'Fantastic Four 3' Gets Grimmer and Grimmer

The third 'Fantastic Four' film is unlikely to happen, said The Thing actor Michael Chiklis.

Hope for the development of "Fantastic Four 3" has once again being put out. Taking his turn to comment on the possibility of "Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer" sequel being materialized, Michael Chiklis pointed out even further to MTV News suggesting that the movie project may not see the light after all.

"No one's really given it the kibosh to me, but the silence has been deafening. The fact that no one's mentioned it or asked a question says that, more than likely, that's not going to happen," he noted. "I know that both of them were tremendously successful from a box office standpoint, but we've all moved on into other areas and other films."

Nevertheless, unlike his co-star Chris Evans who insisted earlier that the third film won't be pursued, the actor, who played Ben Grimm in "Fantastic Four" and its sequel, won't call the movie 100% off. "I wouldn't go with Chris and put a port-mortem on it because you just never know," he said. "As long as a company has your signature in place and they have a right of first refusal, that right may be exercised."

I have love the movie FF4 there should be a third one I have watched it so many times that i have lost count so please please I am begging for FF4 3 Keep the cast just make the story more suspense to make us watch more like the last scene in FF4: rise of the Silver Surfer that is what we need for every fight scene with any villians. So please Make FF4 3

You HAVE to make a 3rd, especially with an ending like the 2nd. It annoys me when people just don't make another, especially when they leave it open on a clincher. Like with Eragon, they left that open and its been like 5 years. Well annoyed at the producer of it. So anyway MAKE A 3RD FANTASTIC FOUR, it is truly FANTASTIC and CANNOT be stopped!!!

big fan here tell me what you think about this We're not really surprised by Chris Evans' comments to MTV, because 20th Century Fox and Marvel Studios are leaning more towards a Silver Surfer spin-off with a script by J. Michael Straczynski than they are moving forward with a third Fantastic Four movie

I'm not surprised there is not a big rush to produce FF3. FF1 and FF2 were very lackluster with poor casting, mediocre writing, and bad direction. I really love all things Marvel and will hope for the best for a fantastic FF3!

I have high hopes of not seeing 3 but 4 Fantastisa Four movies. I hope to see Dwayne Johnson as Prince Namor, the Submariner in FF3. And then I hope to see the FF go up against the Mole Man and the incredible Hulk.

The reason why FF2 didn't make enough money is because all the villains were defeated at the same time very quickly. They should have just had them attacking a Silver surfer powered Doctor doom and left Galactus for the third. However they messed up Galactus fans want a huge human like thing the size of a planet.

People, seriously. Galactus would be impossible to show. You would have to starve the other half of the world population to at least be able to afford to show a few minutes of him. The film did great on showing somewhat of what he looked like anyways. They would probably screw it up if they did show his real features.

Fantastic four 1 and 2 were both great films. Its hard to make them good because the comics are kind of dull but they both turned out to be hits. Please, make a third one and at least have a triligy of three. Maybe have Doom and Skrulls as villains. Always have Doom though.

FF1 and FF2 are the best Marvel movies to date. Please make another one and please then make another one ... and maybe another one.

Please produce Fan Four 3! Or Revamp the series in a couple of years and bring back Chiklis, Evans, and Gruffud. I love Alba, however the role needs to be recast.

posted by Joseph on Nov 17, 2008
Please bring back FF 3! make it a trilogy at the very least!! It is very enjoyable and my kids simply loved both movies! Or let them have a cross over ! either FF VS X-men or FF VS Avengers! yeah! we now have the tech to pull it through dudes!

I enjoyed the first film but galactus should have appeared as the purple, planet eating, god we know him as. I say if they do a third bring back silver surfer and galactus but make galactus in his human form! A good idea would be that the family has broken and seperated with reed and sue making a family with there kid and ben grim looking for a cure to his odd look. Galactus should be destroyed in a huge fight not just a few minutes like we saw in FF2! If they do make a third make it the last one! I know it would be call to have Fantastic four 4 but the plot is loosing ideas and needs a more interesting storyline!

I would straight up pissed and disappointed if Fox didn't close the FF4 franchise with FF4 3!
