The president of Marvel Studios and the man with a plan, Kevin Fiege, reported to the disappointment of fans worldwide that the new and upcoming movie of the Fantastic Four franchise will not be an origin story. Although we have already seen the origins of the team of superhumans, it would have been more enjoyable if the movie would be an origin story.
After going through multiple iterations, different actors, numerous recasting, and weak filmography, the previous films were considered a failure by the critics and fans of the franchise. They were never able to pick up the film and get it alongside the likes of Doctor Strange or Avengers.

There is very little known about the plot of the film along with who the cast is! There were several rumors around the internet about John Krasinski portraying the role of Reed Richards again after the much-loved fan reaction in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.
The actor was reportedly going to act with her wife Emily Blunt as Sue Storm in the upcoming movie however, John Krasinski has kept quiet about his role or even if he is in it.

Taking to Twitter, fans of the franchise and Marvel Studios gave their opinions about their feelings about the film not being a reboot:
Kevin Feige says #FantasticFour will not be an origin story
"A lot of people know the basics. How do we take that and bring something that they’ve never seen before?"

Are we ever gonna get an actual origin story in the MCU? All "origin stories" have been with the hero already being the hero/had powers for some time

I feel like a lot of movie viewers don’t know the origin story, that’s fine with spider man but I’m not sure how it applies here and honestly they could do such a cool origin

Everybody saying it's a W, but meanwhile the general audience clearly have zero mindsete of what their origin was abt, plus it took Spider-Man to become Spider-Man until the 3rd installment, imagine them doing the same to marvels first family and doom gets his armor in the 3rd 🎥

I hope they don't do a "we've been here the whole time since the beginning" type thing like the Eternals
