A new rumor suggests two villains who will appear in Marvel’s “Fantastic Four” film reboot.
The news comes from industry scooper Jeff Sneider on THE HOT MIC, who revealed Marvel Studios is set to introduce not only the Fantastic Four in the team’s debut movie but also Galactus and Silver Surfer. Sneider also shared, “I’m told that Matt Shakman is planning to go very cosmic with his ‘Fantastic Four’ movie. Lots of 1960s elements, and that the film will feature both Galactus and the Silver Surfer.”
It’s important to note that there has also been a recent rumor that a Silver Surfer project is currently in the works at Marvel as a “Special Presentation” on Disney+.
As always, since nothing has been confirmed by Disney or Marvel, we will treat this as a rumor for now.
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.
