Fantastic Four mistake picture

Continuity mistake: Sue's hairstyle, as well as the texture and length of her hair, and the color, changes from scene to scene, and even at times from shot to shot. This was due to movie re-shoots.

Continuity mistake: Young Reed has blue/green eyes but older Reed has light brown eyes. Eyes never change color with age.

More quotes from Fantastic Four

Trivia: This reboot was given the green light due to the somewhat disappointing box-office numbers of the previous two "Fantastic Four" films. A reboot was considered "less risky" financially. Sadly and quite ironically, this film earned even less than those two films, bringing in roughly $100 million less worldwide than the prior film and nearly $200 million less than the first.

Question: I suppose this is more a request for an educated guess than anything. Why can't anyone seem to produce a working Fantastic 4 movie franchise? The first two movies and the first reboot were awful, simply put, and the poor box office returns made future sequels or reboots even less likely. Why can no one seem to get a grip on what makes Fantastic 4 tick?

Chosen answer: In a nutshell, 20th Century Fox and the people that worked on the respective films simply don't understand the comics and why fans like the source material. It's also worth noting that the 2015 film was made so that Fox could retain the rights, as they would have gone back to Marvel had they not begun production on it by a certain date in 2014. They weren't exactly making the film with the intention of it being great, rather as a rights grab and a money grab, though the film ended up being a major box office flop, so the latter didn't exactly pan out in their favor. There are many fans that would like to see the rights to Fantastic 4 revert back to Marvel Studios, as they would more than likely do the films justice.
