RUMOR: Marvel Studios Targeting 2022 Release Date For FANTASTIC FOUR Reboot

We still know very little about Marvel's plans for the recently acquired Fox properties, but a new rumor suggests that the studio intends to tackle Fantastic Four before the X-Men, & sooner than expected.

Kevin Feige has previously stated that Marvel Studios won't begin to integrate The X-Men and Fantastic Four characters into the MCU for at least another five years, but if a new rumor is to be believed, it might be a little sooner than that for Marvel's First Family.

GWW has heard that the studio is eyeing a 2022 release date for a Fantastic Four reboot, and that Ant-Man director Peyton Reed is campaigning to helm the project. Reed has previously expressed interest in the property, pitching a '60s setting.

Although it does make sense that Feige and co. would prefer to tackle the FF before The X-Men with Fox's franchise still so fresh in people's minds, we'll have to take this with a massive pinch of salt for now. Even if there are some tentative plans in place, we all know how quickly things can change.

If Marvel really is aiming for a 2022 release (we know there are currently films dated for February 18th, May 6th, and July 19th) for Fantastic Four, there's a good chance we'll get confirmation at SDCC this year.
