According to, Marvel has offered Steven Spielberg to direct the highly anticipated film Fantastic Four. Earlier, Spider-Man: No Way Home director Jon Watts was signed up for the role of directing the film. However, Jon Watts opted out of the job since he wished to take a break from superhero films after directing the MCU’s Spider-Man trilogy for half a decade. Now, rumor has it that Steven Spielberg has already agreed to take on the mantle of directing the film.

One of the reasons which might have fueled the rumor is because the director expressed his praise for MCU’s Guardians of the Galaxy films. However, it still seems unlikely that the director would say yes to directing a Marvel film. Mostly because the director has announced his desire to make superhero films in the past, such as DC’s Blackhawk, but the projects never saw the light of day.

Moreover, many fans believe that the director would not be able to work well with Kevin Feige since the latter is known for exercising significant control over Marvel films. Steven Spielberg is unlikely to be a fan of the lack of adequate creative liberty, and thus, it is unlikely that the director will agree to join the MCU as a director.

Only time will reveal the director’s choice. For now, it is safe to take the rumors of his agreement to join the MCU with a grain of salt.
