Kevin Feige announced the news during Marvel's massive Hall H panel at San Diego Comic-Con on Saturday. But in some particularly good news, the upcoming highly-anticipated Fantastic Four movie finally has a premiere date!

Kevin Feige announced that Fantastic Four is coming to theaters Nov. 8, 2024. Production on Fantastic Four begins "next year" and will introduce "Marvel's most iconic family," according to the official release.

The Fantastic Four has, of course, appeared on film before, first in the pair of movies directed by Tim Story in 2005 and 2007, starring Ioan Gruffudd as Mr. Fantastic/Reed Richards, Jessica Alba as Invisible Woman/Sue Storm, Chris Evans as Human Torch/Johnny Storm, Michael Chiklis as The Thing/Ben Grimm, and Julian McMahon as Dr. Doom. These days, they are best remembered for featuring Evans' first superhero role before he went on to play Captain America.

The new Fantastic Four movie was announced at Disney's investor day presentation in 2020, Jon Watts (Spider-Man: No Way Home) was attached to direct. But Watts exited the project shortly before the release of, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.
