Yesterday, Marvel Studios finally announced the cast of The Fantastic Four: Pedro Pascal (Reed Richards/Mister Fantastic), Vanessa Kirby (Sue Storm/Invisible Woman), Joseph Quinn (Johnny Storm/Human Torch), and Ebon Moss-Bachrach (Ben Grimm/The Thing). 

While these names have been on our radar for months, the fact the cast reveal was accompanied by a teaser image offering a first look at the team has sent excitement through the roof. We now know the story will be set during the 1960s, for example, and that lends the project a unique aesthetic. 

Artist Phil Noto has today shared his take on The Fantastic Four; it's unclear whether this is an officially commissioned piece of artwork or something he put together for fans, but either way, it's...fantastic. 

Cameras on the reboot aren't expected to begin rolling until the summer, so it could be a while before we get any official photos of the team. With any luck, more casting announcements - including who will play the movie's villain - are imminent. 

The Fantastic Four's cast has also broken their silence on the news in a series of Instagram posts sharing that same teaser image. 

"From our family to yours 💙💙💙💙 #TheFantasticFour, in theaters July 25, 2025," Pascal said, adding the "#AllYouNeedIsLove" hashtag. Kirby was next and revealed her excitement to bring Sue Storm back to the big screen. "Happy Valentine’s Day everybody. From our family to yours," the actress posted. "Very honoured to take on Sue Storm, Marvel’s OG lady since 1961. I hope to do her justice."

Moss-Bachrach had a little less to say and captioned his post with, "From our family to yours: HAPPY VALENTINE’S!!! #thefantasticfour." As for Quinn, he went with a simple, "Fantastic."

Marvel Studios concept artist Wes Burt has also commented on being enlisted to illustrate our first look at the MCU's First Family. You can read his comments below.

Other than that, I love EVERYTHING about it.

@Fogs - Because he looks good with a mustache and of all the things that don't matter Reed Richard having a mustache might be at the very top.

@Fogs - could be that he might have a mustache in the film. Production is well underway so they should have their looks down. But honestly, I don't mind. It's just facial hair.

@Fogs - it adds sexiness to the character

@Usernametaken - It completely breaks the character.

In 60+ years, Reed Richards has never been known as a man with a mustache. This is just lazy. It doesn’t look like Reed Richard’s, it looks like Pedro Pascal wearing a Halloween Costume.

Will it ruin the movie? No. But it’s certainly the wrong decision and Pedro shaving his mustache would objectively be better for the role.

@Fogs - agreed. very unnecessary to have...unless he's going for that 60s/70s porn-stache

@mountainman - am with you. It can't ever be perfect, but they can always try to get as close as possible to the comics.

Example: Lana and Lois. I freakin' hated the fact that in MoS, BvS, and JL Adams had red-to-lightish brown hair. Lois has ALWAYS had jet black hair. Then, on Smallville, which is a show I never was crazy about, Lana had black hair instead of the red hair she's always had.

I mean, how the hell hard is it to dye your hair?! They hire people to do it for you! (especially couldn't understand how Rosenbaum had to had his head shaved pretty much every day but they couldn't dye Kristin's hair at least once a week)

What's so hard about doing simple things to make the actor as comic accurate as possible?!

@mountainman - sorry, they wouldn't let me post my whole response for some reason.

@Fogs - the guy probably got handed the job at the last possible minute and all of his photo references had the moustache.
Ryguy88
Ryguy88 - 2/15/2024, 7:46 AM
@Fogs - because he drops to a 4 without it
mountainman
mountainman - 2/15/2024, 7:46 AM
@lazlodaytona - Yup. It’s not like the look is the MOST important part. But it is important.

Gordon in The Batman was well done despite looking nothing like the character.

Ultron having a human looking mouth, but he seemed like the character.

Jackman doesn’t look exactly like comic Wolverine.

Performance and characterization are most important.

BUT….why not have the look be accurate? Especially when it’s something as simple as dyeing some hair or shaving a mustache.

@Usernametaken - yes, God forbid you actually try to make the character look like the character 🙄
Origame

@lazlodaytona - apparently the html error is caused by overusing question marks.
Fogs
Fogs - 2/15/2024, 8:01 AM
@Usernametaken - I'm not losing nights of sleep over it but as others mentioned... Why not to try and have him closer to his CB look? I mean, you have EVERYthing perfect but that detail... Which makes it stand out way more.

As @mountainman said... That's F3... and generic Pedro Pascal in a Halloween Costume.

@Origame - oh. ok. Thanks for letting me know

@mountainman - I think he looks like Reed Richards.

@Fogs - Because Pascal looks better with a mustache, and the mustache is not breaking the look of the character.

To me it's like Daniel Craig being James Bond with blond hair or Michael Keaton being Bruce Wayne with curly hair, people complained a lot at the time, but now nobody gives a crap about it.

Like most people you're just afraid of change, and even if what we're seeing in the poster is 99% true to comics, you and other have to focus on the one thing that is not...
mountainman
mountainman - 2/15/2024, 8:27 AM
@Fogs - The strangest thing is we’ve seen him clean shaven before. I get that he normally has some sort of facial hair in movies, but it’s not like he CANT shave it off.
Baf
Baf - 2/15/2024, 8:31 AM
@Fogs - They can take it out in post-production.

Fogs - 2/15/2024, 8:40 AM
@Usernametaken - afraid of change, lol. Not so dramatic, it's just an opinion about a movie.

@mountainman - exactly, I also thought of WW84 when commenting.

@Baf - well I hope they do better than in JL if that's the case, lol

@dragon316 - I’m not sure how much internet you consume, but a lot of people take issue with race swaps too.

@mountainman - "In 60+ years, Reed Richards has never been known as a man with a mustache. This is just lazy."

eeeeeeeh, just saying mustache and not facial hair I guess makes your statement true, but if you look at the valentines day art, he has facial hair, not just a mustache.

and if we're talking facial hair, 1996, Defalco's run, Reed has a full on beard. That's 28 years ago. not just a recent development.
Matador
Matador - 2/15/2024, 9:58 AM
@Fogs - Cause we all know why Pedro Pascal only grows a stache because he can't really grow a real man's beard.

mountainman
mountainman - 2/15/2024, 10:08 AM
@SATW42 - Sure man. This is still lazy and looks like Pedro Pascal cosplaying as Reed Richards. Miles Teller looked more like the character.

You're not wrong, though. I did take some much needed time off.

@Vigor -

...excuse you, what? When did I ever react to having a woman as a lead? I'm one of those who insist that Sue is the strongest of the F4, so I kindly but strongly encourage you to remember more clearly before you make any more shit up about me.

Aka, check yourself before you wreck yourself.

DrReedRichards - 2/15/2024, 7:49 AM
@lazlodaytona -

I've said it before, I'll say it again: their chemistry together is more important than each individual casting. But as it stands, I'm a fan of all four of them, with Ben's actor being the most exciting.
