Kevin Feige recently appeared on The Official Marvel Podcast with the news.

“I’m incredibly excited for what we’re doing with The Fantastic Four right now and what Matt Shakman — our director who did WandaVision for us — is working on,” Feige said. “He’s already moved to London, and we start filming at the end of July. Funny story, we start shooting the Monday after Comic-Con.”

Feige continued, “I’m extremely excited by it because I think those characters are mainstays, are legendary pillars of the Marvel universe that we’ve never got to play with or explore in any significant way apart from Multiverse of Madness and a few fun teases before in the way that we’ are’re doing that in that film. So I’m extremely excited.”

He added, “I’m also excited for the two Avengers movies, and that will be after Fantastic Four.”

Regarding the setting of the movie, Feige teases the movie might not be exactly set in the world we know.

“It is a period film, and there was another piece of art we released with Johnny Storm flying in the air making a 4 symbol. There was a cityscape in that image,” Feige said. “There were a lot of smart people who noticed that that cityscape didn’t look exactly like the New York that we know or the New York that existed in the 60s in our world. Those are smart observations, I’ll say…”

Fantastic Four gets released on July 25, 2025 and also stars Julia Garner as Silver Surfer, Paul Walter-Hauser, John Malkovich, Ralph Ineson, and Natasha Lyonne..
