According to reports, the ‘Fantastic Four’ cast is:
Adam Driver as Mr. Fantastic (Reed Richards): Reed Richards possesses the ability to stretch and contort his body into incredible lengths and shapes. His elasticity allows him to stretch his limbs, reshape his body, and even form complex structures.
Margot Robbie as Invisible Woman (Susan Storm): Susan Storm has the power of invisibility, allowing her to become completely transparent to both the naked eye and most forms of detection. She can also create powerful force fields, which can be used for defense or as offensive weapons.
Paul Mescal as Human Torch (Johnny Storm): Johnny Storm can engulf his entire body in flames and generate and control fire. He can fly at superhuman speeds and project fiery blasts and fireballs.
Daveed Diggs as The Thing (Ben Grimm): Ben Grimm possesses incredible superhuman strength and durability. He has a rocky, orange-colored exterior and enhanced physical abilities, making him virtually indestructible. The Thing is known for his formidable brawling skills.
The film is directed by Matt Shakman from a screenplay by Josh Friedman. According to Marvel President Kevin Feige, the Fantastic Four film will not have an origin story. He said (via THR), “A lot of people know this origin story. A lot of people know the basics. How do we take that and bring something that they’ve never seen before?” Feige added, “We’ve set a very high bar for ourselves by bringing that to the screen.“
Kevin Feige on the Importance of the Fantastic Four in the Marvel Cinematic Universe
According to Kevin Feige, the president of Marvel Studios, the Fantastic Four hold significant importance in the comic book world and has not yet been fully explored within the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU). In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Feige said, “The Fantastic Four is the foundation for everything that came after in the comics. There’s certainly been versions of it [on screen], but never inhabiting the storytelling of the MCU. And that’s something that is really exciting for us.“
In Marvel Comics, the Fantastic Four team consists of four members: Mr. Fantastic (Reed Richards), the Invisible Woman (Susan Storm), the Human Torch (Johnny Storm), and the Thing (Ben Grimm). They got superpowers after being exposed to cosmic rays during a space mission, which granted them extraordinary abilities. Mr. Fantastic gained the power to stretch his body to incredible lengths; the Invisible Woman can render herself and others invisible; the Human Torch can control and generate fire; and the Thing possesses superhuman strength and a durable rocky exterior.
Produced by Kevin Feige, Grant Curtis, and Nick Pepin. Fantastic Four hits theaters on May 2, 2025.
