Despite rumors that there would be some kind of Fantastic Four surprise at Fox’s Hall H panel today at San Diego Comic Con, next year’s superhero reboot was a no-show.
Fox basically did what they announced, without any surprises (unlike the Paramount panel yesterday). Warner is known to be planning a huge surprise at their panel tomorrow morning, something involving a bat, an alien, and an amazon, but Fox couldn’t be bothered to even mention their Fantastic Four reboot in front of its target audience.
The movie is releasing next year, before the 2015 San Diego Comic Con, which means Fox is actually trying to hide the film from comic fans. These are the people Fox needs to sell the movie to first, but they’re keeping it hidden from them while allowing rumors of it being a found footage movie fester.
