THE FANTASTIC FOUR Star Joseph Quinn Reveals When The Movie Finally Begins Shooting

The Fantastic Four star Joseph Quinn (Johnny Storm/Human Torch) has revealed when cameras will begin rolling on the MCU movie, hopefully meaning it meets its July release date as planned. Check it out!

It's become obvious in recent weeks that it will take a miracle for Blade to meet its November 7, 2025 release date. Disney has also confirmed that only three MCU movies will be released a year moving forward, meaning 2025 will likely belong to Captain America: Brave New World, Thunderbolts*, and The Fantastic Four

The latter hasn't even started shooting yet, leading to fears among fans that the reboot will slip from July and take Blade's place in November. 

Now, though, we have a positive update from Human Torch actor Joseph Quinn. "I can’t say anything, they will come for the people I care about," he began before adding, "Gladiator is finished, that’s done. It was an amazing experience and we are about to start 'Fantastic Four' in the end of July."

His A Quiet Place: Day One co-star Lupita Nyong'o (Black Panther) was also on hand and, when Quinn was asked whether she could join him in The Fantastic Four, he replied, "We would be lucky to have her."

To that, Nyong'o joked, "I gave him the 10 commandments of Marvel."

"I’ve met Ebon [Moss-Bachrach] very briefly, Vanessa I have lots of mutual friends with," Quinn recently said of his co-stars. He already knows Pedro Pascal because they've worked on Ridley Scott's Gladiator sequel together, but there's one cast member, in particular, he's thrilled to share the screen with: John Malkovich.

"He’s one of my all-timers," he acknowledged, before later revealing that he'd been for a costume fitting and started training for his superhero transformation into the Fantastic Four's heartthrob. 

"I’m eating stuff and lifting things. I’m working with someone great - if you’d cast someone as a personal trainer, you’d cast him, he’s a rhinoceros of a man," Quinn noted. "He’s very good at his job, he gets me to do the things I don’t want to do. You can’t think. You just have to go with it."

Check out the full interview with the MCU's Johnny Storm in the player below.

Marvel Studios has announced that 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) will lead The Fantastic Four cast. Julia Garner has also joined the reboot as Shalla-Bal/Silver Surfer.

Recent additions to the cast include Paul Walter Hauser, John Malkovich, and Natasha Lyonne in mystery roles, along with Ralph Ineson as the villainous Galactus.

Director Matt Shakman worked with both Avatar: The Way of Water co-writer Josh Friedman and WandaVision's Cam Squires on The Fantastic Four's screenplay, with Eric Pearson (Black Widow) recently coming on board for a final polish.

The movie is set to be released in theaters on July 25, 2025.

Can’t believe they’re shooting less than a month away. It’s finally happening. I can’t believe for the last 10 years the CBM industry has been thriving and booming (until lately), without the FF, X-Men, solo Superman movie, Green Lantern, or any other of the major Golden Age players.

@Se4M4NSt4ine - I know right? They haven't even touched the golden egg laying goose yet
TheVisionary25 - 6/25/2024, 6:48 AM
@Se4M4NSt4ine - well , We did have the X-Men within that time period but otherwise yeah.
Se4M4NSt4ine - 6/25/2024, 7:35 PM
@TheVisionary25 - I refuse to acknowledge anything Foxverse related between X-2 and Logan and Deadpool.

I do hope he’s not keeping the buzzcut though for Johnny because I don’t think that would fit the character (even if Evans had a similar haircut in the 2005 one)..

I think he did it for the next Alex Garland film that’s apparently shooting which makes me wonder if they’ll give him a wig or something for FF since I don’t know if he’ll be able to grow his hair back by end of July , atleast if it’s suppose to be similar to this artwork.

Anyway , I do like him for the role and think he’ll do great regardless!!.

"Only" 3 MCU movies in 2025? And how many TV shows? How is that an output reduction?
If I recall correctly, 2 movies a year was an Infininty Saga norm.

Fighting oversaturation my ass.
DrReedRichards - 6/25/2024, 7:11 AM
@NickScryer -

2017 '18 & '19 all had three movies each, all part of Phase III. The only year of that Phase with 2 movies was '16.
NickScryer - 6/25/2024, 7:32 AM
@DrReedRichards - Infinity Saga began in 2008. So, only until it's culmination did it reach 3 movies a year. So yeah, 2 movies a year WAS the norm.
And now somehow 3 movies a year is supposed to be Disney focusing on quality, not quantity.
The only year they had 4 movies released was 2021.
DrReedRichards - 6/25/2024, 8:06 AM
@NickScryer -

