Earlier today, during their panel in Hall H at SDCC, Marvel Studios announced a mountain of news regarding their planned MCU films and Disney+ tie-in shows for the next couple of years. Among those was the announcement that the Fantastic Four will hit theaters on November 8, 2024. Yowza, that’s a long time to wait.
Right now, Marvel’s plans for Phase 4 have been mixed at best and the Fantastic Four, which was previously planned to release much earlier, has seen an equally rocky start to production after losing a director and now being pushed all the way to Phase 6. We also still do not have any ideas on who the cast will be to fill the roles of the Fantastic 4 and presumably, Victor VonDoom but we assume casting is already underway with many suspecting that John Krasinski, who played a Multiversal Reed Richards in Multiverse of Madness, is the frontrunner to return to the role. However, Neither Krasinski nor Marvel Studios have confirmed or denied this.
The news of the Fantastic Four film finally getting its new release date, along with the titles of the next two Avengers films, Avengers: The Kang Dynasty (May 2, 2025) and Avengers: Secret Wars (Nov 7, 2025) comes from Hall H where the Marvel Studios panel announced a bunch of exciting new film projects including Blade (Nov 3, 2023), Captain America: New World Order (May 3, 2024), Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 3. (May 5, 2023), Thunderbolts (July 26, 2024), Fantastic Four (Nov 8, 2024), and a bunch of new Disney+ shows.
The Disney+ shows we can expect are Secret Invasion (Spring 2023), Echo (Summer 2023), Loki Season 2 (Summer 2023), Ironheart (Fall 2023), Agatha: Coven of Chaos (which seems to have changed its name from ‘House of Harkness’ – Winter 2023), and of course, most excitingly, Daredevil: Born Again (Spring 2024). Most of these we had heard of already and there are still so many previously announced series that have yet to make their Disney+ debut like She-Hulk, and others.
All of this and so much more is coming from Marvel Studios and we can expect that this will all play into something much, much bigger in what they are calling the “Multiverse Saga”.
