According to Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige, not only does Marvel have no plans to incorporate the Fantstic Four into the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the conversation isn't even on the table.

"[We have] no plans with the Fantastic Four right now," Feige told AlloCiné in a Facebook video. "No discussions about it."

Feige's comments come after a fan-submmited question echoed persistent rumors that the FF could appear in the MCU in a deal similar to the one Marvel struck with Sony to allow Spider-Man: Homecoming to be part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

The pronouncement comes just days after a sequel to 20th Century Fox's ill-fated 2015 reboot attempt was originally scheduled to be released on June 9, 2017. Fox has never officially pulled plans for the sequel, but with that date having now come and gone - and Marvel's admission that they have no plans to pursue the property - the Fantastic Four's cinematic future looks uncertain at best.
