“Collaborating with Jon on the ‘Spider-Man’ films has been a true pleasure,” said Marvel Studios chief Kevin Feige in a statement. “We were looking forward to continuing our work with him to bring the Fantastic Four into the MCU but understand and are supportive of his reasons for stepping away. We are optimistic that we will have the opportunity to work together again at some point down the road.”

More to come.
