    Fox must be under the gun to aim for 2015. I know they can retain the rights as long as the have the franchise in development by a certain date, but they also have to deliver a finished product. At this point they may be more concerned with holding onto those rights than with crafting a good film. To be honest, I believe they place more value on the rights to the FF's villains (Galactus, the Silver Surfer, Doctor Doom) than on the heroes themselves. It's a crying shame.

    It's the same date John Carter had, or is close to it.

    This reboot has been gestating for well over three years. Trank has been attached to the pic since last July. They're not pressed for time.

    They have a script and a solid director. All they need to do is assemble the right cast to make this reboot worthwhile. If they begin production next year, they'll have plenty of time for filming and post-production to make the film on time and on budget.

    And booking a March 2015 release is a smart move on Fox's part. If they make a good movie, they can strike before Avengers 2 claims everything in its path two months later.

    It was announced earlier the plan was for FF to go Into production after Days of future
    Past.So all Is going according to plan.With Avengers sequel,Star Wars episode VII,and
    possibly Justice league In summer march Is smart.

    And this means less money for poster child of evil hollywood corporations DIsney.

    John Carter came out the second week of March, not the first week. And just because it's close to sharing a release date with JC doesn't mean it'll bomb at the box office.

    I think that March 6 date is a solid vote of confidence on Fox's part. They've obviously looked at the trend of March releases like 300, The Lorax, Hunger Games and Alice in Wonderland.

    I don't think they expect 'Alice' or HG-sized domestic earnings for the reboot though, but they could make a good profit if the movie's good.

    Risky play by Fox. Fantastic Four isn't that intimidating a property that any of the other big companies wouldn't park their own March tentpole on the same date and do a squeeze play (ala DOFP and TBA in 2014).

    As it stands 2015 is shaping up to be 2012 redux, but with TA2 in the TDKR role while JL and F4 are TA and TASM, respectively.

    I think there's plenty of room in March 2015 to accomodate several tentpoles now. Conceivably, the competition could opt for the HG spot... which would be March 20, 2015.

    Or if Fox is forced to move, they could always move to early April. I mean, Marvel is taking a risk by releasing CA2 in early April 2014, which is a slow month usually.

    I have a mixed feeling about this F4 reboot. On one hand, I'd like to see a Fantastic 4 movie done right finally, but on the other hand I'd love nothing more than having Marvel's First Family joins MCU, and have Avengers, F4, and GOTG all battling the mighty Galactus and Dr. Doom. But I guess the silver lining is that it will let Marvel divert their limited resources on other movies such as Ant-Man and prepare for Avengers 2 in 2015.

    It would be years before they could build up to that type of event even if Marvel did have the rights to FF. Besides, I think there's a good chance that down the road Fox, Sony, and Marvel will strike a cross licensing deal to collaborate on their films anyway. There's obvious interest on both sides and you're crazy if you think a good number of those nerds all working on these films aren't bugging executives to do something about it. Hell, even executives on both sides want it.

    Then why does it have a release date? Fox wants this to happen, they're not going to let the rights expire like they did with Daredevil.
