Okay, so there’s this meme known as "Boardroom Suggestion". For those who’ve never heard of it, it was originally a comic strip from a web comic called "Hejibits". Here’s what the "Know Your Meme" website has to say about this meme: knowyourmeme.com/memes/boardro…
It’s one of my favorite memes and I love most of the variations I’ve seen of it. With the poor reception the Fantastic Four reboot got during this past week, I got the idea of doing my own version of this meme by showing what the executives at Fox are probably thinking right now. I did it last Friday, but I decided to wait until today, when the North American box-office results for this weekend would be revealed, to publish it.
And so, how much money has the reboot made during its first weekend? $26.2 million, getting its ass kicked by "Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation", which was released one week ago! And what are the percentages on Rotten Tomatoes for this movie right now? 9% from the professional critics and 25% from audiences! Congratulations, Fox! Even though you’ve repaired many of your mistakes with the last few X-Men movies, you STILL couldn’t make a decent Fantastic Four movie AND managed to make one of the worst comic book movies of all-time! Oh, I can’t wait to see this movie win plenty of awards during the upcoming year!
…And by 'awards', I mean the Razzie Awards, of course!

The Fantastic Four reboot belongs to Fox… and they can shove it up their asses.
Hum… First of all, the movie rights to the Fantastic Four are entirely independent from the movie rights to the X-Men. That means if Fox gave up on keeping the movie rights to the FF, they would still own the movie rights to the X-Men. Second, even if Marvel Studios somehow managed to get back the movie rights to the X-Men, I don’t see how they could kill Quicksilver off a second time. They would need to bring him BACK from the dead in the first place before killing him off again.
I still don't understand why did they kill off their own Quicksilver, seems like a waste for Marvel to fight tooth and nail to get these characters from Fox's copyright only to kill him off in his first movie.
Also, I have no idea if Marvel really fought THAT hard to gain the rights to share Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch with Fox. Although I’d love to see the circumstances behind all the contracts they signed with the various studios.
I kinda wanted to check this out, but after hearing the reviews for it...I dunno if it's worth it at this point.
