In the wake of the critical and commercial response to 2015's Fantastic Four, producer Simon Kinberg has pledged Fox won't take another run at Marvel's First Family until it's "sure we get it 100 percent right." That doesn't mean the studio is stepping back from the franchise, however, as the creator of FX's Legion is developing a Doctor Doom movie, and there are rumors of a Franklin Richards spinoff. But when Fox is ready to return to the FF, there's one notable director that would like his shot.
While speaking with CinemaBlend, Kingsman: The Golden Circle director Matthew Vaughn said he wants to develop a Fantastic Four movie, as a consolation of sorts to fellow fans who've been disappointed by the previous features.
"The other one I've felt an obligation to do is, I wouldn't mind maybe making a Fantastic Four film to apologize to everyone out there that maybe it didn't go very well for them," he said. "It's brilliant. One of my favorites is the Fantastic Four, so maybe one day I'll try and rectify the mistake."
If Fox were to take Vaughn up on his offer, it might be a while before he could get around to the project. He's already stated he's working on expanding the Kingsman universe, and has also had talks with Warner Bros. about Man of Steel 2.
Opening Frdiay, Kingsman: The Golden Circle stars returning cast members Taron Egerton, Colin Firth, Mark Strong and Sophie Cookson, joined by Julianne Moore, Halle Berry, Elton John, Channing Tatum and Jeff Bridges.
