Marvel rumors hint Pedro Pascal has been cast in key Fantastic Four role

Rumor has it Marvel’s Fantastic Four movie has found its Reed Richards in none other than the internet’s favorite daddy: Pedro Pascal.

Can you feel the excitement in the air? There are some rumors about the casting for Fantastic Four, and it’s pretty fantastic as Pedro Pascal might be able to take on a key role in the film.

According to information from ComicBookMovie.comPedro Pascal – our beloved star from The Mandalorian and The Last of Us and Professional Internet Daddy – might become the new Mister Fantastic in the Fantastic Four reboot. This is like a dream come true for any fan of his work – and I am definitely here for this!

Think about it – after Jake Gyllenhaal decided to pass, the spotlight shifted to Pascal. And why not? He’s the perfect blend of talent and charm, just the right fit for Reed Richards. His captivating performance as the bad guy in Wonder Woman 1984 absolutely stole the show, as his roles usually do, and now he’s possibly joining the Marvel family. It could be a huge win for the franchise as a whole, especially for such an anticipated and much-desired movie.

We’ve seen some brilliant actors like John Krasinski, Miles Teller, and Ioan Gruffudd portray Mister Fantastic in the past, but Daddy Pascal? He’d bring a whole new flavor to the character.

And there’s more to be excited about!

The casting rumors are buzzing with names like Vanessa Kirby for The Invisible Woman, Antonio Banderas for Galactus, and Ebon Moss-Bachrach in a mystery role, possibly The Thing. And then there’s Joseph Quinn, who might light up the screen as the Human Torch. With director Matt Shakman collaborating with the creative minds behind Avatar: The Way of Water and WandaVision, we’re in for a script that promises to be nothing short of spectacular.

In other news, the countdown to May 2, 2025, has already been in my calendar.

The thought of Pedro Pascal bringing his charisma to Mister Fantastic is just electrifying and exciting. Here’s hoping this casting rumor turns into reality!

That would be…. Fantastic.
