Default Fantastic Four MCU Pitch

We are introduced to the Fantastic Four in 1968, narrated by the Watcher. They are already a premier super team and celebrities. That year they are confronted by the coming of Galactus in the classic comic fashion. Just like in the comic, Johnny finds the Ultimate Nullifier with the help of the Watcher. The plan to scare Galactus away with the Nullifier seems to work as first, but Galactus is not swayed. In a fit of rash anger, Johnny uses the Nullifier, but in the cinematic universe, the effects not only nullifies the wielder and those around him, it erases their entire timeline.

We are reintroduced to a new version of the Fantastic Four in modern times as Reed, Johnny, Ben, and Sue make their historic flight to study odd cosmic energy fluctuations, fearing another Chitauri invasion. As in the comics, their shielding fails and they become the Fantastic Four. Even as they come to terms with what happened to them, SHIELD tries to recruit them as replacements for the Avengers who are currently off fighting Thanos. Unfortunately, the Silver Surfer once again heralds the coming of Galactus who feels inexplicably draw to Earth to feed. As it was in the classic encounter, the Surfer turns on his master, the Watcher helps Johnny find the Nullifier, but this time Reed has time to analyze the device on the spot, modify it and then threaten Galactus with it. Reed was able to alter the effects of the Nullifier to only effect the target. This meant Reed could erase Galactus from the timeline ending his threat to the universe. Galactus was so startled by the sheer mental prowess of Reed Richards and by extent, the human race, that he leaves the planet, but not before trapping the Surfer on Earth and vowing to go back and consume Zenn-La, the Surfers home world.

When the Avengers return, they are greeted by a new (old) team based in New York, the Fantastic Four.

I like the idea, except for the time warp bit.

THAT is an interesting take. I'm not sure how it'd work, but I really like the unconventional nature.

I wanted to show two versions of the Fantastic Four, one closer to the image we are familiar with from the comics and one that is adapted to our more modern sensibilities. Plus it's a way to insert them directly into the MCU without an overly convoluted explanation of why SHIELD didn't know these people existed.

Fantastic! I liked the idea of using the ultimate Nullifier and erase the timeline

Not only does the split show the contrasts between the two versions of the FF, but it opens up the idea of Kang the Conquerer and Doom's time platform.

But then how will they fit into the Disney MCU especially alongside heroes like The Avengers, Guardians, etc.

My cast would look like this:

Reed Richards/Mr. Fantastic- Matt Damon (I like this and I can definitely see this)
Ben Grimm/The Thing- John Cena (I actually like this choice)
Sue Storm/Invisible Woman- Alice Eve
Johnny Storm/The Human Torch- Sam Claflin
Silver Surfer (voice)- Keanu Reeves
Galactus (voice)- Mark Strong

I wish Orson Wells was still alive. His voice of Unicron in the Transformers movie was perfect for Galactus.

But with your pitch then I wonder how the Fantastic Four would fit post Infinity War

Well erasing the timeline of the original allows you to introduce the new timeline during the infinity war even after it's over. We don't know for sure, but the assumption is the big fight takes place off world..
