‘Spider-Man: Homecoming’ Director Jon Watts Helming New ‘Fantastic Four’ Movie
Marvel Chief Kevin Feige announced on Thursday that a new Fantastic Four movie is in development with Spider-Man Homecoming filmmaker Jon Watts.
20th Century released three Fantastic Four films starting in 2005. The latest installment in the Fantastic Four franchise which Fox tried to make anew in 2015 with director Josh Trank was riddled with production problems and failed at the box office with $167.8M. Disney took control over the Fantastic Four IP after its acquisition of key Fox assets, including 20th Century.
No further details were unveiled by Feige on Disney Investor Day.
