Fantastic Four MCU movie shares key detail with Spider-Man debut

The MCU’s new Fantastic Four movie, which is set to kick off Phase 6 in 2024, will share a key detail with Spider-Man: Homecoming – the fact that it will not be an origin story.

The film won’t be wasting time trying to establish a backstory for its characters, at least according to Marvel head Kevin Feige.

In a conversation with The Hollywood ReporterFeige said that the characters are so well-known that they don’t see a point in starting from the beginning.

“A lot of people know this origin story. A lot of people know the basics. How do we take that and bring something that they’ve never seen before?” he said.

“We’ve set a very high bar for ourselves with bringing that to the screen,” Feige added, stating that this team of superheroes are responsible for basically launching the Marvel Comics universe back in 1961.

Spider-Man: Homecomingwhich starred Tom Holland as everyone’s favorite web-slinger, served as the debut solo film for MCU’s Spider-Man and did not delve into the character’s origin story like Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield’s debut spider-man movies did.

The fact that Peter Parker is Spider-Man was already established in the film. It also did not spend time showing us Uncle Ben’s death for the third time, instead focusing on Peter’s regular high school life and Robert Downey Jr’s Iron Man becoming his reluctant mentor of sorts.
