Rumors: Galactus Will Be the Main Villain in ‘Fantastic Four’, With Doctor Doom Appearing Only at the End

Galactus & Doctor Doom

The buzz around ‘Fantastic Four‘ just got more exciting with the latest scoop from industry insider Jeff Sneider. He revealed that Galactus is set to take center stage as the formidable adversary. But here’s where it gets even more interesting, Doctor Doom, a fan-favorite villain, isn’t being left out. He’s slated to make a significant appearance as the plot unfolds, especially towards the film’s climax.

So, what’s the scoop on casting? Javier Bardem is the hot favorite to bring Galactus to life. Marvel’s trying to sync up with his busy schedule. As for the Fantastic Four themselves, we’ve got a fresh lineup. Pedro Pascal is stepping into Reed Richards’ stretchy shoes. Vanessa Kirby will be lighting up as Sue Storm. Joseph Quinn is set to blaze as Johnny Storm, and Ebon Moss-Bachrach will rock as Ben Grimm.

Matt Shakman’s in the director’s chair, working from a script by Josh Friedman, Jeff Kaplan, and Ian Springer. With filming kicking off by summer, it’s all systems go. Pascal’s got a busy schedule, with ‘The Last of Us’ Season 2 on his plate before he dives into his ‘Fantastic Four’ role. Kirby, Quinn, and Moss-Bachrach are bringing their A-game too, with some impressive creds behind them.

This movie’s a big deal because the Fantastic Four are Marvel royalty, created by the legendary Stan Lee and Jack Kirby. They’re space travelers turned superheroes, thanks to some cosmic rays. It’s their first time joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and fans can’t wait to see them in the MCU.

With Galactus stepping up as the main villain, we’re in for a cosmic showdown. And with Doctor Doom’s late appearance, it’s clear Marvel’s got some surprises up its sleeve. Get ready for an epic adventure with the ‘Fantastic Four’.
