After Jon Watts’ Exit From Fantastic Four, Is Spider-Man 4 Still Going To Happen?

The Marvel fandom was dealt a devastating blow as it was announced Spider-Man: No Way Home director Jon Watts would relinquish his role as the director for the MCU’s Fantastic Four reboot. The Marvel film was poised to be the filmmaker’s next project after the monumental success of the third Spider-Man movie. Fans were waiting to hear more details about Watts’ plans when the unexpected news broke. As soon as the announcement dropped, the heartbreak over Fantastic Four gave away to a new question… is Spider-Man 4 still going to happen?

Deadline was the first to report Watts’ departure from Marvel’s first family’s MCU introduction. The decision was amicable as Marvel Studios were “supportive” of the director’s decision to step away from the project while still being optimistic about working together in the future. The Homecoming director echoed the same sentiment while calling his experience making the three Spidey films “incredible and life-changing.” He mentioned supporting the second Fantastic Four reboot whenever it comes outs.
