We're living in the golden age of superhero movies. Never let anyone tell you otherwise. Over the course of the last decade, we have seen innumerable comic book characters grace the silver screen with truly amazing results. With the debut of Iron Man in 2008, we learned that even the most obscure heroes could achieve mainstream appeal if treated properly by a filmmaker.

However, for every great superhero movie that made its way to theaters, there was another that died in development hell. To honor those sacrifices, we've compiled a list of some of the coolest Marvel movies that never materialized. Take a look at our entries, and let us know your favorite unmade Marvel movie in the comments section below. Now, let's get the ball rolling with one superhero property that Hollywood simply hasn't figured out just yet.

Peyton Reed's Fantastic Four

Marvel's first family hasn't had an easy time on the silver screen since... well they've never really had a strong presence in cinema. However, that could've changed when Ant-Man director, Peyton Reed, found himself attached to helm a Fantastic Four reboot that would go on to become the reviled 2005 film. As a lifelong fan of the Fantastic Four, Reed remained committed to the project through its development hell until it eventually morphed into the laughable 2005 outing, and he dropped out. Opening up about the project recently, Reed revealed that his vision was to take the Fantastic Four from the "B-level" status that 20th Century Fox had kept them at, and give them the blockbuster treatment that would become the standard a full decade later. He likened several of the sequences he had planned for the film to the Battle of New York from The Avengers, and that alone should instantly tell you what we missed out on. With the success of Ant-Man, perhaps Marvel will give him creative control if Fox ever decides to sell the rights. He's definitely earned it.
