‘WandaVision’ Matt Shakman Is CONFIRMED by Marvel as Director of New ‘Fantastic Four’
Marvel has finally made it official that the director of the reboot of its new ‘Fantastic Four‘, during panel at D23, will be Matt Shakmanwho would direct the fourth film from ‘Star Trek‘.
Remembering that ‘Fantastic Four‘ was looking for a new director since leaving Jon Wattsand just found Shakman as a substitute.
It is worth noting that the filmmaker is an old acquaintance of the house of ideas, as he was the director of ‘WandaVision‘, one of the studio’s biggest ratings hits on Disney+.
Kevin Feige ended up disappointing some fans who were waiting for the announcement of the cast of the film, saying that there would be no more news about the ‘Fantastic Four’ during the panel after the announcement of the new director. Scheduled for release in November 2024, the film will kick off Phase 6 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
This will be the fourth attempt to honor the team’s legacy, following the Roger Corman in 1994, the failed mini-franchise of Tim Story started in 2005, and the version of Josh Trank in 2015, which was massacred by the public and critics.
For now, there is no other information about the upcoming adaptation.
The last reboot of ‘Fantastic Four‘ was one of the biggest fiascos of critics and audiences in recent history, while the chaotic behind the scenes generated one of the most interesting stories in the film industry (especially when it was revealed that one of the actors almost came to blows with the director Josh Trank).
The remake of ‘Fantastic Four‘ cost $120 million and just collected it US$ 167 million worldwide.
