Marvel Studios Should Consider 7 Directors for ‘Fantastic Four’ 

Who is the greatest choice to resurrect Marvel’s founding family? Following the completion of the Disney-Fox agreement, many MCU fans were pleased that The Fantastic Four would finally join the MCU, and Marvel Studios has already begun planning their appearance. The classic Marvel team is presently poised to complete Phase 4 with a remake film, and theories have circulated regarding who would play each member. While no official casting news has emerged, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness did debut John Krasinski as Richard Reeds/Mr. Fantastic, and the reboot did find a director early on, with MCU Spider-Man filmmaker Jon Watts originally intended to direct. 

Who is the greatest choice to resurrect Marvel’s founding family? 

Following the completion of the Disney-Fox agreement, many MCU fans were pleased that The Fantastic Four would finally join the MCU, and Marvel Studios has already begun planning their appearance. The classic Marvel team is presently poised to complete Phase 4 with a remake film, and theories have circulated regarding who would play each member. While no official casting news has emerged, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness did debut John Krasinski as Richard Reeds/Mr. Fantastic, and the reboot did find a director early on, with MCU Spider-Man filmmaker Jon Watts originally intended to direct. 

However, the Fantastic Four revival has encountered a hiccup, with Watts departing the project, claiming a desire to take a break from superhero movies for a time. A valid explanation, but the Fantastic Four now lacks a commander, and Marvel Studios must find a suitable substitute. Fortunately, they have a plethora of excellent alternatives for incorporating The Fantastic Four into the MCU. 

Reed, Peyton (Ant-Man, Ant-Man and the Wasp) 

Marvel

Peyton Reed, who directed all of the Ant-Man films in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, is the best filmmaker to compare to Watts. 

With Reed already being an MCU graduate, he would fit right in, and the tone of Ant-humor Man’s and sci-fi action isn’t all that unlike to that of Fantastic Four. Plus, with the forthcoming Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania, he’s likely to determine the path of the MCU moving forward, so why not have him also introduce an essential new squad of heroes? 

Krasinski, John (A Quiet Place Franchise) 

Marvel

Is-John-Krasinski-in-The-Fantastic-Four-Movie-feature To be honest, since Krasinski is already scheduled to portray Mr. Fantastic in the next remake, it wouldn’t be unexpected if Marvel Studios hired him to helm as well. 

With both A Quiet Place pictures, Krasinski has shown himself to be a very talented filmmaker, and why go for a director when you have one right in front of you? Fans would undoubtedly appreciate the option, and Krasinski seems to be up to the challenge. 

Chow, Deborah (Obi-Wan Kenobi Series) 

Marvel

The new Obi-Wan Kenobi series for Disney+ will reintroduce Ewan McGregor as the fan-favorite Jedi, with director Deborah Chow scheduled to handle the whole series, and if it works out, it wouldn’t be surprising if Marvel Studios hired her to film Fantastic Four. 

Kevin Feige, the chairman of Marvel Studios, has indicated interest in having a more diverse lineup of filmmakers work in the MCU, and Chow’s expertise in the genre and directing has made her more than qualified to direct Fantastic Four. If Obi-Wan Kenobi becomes a huge success, don’t be shocked if Chow becomes a frontrunner. 

Whannell, Leigh (The Invisible Man, Upgrade) 

MarvelGiven his affinity for the horror genre, Leigh Whannell would be a long shot for Fantastic Four, but Marvel Studios should not neglect him. 

The DCEU has profited greatly by bringing well-known horror filmmakers into the field to produce their superhero films, and with films like Upgrade and The Invisible Man, Whannell has shown his distinct vision for sci-fi that would be fantastic to see in a Fantastic Four picture. 

Lin, Justin (Fast and Furious Franchise) Marvel

With the announcement that Fast and Furious veteran Justin Lin is leaving the next tenth chapter, it’s feasible that he’ll have time to join the MCU to helm Fantastic Four. 

Given his past with the Fast and Furious series, Lin is no stranger to helming massive franchises for years on end, and his films have shown that he can work on a wide scale and scope while still delivering immensely enjoyable action. Not to add, he’s been a key part of developing the Fast and Furious family, which is something the MCU will undoubtedly want with its Fantastic Four flicks. 

Herron, Kate (Loki Series) Marvel

kate-herron-loki get-together Another MCU veteran who may helm Fantastic Four is Loki filmmaker Kate Herron, whose great work on Loki should make her a strong choice. 

Herron has demonstrated that she can direct tales that connect with audiences, which Fantastic Four will need when it premieres. Loki remains one of the MCU’s most adored series, and set off a period of traveling into the universe, so she can absolutely take on large jobs. 

