AceShowbiz - While "The Fantastic Four" won't hit the big screen until August 7, there is a rumor which says that the movie will get a sequel. According to This Is Infamous, 20th Century Fox wants to move quickly with the project as the studio reportedly eyes director Bryan Singer to helm "The Fantastic Four 2".
Sources say that Trank's "Fantastic Four" is good enough, so the studio wants to make a sequel, but it isn't officially greenlit. If the rumor about Singer's hiring is true, it is not impossible if the previously-rumored "X-Men" crossover project will really happen. Singer who has helmed several "X-Men" movies will possibly bring "Fantastic Four" and "X-Men" together for a crossover movie. The studio reportedly wants to create their own version of a Marvel Cinematic Universe.
The rumor of the crossover movie has been swirling for years. Back in 2013, a rumor said that the two groups of superheroes (Fantastic Four and X-Men) would clash against each other instead of working together side by side in the movie.
However, there is no word yet on whether Singer is interested in helming the sequel of the "Fantastic Four" reboot. Singer is currently busy working on "X-Men: Apocalypse" which will be released on May 27, 2016. "Fantastic Four 2" is currently slated for a U.S. release on June 9, 2017.
