There are rumors circulating that Pedro Pascal, star of The Mandalorian and The Last of Us, may be cast as Reed Richards, aka Mr. Fantastic, in the MCU’s upcoming Fantastic Four movie. BossLogic, a well-known artist, has even created artwork imagining what Pascal would look like in the role, featuring the character’s iconic gray temples, beard, and blue suit.
Pascal is reportedly close to signing on for the Fantastic Four reboot, although his involvement in other projects, such as The Last of Us, The Mandalorian, and Gladiator 2, could potentially affect his schedule. Despite this, BossLogic has shared his vision of Pascal’s portrayal of Mr. Fantastic for fans to enjoy.
Pascal’s fame has skyrocketed due to his various roles in the Star Wars series, Game of Thrones, Kingsman: The Golden Circle, Wonder Woman 1984, and The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent, making him one of Hollywood’s most sought-after talents. His potential involvement in the Fantastic Four movie is the latest in a series of rumors, with actors like Adam Driver, Penn Badgley, and Glenn Howerton also rumored to be linked to the project in the past.
While we wait for confirmation on Pascal’s casting, other rumors suggest that Vanessa Kirby, star of Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part One and Napoleon, may be close to signing on as Susan Storm, aka The Invisible Woman. Other actresses, such as Killing Eve’s Emmy Award winner Jodie Comer and Margot Robbie from Barbie and The Suicide Squad, have been mentioned as potential contenders for the role.
Kirby has expressed her gratitude and excitement about possibly joining the MCU as Sue Storm in the Fantastic Four movie. She described it as “an honor” to play the iconic character. Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige has confirmed that the reboot will not be an origin story, focusing on delivering a fresh take on the familiar characters. Fantastic Four is set for release on May 2, 2025, as part of Phase Six of the MCU.
