Rumors: Javier Bardem Remains a First Choice for Galactus in ‘Fantastic Four’

Rumors suggest that Javier Bardem is currently a leading candidate for the role of Galactus

Just days ago, the release date and cast for the much-anticipated ‘Fantastic Four’ were unveiled, solidifying what fans have eagerly awaited. Pedro Pascal is set to step into the shoes of MCU’s new Reed Richards, alongside Vanessa Kirby, who will portray Sue Storm. Ebon Moss-Bachrach and Joseph Quinn round out the team as The Thing and the Human Torch, respectively. With filming slated to commence this summer, the movie’s release date shuffle has led to ‘Thunderbolts’ being bumped up to May 2, 2025, leaving fans speculating about the absence of a confirmed villain.

While rumors abound regarding appearances by Silver Surfer, Galactus, and Doctor Doom, nothing has been substantiated thus far. However, the chatter surrounding Javier Bardem’s potential portrayal of Galactus remains steadfast, as indicated by Jeff Sneider’s recent InSneider post.

Despite Bardem’s current commitments, Marvel Studios is reportedly navigating scheduling to accommodate his involvement. Bardem’s track record, boasting acclaimed performances in ‘No Country for Old Men’ and ‘Biutiful,’ among others, suggests an intriguing choice for the iconic role. As fans eagerly await further developments, Bardem’s potential addition to ‘Fantastic Four’ adds another layer of anticipation to the mix.
