If anything, this later date makes me think it's less likely to get an official casting announcement soon, but we'll see. Clearly they do have to shoot next Spring/Summer.

I think they have the cast and director already hired. Announcements in the press are always weeks/months behind. As said, they are probably saving it for D23.

Maybe they're saving the X stuff for D23.

I really hope that they don't keep John Krasinski as Reed Richards. I did not like him in that role in the Doctor Strange movie. He didn't look or sound like Reed Richards.

He was miscast.

They have an out with the multiverse thing, and I hope they use it.

Something tells me they won't, though.

I don't care- as long as he comes to the same end as he did in the DS movie.

Re: Marvelís Fantastic Four (2024 D: Shakman) - news, rumors, etc.

EXCLUSIVE: With Matt Shakman boarding as director, Marvel Studios has now find its writers to deliver the new Fantastic Four pic as sources tell Deadline Jeff Kaplan and Ian Springer are on board to write the script for the highly-anticipated film. Insiders add the writing duo have actually been involved with the film for some time, even before Shakman was tapped as director, and have been outlining where this next series of films will fit into the Marvel Cinematic Universe alongside Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige. Kaplan, Springer and Shakman will now come together to align their visions for this project before Kaplan and Springer dive into writing the script. Feige is producing the pic.

Marvel had no comment.

At the recent D23 event early this month, Feige did confirm Shakman as director of the film but said that was all he had for the audience for now with no cast currently on board. Feige and Shakman will now focus on finding that team while the script is being written. Fantastic Four has been an highly-anticipated property for MCU fans going back to when Disney acquired Fox and absorbed all its assets; those included Fantastic Four. Ever since fans have been wondering when they would get that new series of films, and Feige delivered that answer at this year’s Comic-Con in San Diego, saying the film would kick off Phase 6, bowing on November 8, 2024. It will be followed by two Avengers movies: Avengers: The Kang Dynasty on May 2 of that year, and Avengers: Secret Wars just six months later.

As for Kaplan and Springer, while new to the scene, the writing duo is one of the hotter screenwriters in town having sold a number of specs in the last year. One of those high-profile projects is the comedy Disaster Wedding at Warner Bros. which recently landed Palm Springs helmer Max Barbakow on to direct.

They are repped by MGMT, Gersh and attorney Ben Rubinfeld.

The world's smartest man. A good proxy would be Edward Witten, the only physicist to ever win the Fields Medal in Mathematics. Most people inside physics consider him the smartest man alive.

You think a major Marvel super hero should sound like that?

Like Gerald Mohr. Or, short of that, like Ioan Gruffud.

And he looks more like Gruffud.

New writer hired



If the name doesn't ring a bell, he's written a lot of sci-fi TV and movies in addition to Avatar.

Sounds like there must be significant issues with the script. Doubt this makes that Feb 2025 date now.

Considering how dire the situation is with visual effects houses, they need to get the ball rolling. A complete re-write, no cast yet. They are definitely behind.

Production isn’t scheduled until early 2024. There’s plenty of time.

So the current scuttlebutt is that Adam Driver is about to sign on to play Reed Richards.

And they're looking at Austin Butler to play Johnny Storm.

And there's a laundry list of current Hollywood "it girls" in the running to play Sue Storm: Amanda Seyfried, Allison Williams, Mila Kunis, Vanessa Kirby, Jodie Comer, and Rachel Brosnahan.

I have to say that I think Jodie Comer would be a good choice to play off of Adam Driver if he ends up being cast as Mr. Fantastic. Though I do like Vanessa Kirby's name.

Driver and Butler are both awful picks.
