Russo Brothers set to bring iconic family into the MCU?

October 3rd, 2019 by Geralt of Australia Comments

With Anthony and Joe Russo both taking a little break from Marvel after the massive success of Endgame, a lot of people thought that would be in for two of Marvel’s greatest directors, but it sounds like the Russos aren’t out quite yet as they set their sights on another project already confirmed by Marvel, The Fantastic Four.

In a new interview  Joe Russo had a bit to say on the heroes: “I grew up on John Byrne’s  X-Men run. Ben Grimm was a favorite character growing up, the Thing. And Fantastic Four is now in the Marvel fold. There’s a lot. Silver Surfer is an amazing character. Going really big in cosmic would be a lot of fun. So there’s a lot of things that could attract us.”

Now this could go one of two ways, so far both Fantastic Four movie franchises have flopped under Fox although they license is now back with Disney/Marvel, and the only people to have made something out of it were the Human Torch’s Chris Evans (MCU Captain America) and Michael B Jordan (MCU Killmonger), this was a great boost to both of their careers, launching Chris Evans into the MCU and Michael B Jordan into Creed, but if it doesn’t work this time round then the actors can no longer come back into the MCU if it flops.

Ideally, I think it would be smarter to do a Silver Surfer movie to introduce both him and Galactus, while saving the Fantastic Four to be used as extra characters in something such as the new Doctor Strange movie: bring the Fantastic Four through the multiverse, if they do this they can bring in the 2015 versions in, and if no-one likes them then they can just kill them off and bring in another set from a different universe (I’m only half kidding).

Fantastic Four is definitely a risk, but done properly it will open up a whole other section of the MCU that has yet to be tapped into.

Stay tuned for more news and like always, stay nerdy.
