Jeff Kaplan and Ian Springer announced as writers for MCU’s Fantastic Four reboot

Marvel Studios have announced the writers for the upcoming Fantastic Four reboot.

Jeff Kaplan and Ian Springer are on board to write the script for the highly-anticipated film with Matt Shakman set to direct.

Insiders told Deadline that the writing duo have actually been involved with the film for some time, even before Shakman was tapped as director, and have been outlining where this next series of films will fit into the Marvel Cinematic Universe alongside Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige. Kaplan, Springer and Shakman will now come together to align their visions for this project before Kaplan and Springer dive into writing the script. Feige is producing the pic.

At the recent D23 event early this month, Feige did confirm Shakman as director of the film but said that was all he had for the audience for now with no cast currently on board.

The Fantastic Four debuted in The Fantastic Four #1 (cover dated Nov. 1961), helping usher in a new level of realism in the medium. It was the first superhero team created by artist/co-plotter Jack Kirby and editor/co-plotter Stan Lee, who developed a collaborative approach to creating comics with this title.

Stepping away from the comic books The Fantastic Four have been adapted into other media, including four animated series and four live-action films.
