Phooey. Kate Mara fancies 'Fantastic Four' follow-up
Kate Mara, who played Sue Storm in the 2015 box office disaster, explained she’d be interested in the prospects of reprising her role. Although if you watch the video below, her response on the topic is about as convincing as if you asked her whether she’d enjoy having her back scratched with a cheese grater.
“I’d love to be a part of a Fantastic 4 sequel or whatever they may or may not have in store for us,” Mara told IGN. “We love working with each other. We would love to actually play these characters in another way.”
Fantastic Four was a disaster critically and financially. It delivered a Rotten Tomato critics score of just 9 percent favorable and 19 percent favorable from the audience. This distaste helped ensure the movie would bring in only $56 million domestically on a budget of $120 million. And it didn’t help matters when the movie’s director Josh Trank trashed the flick on Twitter just a day before its release.
At the time he wrote (and quickly deleted) the post, “A year ago I had a fantastic version of this. And it would’ve received great reviews. You’ll probably never see it. That’s reality though.”
Let’s let FF RIP.
