Spider-Man: No Way Home director Jon Watts will take over the reins of The Fantastic Four for Marvel Studios. Kevin Feige has joked about his possible approach to the cast of the iconic superhero quartet.
Fantastic Four does not have a release date, but it is expected to be the grand finale of Phase 4 plans for Marvel studios. Jon watts (Spider-Man: No Way Home) will be in charge of directing the reboot, and although John krasinski and Emily blunt are still fan favorites to play Mister Fantastic Yet the Invisible Woman, no news about the cast has been released.
Something tells us that we won't start hearing anything on that front until the next Spider-Man movie comes out, but Kevin Feige shared an update, during an interview with ComicBook.com. The Marvel Studios boss, choosing his words carefully, hinted at a mix of familiar and new faces.
I think the MCU is a beautiful combination of both (established actors and new faces), Feige said. I don't think you have to look beyond Simu in Shang-Chi, like Chris Hemsworth, What Tom Hiddleston, What Tom holland, an actor who hasn't been seen by a tremendous amount of people before, or you have a Benedict stepping into Doctor Strange or Christian Bale stepping into Gorr in our Thor movie.
It's always a beautiful combination of both, he continued, and it really is about finding the best actor for the job, whether that actor is known to the world yet or not.
This combination could work perfectly for Fantastic Four, but the person we see in the movie will most likely depend on whether we get a team of teens or a group of adults. I don't think it's soon, Feige replied when asked about the cast news in July.
