Amid Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson’s MCU Debut Speculation, His Co-star From $760 Million Movie is Very Close to Winning ‘Invisible Woman’ Race For Fantastic Four Reboot

Dwayne Johnson, popularly known as “The Rock,” has established himself as a prominent figure in superhero movies. After making his debut as Black Adam in the DC Extended Universe (DCEU), there have been talks of his potential involvement in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU). The character he might portray in the MCU remains a mystery, sparking excitement and speculation among fans.

In a separate development, Dwayne Johnson’s co-star from “Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw,” Vanessa Kirby, is also rumored to join the superhero genre soon.

With Disney’s acquisition of 20th Century Fox, the reboot of “Fantastic Four” is now in the works, preparing for its introduction to the MCU. Various rumors about the casting for the film’s lead characters have been circulating on social media, generating anticipation among fans.

Although the official lineup is yet to be confirmed, fans have already begun online campaigns expressing their preferences for actors to portray the major characters in the “Fantastic Four” reboot. One of the most beloved female characters in Marvel comics is Sue Storm, also known as the Invisible Woman. Everyone is eager to learn who will be the fortunate actress to embody this iconic role. In the 2005 “Fantastic Four” film, Jessica Alba portrayed the Invisible Woman.

According to Grace Randolph, a well-known entertainment insider, Vanessa Kirby is considered one of the strongest contenders for the role of Sue Storm. Kirby, an award-winning and Emmy-nominated actress known for her performances in “The Crown” and “Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw,” is reportedly Marvel Studios’ top choice, although a final decision has not yet been made. Other actresses in contention for the role include Mila Kunis, Allison Williams, and Jodie Comer.

Reports about the casting of Sue Storm emerged following rumors that Adam Driver is being eyed to play Reed Richards, Sue Storm’s husband and the leader of the group. The casting search began in February, with Marvel Studios reportedly planning to cast Sue Storm first before finalizing the rest of the team, including Johnny Storm/Human Torch and Ben Grimm/The Thing. There have also been reports suggesting that the reboot may feature characters like Galactus and Silver Surfer.

With Adam Driver’s potential involvement and Vanessa Kirby leading the race for Sue Storm, it is only a matter of time before the remaining members of the Fantastic Four team are cast. As the central duo of the Fantastic Four, Reed Richards and Sue Storm require actors who can perfectly embody their characteristics while displaying on-screen chemistry.

Fans also speculate about the possibility of a reunion between Dwayne Johnson and Vanessa Kirby in the MCU. Many supporters are campaigning for The Rock to play the role of Ben Grimm, also known as The Thing. Given his physical stature and humorous personality, Johnson is seen as having great potential to portray the character. If Kirby wins the race for the Invisible Woman role, it would mark a reunion between the two Fast & Furious co-stars in their first Marvel project.

To avoid the pitfalls experienced by the 2015 “Fantastic Four” reboot, which performed poorly at the box office, Kevin Feige and the entire team are carefully overseeing the casting process for the new film. Whether they choose highly-acclaimed actors or newcomers, the priority is to deliver the best performances and do justice to the story.

Overall, the potential involvement of Dwayne Johnson and Vanessa Kirby in the “Fantastic Four” reboot and the broader MCU has generated considerable excitement among fans, who eagerly await further updates on the casting decisions and the future of the beloved superhero franchise.
