Joss Whedon attached to MCU’s Fantastic Four movie

Well, this could be a turn up for the books as it seems that Avengers and Avengers: Age of Ultron witer/director Joss Whedon may be set to return to to the MCU.

According to a new report by John Campea, Whedon has been approached by Marvel/Disney about bringing the Fantastic Four into the MCU.

Now, Campea does say it may have been a casual meeting or brainstorming  but he also said that he may be being looked at for a directing return.

While Whedon had a rough time at Marvel/Disney during the making of Age of Ultron, it cannot be argued that he is largely responsible for the tone of the MCU after his work on the first Avengers and his subsequent helping with other movies including Iron Man 3.

However, in his personal life and professional life – including the Justice League debacle – Whedon has had a bumpy couple of years, however it seems that all is forgiven and forgotten and Whedon is back talking to Marvel chief Kevin Feige.

Personally, I think Whedon’s impact on modern pop culture is unmistakable – from Buffy the Vampire Slayer to Firefly, to Serenity and then to Justice League.

So I would be ok with Whedon returning to the MCU. Would you? Let me know…

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
