Banderas shared clips and photos from the set of a project, hinting at his involvement without explicitly stating which movie it is. However, his comment about building an exact copy of his face for the film has led Marvel Cinematic Universe fans to speculate that he may be working on Fantastic Four.
The rumors surrounding Banderas gained traction in April when reports suggested that he was being considered for the role of Galactus, the planet-devouring celestial and supervillain. These rumors further fueled speculation that Fantastic Four would feature both Galactus and his herald, the Silver Surfer. It’s important to note that none of these details have been officially confirmed by Marvel Studios.

Marvel Studios’ Fantastic Four has been the subject of numerous rumors in recent months, particularly regarding the casting of the main superhero team. Several prominent names have been suggested, including Adam Driver as Reed Richards (Mr. Fantastic) and Margot Robbie as Sue Storm (Invisible Woman). Other names in the rumor mill include Paul Mescal as Johnny Storm (Human Torch) and Daveed Diggs as Ben Grimm (The Thing). However, it is worth emphasizing that none of these casting choices have been officially confirmed.
In addition to the speculation surrounding the main cast, various A-list actors have been mentioned in rumors and reports, although not all of them are believed to be involved in the film. One recent report indicated that Emma Stone was offered the role of the Invisible Woman but declined due to salary negotiations with Marvel Studios.
While the Fantastic Four team has yet to make a full appearance in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, one of its members has already been introduced. Actor John Krasinski made a brief appearance as Reed Richards in the film Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, where he was depicted as a member of the Illuminati.

As fans eagerly await official announcements from Marvel Studios, the speculation surrounding the cast of Fantastic Four continues to generate excitement and anticipation. Until then, fans will have to rely on social media teasers and rumors to fuel their curiosity about one of Marvel’s most beloved superhero teams.
