There is no official yet, but several sources claim that Marvel Studios has found the interpreters of the Fantastic 4 for the film by Matt Shakman .

These would be the same actors already rumored in recent months, and who would form a high-level cast: Adam Driver for Reed Richards / Mr. Fantastic ; Margot Robbie as Susan Storm / Invisible Woman ; Paul Mescal as Johnny Storm / Human Torch ; and Daveed Diggs for Ben Grimm / the Thing .

Even My Time To Shine Hello , which usually doesn’t go wrong with scoops like this, confirmed the indiscretion:

We will probably have to wait for the San Diego Comic-Con (from 19 to 23 July) for the official announcement of Marvel Studios , perhaps complete with a cast presented on stage in Hall H. For now, these are just rumors, so let’s take them with the springs.

Be that as it may, the American release of the film is expected on February 14, 2025 . It seems that it will be a cosmic adventure, and that there will also be Galactus (perhaps played by Antonio Banderas , according to the rumors of recent months). We will keep you posted.


Fantastic Four was in the hands of Jon Watts , but the director of Spider-Man: Homecoming and its sequels has decided to give up to take a break from superhero films. Matt Shakman – the same as WandaVision – seemed the ideal replacement in the eyes of Kevin Feige , who already trusts him, and therefore will entrust him with the production without having to supervise it personally (as he did with Sam Raimi for Doctor Strange in the multiverse of madness ).

The screenplay

Marvel Studios has hired Jeff Kaplan and Ian Springer to write the script. Their filmography is not very rich, consisting only of Bert and Arnie’s Guide to Friendship and The Last of the Great Romantics . However, the two are considered one of the most popular writing teams of the moment: last year they sold several spec scripts (screenplays written on their own initiative, not commissioned by any studio), including the comedy Disaster Wedding . Another script of theirs to be made is K-Pop: Lost in America .

The new draft was entrusted to Josh Friedman , best known for War of the Worlds, Black Dahlia, Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles, Emerald City, Fondazone and the future Avatar 4 .

The cast

Still no official news – but only rumors – regarding the cast. John Krasinski played a variant of Reed Richards in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness , but we know that sometimes the variants look different than those of Earth-616. Furthermore, Krasinski ‘s casting seemed like a one-off solution from the beginning , to wink at the campaigns of fans (who had wanted him in the role of Richards for years ).
