Marvel Studios is reportedly considering Vanessa Kirby and Joseph Quinn for the roles of Sue Storm and Johnny Storm in the upcoming Fantastic Four movie. The film, which was originally set to be released in February 2025, has been delayed to a May 2025 release. Director Matt Shakman previously stated that filming would begin in early 2024, but with the ongoing strikes in the industry, it is uncertain when production will actually start.
Roles of Sue and Johnny
Despite the delays and strikes, it appears that Marvel is actively seeking the cast for Fantastic Four. According to Jeff Sneider of Above the Line, Kirby and Quinn are being eyed for the roles of Sue Storm and Johnny Storm, respectively. The report indicates that they are the frontrunners for the roles. However, neither Marvel, Kirby, nor Quinn have commented on the rumors at this time.
Fantastic Four is a highly anticipated film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The superhero team consists of Mister Fantastic, the Invisible Woman, the Human Torch, and the Thing. The previous attempts at bringing the Fantastic Four to the big screen have not been well-received, so fans are eager to see what Marvel Studios will do with the property.
Vanessa Kirby is known for her role as Princess Margaret in the Netflix series The Crown and has also appeared in films such as Mission: Impossible – Fallout. Joseph Quinn is best known for his role in the HBO series Catherine the Great. If cast, they would be joining the ranks of other Marvel superheroes in the MCU.
As of now, specific plot details for the Fantastic Four movie have not been revealed. It is also unclear how the characters of Sue Storm and Johnny Storm will be portrayed in this iteration of the superhero team. However, fans are excited to see how Marvel will bring their beloved characters to life on the big screen.
With the ongoing strikes in the industry and the delays in production, it may be some time before we receive more concrete information about the Fantastic Four movie. But as Marvel continues to develop its projects, fans can expect updates and announcements in the near future.
