Ever since Marvel Studios boss announced from the stage of San Diego Comic-Con’s Hall H in 2019 that the company was officially making plans to integrate former Fox properties the X-Men and the Fantastic Four into the Marvel Cinematic Universe, we’ve been waiting to learn who will play particularly the First Family of Marvel Comics.

Reed Richards/Mr. Fantastic, Sue Storm/The Invisible Woman, Johnny Storm/The Human Torch and Ben Grimm/The Thing are key players in the pages of Marvel, one of the best known and best-loved superhero teams.

They’ve been brought to screens before –– an unauthorized Roger Corman version floats around the internet after being traded on bootleg videos years ago, and then there were the Fox efforts, 2005’s ‘Fantastic Four’ and 2007 sequel ‘Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer’. They were followed by the dark, gritty and unsuccessful reboot in 2015.

And now the latest word –– though still unconfirmed by Marvel or anyone official –– comes from the Hot Mic Podcast and Above The Line, which are pointing to ‘Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning’s Vanessa Kirby and ‘Stranger ThingsJoseph Quinn playing Sue (who can generate forcefields and turn invisible) and Johnny (whose body turns into flame and flies) in Marvel Studio’s ‘Fantastic Four.’

This is far from the first time someone has reported on casting for the movie. Following Kevin Feige’s announcement, there have been a flurry of reports about potential performers.

Some have been pure fan casting ideas, others, such as Adam Driver or Matt Smith for Reed Richards (the stretchy leader of the team) sound more like the studio reaching out to actors who ultimately decide not to take the role.

The Hot Mic’s Jeff Sneider was fact-checked by one of the people he named-dropped, ‘The Boys’ actor Jack Quaid, who tweeted during the show that he was not playing Johnny, Sneider quick to correct himself and pointed instead to Quinn.
