Recently, there were rumors that the casting for the Fantastic Four reboot had been finalized. However, it seems that these rumors may not be true. According to a Marvel insider, every role is still up in the air, which means that a Comic-Con reveal may not be happening. It’s important to note that there may be some spoilers ahead.
The initial casting report for the Fantastic Four came from a well-known but mysterious Twitter user named MyTimeToShineHello. This user has been accurate in the past with MCU scoops and provided us with the following actors for the lead roles:
- Reed Richards/Mr. Fantastic – Adam Driver
- Sue Storm/The Invisible Woman – Margot Robbie
- Johnny Storm/Human Torch – Paul Mescal
- Ben Grimm/The Thing – Daveed Diggs
Out of these names, Adam Driver’s name has been mentioned the most in recent months. Margot Robbie’s involvement in the project has also been rumored.
Considering the timing of this leak, it seemed like a Comic-Con announcement for the Fantastic Four cast was a real possibility. It makes sense to introduce these characters early, especially if there are plans to tease them in post-credit scenes.
However, something has changed since the last casting leak. Marvel has pushed back the release date for almost all of its Phase 5 and Phase 6 movies, including Fantastic Four. The movie is now set to release on May 2nd, 2025, instead of February 14th. This delay gives Marvel more time to negotiate the cast and it appears that this is currently happening.
Another reliable Marvel insider, Grace Randolph, has addressed Fantastic Four rumors in the past. She recently tweeted that all four roles are back in play and other actors are being considered.
One of these actors might be Vanessa Kirby, who is rumored to be in the running for the role of Sue Storm. Randolph suggested that Kirby may have been the director’s first choice all along, and that a deal for The Invisible Woman may have already been closed.
It’s important to note that the update from Randolph came on the same day that Disney announced the delays for the MCU. So, while it seems like things are starting to fall into place, it’s still uncertain and subject to change.
