Marvel Wants Javier Bardem As Fantastic Four’s Main Villain, Galactus

In addition to the rumors of Pedro Pascal and Javier Bardem playing Reed Richards and Galactus, respectively, The InSneider also states whom Marvel is looking at for the rest of the main cast. The studio wants Vanessa Kirby as Sue Storm, Joseph Quinn as Johnny Storm, and Ebon Moss-Bachrach as Ben Grimm. Without official confirmation from Marvel Studios, that line-up could easily change, but it’s an incredibly talented wishlist.

And even if the casting of Bardem as Galactus doesn’t pan out, it does offer a hint as to what the story for the new film could be. “Fantastic Four” will likely explore more of the cosmic side of the MCU, as has been the case with recent offerings, like “Eternals” and “The Marvels.” And when Galactus is around, his herald, the Silver Surfer, shouldn’t be far behind. The InSneider doesn’t offer any ruminations on who might play the Silver Surfer, only saying that Marvel may gender-flip the Silver Surfer, making the character female. 

The fact that Galactus casting is ramping up also suggests any showing from Doctor Doom would likely be minimal. There’s a chance Doctor Doom could be set up as the villain for the “Fantastic Four” sequel (or even an “Avengers” movie), but it seems like Galactus will be the central antagonistic focus. Pedro Pascal is one of the most popular actors on the internet right now, Vanessa Kirby is getting Oscar buzz for her role in “Napoleon,” and Javier Bardem already has an Academy Award. It’s clear Marvel wants the best of the best for this new cinematic version of the Fantastic Four, and hopefully, everything comes together.
