Matt Shakman, the director of WandaVision, is all set to direct a Fantastic Four silver screen adaptation, given how long MCU fans have been waiting for the super team to be included in the family.
Shakman's first days working on WandaVision were nothing like his first days, and that's what he considers to be his greatest advantage, according to an interview with Collider. After Spider-Man's chief Watts resigned, Shakman took the position of director of the Fantastic Four.
As the famous Marvel saying goes, great power comes with great responsibility, but Shakman was now meeting "family" every time he came to work.
“Marvel is a wonderful place to work,” said the director-producer. “I was excited to be able to return and work with them because even though they produce the most spectacular films, you’re working with a small family of people.”
Other directors have accused Marvel Studios of stifling creativity for the sake of formula, but that wasn't the case for Shakman's WandaVision and It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, which illustrates the environment's awe, warmth, and cooperation.
Shakman's words should be enough to entice people to see the film, even if the director's efforts aren't enough of a selling point, then the fact that his work on WandaVision (where he also served as executive producer) was recognized with a string of Emmy nominations — including awards for the costume design, the music, and the production design — should suffice.