Mr. Travis Knight (Bumblebee) 

Marvel

It’s mind-boggling that filmmaker Travis Knight hasn’t been snatched up by major studios for comparable large projects after Bumblebee virtually salvaged the Transformers brand. He would be an excellent candidate for Marvel Studios if he was cast in Fantastic Four. 

His emotive heart and amazing action in both Bumblebee and his animated directorial debut Kubo and the Two Strings would be ideal for a Fantastic Four film. Knight is the kind of innovative and easy-to-like filmmaker who would fit right in with the MCU, and Fantastic Four is a good vehicle for him to enter the fray.

Doctor Strange 2 : Scarlet Witch vs. Strange Deleted Fight Scene – FanArt

Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness stunned fans straight away by revealing that the Scarlet Witch will be the film’s principal adversary. This res

Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness stunned fans straight away by revealing that the Scarlet Witch will be the film’s principal adversary. This resulted in some really fantastic battle sequences between the MCU’s two most powerful magic-wielders, but there’s been a lot of talk about more of it appearing in deleted scenes.

The majority of that attention has been focused on the sequel’s abandoned opening scene, in which Wanda Maximoff would have killed Earth-616’s Baron Mordo. She would have decapitated him and gave Strange the severed head when they first met at the farm, leaving little mistake about who Strange would face during Doctor Strange 2.

Over the last several months, concept art has also hinted more deleted sequences, including a flashback to Strange losing his sister at the lake and a tease showing the wicked Nightmare in action. Fans can now see more deleted Scarlet Witch action, which would have pitted her against Strange once again early in the Multiversal sequel.

Doctor Strange 2’s Deleted Scarlet Witch Battle Illustrator David Allcock released a collection of storyboard drawings including a previously uncovered deleted sequence from Marvel Studios’ Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness through Twitter user @itsjustanx. This scenario would have pitted Doctor Strange against the Scarlet Witch as Strange and America Chavez jumped across the Multiverse after leaving Kamar-Taj.

Strange uses his magic to free Chavez from the Scarlet Witch’s grasp while Chavez opens one of her star portals.

The scene when Chavez falls through with the blue light from her portal around her in-frame seems very similar to what appeared in the final cut of the film.

It would have had the Scarlet Witch really pursue Strange and Chavez into the star gate, employing images similar to those seen before when the villain was pushing through mirrors.

Along with Wanda pursuing the heroic team, they would have encountered other demons while traversing the Multiverse. There was even a chance they’d run across one of the more sinister Strange Variants, akin to how Earth-616’s good doctor confronted Sinister Strange at the conclusion of the narrative.

As the Scarlet Witch pursued Strange and Chavez, she would release more of her actual power, which she had garnered while delving into the pages of the Darkhold.

In her chase, the villain would have seized Chavez by the wrist, however it’s uncertain whether the action would have progressed as it did in the final edit of Doctor Strange 2.

Marvel Parallels Avoided With Deleted Scene?

New Doctor Strange 2 Art Reveals Deleted Scarlet Witch vs. Strange Fight

With Doctor Strange 2 clocking in at little over two hours, it’s hardly unexpected that so many deleted scenes and concept art have been published now that the film has come and gone. This sequence would have certainly added a couple of minutes to the running length, although it’s unclear whether it would have come with the universe-jumping scene or taken its place entirely.

Furthermore, given Marvel’s vast history, this deleted battle has some resemblance to another sequence seen by fans in 2017’s Thor: Ragnarok, which starred Thor, Loki, and Hela. This three got into a similar brawl when Loki summoned the Bifrost to transport him and Thor to Asgard, prompting Hela to leap in and fling them over the rainbow bridge into the uncharted realms of space.

In the end, it looks that this confrontation between Doctor Strange and the Scarlet Witch was never even pre-visualized, since this is the first time fans have seen this scene shown in public. While it would have undoubtedly provided another fantastic combat scene to the already packed film, leaving it out maintained some of the emphasis on Strange and America as they began their first journey across the Multiverse.

Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is now available to watch on Disney+.

Spider-Man: No Way Home Extended Cut Trailer Is Now Available

Spider-Man: No Way Home, the third-highest-grossing MCU film ever, is poised to return to cinemas across the globe in the coming weeks. Sony and Marvel are

Spider-Man: No Way Home, the third-highest-grossing MCU film ever, is poised to return to cinemas across the globe in the coming weeks. Sony and Marvel are preparing to send fans back to the MCU’s first real Multiversal event, “The More Fun Stuff Version,” when Tom Holland’s third and largest solo Spidey trip takes a second run on the big screen.

