The Marvel Cinematic Universe will restart The Fantastic Four and these are the actors who have sparked the most rumors.
As with Spider-Man, there are two different Fantastic Four sagas, however, Marvel Studios intends to incorporate them into its Cinematic Universe. To do this, he needs a stellar cast and that is why many names are being called up to play Mr. Fantastic / Reed Richards, the Invisible Woman / Sue Storm, the Human Torch / Johnny Storm and the Thing / Ben Grimm.
Supposedly, during the San Diego Comic-Con to be held this summer, the cast will already be confirmed and then they will start shooting, because The Fantastic Four is scheduled to be released on February 14, 2025 and therefore they have to start to prepare everything. Unfortunately, it looks like John Krasinski won’t be reprising the role of Mr. Fantastic, but they’re sure to get the casting right.
These are 8 actors that have been rumored for The Fantastic Four.

Rumors that this actor is being considered to play Ben Grimm started relatively early, although we haven’t heard much about it for a while. On the face of it, the How I Met Your Mother star may not seem like an obvious choice for The Thing, but it’s supposed to be a Thanos-like special effects role, so he’d only be providing the voice. of the.

After leaving everyone impressed with her work on Killing Eve, Jodie Comer proved that she is just as capable of making an impact in Hollywood films like Free Guy opposite Ryan Reynolds. It’s no surprise that she’s emerged as a top contender to play Sue Storm.

The Spanish actor has sounded very strong to lend his voice to the great villain of the film and one of the best Marvel cosmic characters. And that he could play Galactus, a huge being similar to the Celestials, those entities that we have already seen in The Eternals (2021). Without a doubt, he would be a spectacular signing for The Fantastic Four.
This actress knows perfectly what superhero cinema is, since she played Gwen Stacy in The Amazing Spider-Man saga (2012 – 2014). She has now been linked to Sue Storm, although the latest information we have is that Marvel has not wanted to pay her the money she was asking for and therefore they have broken off negotiations. Although, she may just be a ploy and they manage to talk her out of it.
When photos surfaced of Mila Kunis meeting with Fantastic Four director Matt Shakman, speculation immediately started that she could be Sue Storm. Although there was also a crazy rumor that she could be a female version of the Thing. Luckily, they were quick to deny it, but Marvel has already changed the sex of other characters in the comics. Such as Ghost from Ant-Man and the Wasp (2018) or Taskmaster from Black Widow (2021).
This actor knows exactly what it means to be in a big franchise, having played Kyo Ren in Star Wars. Now, he is associated with Reed Richards and many fans believe that he is perfect for the role. So it should not be ruled out that he leads The Fantastic Four.

After making himself known in the musical Hamilton, this actor has had ups and downs in his career, although he has a great relationship with Disney, since he has lent his voice to Sebastian in the remake of The Little Mermaid (2023). He is now being considered for The Thing and can bring enough charisma to be this major Marvel character.
Since she debuted as Harley Quinn in the movie Suicide Squad (2016), Margot Robbie’s career hasn’t stopped growing. So Marvel Studios has set her to be Sue Storm. What would be a real bombshell, since DC Comics movies are in full swing and also, we will see another version of her crazy character in Joker 2 (2024) played by Lady Gaga. Therefore, it is the perfect time to make the jump to the MCU.
