AceShowbiz - In the wake of Disney's announcement to release its "Star Wars Episode VIII" on May 26, 2017, 20th Century Fox decided to push back the release date of its "The Fantastic Four 2". Initially planning to debut the film on June 2, 2017, the studio moves it back one week to June 9, 2017.
The release date change has been considered by many as a smart decision as "it does give the superhero sequel a bit more breathing room." Meanwhile, question arises as to whether or not Warner Bros. Pictures will move the release date of its highly anticipated flick "The Lego Batman Movie", which has been set for May 26, 2017.
In related news, some first photos of the soon-to-come "The Fantastic Four" which will be released this coming August have surfaced online. The images, featured on the new issue of Total Film (via Games Radar), offer glimpses at some of the film's characters, including %cMiles Teller%'s Reed Richards, %cKate Mara%'s Sue Storm, and %cMichael B. Jordan%'s Johnny Storm.
