Deadline reports that Marvel Studios has now found its writers for its new Fantastic Four movie. Jeff Kaplan – not to be confused with Blizzard alum Jeff Kaplan – and Ian Springer head to the Baxter Building as they’re about to write the script for the highly anticipated movie.
Deadline’s sources added that Kaplan and Springer had been involved with the film for quite some time, even before Matt Shakman was signed on as director. More so, the duo helped define where this next series of films will fit in the Marvel Cinematic Universe alongside Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige.
News of Shakman’s signing as director was announced by Deadline before being confirmed at this year’s D23 Expo. Kaplan and Springer are still newcomers to the industry with the team best known for the 2013 indie comedy Bert and Arnie’s Guide to Friendship.
The new Fantastic Four movie will potentially kick off Phase 6, premiering on November 8, 2024. It will be followed by two Avengers movies, Avengers: The Kang Dynasty on May 2 of the same year and Avengers: Secret Wars six months later. .
As for the casting of the film, it has not yet been announced but several big stars are said to be attached, but nothing is confirmed yet and we are still far from any announcement regarding those.
