Marvel's Fantastic Four And One Of Their Villains Are Coming To The MCU
Marvel's first family is getting their own film set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
It's finally happening. Though there have been three Fantastic Four movies in the past outside of the shared universe represented in the MCU, Marvel's "first family" is finally making the jump into the main movie continuity as confirmed by Marvel Studios boss Kevin Feige during the Disney Investors Day live stream.
F4 will be a new MCU film directed by Spider-Man: Homecoming and Far From Home director Jon Watts.
Take a look at the movie's title treatment as shared by Marvel Studios' Twitter account.

Details about the project are still being kept under wraps, but the news comes hot on the heels of Feige's confirmation that Jonathan Majors will be joining Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania as Kang the Conqueror.
Kang, who originally debuted in the comics back in Fantastic Four #19, is also known as Nathaniel Richards, a time-displaced ancestor of Reed Richards, aka Mr. Fantastic. Kang's history is incredibly complex (unsurprising, given all the time travel) so it's entirely possible that the MCU will add new or unexpected twists to his story for his Ant-Man and The Wasp debut, but Fantastic Four fans will no doubt want to pay close attention to any and all Ant-Man related news for hints.
