MCU’s Fantastic Four Reboot is ‘No Way Home’ Director’s Next Film


Spider-Man: No Way Home is dominating the global box office, and director Jon Watts has found himself as one of the busiest filmmakers in Hollywood.


This week, it has been revealed that the Spidey helmer is leading the way as a producer on a Final Destination reboot for New Line Cinema. Last year, it was also revealed Watts was on board a project featuring George Clooney and Brad Pitt for Apple. With an increasingly full plate, it still looks like the director’s next project will indeed be set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.


In a recent Final Destination report from Variety, the trade mentions Marvel Studios’ Fantastic Four reboot is likely the next thing Watts will shoot. Interestingly enough, Fantastic Four still has yet to receive a release date from Marvel Studios, and virtually nothing has been revealed about the project outside the fact it’s something Marvel Studios is actively developing. No writer or cast has been attached to the project yet.


But if it is, in fact, Watts’ next project, it stands to reason the film will begin principal photography sometime this year and be released in late 2023 or early 2024.
