Marvel Studios Hires Jeff Kaplan And Ian Springer To Write Fantastic Four Film
Last date is reporting that Marvel Studios has now found a writer for its new Fantastic Four film. Jeff Kaplan – not to be confused with Jeff Kaplan formerly of Blizzard – and Ian Springer are heading to the Baxter Building as they prepare to write the script for the highly anticipated film.
Deadline’s sources added that Kaplan and Springer had been involved with the film for some time before Matt Shakman signed on as director. Even more, the pair is helping outline where the next series of films will fit into the Marvel Cinematic Universe alongside Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige.
Deadline broke before news of Shakman signing on as director was confirmed at this year’s D23 Expo. Kaplan and Springer are still somewhat new to the industry with the team best known for the indie comedy Bart and Ernie’s Guide to Friendship from 2013.
The new Fantastic Four film will potentially begin Phase 6, premiering on November 8, 2024. It would be followed by two Avengers movies, Avengers: The Kang Dynasty on May 2 of that year and Avengers: Secret Wars six months later.
As for the cast of the movie, it is yet to be announced but several big stars are rumored to be attached, but nothing is confirmed yet and we are still far away from any sort of announcement about them.
