With the recent rebirth of the Fantastic Four in Marvel comics, many have speculated that this is the first hint of the Marvel family joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Of course, Disney needs to officially acquire Fox, but the Russo brothers have been very vocal about their support. Having one of the biggest films of all time, Avengers: Infinity War, probably doesn’t hurt his credibility either. On the podcast Happy Sad Confused with host Josh Horowitz, Anthony Russo spoke about what he thinks of the buyout and what it could mean for characters like Wolverine and the Fantastic Four.

“I think there’s always new stories to tell. Maybe it’s ten years before the next Wolverine story, who knows, someone’s gonna come attack me now for saying that. There’s always a path forward if there’s a story worth telling. And I think another thing we appreciate about Marvel is they’re very good at making sure there’s a story to tell before committing to it. And frankly, there’s a lot of IP that can be mined. There’s thousands of Marvel characters, and maybe there’s a new direction to go in.” He went on to specifically talk about the Fantastic Four saying “They’re characters who were important to me. Ben Grimm was one of my favorites. And I think there’s a version of that film and that world that still needs to be told.”

Would you like to see Anthony Russo introduce either Wolverine or the Fantastic Four into the MCU? Spoiler Alert for Avengers: Infinity War – It’s not like the remaining Avengers couldn’t use the support after losing half the team in Avengers: Infinity War.
