There has been a lot of news coming regarding Marvel Fantastic Four movie. Last week, casting reports said Pedro Pascal would be playing the role of Reed Richards aka Mr. Fantastic. Venessa Kirby (Napoleon) would play Sue Storm, aka the Invisible Woman, alongside her Joseph Quinn (Stranger things) as Johnny Storm aka The Human Torch, and Ebon Moss-Bachrach (The bear) as Ben Grimm aka The Thing. This has also been said Javier Bardem AND Antonio Banderas they are ready for the role of Galactus.
This casting has yet to be officially confirmed, so at this point everything can change until Marvel Studios makes the official announcement. Marvel was looking for several different actors to take on these roles, but filling the role of Reed Richards is important.
Marvel was initially watching Jake Gyllenhaal AND Adam Driver for the role of Reed Richards, but it is said that they wanted too much money. Then there was the where report Kevin Feige believed the Fantastic FouHis cast promised to be “too white”, so he pushed for the casting of Pascal.
It’s reported that Sue Storm is the focal point of the story and according to a recent rumor, “That annoyed some of the actors they spoke to for Reed.” This was shared by insiders MTiTH as well as John Rocha and Jeff Sneider also spoke during the discussion Fantastic Four on The Hot Mic podcast.
As for the story, Rocha said that Marvel Studios has considered a love triangle, which suggests that Reed and Sue won’t be the strong couple we know from the source material when we first meet them. It’s unknown who might be involved, but in the comics Ben Grimm had a soft spot for Sue that was explored, so it’s something that could be explored in the film.
Sneider also shared that the film is expected to begin shooting as early as the first week of December. Fantastic Four is currently scheduled for release in theaters on May 2, 2025.
