Pedro Pascal’s Fantastic Four casting has been confirmed along with filming updates for the highly anticipated Marvel movie
SAG-AFTRA accidentally confirmed Pedro Pascal’s plans to play Reed Richards in Marvel Studios’ upcoming Fantastic Four movie.
Regarding Pedro Pascal’s upcoming Marvel tie-in Fantastic Four movie, the cat might be out of the bag! According to SAG-AFTRA, Pascal will play the patriarch of Marvel’s first family, Reed Richard, in the superhero scene, with production beginning soon. The publication comes from a career review organized and presented by SAG-AFTRA, says Pascal “Recently produced on Ridley Scott’s expectations Gladiator 2 new and will be will soon begin production on Marvel Studios’ Fantastic Four.” SAG-AFTRA changed the piece about Pascal’s involvement with Marvel Studios’ Fantastic Fourbut only after eagle-eyed fans spotted the post.
While we’re still waiting for official confirmation from Marvel, the SAG-AFTRA gaff lends credence to long-held rumors about Pascal responding as Mr. Fanstastic.
Rumors about who will star in Marvel’s latest attempt to reboot the Fantastic Four have circulated since the project was confirmed. Pascal was long rumored to be playing Reed, with Vanessa Kirby (Mission Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part One, The Crown, Pieces of a woman) widely reported to have played Susan Storm Richards. Meanwhile, cooler whiskey means Joesph Quinn (Stranger Things) plays Johnny Storm (Human Torch), with Ebon Moss-Bachrach (The bear, The Punisher, John Adams) plays Ben Grimm (The Thing). Another statement praises Javier Bardem (No Country for Old Men, A shield, Biutiful(The Queen’s Gambit, Furious, Last night in Soho) possibly playing a gender-swapped version of the Silver Surfer, aka Juno.
I hope Marvel plans to officially announce the team Fantastic Four sooner rather than later because some fans feel that the will – they won’t – they put dancing for this movie is way out of hand. Maybe after Marvel drops a trailer for Deadpool 3 during the Super Bowl, they can focus on naming details for Fantastic Four. Let’s go, Marvel!
