29 Aug - Matt Shakman is now leaving the Star Trek galaxy to supposedly insert himself into another universe.

The Marvel Cinematic Universe, that is.

The filmmaker was revealed to have departed from the upcoming Paramount Pictures project after it was reported that he will be helming the "Fantastic Four" movie for Marvel Studios.

"Matt Shakman is an incredibly talented filmmaker, and we regret the timing didn't align for him to direct our upcoming Star Trek film," Paramount Pictures said in a statement. "We are grateful for his many contributions, are excited about the creative vision of this next chapter and look forward to bringing it to audiences all around world."


Shakman is no stranger to the MCU, having directed the Disney+ series, "WandaVision", the same series that attracted the attention of the Star Trek team to do the movie back in summer 2021.

Paramount is set to find a new director for the project, which is scheduled for release in December 2023.
