A senior Marvel Studios official said that the next Fantastic Four revival for the MCU will have an unexpected plot.
Given how well-liked the First Family is in both comics and the movies, there is still a lot of anticipation for their first MCU standalone narrative, which is set to debut in early 2025. However, while casting for the film is in in its early stages, some significant information about the plot that Marvel Studios will provide to the public has already been made known.
Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige said in Summer 2022 that the Fantastic Four movie in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) will not be an origin narrative, following in the footsteps of the Spider-Man series, with fans already being aware of the team’s history. Fans will be clamouring for plot details as they wait to learn more about what is occurring, and with writing team Jeff Kaplan and Ian Springer in place for the screenplay and Matt Shakman taking on directorial responsibilities, they will be in high demand.
MCU Fans Will Be Surprised by Fantastic Four
The Fantastic Four, rather than the X-Men, will make its MCU debut first, according to Marvel Studios VP of Production & Development Nate Moore, who also noted that fans would be “quite startled” by what the studio is doing with the reboot:
“Incredible Four, Incredible Four. We have a really good director, Matt Shakman, who worked with us on WandaVision, and I think people will be pleasantly pleased by what we do.”
In a February interview, the film’s director, Matt Shakman, also discussed the picture and contrasted his work on it to his tenure on the Star Trek series. He expressed his eagerness to dig into the family component of the team’s trip by noting how they “both were launched in the ’60s” and that they were both “about hope and looking to the stars and technology”:
“They’re both about optimism, reaching for the stars, and [how] technology can solve all of life’s problems. They’re also about family — the family you have and the family you make. It’s really a family there, and to be able to go back and tackle something that I truly love, and they’re very similar in some ways. I’m thrilled to be working on “Fantastic Four” since they are in line with one another in many respects and appeal to my heart on an equal basis.”
He described the chance to helm Fantastic Four as “too hard to pass up,” expressing how eager he was to return to the Marvel universe following his work on WandaVision:
“The opportunity to return home to Marvel, where I previously worked on “WandaVision,” and work with those folks who are fantastic collaborators, was simply too much to pass up since movies have distinct paths, momentums, and schedules that are rather unpredictable.“
With three live-action films from 20th Century Fox that focused on the team’s experiences over the preceding 20 years, Marvel Studios is undoubtedly eager to give the Fantastic Four its own unique spin. But right now, the key question is what those shocks will be. Given that Kang the Conqueror is already in the picture and that Doctor Doom has already been teased, this may take the shape of a brand-new antagonist that the First Family has never seen before.
Along with the villain, this will be the team’s first time living in the same realm as the other Avengers, which will be especially significant as they gear up for their two largest adventures yet, Avengers: The Kang Dynasty and Avengers: Secret Wars. By itself, this will provide them the chance to prepare for some very world-threatening future events while working with a larger team of Marvel characters they’ve never seen on screen with before. And as moviegoers breathlessly await the introduction of the film’s main cast of actors, the tale they’ll tell before Phase 6 begins will be an equally thrilling concept.
On February 14, 2025, Fantastic Four will make its theatrical premiere.Follow us to get free & fast MCU Movies/Shows Leaks & News
