According to a recent report by Small Screen, Marvel has finalized most of the cast for Fantastic Four. Regardless of previous rumors, the roles of John Krasinski and Emily Blunt are still not confirmed. When Marvel Studios started speaking of the Fantastic Four reboot, Krasinski and Blunt were a fan-cast choice. But the rumors took to the internet. And Krasinski and Blunt soon became the perfect contenders for the roles of Mr. Fantastic and the Invisible Woman.

Being husband and wife, Krasinski and Blunt share striking similarities with Reed and Susan Richards. Watching their real life chemistry flesh into the MCU would have been a huge thrill. However, Blunt turned down Marvel Studios’ offers to appear in the Fantastic Four reboot. On the flip side, Krasinski has openly expressed his eagerness for the role. With that said, there is no official news regarding his closings with Marvel Studios. Recently, Small Screen has revealed that Marvel Studios has changed course.

According to Edward Lauder’s sources, the actors may not have any role to play in the upcoming project. Lauder stated:

Marvel has cast its net far and wide for this movie. They’ve been focusing on who would be best for the part as opposed to getting big names attached to the project.

It is likely that The Fantastic Four film will surprise fans by bringing in an unimaginable cast of characters. Lauder also added that Marvel Studios has chosen new actors for Ms. Marvel (Iman Vellani) and Echo (Alaqua Cox). And The Fantastic Four may just lead in the same direction. However, the full disclosure will be made sometime in early 2022.

Connections With Spider-Man: No Way Home

Spider-Man: No Way Home director Jon Watts will man the The Fantastic Four as the main showrunner. The fact that Marvel Studios chose to decide the casting so suddenly might have something to do with the film. It is possible that Watts already dropped Easter Eggs for the characters in Spider-Man: No Way Home. Here, we must also note that Spider-Man: No Way Home‘s ending or post-credit scene raises an important question about the suspenseful character who bought Avengers Tower.

Could this mysterious figure be Reed Richards? And did he alter the Avengers Tower into the Baxter Building? Watts could clearly take his own story forward.

The Anticipation For The Fantastic Four


Fantastic Four MCU reboot

Ever since the internet heard the faint mentions of a Fantastic Four reboot from Marvel Studios, they have been impatient to see it on the big screens. Fox’s first two Fantastic Four movies reflected badly on the franchise because of how poorly they were delivered. But fans are eagerly looking forward to a justifiable portrayal of Doctor Doom and Galactus.

According to many sources, we have been assured that Marvel Studios plans on offering a satisfying iteration of The Fantastic Four comic book. Not only that, the iconic appearance of Stan Lee and Jack Kirby will be properly acknowledged. After all, they were the ones that co-created the team. News also suggests that the MCU reboot will take inspiration from writer/artist John Byrne’s take on the team of heroes.
