‘Ant-Man’ Director Peyton Reed On The Fantastic Four Entering The MCU

Fantastic Four MCU Peyton Reed

With the Disney-Fox deal closing soon, Ant-Man director Peyton Reed believes there are many ways the Fantastic Four can enter the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Marvel’s first family is close to coming home to Marvel Studios, thanks to Disney’s acquisition of 20th Century Fox. With the Fantastic Four potentially becoming apart of the MCU in the future, fans have speculated how the team could be introduced into the universe. Before taking over Ant-Man directorial duties from Edgar Wright, Reed developed a Fantastic Four film in the early 2000s before the Tim Story version. Reed continues to voice his enthusiasm for the Fantastic Four and finally doing the characters justice on the big screen. The Ant-Man director spoke with ComicBook.com and believes there are many different ways the Fantastic Four can enter the MCU:

“Well, listen: as a fan, I certainly find that intriguing, because in the comics realm, the Fantastic Four are the crown jewels of the Marvel Universe. They are the first family of Marvel. I think there is a version of Fantastic Four that has yet to be rendered in the movies that would really, really excite me, and I certainly think there are at least six different ways to introduce Fantastic Four into the Marvel Cinematic Universe in a really satisfying way.”
