But the hype surrounding this new reboot is strong, and fans are hopeful that Marvel will finally do justice to the beloved characters.
As for the rumored cast, there have been several names floating around in fan circles. Adam Driver has been suggested as a possible choice to play the team’s leader, Reed Richards .
