When it comes to Marvel Comics, the primary foundation block that gave way to the Avengers, X-Men, Spider-Man and many more started with a family. A family of four. Two scientists. A jock. And a hot-headed little brother. The Fantastic Four. Now that Marvel Studios finally has the rights back and are allowed to integrate them into the MCU films, HipsterZOMBIEJoint thought now would be a great time to do a Role Call for the potential casting of the Fantastic Four.
John Krasinski as Reed Richards/Mr. Fantastic
Krasinki looks like Reed, talks like Reed, hell he is Reed Richards in real life. He has a knack for comedy thanks to shows like The Office, but he also knows how to be an action star thanks to his role in Jack Ryan.
Emily Blunt as Sue Storm/Invisible Woman
If Marvel Studios is able to lockdown Krasinski, expect him to put in a strong word for his wife, Emily Blunt. After all, the two worked very well together in A Quiet Place. Not to mention Blunt looks just like Sue Storm.
Joe Keery as Johnny Storm/Human Torch
Keery knows how to play cocky and egotistical. He excels at it as Steve Harrington on Netflix’s Stranger Things. He was born to play the hot head of FF, Johnny Storm.
Dwayne Johnson as Ben Grimm/The Thing
Okay, this just works on so many levels. You got the Rock playing a superhero made of rocks?? Johnson would have so much fun with this role and he’d become the next fan-favorite in the MCU!
Oscar Isaac as Victor Von Doom/Doctor Doom
Don’t hold X-Men Apocalypse against Isaac. He is not the sole reason why that movie stunk. Besides Isaac is an amazing actor that could bring some gravitas to the role of Victor Von Doom.
Marvel Studios might have had their film slate come to a screeching halt thanks to COVID-19, but rest assured, after they are done with their next couple of films, expect an announcement to be made for an all-new franchise, The Fantastic Four.
Well, that’s who HipsterZOMBIEJoint Experience would pick to be in an FF film but who would you pick? Agree or disagree with our picks? Let us know in the comments. Stay tuned to future Role Calls only on The HipsterZOMBIEJoint Experience!
