We know that Marvel Studios is currently in pre-production for Fantastic Four, and the casting process is currently underway. We haven’t had any official updates on the cast yet, but the film may have just found their Invisible Woman.
According to The Hot Mic (via @DiscussingFilm), Vanessa Kirby (Mission: Impossible, The Crown) has been cast as Sue Storm a.k.a. Sue Richards a.k.a. The Invisible Woman of the Fantastic Four. So far, nothing official has been announced by Marvel Studios, so it’s best to take this news with a grain of salt.
Earlier in the week, it was reported that Adam Driver had turned down the part of Reed Richards/Mister Fantastic, and it’s also said that Joseph Quinn (Stranger Things) is being eyed for the part of Sue’s younger brother Johnny Storm a.k.a. The Human Torch. We haven’t gotten any updates on The Thing, but there was a rumor going around a while back that Jason Segel (Shrinking) was going to voice the part, and he was going to appear in She-Hulk—but I guess that didn’t happen.
If Marvel would announce the Fantastic Four, I do have a feeling that they would announce all the actors together—alongside their chief rival Doctor Doom, who Marvel apparently has huge plans for. We don’t know exactly how far into the process they are, but after a mixed bag of a year with Quantumania and Secret Invasion, fans are hoping that they get back to their groove soon.
For now, fans are waiting for The Marvels which is set to release in theaters on Nov. 10. You can also watch out for Kirby in Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part One now in theaters.
