Fantastic four (2005) and X-Men Origins: Wolverine (2009) were both added to the service from January 7, 2022.

As a recent article pointed out, both films from 20th Century Studios have garnered their fair share of controversy over the years:

Both of these films have vocal critics and people who absolutely love them. With both the Fantastic Four and the mutants on the horizon for MCU, it’s probably important for Marvel to get fans more familiar with the characters. It may not seem like people needed to be reminded of Marvel’s first family or the X-Men, but it’s been many years since both properties were treated to the big screen.

Now that the Marvel Multiverse has been blown wide open in Tom Hiddlestons Loki series and Tom Holland and Benedict Cumberbatchs Spider-Man: No Way Home (2021), rumors abound that Fantastic Four could make their Marvel Cinematic Universe debut in Doctor Strange in the multiverse of madness, to be released on May 6, 2022.

Casting for MCU’s Fantastic Four reboot also remains unconfirmed at present, but John Krasinski (The office, a quiet place) has expressed interest in playing Reed Richards / Mister Fantastic. But despite fans’ call for his real wife Emily Blunt (Mary Poppins returns, Jungle Cruise) to play Sue Storm / The Invisible Woman, the actress has shot the opportunity down.

There have also been reports that Hugh Jackman (The greatest showman) will join the cast Doctor Strange 2, debuts as Logan / Wolverine in the long-awaited film. Again, this is still unconfirmed at this time.
