FANTASTIC FOUR: The Rumor Mill Claims That Steven Spielberg Is Being Courted To Direct MCU Reboot

Here's a wild rumor to get you over the end of the hump day! It's being claimed that none other than the legendary Steven Spielberg is being courted to helm Marvel Studios' upcoming Fantastic Four reboot.

Yes, this does seem like a pretty far-fetched one, but bear with us!

There's a rumor doing the rounds online that none other than Steven Spielberg is being courted by Marvel Studios to helm the upcoming Fantastic Four reboot, which recently lost original director Jon Watts. There are even whispers that the legendary filmmaker may have already agreed to board the project.

Now, before you dismiss this as just another bit of fabricated internet bull*shit, it's worth noting that several reliable (or semi-reliable, anyway) scoopers have alluded to the story (nobody seems ready to report on it outright just yet), and we have heard that Kevin Feige has been speaking to Spielberg about the possibility of directing a future MCU project for a some time.

Of course, none of this means he has actually agreed to helm Fantastic Four or even that this report holds any water, but it is certainly worth keeping an eye on. After all, Marvel Studios managed to secure Sam Raimi on fairly short notice after Scott Derrickson parted ways with Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.

We still know very little about Feige's plans for Marvel's First Family, but John Krasinski did appear as Reed Richards in the Doctor Strange sequel. The character met his end at the hands of the Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen), but the A Quiet Place star/director could well reprise the role for the upcoming reboot.

We recently learned that Moon Knight producers Grant Curtis and Nick Pepin are also working on the reboot.

What do you guys make of this rumor? Do you think there's any chance Steven Spielberg would agree to direct a project for Marvel Studios? Drop us a comment down below.
