Rumors suggest that X-Men star Jennifer Lawrence may have been cast in the role of Sue Storm aka Invisible Woman in the MCU’s Fantastic Four reboot.
It was revealed at Disney Investor Day that a Fantastic Four film is in development with Spider-Man: Homecoming director Jon Watts in the director’s chair.
There has since been a lot of speculation that Marvel Studios are laying the groundwork for the introduction of Marvel’s First Family in the Marvel Cinematic Universe through WandaVision on Disney+. As for who could play the titular team, rumors are already swirling in regards to that and now there is a report from Murphy’s Multiverse (H/T: CBR.com) that Jennifer Lawrence may be about to play Sue Storm/Invisible Woman.
Is Jennifer Lawrence playing Sue Storm in Fantastic Four?
It’s unknown whether or not Jennifer Lawrence will be playing the Invisible Woman in Fantastic Four in the MCU. Since this report broke, several insiders have claimed that the movie isn’t anywhere near the filming stage, so casting at this point is unlikely.
That said, the reason for this speculation is down to the fact that Marvel may be moving their productions to Australia. At present, Thor: Love and Thunder is shooting there while the upcoming 25th installment of the MCU, Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, wrapped filming there last year. As for the Fantastic Four: you guessed it. The production is set to begin very soon in Australia according to The Daily Mail who cite The Daily Telegraph – which reported that Lawrence is set to travel to Australia next month for a potential role in Fantastic Four.
Despite this, Lawrence’s apparent visit to Australia for a potential role on Fantastic Four doesn’t necessarily add up with the timeline as director Jon Watts is still busy filming Spider-Man 3. Moreover, if this does end up being true, there isn’t any confirmation as to who she’s actually playing.
Since then, the idea that the film is shooting next month has been debunked by a number of reporters and insiders on social media, so it definitely seems that like that part is wrong. As to whether or not Jennifer Lawrence has been cast in the role of Sue Storm, we’ll have to wait and see.
