    Marvel’s ‘Fantastic Four’ Reboot Pulls A Trick From Phase Four’s Successful Project ‘WandaVision’

    Since the time Kevin Feige teased the debut of Marvel’s first family in 2019, the fans have been anticipating the project. After numerous speculations and rumors, Marvel Studios finally revealed the cast of theFantastic Four. Heading the team are Pedro Pascal as Reed Richards, Vanessa Kirby as Sue Strom, Joseph Quinn as Johnny Storm, and Ebon Moss-Bachrach as The Thing.

    This will be the third adaption of the ‘Fantastic Four’ project, as the previous two were part of the 20th Century Fox. Although the 2005 ‘Fantastic Four’ and its sequel received mixed reception, the 2015 version was poorly received by critics as well as the fans. However, there are high hopes for this adaptation because of its star cast and a new take on an already successful style of an MCU project.

    ‘Fantastic Four’ Has Taken Inspiration From ‘WandaVision’

    After the success of ‘Avengers: Endgame’, Marvel seemed to have hit a hiatus with the failure of the succeeding projects. However, among those, ‘WandaVision‘ managed to stay afloat, making it the most popular installment of Phase Four.

    The Marvel show explored the story of Elizabeth Olsen‘s Wanda Maximoff, trapped along with the town’s resident in a sitcom-inspired world to bring back her lost family. Each episode of the show explored a different era of television, ranging from the 1950s until the present day.

    The recent poster drop of ‘Fantastic Four‘ is a vintage theme that seems to be inspired by ‘WandaVision‘. This will be the first time that an MCU project has been marketed keeping in mind the era in which the plot is set.

    Previously several projects were set in the past timeline like the 1995 set of ‘Captain Marvel’, 1940s-set ‘Captain America: The First Avenger,’ and even ‘Eternals’, which explored a lot of Earth’s history, didn’t go along with the timeline setting in their marketing. However, Marvel Studios seems to finally be learning from its past mistakes.

    It is an obvious observation from the poster of ‘Fantastic Four’ that the story is set in the 60s era. The team’s costumes and home decor replicate the 1960s, and Ben Grimm is seen reading a copy of LIFE Magazine from December 1963, implying that ‘The Fantastic Four’ will be a period project.

    LikeWakanda Forever and ‘I Am Groot’, Marvel Studios have changed the titles to fit the retro vibe of the ‘Fantastic Four’. Also, the poster features the goofy robot sidekick Herbie, the comic book character who seemed to finally get its MCU debut.
