the fantastic four opens in 2025 as the start of the sixth phase of the Marvel Cinematic Universe
the fantastic four will be led by Matt Shakman with a script written by Josh Friedmann. The latter entered the project months ago after a decision by Marvel Studios to completely reform the story.
Shakman is a veteran of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, being the director and producer of WandaVision (Vision and the Scarlet Witch). This is one of the franchise series that has received the best reviews.
Friedman worked with James Cameron on the screenplay for Avatar: The Water Sense and is writing Avatar 3. In addition, he is the creator of the series adaptation of Foundation by Isaac Asimov on Apple TV+.
The original script was in charge of Jeff Kaplan and Ian Springerbut ultimately decided to scrap it in search of a different tone for the Fantastic Four origin story.
Marvel Studios plays a lot with this movie. Previous adaptations, when the rights were held by Fox, were between mediocre to very bad. The 2005 film directed by Tim Story has an aggregate rating of 29% in Rotten Tomatoes. The sequel fared slightly better, with an aggregate rating of 37% in Rotten Tomatoesbut with a poor box office.
Then in 2015, Fox decided to reboot the franchise of the fantastic four with a film directed by Josh Trank that had a reception terrible by critics. only 9% of aggregate qualification in Rotten Tomatoes. In fact, this is considered one of the worst feature films ever made by Hollywood.
Any sequel was cancelled, but after Disney’s purchase of Fox, Marvel Studios decided to put the Fantastic Four on hiatus for a few years to try to separate as much as possible from the disaster of the previous adaptation.
That is why Disney/Marvel have to be especially careful with the new adaptation of these superheroes within their cinematographic universe. Especially in these times where there seems to be a high level of superhero fatigue in movies and TV.
