Marvel Reportedly Looking at ‘Big Names’ to Direct Fantastic Four Film

June 2, 2022

The Marvel Studios calendar is filled through July 2023, but possibly the most anticipated upcoming MCU film is one that’s premiering further down the line. Kevin Feige announced in December 2020 that a Fantastic Four feature was in development, and would be directed by the architect of the MCU Spider-Man trilogy Jon Watts. However, Watts unexpectedly announced earlier this year that he was stepping away from the project, setting back Marvel’s plans for the film. The director’s chair for Fantastic Four has yet to be filled, and according to Deadline’s Justin Kroll, the position may remain vacant for a little while longer:
