They need to begin filming a new Fantastic Four movie within 7 years after the last Fantastic Four movie was released. Meaning that they have until about early Fall 2014 to start filming. Once they begin filming, there are other dates that they have to meet. They can't just take 5 years to film the movie. However, the actual time that they have to release the film after filming begins remains a guarded secret by those in the know.
Fox can change the release date. They aren't locked into March 2015. However, what they must do is to begin filming within 7 years after the last FF film was released. Announcing release dates, changing release dates, announcing directors, or anything similar will not stop the FF from reverting. The only thing that will stop the clock is for filming to begin by Fall of 2014.
Well if this is true they have an entire year to get the cameras rolling before it reverts! Now some of you Marvel purists would love for the for Marvel Studios to get back The First Family. But the reality is...just like Daredevil....Marvel Studios won't be able to make a Fantastic Four film until after Phase III at the earliest. So would you rather wait that far a Fantastic Four reboot?! Be honest.....Lets just hope FOX, Trank, Miller and Co can get going cause the time is running out....
