The Fantastic Four franchise has been closing in to enter into the Marvel’s Cinematic Universe, as Marvel Chief Kevin Feige has affirmed on Sunday at Comic-Con that a “Fantastic Four” film will be involved in Marvel Studio’s phase 6.
Feige also added that the movie will be released on November 8, 2024, however, it is unlikely that the previous fantastic four casts including Marvel’s Captain America, could be seen in MCU’s “Fantastic Four”.
Nonetheless, no casting of the film has been announced on Comic-Con.
Feige lays off plans for phase 5, 6 and “Fantastic Four”
Apart from revealing the groundwork of phase five and six that would include an introduction of X-Men alongside Jonathan Major’s Kang as a centrepiece of multiverse, Feige also explained the delay of Avengers movie.
Meanwhile, speaking in the Comin-Con, Feige added, “I think we learn something on every project we do, but as we were laying out, even three years ago here laying out Phase Four, which we didn't lay out all of, but most of, we realized that it's very different than Phase One, Two and Three, that that there are more projects in less years, and therefore it didn't seem right, you're not going to culminate every 10 months in an Avengers movie”.
If truth is to be spoken, the “Fantastic Four” has a long history in the filming industry, however, the movie has made little impacts in recent past and slowly leaning towards the Marvel Studio. Back in the 2005 and 2007, there had been a Fantastic Four and a sequel of that starring Loan Gruffudd as Reed Richards – a character almost symbolic to the billionaire, playboy and scientist Tony Stark of Avengers – Chris Evans (Captain America in MCU) as Johnny Storm, Jessica Alba as Sue Storm alongside Michael Chiklis as Ben Grimm.
