I can see doing a reboot if something bombs. You want to start over and distance yourself as best you can from the original. However, doing a reboot of something successful just for the sake of putting your own stamp on it or to make more money is stupid, IMHO. The Fantastic Four
movies are a great example. Both of those movies made money. Plus, a lot of critics and fans agreed that the second film was an improvement over the first. So, why not keep up the trend by doing a 3rd film instead of a reboot? Now they have to go back to the beginning and show the origin of the characters *again
* with someone else's twist on it.
