Fox has put a lot of faith in their upcoming Fantastic Four reboot, specifically by announcing a sequel to the darn thing already.
Josh Trank’s Fantastic Four – starring Kate Mara, Michael B. Jordan, Miles Teller and Jamie Bell – will hit cinemas June 2015.
It’s follow-up (of course, always dependant on the first’s box office performance) will land in July of 2017.
With another X-Men sequel set for 2016, a new Wolverine spin-off coming in 2017, and a mystery Marvel project arriving in 2018, Fox are keen to stack their release calendar with some reliable tentpoles.
Whether or not they can build a saga-spinning machine like the one over at Marvel HQ remains to be seen.
