WandaVision's Matt Shakman has been hired to direct the Marvel Studios Fantastic Four revival, and the film will now have a writer to direct the script.
The Fantastic Four have dominated the Marvel Comics universe since their introduction in 1961. Reed Richards, his friend Ben Grimm, Susan Storm, who became Richards' future wife, and her younger brother Johnny make up the titular group. The group has remained popular throughout the years, including four live-action films.
Fans have been anticipating the prospect of adding the Marvel Cinematic Universe's First Family. According to a Deadline report, the eagerly awaited film has assigned the writing team of Ian Springer and Jeff Kaplan to the script, which will serve as Matt Shakmans Phase 6 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Jon Watts, who directed the Spider-Man trilogy for Sony and Marvel Studios, was originally scheduled to direct the film. His Star Wars project came to an end because of the Fantastic Four. One of the two Marvel properties Disney acquired from 20th Century Fox after buying the studio is the Fantastic Four. After the acquisition, Jeff Kaplan and Ian Springer will have to deal with the MCU's strain and the high standards governing any live-action Fantastic Four adaptation.
In the next Avengers films Avengers: The Kang Dynasty and Avengers: Secret Wars, these heroes should team up to face common, interstellar foes. The film will be released on November 8, 2024, followed by Avengers: The Kang Dynasty on May 2, 2025, and Avengers: Secret Wars shortly thereafter.
