Marvel is currently in the process of casting the leads for the reboot of the Fantastic Four. Rumors about potential actors for Reed Richards, Sue Storm, Johnny Storm, and Ben Grimm have been circulating, but nothing has been officially confirmed yet. Some of the actors mentioned in relation to specific roles include Matt Smith, Adam Driver, John Krasinski, Emily Blunt, Margot Robbie, Vanessa Kirby, Joseph Quinn, and Daveed Diggs. These rumors come from various sources, including Marvel insiders on social media and trade publications. However, it’s difficult to determine the accuracy of these rumors until Marvel makes an official announcement.
The Fantastic Four is a group of superheroes who gained their powers after exposure to cosmic rays during a space mission. They are some of Marvel’s most popular heroes. While this will be their debut in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), they have previously been adapted for the big screen, with mixed to negative reviews. The 2025 Fantastic Four movie will be the MCU’s first official attempt at bringing the team to life since Marvel regained the rights to the characters.
Casting rumors have been surfacing more quickly as filming for the Fantastic Four reboot is expected to start soon. Social media has been a platform for these rumors, with some accounts claiming to be Marvel insiders providing information. However, it’s important to take unofficial casting news with a grain of salt until it is confirmed by Marvel Studios. Trade publications like Deadline, Variety, and The Hollywood Reporter also receive tips for exclusive news, sometimes directly from directors or producers.
For the role of Reed Richards, rumors have mentioned Matt Smith, Adam Driver, John Krasinski, Penn Badgley, and Ryan Gosling. However, nothing has been confirmed yet. Emily Blunt, Mila Kunis, Margot Robbie, Jodie Comer, and Vanessa Kirby are among the rumored names for the role of Sue Storm. For Johnny Storm, Jack Quaid, Joseph Quinn, Paul Mescal, Austin Butler, and Brandon Perea have been mentioned.
Overall, fans will have to wait for Marvel’s official announcement, which is expected to be made at San Diego Comic-Con. Until then, the casting rumors should be taken with caution, as nothing has been confirmed yet.
