Marvel Studios reportedly has started meeting with writers to write the script for the MCU’s Fantastic Four movie directed by Jon Watts.
Marvel Studios is currently meeting with writers for the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s Fantastic Four movie. The success of the MCU over the last decade has come even though Marvel Studios didn’t have access to some of its most popular and well-known comic characters. The X-Men and Fantastic Four were controlled by Fox, but that changed recently once Disney acquired the studio. This finally gave Marvel Studios access to mutants and Marvel’s First Family, and it is the latter that will get a full MCU reboot first.
One of the surprise announcements made by Kevin Feige near the end of 2020 was officially confirming development is underway on the MCU’s Fantastic Four. He revealed that Jon Watts, the director behind the Spider-Man: Homecoming trilogy, is attached to helm the movie. With Watts currently working on Spider-Man: Homecoming 3 ahead of a December 2021 release, it will still be a few years before Fantastic Four is released. The excitement about Reed Richards, Sue Storm, Johnny Storm, and Ben Grimm joining the MCU can’t be contained, though. This has left fans searching for any information possible about the movie.