The output had an upward trajectory from early on, even in the Infinity Saga

Phase I
2008 - 2 mov. [IM1, TIH]
2009 - 0 mov.
2010 - 1 mov. [IM2]
2011 - 2 mov. [T1, CA1]
2012 - 1 mov. [A1]
M/Y avg.: 1,2

Phase II
2013 - 2 mov. [IM3, T2]
2014 - 2 mov. [CA2, GotG1]
2015 - 2 mov. [A2, AM1]
M/Y avg.: 2,0

Phase III
2016 - 2 mov. [CA3, DS1]
2017 - 3 mov. [GotG2, SM1, T3]
2018 - 3 mov. [BP1, A3, AM2]
2019 - 3 mov. [CM1, A4, SM2]
M/Y avg.: 2,75

And that's just taking the Phases of the Infinity Saga into consideration. Now, did Disney f#ck up by bloating the franchise with content, especially on D+? Absolutely, no question about it. But let's not pretend that 3 movies per year is not a return to form.
NickScryer - 6/25/2024, 8:30 AM
@DrReedRichards - How is 3 movies a year a return to form when for most of it's existence the MCU averaged below that number? They released 3 movies in both 2022 and 2023. 3 and 2 tv shows in 2022 and 2023, respectively. And guess what, we're getting 3 movies and 2 tv shows in 2025. Nothing's changed.
DrReedRichards - 6/25/2024, 8:34 AM
@NickScryer -

We're also getting one movie this year, which you conveniently left out.

I just showed to you that 3 movies per year has already been the natural rollout for the franchise, especially given its already increasing trajectory since it inception. Naturally, the franchise would have kept its increased projects, but given how thin they were stretched they recognize that they need to go back to Phase III numbers.

How is this not a return to form?
NickScryer - 6/25/2024, 8:48 AM
@DrReedRichards - 3 movies a year wasn't the general rollout. In fact, if it wasn't for Spiderman and collaboration with Sony, MCU would have only 1 year with 3 movies released.

Please tell me, where is the distinction between 3 movies in 2022 and 2023 and 3 movies in 2025? Where is the reduced output? And the supposed focus on quality?
DrReedRichards - 6/25/2024, 8:59 AM
@NickScryer -

Pretty sure 2022 also had the Special Presentations of Guardian's Christmas special and Werewold By Night, which while not theatrically released still count as movies, so let's not pretend they only rolled out three that year.

As for 2023, that year was already running on empty from the creative overhaul after Alnozo's departure and hastily slapped together series. Or are we going to pretend that this year didn't have one good movie and one good show respectively?

Point is, you're clearly trying to present those 3 movies per year as inconsequential or insufficient, and that's fine. So long as we make it clear that you're coming from a place of vehement contrarianism, that's honestly fine by me. TLDR, you're here to undermine the reduced rollout, and I'm here to clarify that's the only reason you're here for.
NickScryer - 6/25/2024, 9:05 AM
@DrReedRichards - you what? I was simply pointing out the fact that saying "only 3 movies next year" doesn't make any sense when we were getting that same amount for the last few years. Just how deep into Disney's crack are people willing to go just to deny simple facts?
DrReedRichards - 6/25/2024, 9:08 AM
@NickScryer -

I just explained to you that we weren't, though, and you keel closing your ears to these numbers. If you want me to use your own words, just how deep into Warner's crack are you willing to go to deny simple facts? Or whatever other competitive studio's, idk.
NickScryer - 6/25/2024, 9:14 AM
@DrReedRichards - Sure, 3 does not equal 3. All the best in your future.
DrReedRichards - 6/25/2024, 9:18 AM
@NickScryer -

3 does not equal 4, which should be the natural next step under normal circumstances.

Halted acceleration does not equal halted speed.

Troll elsewhere.
BlackStar25 - 6/25/2024, 1:13 PM
@NickScryer - What are you crying about? We wont even see those effects until they release what they already had in production. Remember, the pandemic mess up their scheduled releases by alot. If I had to guess...we would probably see the effects in 2026 or 2027. Would to prefer they extend their project releases out even more?
NickScryer - 6/25/2024, 2:31 PM
@BlackStar25 - Dude, can you even read? The article says they will release ONLY 3 movies next year.

It implies it's less than we used to get every year, whereas it's been the same since 2017.
JonC - 6/25/2024, 6:26 PM
@NickScryer - They have to taper off the commitments gradually as they already have tons of money invested in the movies that are due soonest. if they cancel those contracts they could easily add 50% to the budget not the mention the new hassle of getting actors/directors/etc to line up with a whole new set of dates. this is by far the safest thing to do content wise and financially. if they couldn't line those new dates up afterward due to cancelling it could postpone a movie by multiple years as these actors, etc are usually booked out that long.
