    It's the multiverse of madness.... so perhaps??? Instead of just one character, he does several, or all he has done with Raimi???

    As I said, with a shared cinematic universe, it's hard to tell. Sometimes characters show up before their own movies, like Black Panther and Spidey in Civil War or Wonder Woman in Batman v Superman.

    Personally, I'd prefer it if they introduced the FF in earlier movies before they got their solo film. So far, of the four existing FF movies, the least dire one is Rise of the Silver Surfer, the only one that isn't an origin story. The FF's origin story is the least interesting thing about them. They're more interesting as established heroes, the royal family of the Marvel Universe, the ultimate scientific think tank that everyone turns to with their problems. So it'd be cool if several earlier movies seeded the idea that they came to prominence during the five-year gap, basically filling the role in the MCU ecosystem that Tony Stark had vacated after Infinity War, and thereby set up a solo movie where they're already established, veteran heroes and scientific authorities. I do not want to see yet another stab at their origin.

    If you look at Spider-Man especially, the MCU avoided rehashing his origin for the third cinematic time so maybe they'll do the same again for FF? The precedent is definitely there and my bet is that this is the route they'll take.

    They also went that route with Mark Ruffalo becoming Bruce Banner/Hulk and just skipping the origin story for the MCU after two Hulk movies that were probably around the same success level as the Fantastic Four films.

    They're origin is easy enough to set up in a quick prologue or even a credits sequence like they did with The Hulk in Incredible Hulk.
    OK, I wasn't sure about the timeline with those characters, so I thought they might have already been working on the solo movies for their when they appeared in the earlier movies.

    I'm not saying this is the case, just that there's no reason it couldn't be. We don't know anything for certain, so it's best not to rule anything out.

    More like a large heaping dose of salt. I'll be very surprised if that report turns out to be true.

    If it is true, I'll be curious to see how much they adapt from the movie and animated series and how much they adapt from the original comic.

    I was unaware of this, but I read today that Olivia Wilde is supposedly attached to direct an upcoming Spider Woman movie for Sony Pictures and there's a fan petition going around wanting Daisy Ridley for the part.

    James Gunn was on social media again talking about Guardians 3. Will start filming the end of the year and he said Taika read Vol 3 script before writing Love and Thunder and they discussed in depth what was going on with the Guardians.

    He is also halfway through filming the Peacemaker series.

    So it looks like we're probably going to get a bigger gap between it and The Falcon and The Winter Soldier, than we got between TF&TWS and WandaVision. I'm a little disappoint, since I was hoping we'd go from from on to the next with only a week or two between each one.

    Probably thinking we'll just be even hungrier for more if there's a Spring Gap.

    And of course, they're right.

    Could also be just that they still plan to release Black Widow in May and want all the focus on that, instead of splitting people's attention between it and Loki.

    This sounds accurate.
