What Is the Plot of the Movie?

Fantastic Four 2025

In the 2000s, the Fantastic Four franchise gained massive popularity, kicking off with the 2005 film adaptation Fantastic Four and its sequel, Fantastic 4: Rise of the Silver Surfer. In 2015, Josh Trank rebooted the franchise with his Miles Teller led vehicle. However, seeing as this fresh take landed rather flat on its face, the franchise hit a stalemate. As a result, rumours of another revamp started to surface, and the project was then green lit with a scheduled 2023 release. Yet, once again this didn’t come to fruition, leaving fans disheartened.

On Valentine’s Day 2024, the 2025 Fantastic Four cast was revealed via a quirky cartoon poster posted to Marvel Entertainment’s official X page. However, no plot details were released. And as of yet, neither IMDB or the official Marvel website have released a synopsis. Despite this, the potential plot can be hypothesised based on studio head Kevin Feige‘s statements on how the movie will explore a story that hasn’t been told before, telling DeadlineFantastic Four is the foundation for everything that came after in the comics.” He also expressed his desires for Fantastic Four to jumpstart Phase 6 of the MCU, as the rights no longer belong to 20th Century Fox. He divulged: “We plan on that being a big pillar of the MCU going forward, just the way they’ve been in the comics for 50 or 60 years.
