Marvel's first family has not been able to call Marvel Studios home since the brand was launched following Iron Man. In fact, it was well before that when the Fantastic Four began residing with 20th Century Fox.
Three original attempts at the characters later and fans are clamoring for the announcement of the Fantastic Four rights reverting back to Marvel, allowing the characters to appear in the Marvel Cinematic Universe alongside the likes of Iron Man, Captain America, and the rest of the Avengers.
Unlike Spider-Man who came over to the Marvel Studios from Sony beginning with Captain America: Civil War, the Fantastic Four won't be making the jump any time soon. When asked by Collider whether or not Marvel Studios and 20th Century Fox are in any sort of talks for a collaboration involving the characters, Feige firmly rules out the possibility.
"No, but I would say there's not like there's anything frozen that there needs to be a thaw," Feige said. "There's no weirdness. It is just very very cut and dry, and they're doing their thing, and they're doing it quite well in most regards, and we're doing our thing."
In fact, 20th Century Fox is still planning on making another Fantastic Four movie according to ComicBook.com's chat with executive producer Simon Kinberg around the time of Logan's release earlier this year.
"Hutch [Parker] and I were together on Fantastic Four, the most recent one," Kinberg said. "We love that cast. Obviously, the movie wasn't what we wanted it to be and it wasn't received the way we wanted it to be."
"Yes, we would love to make another Fantastic Four movie," Kinberg said. "We feel like there's a great Fantastic Four movie to be made and I think it would hue closer to the tone of the original, the source material, the comics, but we want to make that movie."
2015's Fantastic Four movie was panned by critics and fans alike. The film is currently sitting at #112 all-time with a 1.63 out of 5 average rating in the ComicBook.com Movie Database.
