Marvel Studios Head Kevin Feige may have just teased the Fantastic Four joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
In a clip recently revealed at The Saturn Awards, Kevin Feige is introducing an alternate post-credits scene from Iron Man. However, if you’re paying close attention, you can see the cover of The Fantastic Four #1 (November 1961) on the left-hand side.
You can check out the Kevin Feige clip with the first ever The Fantastic Four comic cover below.

We know Kevin Feige is hard at work trying to integrate the formerly Fox-owned Marvel properties into the MCU, but we don’t have a timeline as to when The Fantastic Four and the X-Men will be going into the battle alongside the likes of Captain Marvel, Thor and the Guardians of the Galaxy. In an interview taken earlier this year, Kevin Feige stated that he’s looking forward to bringing the Fantastic Four to the MCU and hopes that they’re brought to a respected platform.
The comic cover in the video is the first ever Fantastic Four issue, which may give us an indication as to where Kevin Feige and his team are drawing inspiration from. This issue was written by Stan Lee. The cover was created by Jack Kirby and inker Christopher Rule.
The Fantastic Four are set to be part of Marvel Studios’ future plans following the universe-changing events of Avengers: Endgame. Here’s the official synopsis for the latest Avengers movie:
The grave course of events set in motion by Thanos that wiped out half the universe and fractured the Avengers ranks compels the remaining Avengers to take one final stand in Marvel Studios’ grand conclusion to twenty-two films, “Avengers: Endgame.”
