Rumors Abound: ‘Fantastic Four’ Undergoes Rewriting With New Writers in Place

New Fantastic Four Movie Casting Leaks

Of all the upcoming projects in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), ‘Deadpool 3’ stands out as the sole film slated for a 2024 release. However, shifting our focus beyond this, one project generating significant anticipation for the next 2 or 3 years is the upcoming ‘Fantastic Four’ reboot. The primary unresolved aspect has been the casting, with no official confirmation thus far. The circulating talks suggest Pedro Pascal as Reed Richards, which was confirmed, and Vanessa Kirby as Sue Storm, which hasn’t been confirmed.

While there’s relative certainty about Reed Richards and Sue Storm, the actors for Johnny Storm and Ben Grimm remain undecided. Ebon Moss-Bachrach emerges as a strong contender for The Thing, yet he neither confirms nor denies his involvement in the movie. Additionally, the ‘Fantastic Four’ reboot aims to introduce Nova to the MCU, with rumors pointing to Ryan Gosling being offered the role.

In these tumultuous times, the latest buzz is more grounded, suggesting that ‘Fantastic Four’ is undergoing a rewrite with new writers already in place. They are diligently working to finalize elements of the story before the commencement of shooting.

The speculations stem from Daniel Richtman, a reliable source known for leaks and scoops, particularly with a solid track record concerning the MCU in general and a higher reliability score in relation to ‘Fantastic Four.’ Many fans are optimistic that the script rewrite signals significant changes, such as the possibility of Silver Surfer being portrayed as a woman. However, it’s more probable that the revisions involve final touches and subtle adjustments to enhance the overall story.
