The next ‘Fantastic Four’ film, which will be a part of the MCU, has offered Vanessa Kirby the role of Sue Storm. According to sources, Margot Robbie reportedly declined the part, which resulted in Kirby, who had previously expressed her willingness to play the part. With regard to the potential possibility to play Sue Storm, Kirby said to ComicBook, “It would be an honour.” Pom Klementieff, who plays Mantis in Marvel’s ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ series, and Kirby’s ‘Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part One’ co-stars, voiced their delight about the prospect of working together once more. “We could collaborate!” added Klementieff to ComicBook.
It won’t be a surprise if Kirby is cast in the role of Sue Storm given her desire to play the character. After portraying The White Widow in the eighth “Mission: Impossible” movie, Princess Margaret in “The Crown,” Beth in “The Son,” Martha in “Pieces of a Woman,” Hattie in “Princess Margaret,” etc., the actress will join the movie if she accepts the part. Also following in the footsteps of Jessica Alba and Kate Mara, who portrayed Sue Storm in earlier “Fantastic Four” movies, is the actress. Lily James from “Pam & Tommy,” Jodie Comer from “Killing Eve,” and Amanda Seyfried from “The Dropout” were all previously mentioned as candidates for the part.
Marvel CEO Kevin Feige revealed the new “Fantastic Four” film in 2019. Finally, he admitted that the reboot won’t have an origin narrative. After first contemplating Jon Watts, who wanted to take a sabbatical from directing superhero movies after presiding over the three ‘Spider-Man’ movies in the MCU, Matt Shakman was chosen to oversee the picture. With “Cut Bank,” Shakman made his feature picture debut. He has also directed episodes of popular television series like “Game of Thrones,” “Succession,” “The Boys,” “Fargo,” “Mad Men,” etc.
The movie’s screenwriters were initially revealed to be Jeff Kaplan and Ian Springer. Josh Friedman, whose resume includes “Avatar: The Way of Water,” was hired in March 2023 to rework the script. Friedman co-wrote “War of the Worlds” with Steven Spielberg and “The Black Dahlia” with Brian De Palma. He also co-created the shows “Foundation” on Apple TV+ and “Snowpiercer” on TNT. The movie is anticipated to start filming in London in January 2024, with a May 2, 2025, release date.
