The new film – which stars Miles Teller, Jamie Bell, Kate Mara and Michael B Jordan – opened to just $26.2 million (£16.8m) in North America, despite forecasts of $40-50m (£26-32m).

Things weren’t any better internationally where the movie only managed $34.1m (£21.9m) in 43 markets, bringing the film’s global total to $60.3m (£38.8m).

Fox’s domestic distribution chief, Chris Aronson, said (via The Hollywood Reporter): “While we’re disappointed, we remain committed to these characters and we have a lot to look forward to in our Marvel universe.”

While Fox haven’t said outright that there will be a sequel in 2017. This is the strongest hint that the studio hasn’t given up the ghost with Marvels first family.
