…and it looks like it’s coming true.

As revealed earlier today on social media, Marvel confirmed quite a few things about its forthcoming Fantastic Four movie, the first with the FF as a part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

First, it’s title, which is The Fantastic Four. Not to be confused with Fantastic Four or Fantastic 4.

Second, the cast, which features…

  • Pedro Pascal (The Last of Us) as Reed Richards
  • Vanessa Kirby (Napoleon) as Sue Storm
  • Joseph Quinn (Stranger Things) as Johnny Storm
  • Ebon Moss-Bachrach (The Bear) as Ben Grimm / The Thing

And most cruically, based on the logo art and the promo image we’ve got here below…


Now, I don’t know if this means that part of the movie is in the 1960’s, the whole thing is, or if Marvel just really likes the retro aesthetic, but the style combined with those costumes feels very 1960’s.

Ever since The Incredibles came out, my mind’s eye has had a vision of a perfect Fantastic Four movie, set in the era the original comics were made. This may not live up to my brain’s hopes, but goddamnit, it’s a start.

The Fantastic Four hits theaters on July 25, 2025.
