Just a few months ago, the MCU’s “Fantastic Four” emerged as the most anticipated upcoming movie, with the revelation of its release date and cast. Pedro Pascal is set to portray Reed Richards, alongside Vanessa Kirby as Sue Storm. Ebon Moss-Bachrach and Joseph Quinn will bring The Thing and the Human Torch to life, respectively. Julia Garner joins as the MCU’s Silver Surfer.

With filming slated to commence this summer, a shift in the release schedule has bumped “Thunderbolts*” to May 2, 2025, leaving a void in its previous July 2025 slot. Despite the core cast being finalized, details on the film’s antagonist remain shrouded in mystery.

Today’s landscape shifted dramatically with the announcement from The Hollywood Reporter confirming Ralph Ineson’s role as Galactus in the upcoming film.

Galactus had been the subject of intense speculation as a potential villain, with leaks and rumors suggesting a narrative thread tying him to Franklin Richards and the eventual destruction of the reality from which the Fantastic Four originate.

Despite Javier Bardem being the frontrunner for months, the coveted role of Galactus ultimately landed in the hands of Ralph Ineson, renowned for his commanding voice and versatile acting prowess. Ineson has left an indelible mark across film, television, and theater, with notable portrayals such as Finchy in ‘The Office’ (UK), the politically incorrect office worker, Amycus Carrow in the ‘Harry Potter’ series, William in ‘The Witch,’ and Dagmer Cleftjaw in ‘Game of Thrones.’ His ability to embody diverse characters underscores his prominence in the entertainment industry.

Ineson’s rich, resonant voice has opened doors to a plethora of opportunities in narration and voice acting across documentaries, commercials, and video games, underscoring his versatility as a performer.
