The Internets seem to think Marvel doesn't want to publish the Fantastic Four anymore, and Marvel doesn't seem to want to definitively say one way or another, but apparently Marvel is planning on publishing the FF in 2061, because in July they're publishing the Fantastic Four 100th Anniversary Special (maybe Fox's film rights expire by then?)
The one-shot is of course one of a series of weekly specials of Marvel fast-forwarding to mark 100 years of their iconic properties launched in 1961.
100th Anniversary Special – Fantastic Four #1 is by the creative team of Jen Van Meter & Joanna Estep and goes on sale July 2. Here's what Marvel has to say about the special, along with a first look at interior art and interlocking covers to all the specials by Alexander Lozano.
"Witness the first family of the future in a way you’ve never seen them before! What does the Fantastic Four look like in the year 2061? Reed Richards, Doctor Doom and Johnny Storm are all gone – presumed dead. The Fantastic Four has been discredited in the eyes of the public – no longer the champions they once were. Now, a new Fantastic Four will rise up – comprised of Doom’s granddaughter and the Richards-Banner twins. But when a key player in the first family’s past resurfaces – it will have earth-shattering effects on their future!
