‘Fantastic Four’ movie leak reveals exciting update on MCU reboot

After losing the director in 2021, Marvel’s Fantastic Four films are rapidly gaining momentum in 2022. Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness officially introduced Reed Richards (aka, Mister Fantastic) into the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and more recent reports suggest that the studio is actively seeking a top director to tackle the project.

Now, a new leak reveals some interesting details about the MCU’s plans for Marvel’s first family, and how this version of the Fantastic Four could fit into the company’s larger continuity.

Fantastic Four leak reveals name and location

Ronin reports that Disney has formed a new Limited Liability Company (LLC) called “4vibes Productions,” which will focus on production Fantastic Four. It’s a fairly common practice for the industry, but its name here feels like a strong hint that F4 is taking the next important step. The report also notes that the film will be shot primarily in the UK, either at Pinewood UK Studios or Longcross Studios.

This may not sound like a big deal, but it could be more important than you think. For one thing, the fact that Disney formed this LLC shows that despite the initial hiccup of losing director Jon Watts, Fantastic Four move forward without any real delay. There is still no official release date, but assuming that shooting starts this year, we should see the film in Summer 2024.

But the bigger deal here could be the Fantastic Four shooting location. It’s not uncommon for Marvel to shoot in the UK, but it does put the film in some interesting companies. Especially, Doctor Strange in Multiverse of Madness also filmed in England. Given that the film features John Krasinski as a multiversal variant of Reed Richards, does this mean Krasinski will return to play the character in the main MCU continuity? It’s definitely possible.

Fantastic Four and Kang the Conqueror

Even more interesting is what will happen next. Ant-Man: Quantumia also filmed in the UK and premiering in early 2023. The film is set to feature Jonathan Majors as Kang the Conqueror, a new time-traveling Marvel villain who many believe will play a major role in the MCU similar to Thanos. Could it be that Kang will also play a role in Fantastic Four?

In the comics, Kang is often associated with that team of superheroes — and he may or may not be a distant descendant of Reed Richards. So again, it’s definitely possible.

As Marvel Fantastic Four plans are taking shape, there’s no telling how the film will fit into the MCU’s grand ambitions, but it’s already one of the most important films post-war.End game era.
