The news has garnered mixed reactions from fans, with some eagerly anticipating the actor’s potential portrayal of the iconic superhero while others remain skeptical until an official announcement is made.
The Fantastic Four franchise has been in flux since its original adaptation in 2005, with the rights to the series eventually being acquired by Disney and Marvel Studios in 2019.
Since then, fans have been eagerly awaiting news on the new iteration of the team, with John Krasinski briefly rumored to be in the running for the role of Reed Richards.
Now, recent reports suggest that Adam Driver has given the green light to play the character in the upcoming reboot. While an official announcement has yet to be made, fans are already speculating about the potential casting of other members of the team, such as Sue Storm and The Thing.
The film is set to be directed by Matt Shakman, who recently helmed the wildly successful Disney+ series WandaVision.
While rumors have circulated that Mila Kunis was being considered for a role in the film, she recently clarified that she had only met with Shakman for lunch and declined to reveal any potential castings.
The Fantastic Four reboot is set to be released on February 14, 2025, and fans are eagerly anticipating any news or updates regarding the film.
With Adam Driver’s potential casting as Mr. Fantastic, the franchise seems to be in good hands and fans are hopeful for an exciting and thrilling new take on the beloved superhero team.
