One of the most exciting things about Disney's acquisition of 20th Century Fox is undoubtedly the possibility that the Fantastic Four could eventually get their own Marvel Cinematic Universe film. But who could possibly helm Marvel's First Family's MCU debut? The King's Man director Matthew Vaughn admits he would love to take a crack at the project.
Vaughn was recently in attendance at New York Comic-Con 2019 to promote his new movie (via Comicbook.com). Interestingly, the filmmaker admitted that Fantastic Four is the one Marvel film he would really love to work on.
"Yeah I've always loved the idea of doing Fantastic Four as it was originally written," Vaughn said. "I mean it's one of my favorite comics and I actually think that Fantastic Four, as a nice piece of IP, is in theory as big as Spider-Man. I think those, the values of Fantastic Four and Spider-Man, I think those are the reason, if you're a kid, you can imagine being a part of the Fantastic Four family and you can imagine being Peter Parker. So yeah, I think Fan-Four would be the one that would excite me the most."
For now, this could be simply wishful thinking for Vaughn and Fantastic Four fans. After all, Marvel has yet to make any announcements about the Fox properties that will be brought into the MCU. Nevertheless, Vaughn seems like an excellent choice to helm an MCU movie focusing on the First Family, We're keeping our fingers crossed on this one.
Vaughn's The King's Man is scheduled for release on February 14, 2020.
