The MCU Fantastic Four Reboot Has a New Director. 

For years, seeing fan casting for the impending Marvel Studios’ Fantastic Four film has been a common occurrence. Many fans have wished for huge names, like as real-life pair John Krasinski and Emily Blunt, who play Reed Richards and Sue Storm, respectively.

After the critical and financial failure of 2015’s Fan4stic, which starred Miles Teller and Michael B. Jordan, there’s an extra layer of pressure to get this right. This century has seen three Fantastic Four films, none of which have grossed more than $160 million at the US box office. Only one MCU film has failed to achieve that milestone: The Incredible Hulk, which grossed $134 million domestically in 2008.

Casting well-known performers is nothing new for Marvel Studios; in Phase 4, the studio has previously used well-known talent like as Angelina Jolie, Harry Styles, Oscar Isaac, and Hailee Steinfeld.

Kevin Feige is looking for the next Super Team.

According to Deadline’s Justin Kroll, there is a “large mix of individuals” in the running to replace Jon Watts as Fantastic Four director after his sudden resignation. Kevin Feige, Marvel’s Chief Creative Officer, and his crew “are taking a lot of jabs at some major names.”

Fantastic Four is “clearly Marvel’s top ODA (Open Directing Assignment),” according to Kroll, but the choice will not be made quickly. One insider indicated that they would “be stunned if a decision is announced before Labor Day,” which is on September 5.

After Spider-Man: No Way Home director Jon Watts abruptly quit the project, Fantastic Four swiftly became Marvel’s first priority to fill the ODA.

There is presently no word on who may be cast or recruited as director. However, one person informed Kroll that “Kevin [Feige] doesn’t want to supervise the whole project, and after not having to worry about that with Raimi, he is very game to the same conclusion with this film.”
