There Is Zero Chance Seeing Fantastic Four in MCU, Says Marvel Studios Boss


Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige recently opened up in an interview that seeing the "Fantastic Four" in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) has slim chances at this time.

In the Variety interview, Kevin Feige said there isn't a chance of striking a deal with rival studio Fox to make it happen. However, the MCU president did not go into detail why a partnership would not happen. The statement comes as a surprise for most fans because MCU managed to form a partnership for its upcoming TV show Legion, which is a spinoff of X-Men.

This results in not being able to see interactions of various big name Marvel superheroes interacting onscreen like X-Men interacting with Fantastic Four. That would be a dream come true for Marvel Comics fanatics.

In Captain America: Civil War, Marvel was able to strike a deal with Sony to allow Spider-Man to become part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Spider-Man was actually part of Iron Man's team when the Avengers ended up splitting up into two factions with Iron Man leading one team and Captain America leading the other. Captain America and Iron Man had an argument about who controls the Avengers but they ended up patching up their differences in the end.

Variety also asked Marvel boss Kevin Feige what he plans to do if Chris Evans and Robert Downey Jr. decide to move on from their iconic roles as Captain America and Iron Man respectively. Feige said he is lucky he does not have to make that decision anytime soon since he can't envision anybody else playing Captain America aside from Chris Evans and another actor playing Iron Man besides Robert Downey Jr. He did admit that multiple actors ended up playing iconic superheroes like Superman, Batman and James Bond but it is something he does not want to think about right now.
