New Report Suggests Fantastic Four is Closer Than we Think
It was one of the most notable updates in the announcements made at San Diego Comic-Con, that the MCU debut of Marvel’s first family was moved to the start of Phase Six, but a new report suggests that, despite the change, Fantastic Four is closer than we think.
There is little overstating the excitement from Marvel fans at the upcoming MCU debut of one of the oldest and most popular Marvel teams in the history of the publication; the Fantastic Four.
Marvel’s first family is one of the most beloved comic book entities in the history of the medium, and following two adaptations of varying success levels, the Marvel Cinematic Universe is set to take their chance at bringing the team to life on the big screen.
With the team, long being slated to bookend the event of Phase Four, last month’s San Diego Comic-Con established that a redistribution of the projects has positioned the Fantstic Four film to instead be the first film in Phase Six.
With the delay worrying a lot of fans of the iconic Marvel team, the change may not necessarily signify a massive delay, as a new report suggests that the MCU’s Fantastic Four is closer than we think.
The report has come from The Direct, who made note of a new Disney Limited Liability Corporation (LLC) that has been confirmed to be covering a Marvel Studios project.
The Direct reported that “The LLC goes by the name ‘4vibes productions'” noting that the ‘4’ in the title could be directly pointing to the Fantastic Four project that this just on the horizon; although it is thus far unconfirmed and completely speculation at this point.
Some more evidence confirms, however, that whatever this LLC is referring to, it, “will be a live-action project shot in the United Kingdom, potentially at either Pinewood UK Studios or Longcross Studios.”
What is significant about this development is that this same UK space was used for the shooting of Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumnai, and The Marvels.
The space also has access to the revolutionary Stageworks Volume Technology, the brand new visual Effects system used on projects like Thor: Love and Thunder, and the third Ant-Man film; likely being a key part of the upcoming Fantastic Four adaptation.
Only time will tell if this information proves to be accurate, but one thing is certain; D23 should have some information for the upcoming MCU film with its filming date likely occurring sometime in the near future.
