The introduction of the super-family, the Fantastic Four, is long-awaited in the MCU. Fans have been waiting for quite a long time for this to happen. And ever since Kevin Feige has made the announcement that the project to bring the Fantastic Four in the same universe, i.e., MCU, is underway, fans cannot help but speculate when and how this would happen. They have been looking for signs everywhere and are meaning to share them too.
To bring you up to speed, we were introduced to the four heroes in 1961 by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby in the comic book issue, Fantastic Four #1. While on a mission in space, they get exposed to massive amounts of cosmic radiation, causing irreversible changes in their body. This results in the powers they then receive. Reed Richards, the genius scientist, becomes too flexible; Sue Storm, Reed Richard’s wife, can be invisible and create force fields. Johnny Storm, Sue’s brother, can ignite himself and fly, and Ben Grimm becomes a rock monster. They go on adventures, fight monsters together and are soon-to-be in MCU. Here are four major hints that prove that Fantastic Four is already here in MCU.
1. WandaVision was full of subtle and quite clear hints. Remember when Monica Rambeau returns to SWORD, she asks Hayward about the astronaut training program? This could be them. Also, to this, Hayward responds by saying they lost half of them in the blip, and the rest “lost their nerve.” Also, when they are thinking of a vehicle that could withstand the radiation, Monica responds by saying there is an Aerospace Engineer who could do it. Now, this could be Reed Richards.
2. At the end of Spider-Man: Far From Home, there is a cleverly placed Easter egg. We can see it when Spider-Man comes in front of the old Avengers headquarters. In front of the building, we can see a sign that reads “We are so excited to show you what comes next,” and there are numbers as well, “1..2..3” and then a question mark. This may be an indication towards the initiation of phase 4 or the entry of Fantastic Four.
3. The superhero family has a deep connection with The Watcher. What If…? introduced us to the character, and since they has such a connection, its exploration may mean the arrival of the team.
4. In Spider-Man: Homecoming, we saw that the Avengers building was sold by Tony Stark. Although this was clear, we do not know to whom it was sold. And fans have been speculating about this too. After the “1..2..3” hint, this building could become the Baxter building, and maybe it was sold to Reed Richards.
Since John Watts, the director of the Spider-Man trilogy, is going to be directing the new Fantastic Four project, all these hints raise our hopes too high. Are you also as eager to watch them enter the MCU as we are? Tell us in the comments.
