The movie Fantastic four, which will be Matt Shakman’s first depiction of Marvel’s most well-known superhero team (and the fifth FF film ever tried), has been the subject of recent rumours. Marvel fans are familiar with him as the creator of the well-liked WandaVision Disney+ series.
After directing three hugely successful Spider-Man movies, Jon Watts was set to helm the movie when Marvel initially announced it several months ago. However, Watts ultimately decided to depart the film in late April to focus on projects outside the Marvel Cinematic Universe. (He is creating his own Star Wars television series, Skeleton Crew, for Disney+.) No director was listed when Marvel formally confirmed the film’s release date in July.
Well, they announced his name today. Marvel’s Kevin Feige said Shakman would helm the studio’s Fantastic Four adaptation at the D23 Expo. You’ll have to wait a little longer to learn who will play Mister Fantastic, Invisible Woman, the Human Torch, and the Thing, according to Feige, who mentioned Shakman in the audience while speaking from the D23 Expo stage.
Shakman is a perfect choice for Fantastic Four because it is not only a sci-fi adventure movie but also a narrative about a close-knit family with Reed Richards married to Sue Storm, whose brother is Johnny Storm. WandaVision is known for its home drama and amazing special effects. (Ben Grimm is a dear friend of theirs.)
It is the first movie in Phase Six of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, including the upcoming Avengers sequels, The Kang Dynasty and Secret Wars, according to the announcements made so far.
