Re: Future Marvel Cinematic Universe projects discussion thread - News, rumors, etc.

With the rights to the Fantastic Four back in Marvel’s hands, it seems they’ve already started planning how to introduce the First Family.

The GWW is hearing, but cannot confirm, that Marvel Studios is aiming for a 2022 release for the ‘Fantastic Four’ reboot. Sources also say that ‘Ant-Man’ director Peyton Reed is pushing to direct, and has already pitched his vision for the movie to Feige multiple times. Reed’s pitch includes a 1960s setting that involves the Quantum Realm, and possibly The Black Knight.

Reed has publicly stated his interest in setting a ‘Fantastic Four’ movie in the 60s, even going so far as to pitch to Fox when they had the rights.

“Visually, one of the things we always talked about – and this was 2003 – was The Fantastic Four as daytime superheroes. They don’t have secret identities. They’re very much a part of the fabric of Manhattan. In that universe, if you go to New York to the Empire State Building or the Statue of Liberty or the Baxter Building, it was all a part of that. We talked about it being a ’60s period movie, but Fox at the time was not into it.”
Kevin Feige plans on bringing Marvel to Hall H at San Diego Comic Con this year, it’s possible he reveals the release date for ‘Fantastic Four’ there. Marvel has a few dates booked for 2022, including February 18th, May 6th, and and July 19th. February is likely ‘Captain Marvel 2’, with ‘Guardians of the Galaxy vol. 3’ being May 6th, so July 19th makes the most sense.

The Fantastic Four were first created by Marvel Comics legend Stan Lee, and followed Mr. Fantastic, a man who has the ability to stretch his body any way he desires, Invisible Woman, who has the ability to turn invisible and generate force fields, Human Torch, who has the ability to engulf himself in flames, fly, and absorb fire, and The Thing, a man with super strength who is made up entirely of rocks.

Peyton Reed directed the first two ‘Ant-Man’ movies for Marvel Studios, as well as three episodes of the TV series ‘New Girl’.

That would be the ideal setting for the first film. Can’t wait.

Problem is, if you set it in the 60's, you can't really fold them into the MCU without time travel shenanigans.

It does mention the quantum realm. And I guess with Cap retired they could take up the “hero out of time” mantle.

Definetely in on the 60s setup. It would really help differentiate itself from the rest

Maybe they won't fold them into today's MCU.

We've never heard mention of the FF but that doesn't mean they couldn't have existed in the 1960's in the MCU. You could do a period piece and have them journey into the Negative Zone (actually the quantum realm) never to return. Leave it up in the air as to if or when they will return. Doing a second FF movie that doesn't take place on earth or connect with the overall continuity is no different than what they did with GOTG Volume 2.

Of course, you bring them back for the big tentpole event storyline, be it secret wars or whatever (Galactus!) but you don't have to start the movie in the 1960's and have the Torch doing a Marvel Team Up with Spider-Man by the end of the movie.

That's IT!!! They should do a Marvel Team-Up series of movies!

That was always one of my favorite titles... (Especially the Spider-Man and the Frankenstein Monster/Man-Wolf issues - great stuff!)

It would be interesting to see Spidey and the Not Ready for Prime Time Players team up on the big screen...