The extended edit of No Way Home will feature 11 minutes of material that did not make the initial theatrical release in December 2021, according to reports. More material starring Charlie Cox’s “very smart lawyer,” Matt Murdock, as well as other exchanges with Holland and the two other Spider-Men, portrayed by Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield, are possible.

The advertising tour for the new No Way Home extended cut began with a new poster that included all three Spider-Men, as well as all five villains and a scattering of supporting characters. This promotional tour now continues with a new trailer for the film, however it doesn’t exactly include any…new stuff.

New Trailer for No Way Home Extended Cut

Watch: Spider-Man: No Way Home Extended Cut Trailer Released

Sony Pictures has published a 30-second clip for Spider-Man: No Way Home’s theatrical re-release, which begins on August 31 in Indonesia.

Surprisingly, despite the promise that fresh material would be added in this edit, this teaser has no new footage.

The commercial focuses mostly on Peter’s struggles with the film’s five Multiversal antagonists, including Happy Hogan’s phone conversation in which he asks Peter who they are all. The closing scene of the teaser depicts Peter leaping into fight against the criminals, with the other two Spider-Men cut out, but the Lizard is still hit by the air, exactly as he was in the second trailer.

The whole trailer is available below:

Sony is back with another Spider-Man trailer.

Sony Pictures rocketed to the top of the entertainment business with the original release of Spider-Man: No Way Home, despite a difficult couple of years of releases. The studio had its most successful film ever, shattering box office records and generating over $2 billion in its first run.

Despite the hype for the “More Fun Stuff Version,” Sony made no attempt to tease anything new that would be presented in this new edit of the threequel. The studio didn’t even bother to replace the scene of all three Spider-Men leaping into fight on the Statue of Liberty, instead settling for the error-filled picture in which the Lizard is assaulted by a secret figure.

Regardless of these gaffes, anticipation is growing for what Sony and Marvel have in store with material not included in the initial December 2021 edit. And, if nothing else, the threequel is still one of the most popular superhero films in history, which should be plenty to entice fans to return to the big screen a few more times.

Marvel’s Biggest Multiverse Reveal Is Wasted

This article contains Edge of Spider-Verse #2 spoilers.Marvel Comics squandered their most significant multiverse disclosure. Multiverses may be trendy rig

This article contains Edge of Spider-Verse #2 spoilers.

Marvel Comics squandered their most significant multiverse disclosure. Multiverses may be trendy right now, but Marvel Comics has been using the notion for decades. The finest multiverse tales allow you to ponder the question “What If…?” – to picture universes where heroes were beaten instead of triumphing, planets were broken, or entire new champions created. Sometimes these “What If…?” tales help to establish concepts that will ultimately make their way into the regular comic book narrative, and maybe even into the movies themselves. In the comics, Jane Foster initially appeared as Thor.

Edge of Spider-Verse #2 features “A Single Thread,” a short narrative by Dan Slott and Paco Medina that has just been used to change the history and nature of the entire Marvel world. The universe started untold billions of years ago, long after the ancient Elder Gods were expelled, according to Edge of Spider-Verse #2. Gaea and Oshtur started producing new gods and demigods, and they entrusted the construction of the universe to the early spider-goddess Neith. She fashioned the Web of Life and Destiny, which is centered on Earth-001. Finally, the Spider-hidden Verse’s genesis has been exposed.

Marvel has just rewritten the structure of the whole multiverse.

It’s odd, though, that Marvel practically squandered such a big disclosure. The real nature of the universe is introduced in what seems to be a tangent or side-story to the main event, rather than in a large ” event ” issue with a great amount of hype behind it. This choice is even more astounding considering the importance of multiverses in popular culture, and Marvel Comics’ own multiverse is now serving as inspiration for the MCU’s. Spider-Man: No Way Home, like the comics, has established spider-characters as prominent players in the universe.

Marvel Wastes Its Biggest Multiverse Reveal

To be fair to Marvel, Edge of Spider-Verse #2 does have some backstory. The first Edge of Spider-Verse miniseries debuted with the original Spider-Verse storyline in 2014, and its second issue featured the famous Spider-Gwen. Marvel may have decided to make the second issue of this new Edge of Spider-Verse miniseries seem just as important – but if so, the comic book publisher could have pushed it more aggressively.

It’s enthralling to discover the real genesis and nature of the MCU’s cosmos. The important issue is whether it will survive much longer; this tie-in is tied with the End of the Spider-Verse event, implying that the multiverse’s laws are going to be altered. Marvel’s universe has been defined, but it may not last.
