Matthew Vaughn thinks Marvel should incorporate 'Fantastic Four' into its Cinematic Universe as soon as possible.
The 48-year-old filmmaker – who previously produced 2015's 'Fantastic Four' – has insisted that following Disney's purchase of 21st Century Fox, Marvel should quickly bring the franchise into the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
He reflected: "As the man that produced the last terrible 'Fantastic Four' – and I will say that because I said it from day one, but no one listened to me – I think 'Fan Four' is, for me, it's the live action version of 'The Incredibles'.
"It's probably the most, I think, commercially viable Marvel Comic. Kevin Feige will get ahold of that and probably make a masterpiece."
By contrast, Matthew – who is married to model Claudia Schiffer – believes Marvel should adopt a more cautious approach to another of its new assets, 'X-Men'.
The director – who also helmed 2011's 'X-Men: First Class' – told Cinema Blend: "I imagine that might get put on ice for a little bit. I think it needs a little bit of breathing room.
"They made a hell of a lot since 'First Class', if you think about it. 'Fan Four' would be the thing I'd like to see them do next. Disney and 'Fan Four' and Marvel is a really potent combination."
