Fanboys seem to love bashing any superhero movie which isn’t dark, gritty, and full of bats but I’m more than happy to admit I’ve had a lot of fun with the Fantastic Four franchise. Best of all, the movies only seemed to be on track to keep getting better. They made money too so you’d think a third film would be in the cards. Unfortunately with Hollywood’s rush to clone The Dark Knight, bright, upbeat superhero movies are probably on the way out. So it should come as no surprise to hear that FF star Chris Evans is running around pronouncing the Four dead.

The guys at JoBlo caught up with the former Human Torch out promoting his new, darker, more realistic superhero flick Push and asked him where Fantastic Four 3 stood. Evans response was, “I think they're done. They've closed the book on that franchise. I think if there was talk I think that I would've heard about it by now.”

Yep, he probably would have. The last movie, Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer came out in 2007. If Evans hasn’t heard even a whisper about another one, then odds are the Fantastic Four’s run is two and done. Say goodbye to superhero fun.
