'Fantastic Four' (Marvel)

Disney have been holding on to the rights to 'Fantastic Four' for a while and fans have been wondering how long it will be until the FF join the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Now, Marvel's First Family is finally coming home to Marvel Studios with their first film set in that fantastic universe. After the first two attempts to bring their comics to life failed, there are a lot of hopes riding on their MCU introduction. Stay tuned to this page for news, casting announcements, plot, release dates, trailers, and everything else you need to know about Marvel's latest addition to their superhero roster.


The Fantastic Four is based on a long-running comic series about a family imbued with strange and fantastic cosmic powers. Reed Richards takes his family - his wife, Sue Storm, her brother, Johnny Storm and Reed's best friend, Ben Grimm, on an unauthorized trip to space, where the four are hit by a storm filled with cosmic radiation. When they return to Earth, they are each imbued with unique powers - Reed can stretch, Sue can turn invisible and project forcefields, Johnny can light himself on fire and fly and Ben Grimm becomes a deformed rock monster.

This is the third live-action movie version of the Fantastic Four series that has been produced - both attempts have done poorly among both critics and the box office. Fans are currently hoping that the third time is the charm. No details have arrived yet as to what the plot of the new MCU Fantastic Four film will be.
