Fantastic Four Confirmed For November 2024
Marvel’s first family is finally coming home.
Marvel left no stone unturned at the Hall H panel, giving fans some long overdue confirmations. Among them, was news about Marvel’s first family’s homecoming outing. Marvel Studios dated Fantastic Four for a Nov 8, 2024, without a director or a cast in sight yet.
The timing is interesting because this is right before Avengers: The Kang Dynasty. As such, Fantastic Four could turn out to be similar to either Ragnarok or Black Panther in terms of having a direct connection to the next Avengers movie. And just like T’Challa from Black Panther, Reed Richards could play a pivotal role in birthing or defeating Kang, which explains the placement of the movie. It’s thus downright important for Feige to get this one right.
Furthermore, Fantastic Four as a franchise has been home to Doctor Doom, one of the most popular villains of the Marvel Universe, coming close to Norman Osborn. Doom’s popularity is already leading fans to believe that he could very well be the overarching antagonist of the MCU’s next saga. But would Marvel leave that to Doom, or relegate him to just one movie? That’s something we’re going to have to wait and watch.
John Krasinski may have played Reed Richards in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness but it remains to be seen whether he agrees to become the Reed Richards of Earth-616.
