Writers Jeff Kaplan & Ian Springer join Fantastic 4
Fantastic Four will be released on November 8, 2024
Writers Jeff Kaplan and Ian Springer will reportedly pen the script of Fantastic Four, the highly-anticipated Marvel Cinematic Universe film. The duo will join director Matt Shakman to bring the classic comic superheroes to life.
Kaplan & Springer are currently attached to Warner Bros' project Disaster Wedding. In their first theatrical live-action adaptation, the Fantastic Four was played by Ioan Gruffudd (Mister Fantastic), Jessica Alba (Sue Storm / Invisible Woman), Michael Chiklis (Ben Grimm / Thing), and Chris Evans (Johnny Storm / Human Torch). The second version of the Fantastic Four tried to follow a completely different path, with a teen cast of characters in 2015.
It may be recalled that John Krasinski played the role of Mr Fantastic in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. The hero, however, belonged to a different timeline, and there’s no info on whether Marvel Studios will bring Krasinski back to play Mr Fantastic in Earth-616, the MCU main timeline.
Fantastic Four will be released on November 8, 2024.
