Marvel’s Fantastic 4 Will Cast Established Actors + New Faces!
Hopefully this time Marvel will hire a director that is very familiar with Marvel’s Fantastic 4 and realize that you cannot play with the character origins or ethnic backgrounds.
Josh Trank’s version of Fantastic 4 was utter garbage, it changed the origins of the famed comic book and RUINED everything. Thankfully Disney helped to make sure that the film has vanished.
CelebNMovies247.com reports casting Fantastic 4 for the Marvel Cinematic Universe will use the same tried-and-tested formula now established by the long-running franchise.
Yes, Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige recently offered some insight into the studio’s approach to putting a name and face with the likes of Mr. Fantastic and The Invisible Women for their highly anticipated MCU debut, revealing that, much like the rest of the universe, they are looking for a blend of recognizable names and newcomers.
Kevin Feige cites the previous successes of the likes of Tom Hiddleston, Chris Hemsworth and Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings star Simu Liu as examples of Marvel plucking lesser-known names out of relative obscurity and launching them into the A-list.
I think the MCU is a beautiful combination of both (established actors and new faces). I think you look no further than Simu in Shang-Chi, like Chris Hemsworth, like Tom Hiddleston, like Tom Holland, an actor that hadn’t been seen by a tremendous amount of people before, or you have a Benedict stepping into Doctor Strange or Christian Bale stepping into Gorr in our Thor film. It is always a beautiful combination of both, and it really is about the search for the best actor for the job whether that actor is known to the world yet or not.
Feige refers to the already well-known names such as Benedict Cumberbatch and Christian Bale, the latter of whom will join the MCU as the villainous Gorr the God Butcher in upcoming sequel Thor: Love and Thunder, Feige seemingly suggests that Fantastic Four could combine both familiar and unfamiliar names in the line-up of the beloved superhero family.
