Fantastic Four MCU Movie Gets November 2024 Release Date, To Launch Phase Six
The Fantastic Four has a release date: November 8, 2024. At San Diego Comic-Con 2022, two and a half years after first unveiling its vision for Marvel’s First Family, Marvel Studios announced that its Fantastic Four movie will arrive in less two and a half years in theaters. Additionally, Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige revealed that The Fantastic Four would kick off Phase Six of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Feige didn’t reveal any cast members, however — perhaps he’s saving that reveal for Disney’s D23 Expo 2022 in September — but he did say filming would begin in 2023.
But Feige hasn’t announced a new director for the Fantastic Four movie, suggesting that Marvel Studios is still looking for a replacement for Jon Watts, the director behind Spider-Man: Homecoming, Spider-Man: Far From. Home and Spider-Man: No Returning Home. While Watts was revealed as director when The Fantastic Four was first announced in late 2020, he stepped down earlier in 2022. Everyone assumed the track record of directing three major MCU Spider-Man movies had come to Watts, but about a month later , he signed up to do Jude Law-directed Star Wars: Skeleton Crew.
Directing the Fantastic Four reboot is an even bigger task given the critical and box office reception of previous attempts, produced under the former 20th Century Fox. The 2005s directed by Jessica Alba and Chris Evans The Fantastic Four and 2007’s Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer received lackluster reviews. And after the sequel grossed far less than the studio expected, more movies in that series were canceled. Fox rebooted Fantastic Four in 2015 starring Miles Teller, Michael B. Jordan and Kate Mara, but it failed both critically and commercially.
Before the MCUs The Fantastic Four, Marvel’s big-screen efforts include Ryan Coogler’s Black Panther: Wakanda Forever on Nov. 11, Paul Rudd-directed Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania – the Phase Five launch – in February 2023, James’ final chapter. Gunn Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 in May 2023, The Marvels with Brie Larson’s Captain Marvel and Iman Vellani’s Ms. Marvel in July 2023, directed by Mahershala Ali Blade in November 2023, and Love at first sight – closing of phase five – in July 2024.
The Fantastic Four hits theaters worldwide on November 8, 2024. It will be followed by Avengers: The Kang Dynasty in May 2025 and Avengers: Secret Wars in November 2025. Two more MCU Phase Six movies are scheduled for 2025.
