyone's crosshairs.

Simon Kinberg is "really focused" on Fantastic Four 2

It's safe to say that FANTASTIC FOUR reboot didn't exactly turn out well for anyone involved. Ask anyone who actually took the time to see it, and you'll find out it wasn't the disaster many had proclaimed it to be... but that doesn't mean it was anywhere close to good either.
