Marvel has announced the cast for the upcoming Fantastic Four movie, which includes Pedro Pascal and Vanessa Kirby.

Marvel revealed the actors chosen to star in the highly-anticipated remake of Fantastic Four: Pedro Pascal, Vanessa Kirby, Ebon Moss-Bachrach, and Joseph Quinn.

The movie, centered around a group of four superpowered individuals, is scheduled for release on July 25, 2025.

Pascal, who was recently nominated for an Emmy for his starring role in HBO’s The Last of Us, has been cast as Reed Richards, also known as Mr. Fantastic. Kirby, who most recently starred alongside Joaquin Phoenix in Napoleon, will play Sue Storm, also known as the Invisible Woman and Richards’ girlfriend. Moss-Bachrach, who won an Emmy for best supporting actor in a comedy series for The Bear last month, will portray Ben Grimm, also known as The Thing. Joseph Quinn, who gained recognition for his role as Eddie in Stranger Things, will portray Johnny Storm, also known as The Human Torch.

Marvel revealed the news on Instagram through a Valentine’s Day card.

In 2005 and 2007, Chris Evans and Jessica Alba starred in two films featuring these characters. Together, the films earned approximately $630 million globally. In 2015, a new version was released with Michael B Jordan and Miles Teller, but it was considered a failure both critically and financially.

There is limited information available about the movie, but it centers around a group of astronauts who journey to space and return with unique abilities.

There have been ongoing speculations about the actors for several months. In November, Kirby expressed her excitement and willingness to be a part of the movie.

Matt Shakman, primarily recognized for his television projects such as WandaVision, Succession, and The Great, will be at the helm of the film.

Pascal is also set to lead the second season of The Last of Us and recently appeared in the anthology movie Freaky Tales that premiered at Sundance. Kirby, who received an Oscar nomination for Pieces of a Woman, will next be seen in the as-yet-untitled next Mission: Impossible movie and the Ron Howard-directed survival thriller Eden alongside Ana de Armas and Sydney Sweeney.

Moss-Bachrach is set to appear in the upcoming third season of The Bear, scheduled for release this summer. He will also star in the Hulu horror film Dust alongside Sarah Paulson. This year, Quinn will be featured in both Gladiator 2 and A Quiet Place: Day One.

The announcement follows the debut of The Marvels in late 2023, which was the least successful film in Marvel’s cinematic universe.

Today marks the debut of Marvel and Sony’s Madame Web, which has received a 17% approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes and is projected to have a six-day opening weekend of $25 million.
