We have been through countless sets of rumors about who exactly the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) is about to cast in the roles of the Fantastic Four. Now, with the strikes over, the cast announcement could be coming sooner than expected.
One of the names that has frequently come up as a potential contender for the role of Sue Storm is Vanessa Kirby. Known for her breakout performance in "The Crown" and her recent appearances alongside Tom Cruise in the "Mission Impossible" series, Kirby seems to be a strong candidate.
Kirby was recently asked about landing the role of Sue Storm on the red carpet, a question that implied she had already been cast. However, her response was rather evasive. She said, "I don't know, you'll have to ask them. I would be very honored to join."
This answer resembles how Rachel Brosnahan responded to questions about playing Lois Lane before eventually being cast. Kirby's ambiguity could be a sign that she is indeed in the running for the role, but nothing is confirmed yet.
Kirby would be a great choice for Sue Storm, as she possesses the desired look and has consistently delivered outstanding performances. Her recent portrayal in "MI: Dead Reckoning" showcased her talent, and she would bring star power without overshadowing the ensemble. Previous rumors linking Margot Robbie to the role were much larger in scale.
As for the other three roles in the Fantastic Four, the rumor mill has been at full throttle, and it is challenging to keep track. Jake Gyllenhaal's name has emerged for the role of Reed Richards, even though he previously played Mysterio in the MCU. The list of potential candidates for the remaining two roles continues to grow.
Due to the recent strikes, the release of the Fantastic Four movie may be pushed back, and the anticipated casting announcements may also face delays. Despite this uncertainty, Kirby's response suggests she may be the frontrunner for Sue Storm.
Fans eagerly awaiting the Marvel Studios' Fantastic Four film will need to stay tuned for official casting news, as nothing has been officially confirmed regarding Vanessa Kirby's involvement. However, with her impressive track record, Kirby would bring her own brand of talent and charisma to the role of Sue Storm, further enhancing the highly anticipated superhero team-up.
