To be fair - I would think the lack of "success" with FF 1 & 2 [even though they made better money than First Class] would make it less likely that they could afford to do such a blow by blow rehash of FF 1 in the reboot. Is an audience going to embrace so much of the same movie again.
Amazing Spider-Man retold the origin, which could be viewed as an error that resulted in less b.o., but they did not give us the same villain all over again in the process.
