The lengthy casting process for Marvel Studios’ forthcoming Fantastic Four film has allegedly begun.
The Marvel Phase 4 film appears to have taken a significant stride forward two and a half years after its first announcement, with two renowned leakers reporting that Marvel has begun casting for the legendary superhero group.
According to MyTimeToShineHello, who has a proven track record when it comes to prior Marvel Studios productions, the casting process for the Marvel film has officially begun.
Surprisingly, another leaker – Hendrio Pratama – backed up MyTimeToShineHello’s claim with an unsubstantiated breakdown of some upcoming Marvel flicks, including the Fantastic Four revival. Two well-known actors have already signed on to star in the superhero film, according to Pratama, while Marvel is seeking for two newcomers to join the cast.
We don’t know who provided Pratama with this supposed information, so take it with a grain of salt for the time being. However, considering MyTimeToShineHello’s history of breaking news on prior Marvel movies, we believe there has been some movement on the Fantastic Four casting front.
