MCU"s Fantastic Four Can Continue The Guardians Of The Galaxy"s Best Trick 2 Years After The Trilogy Finished

  • Marvel Studios' The Fantastic Four reboot has been speculated to be set in the 1960s.
  • James Gunn's Guardians of the Galaxy franchise included some of the MCU's best and most entertaining musical moments.
  • The Fantastic Four's potential 1960s setting means the project can include a nostalgic soundtrack, similarly to Guardians of the Galaxy.
If speculation about the historical setting of Marvel Studios' The Fantastic Four turns out to be true, the upcoming movie could continue a brilliant trend from the Guardians of the Galaxy franchise in the MCU. James Gunn's popular Guardians of the Galaxy franchise came to an end with the release of Vol. 3, tying together nine years of stories spanning four solo projects released in 2014, 2017, 2022 and 2023. While a new Guardians of the Galaxy team has been introduced to the MCU, it's unknown when they might reappear, but other upcoming projects can continue the franchise's best moments.
One of the best chances for Marvel Studios to continue the Guardians of the Galaxy franchise's best tricks would be in Phase 6's upcoming The Fantastic Four reboot. A surprise Valentine's Day poster finally confirmed the cast for The Fantastic Four, after years of speculation and avid rumors. Pedro Pascal, Vanessa Kirby, Ebon Moss-Bachrach and Joseph Quinn will assume the roles of The Fantastic Four's titular superheroes, bringing Marvel's First Family into the MCU. Marvel Studios has also teased a new theme for the Fantastic Four in the MCU, meaning Guardians of the Galaxy's most entertaining moments could be repeated.

The Guardians Of The Galaxy Franchise Included Some Of The MCU’s Best Music Moments Close One of the most memorable aspects of the Guardians of the Galaxy franchise is James Gunn's use of music to enhance the action, emotion and impact of a scene. Some of the MCU's best music moments were featured in the Guardians of the Galaxy franchise, including iconic scenes featuring Peter Quill's introduction to "Come and Get Your Love," Groot dancing to "Mr. Blue Sky", and the Guardians fighting the High Evolutionary's army to the tune of "No Sleep Till Brooklyn" in Vol. 3. While the use of music was certainly entertaining, it also served a greater purpose in the franchise.
Peter Quill was taken from Earth by Yondu and the Ravagers in 1988, with only his Walkman and Awesome Mix in his possession. This meant that Guardians of the Galaxy's soundtrack was composed primarily of music from the 1960s, '70s and '80s, with James Gunn using diegetic sound, meaning it was actually being listened to by the characters. This made the entire franchise feel more grounded, even when exploring the depths of space, and allowed Peter Quill and the other Guardians to display their personalities and emotional states through song, which is something that the MCU would benefit from continuing.
The Fantastic Four Is Expected To Be Set In The 1960s Although Marvel Studios hasn't yet confirmed the timeline placement for the MCU's upcoming The Fantastic Four movie, the first poster for the project, which celebrates Valentine's Day with the newly-revealed cast, hints at a historical setting. The team's costumes, home decor, and the fact that Ben Grimm's Thing is reading a copy of LIFE Magazine from December 1963, suggests that The Fantastic Four will be set in the 1960s. This has been long-rumored, but the new poster seems to provide confirmation, and Marvel Studios has leaned into the '60s themes with the poster and the design of a new title.
Marvel's Fantastic Four Not Yet RatedActionAdventure Sci-FiSuperhero Marvel's Fantastic Four is the first MCU movie to feature Marvel's First Family in the same live-action universe as the Avengers. It introduces the Marvel Cinematic Universe's version of Reed Richards, Sue Storm, Ben Grimm, and Johnny Storm, and precedes Phase 6's Avengers: The Kang Dynasty and Avengers: Secret Wars.
Director Matt Shakman Release Date July 25, 2025 Studio(s) Marvel Studios Cast Pedro Pascal , Vanessa Kirby , Ebon Moss-Bachrach , Joseph Quinn The Fantastic Four’s Setting Creates The Opportunity For A Brilliant 1960s Soundtrack The idea that Marvel Studios is really leaning into 1960s inspiration for The Fantastic Four suggests that the upcoming project may continue Guardians of the Galaxy's musical moments with an even more classic soundtrack. Even though James Gunn has since departed Marvel Studios to become the co-CEO of DC Studios, the MCU would benefit from using some of his techniques in future projects, especially after several recent projects received criticism from audiences and critics alike. Using a 1960s-based soundtrack in The Fantastic Four would capture some of James Gunn's magic, while firmly cementing the titular team within the MCU's history.
Related 10 MCU Characters The Fantastic Four Could Meet In The 1960s Marvel Studios' The Fantastic Four reboot has been speculated to be set during the 1960s, meaning the team could meet several iconic MCU characters. Guardians of the Galaxy already used some 1960s music, but The Fantastic Four will likely adopt a different style to the Guardians of the Galaxy franchise, so a wider array of music can be used. Expected to be Earth-based, The Fantastic Four's soundtrack may be more adaptive to the fast-changing world of the '60s, while Guardians of the Galaxy was initially limited to the tunes on Peter Quill's Awesome Mix. Perhaps the Beatles, Elvis Presley, Tina Turner and Bob Dylan will be featured in The Fantastic Four, continuing themes from Guardians of the Galaxy in lieu of further space-faring adventures.
Marvel Studios' The Fantastic Four is scheduled for release on July 25, 2025, as part of the MCU's Phase 6.
