Look at it this way, it can’t be worse than the original!

‘Fantastic’ Sequel Gets 2007 Release Date
LOS ANGELES ( It’ll be mutants battling robots for July 4th supremacy in 2007.
Marvel and 20th Century Fox have taken out ads in the industry trade papers announcing that “Fantastic Four II” (or “Fantastic 2”) will premiere on July 4, 2007. Even two years out, though, that date is already getting crowded. During the summer, DreamWorks Pictures, Paramount Pictures and Hasbro, Inc. laid their claim to the weekend for Michael Bay’s “Transformers” feature.
Stars Jessica Alba, Chris Evans, Michael Chiklis and Ioan Gruffudd are apparently under contract to reprise their roles from the summer hit that has taken in over $321 million worldwide. The film’s domestic take has been over $150 million, a strong total for a film that was largely critically savages.
While promoting her September release “Into the Blue,” Alba discussed her hopes for the future of her Sue Storm character and Gruffudd’s Reed Richards.
“Married — I think they need to get married,” she said. “I know what the first 20 minutes are gonna be, of the movie. It’s really cool. They’re getting married. Maybe I’m giving away too much, but yeah.”
For anything beyond that, though, fans may just need to wait.
