Significance of the Filming Update for the MCU

The progress in casting and the impending commencement of filming mark a significant milestone for the MCU and The Fantastic Four.

The anticipation surrounding The Fantastic Four is immense, particularly within The Multiverse Saga, considering the substantial changes at Marvel Studios in recent years. Following the announcement of Ralph Ineson as Galactus in The Fantastic Four, it’s likely that additional roles are being finalized before filming commences. Amidst various challenges faced by other MCU projects during Phases 4 and 5, witnessing The Fantastic Four inching closer to fruition is indeed a positive development.

Originally slated to kick off Phase 6, The Fantastic Four was initially planned for Phase 4 but faced delays due to the global COVID-19 pandemic. Additionally, the transition from Jon Watts to Matt Shakman as director, coupled with script developments, contributed to the extended timeline before casting was finalized. Given the production hurdles experienced by other MCU projects, the progress of The Fantastic Four serves as a beacon of hope.

As The Fantastic Four shapes up, expectations are high for other Phase 6 projects, especially considering its significance as the culmination of The Multiverse Saga. With Marvel’s First Family poised to play pivotal roles in the MCU’s future, fans eagerly anticipate further announcements regarding additional cast members and characters. With filming set to commence in just two months, anticipation for major revelations is mounting.
