Marvel’s ‘Fantastic Four’ Reportedly Eyeing January 2024 Filming Start

Marvel’s “Fantastic Four” film reboot is slated to open in theaters on February 14, 2025, and according to a new report filming on the project could begin early next year.

The news comes from THR which reports the film is eyeing a January 2024 start date in London. That could change, if the strike were to drag on and on for six months or more, though according to sources that is seen as unlikely. 

The outlet further points out, even if the strike lasts just one month or six weeks, there would likely be an impact, with more movies’ start dates being pushed among the repercussions.

“There’s a billion dollars net in production costs that are exposed because of the strike. That’s certainly a concern,” says one source involved with the Marvel’s current slate of projects regarding those in or about to go into production.

Not much is known about the “Fantastic Four” reboot except characters Reed Richards (Mister Fantastic), Sue Storm (Invisible Woman), Johnny Storm (Human Torch) and Ben Grimm (The Thing) will return.

Matt Shakman (WandaVision) is confirmed to direct “Fantastic Four.”  Josh Friedman (Avatar: The Way of Water) has reportedly been tapped to write the script.  Jeff Kaplan and Ian Springer were the previous writers of the project.

Moon Knight producers Grant Curtis and Nick Pepin will also serve as producers on the new “Fantastic Four” film along with Kevin Feige.

No official casting news has been announced yet.

Marvel’s “Fantastic Four” is scheduled to hit theaters on February 14, 2025.
