As some of you may know, Fantastic Four has been officially announced as one of Marvel Studios‘ upcoming movies for the MCU. Even more exciting is Jon Watts, director of both Spider-Man: Homecoming and Far From Home, will be directing this movie as well.

What does this mean for the MCU? I’m not sure. One of my hopes though is that Spider-man and Human Torch‘s friendship will be shown on screen just like best friend relationship in the comics. I think it would make for fun interactions seeing 2 superheroes from the younger generation geek out while the older Avengers get confused.
