Marvel announces its cast for new Fantastic Four movie

The studio made the huge announcement with a Valentine's-themed poster

Marvel has announced its cast for the new Fantastic Four movie with an incredible Valentine's-themed poster.

The new movie isn't set to be released until 2025, but fans have already dedicated a lot of time to wondering who the studio would choose for the new iteration of the Fantastic Four franchise.

The roles of Mr. Fantastic, The Invisible Woman, The Human Torch and The Thing were previously brought to life by the likes of Miles Teller, Kate Mara, Michael B. Jordan and Jamie Bell, but the new instalment will bring in all new faces.

Marvel shared the cast in a post on Instagram, writing: "Happy Valentine’s Day from Marvel’s First Family!"

Rather than dramatic cast photos, Marvel chose to announce the cast with an artistic poster that appears to be hand-drawn - albeit very well.

The poster revealed each cast member in their role, all hanging out together.

Following the success of The Last of Us, Pedro Pascal is set to join the feature film in the role of Reed Richard, aka Mr. Fantastic.

Pascal will be joined by the likes of Vanessa Kirby, Ebon Moss-Bachrach, and Joseph Quinn, who will portray Sue Storm/The Invisible Woman, Johnny Storm/The Human Torch and Ben Grimm/The Thing, respectively.

Fans have been left blown away by the casting, with many taking to X to share their thoughts.

"Joseph Quinn landing the role as Johnny Storm in the Fantastic Four is fantastic!," one excited fan wrote after seeing the poster.

Another simply commented: "This is an elite cast."

Recognise any of these famous faces?

The new title, which is confirmed to be called The Fantastic Four, is being directed by Matt Shakman, who Marvel fans will know from his work on the Disney+ series WandaVision.

A draft of the script has been written by Jeff Kaplan and Ian Springer, with Josh Friedman, of Avatar: The Way of Water also working on a version for the studio.

Pascal highlighted his excitement for the project as he shared the poster on Instagram, writing: "From our family to yours. #TheFantasticFour... #AllYouNeedIsLove."

Moss-Bachrach, who recently won his Emmy for his performance in the Disney+ drama series The Bear, shared the poster to his own Instagram page with a similar caption.

As well as announcing who would bring to life the superheroes, Marvel shared a new release date for the movie, declaring that it would arrive on 25 July, 2025.

It might seem like a long time away at the moment, but hopefully it won't be long before Marvel shares some more insights to the new title!
