Even though we’ve had three Fantastic Four movies, fans are desperate for Marvel’s First Family to enter the MCU as there’s a lot of hope that this is a case of fourth time’s the charm, and we’ll finally see the characters adapted in style. But to do that, Kevin Feige and company are going to have to find the right actors to bring them to life. Luckily, the fans have a few ideas to inspire them.

Spoilers to follow!

John Krasinski’s cameo in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, as the Reed Richards of Earth-838, has caused the excitement for the incoming Fantastic Four relaunch to sky-rocket, with everyone desperate to know whether Krasinski will stay on as Reed full-time and if so, who will be joining him in the Baxter Building. The FF is trending on Twitter today, then, as folks share their fancastings for who they want to see play Mr. Fantastic, Invisible Woman, Human Torch, and The Thing in the franchise.

Obviously, with Krasinski on board, his IRL wife, Emily Blunt, is a common choice for Sue Storm. There’s also a bunch of votes for Dwayne Johnson to play Ben Grimm going around, too. And Ross Lynch as Johnny Storm? Eh, it could work.

Seth Rogen as The Thing >>> The Rock as The Thing.

Dacre Montgomery has been a popular pick for Johnny for years, but could Liev Schreiber switch Sabretooth for Ben?

Is the world ready for a British Sue Storm?

Rudy Pankow’s got the right look for the Human Torch.

Likewise, Dianna Agron as sister Sue.

OK, sorry, Rogen, but Brendan Fraser as Ben Grimm is inspired.

Zac Efron will end up in the MCU someday if fans have anything to say about it.

Twitter got Krasinski as Reed, can it make Blunt as Invisible Woman happen, too?

With Jon Watts having just exited the production, the Fantastic Four movie is currently in flux, but we’re expecting news on who’ll replace him to come soon. And once a director is in place, the casting should soon follow. Could one of these people end up on the team?
