Paul Walter Hauser admits he had reservations before signing on to join the cast of Marvel’s FANTASTIC FOUR

Paolo Walter Hauser he is one of the most sought after actors in Hollywood right now. The Emmy and Golden Globe winner has given several touching and disarming performances in recent years, skyrocketing him to stardom.

He has many exciting projects in the works, including his entry into the Marvel Cinematic Universe, where he will play an undisclosed role in the upcoming film. THE Fantastic Four. But he didn’t accept the role without reservations.

In a recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Hauser explained that the failures of previous Fantastic Four film projects gave him pause, explaining:

“Don’t think this didn’t have an impact when I was deciding whether or not to take the job,” Hauser says of the property’s checkered Hollywood past. That movie hasn’t been completely nailed down yet.

But I really think that the combination of the script, the department heads who are working on the film and that classy cast of really exciting actors – some of them known for a long time, and some of them who are having a moment right now – [make me feel that] this film is special and was something I wanted to be a part of.

Despite what some critics and fans say about the state of Marvel movies these days, it’s truly a different world that Marvel has created in cinema.

The caliber and cohesion of stories are crafted more carefully in the MCU, and I believe the backlash of the last couple of years has given directors, producers, and studio heads a chance to recalibrate moving forward. I think we’re about to embark on something big again, or at least I certainly hope so.

Hauser is joined in the cast by Pedro Pasquale as Reed Richards (aka Mr. Fantastic); Vanessa Kirby as Sue Storm (aka the Invisible Woman); Joseph Quinn as Johnny Storm (aka the Human Torch); AND Ebon Moss-Bachrach as Ben Grimm (aka the Thing), as well as Giulia Garner who will play Shalla-Bal, a version of the Silver Surfer.

Matt Shakman (WandaVision) directs from a screenplay by Eric Pearson, Josh Friedman, Jeff KaplanAND Ian Springer. Peter Cameron (WandaVision) also wrote something about the project. Production will begin this summer, with the film due for release in theaters on July 25, 2025.
