Slater co-wrote the script for the 2015 film, which was panned by critics and audiences alike.
Fantastic Four was produced for 20th Century Fox, and was therefore not part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU). After Disney’s merger with Fox in 2019, another Fantastic Four movie is currently in production, which will bring the popular comic characters into the MCU.
On Twitter, Slater responded to a fan who asked exactly what lessons he took from the earlier film.
“Well, most of my problems with Fantastic Four stemmed from the fact that I was trying to write it like an MCU movie, which wasn’t what the director wanted,” he wrote.
“I didn’t have that problem here.”
In another tweet, Slater was asked whether he would be involved in the forthcoming Fantastic Four project.
“Trust me, they don’t need my stink on another Fantastic Four,” he wrote. “Plus, the Marvel creative execs on the project are all brilliant. It’s going to be awesome.”
