Marvel Studios’ “Fantastic Four” movie finally has a release date, and it might be a little bit further down the MCU timeline than you were expecting.
Announced Saturday in Marvel’s Hall H panel at San Diego Comic-Con, “Fantastic Four” will arrive in theaters on Nov. 8, 2024 — as a part of Phase 6, not Phase 5 as many fans anticipated; especially after a playful cameo in “Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.”
Earlier in Marvel’s SDCC panel, they unveiled the full Phase 5 lineup, which was missing two key titles folks were expecting to see in the lineup — “Fantastic Four” and “Avengers.” But both were ultimately unveiled as the panel came to a close and turned its attention to Phase 6.
“Fantastic Four” will arrive in November 2024 after Phase 5 closes with “Thunderbolts” on July 26, 2024. And while Marvel Studios did not reveal their full Phase 6 lineup, they did reveal that it will close out with two “Avengers” films: “Avengers: The Kang Dynasty” on May 2, 2025 and “Avengers: Secret Wars” on November 7, 2025. Altogether, we’re building up to what Marvel has officially dubbed “The Multiverse Saga” in the lead-up to the franchise’s next Thanos-level event.
