It’s been a while since I’ve seen the Fantastic Four movies from 2005 and 2007. I’ve been thinking about rewatching them before seeing the new potential train wreck that hopefully forces a Sony/Marvel/Spider-Man-like deal that brings the FF back where it belongs.

Marvel was really not off to a good start.
