Default Re: Do you think Fox will/should make a Silver Surfer film?

They show every intention of making their Marvel projects more fan-accessible and "authentic" to canon, and righting wrongs such as Tim Story's FF, X-Men Origins, and The Last Stand.
What evidence do you have that they "realize" their mistakes? Hiring loud mouth, Captain Extreme Mark Millar? Creating their own mini-MCU?

I'd prefer to look at their track record to judge their future. They have made 9 Marvel films:
X2: X-Men United
X-Men: The Last Stand
X-Men Origins: Wolverine
X-Men: First Class
Fantastic Four
Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer

Of those 9 films how many are good? Only 3! 33%. That's not much of a track record. That's not much room for optimism.

Lets do a few more comparisons while we're at it. How about Sony? They have made 6 Marvel films.
Spider-Man 2
Spider-Man 3
Amazing Spider-Man
Ghost Rider
Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance

How many are good? 3 out of the 6 or 50%. This is hardly a good track record but its significantly higher than Fox's.

Now finally how about Marvel Studios/Disney? They have made 6 Marvel movies.
Iron Man
The Incredible Hulk
Iron Man 2
Captain America: The First Avenger
Marvel's The Avengers

How many we're good? 6 or 100%! Any questions as to why most of us don't trust Fox or Sony for that matter?


If it’s not in the MCU we don’t want it Sony!
Free Hulk & Namor!
