Fan-Cast: Fantastic Four (Reboot)

It’s no secret that the recent attempt at a Fantastic Four reboot failed critically and financially. It’s led to many fans (including myself) wanting another new reboot so we can forget that attempt of a reboot, which would’ve been part of Fox’s Marvel cinematic universe. For this fan-cast, it’s pretty open to where ever F4 ends up – still with Fox or joining the Disney/MCU.

MR FANTASTIC (Reed Richards)

mr fantastic

Alexander S, Alex OL, Andrew L, Christian C, Colin M, Colin OD, Daniel G, David A, Eddie R, Harry L, Ian H, Matt B, Penn B, Richard M, Santiago C, Wes B.

For the F4, I don’t really know how they would plan to reboot it – with older or younger actors, something we’ve seen in both previous versions. I prefer the older route, but we’ll see how that goes…


invisible woman

Abbey L, Alice E, Analeigh T, Blake L, Diane K, Emily W, Gabriella W, Gaia W, Imogen P, Lily J, Lucy B, Olivia W, Tamsin E, Taylor C, Teresa P, Yvonne S.

As for each character, I don’t know if they’ll attempt a younger F4 like the previous reboot did or go a bit older like the ’05 movie did. So I mixed up the age range for Sue, aiming overall for someone who’s older than her brother, Johnny.

HUMAN TORCH (Johnny Storm)

human torch

Alex P, Ansel E, Brenton T, Cody C, Colin F, Daniel S, Dave F, Dustin M, Glen P, Hunter P, Jake A, Jeremy S, Liam H, Nick R, Nolan GF, Zac E.

Whoever plays Johnny should be a bit more cocky and the clear youngster of the F4. He should also be the “fun” one of the group, so as long as the actor can pull that off…I varied a bit in ages for Johnny as well, going older in case Sue is older and younger in case Sue is cast younger.

THE THING (Ben Grimm)

the thing

Adam B, Alan R, Alex OL, Ben F, Bruce W, Domhnall G, Garrett H, Geoff S, Jensen A, Jeremy S, Kellan L, Luke G, Michael E, Michael JW, Ryan G, Taye D.

Again, pulling from others’ ideas and my own as well as varying in ages…It’d be fun to see The Thing and Hulk together on the same screen (but who knows where F4 will end up).

DOCTOR DOOM (Victor von Doom)

doctor doom

Aidan T, Andrew L, Christoph W, Colin F, Craig P, Ian S, Joseph F, Joel E, Jon H, Martin W, Nikolaj CW, Richard A, Rufus S, Timothy O, Viggo M, Zachary Q.

Personally, I liked McMahon’s take on Doom but I don’t see him returning for the role. I tried, using others’ ideas as well, to put together actors that can potentially pull off the role.

Let me know what other characters you want to see added to the F4 fan-cast!
