After near-a year and a half of rumours and speculation, Marvel Studios has officially announced who it would be casting as its Fantastic Four team. Pedro Pascal (ever in high demand), Vanessa Kirby, Ebon Moss-Bachrach and Joseph Quinn will star as in the 2025 MCU film.

Pascal was previously reported to star as Reed Richards, aka Mr. Fantastic; Kirby will portray Sue Storm, aka the Invisible Woman, Joseph Quinn (of Stranger Things 4 fame) will play her brother Johnny Storm, aka the Human Torch, and Moss-Bachrach (The Punisher, The Bear) will star as Ben Grimm, aka the Thing.

Along with the casting news published on Valentines Day, Marvel has also updated the Matt Shakman-directed film’s release date to July 25th, 2025. Jeff Kaplan and Ian Springer wrote the script, with Avatar: The Way of Water scribe Josh Friedman having also worked on some version of the screenplay.

Given the nature of the MCU and its notorious penchant for secrecy, all we know so far of the film’s plot is that it will reintroduce the Fantastic Four to the big screen. There’s no insight yet on whether it’ll be an origin story, or whether we’ll dive right into the broader multiversal action.
