The long awaited The Fantastic Four the Marvel Studios reboot is slowly building up.

The Fantastic Four received a new update on Wednesday, with a report from Deadline revealing that Jeff Kaplan and Ian Springer will write the screenplay. The film appears to be in the early stages of development, targeting a November 8, 2024 release date.
Where is Marvel at with the cast?
As for who will play Reed Richards, Sue Storm, Johnny Storm and Ben Grimm in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Deadline added that there was “no casting on board” and that “Feige and Shakman will now focus on finding actors while the script is being written”.
