    I thought it was interesting Wong was known as the sorcerer supreme in the last doctor strange film instead of Stephen. I think decisions like that show the importance of the supporting cast.

    this is why, controversial as it may sound, Susan and not Reed should be the leader of the Fantastic Four. She pretty much is already in terms of managing the team and because her powers are both offensive and defensive. Plus, you’re never going to get names like Emily blunt or Lily James unless you give her more to do other than “tee hee I can wait to be married”.

    that then frees Reed up to be the science guy as well as the multiverse guy

    If we're talking in terms of
    John Krasinski continuing as Reed 616 MCU, since Blunt seems to be a hard "no" ,
    I suggest Actor, Director, and producer Olivia Wilde, 38 to be his Sue.

    Another choice would be the one rumored on Reddit
    Bryce Dallas Howard.
    But again, this would be if the actor mentioned in the spoiler tags was cast as Reed, not if they decide to go for another actor in his early 30s.

    I love the Bryce Dallas suggestion because then we have two potential directors/actors

    Olivia is also a good suggestion

    now that we know Glenn Howerton is most likely not Reed, does that exclude the possibility of Kristen Bell from being Sue?

    I will also add Samara Weaving to the Sue Storm pool.

    All this time whenever I read Lily James, I thought yall were talking about Jane Levy:

    so Jane Levy is my #1 choice for Sue as of today

    I saw the Bryce Dallas Howard rumor on Reddit yesterday, and the more I think about it the more I love that suggestion

    Would be a bonus to have her major film directing debut be F4

    I still think she could. She'd still be about the right age, though I'm kinda falling for Bryce as Sue.
    Still though, Kristen Bell would be awesome and would be a good contrast to a more stoic Reed.

    I saw this on the internet. Bryce Dallas Howard would be fine. But I think Blake Lively would just be perfect to John Krasinski. What dou you think? Screenshot_20220511-131513_Chrome.jpg

    Do we know the reliability of that leaker? I'm torn on this, because I love the idea of BDH as Sue, but still hate Krasinski as Reed. That's a chaotic lineup of actors they've supposedly spoken to. Would seemingly confirm that Franklin and Valeria are going to be included.

    Either way, my top choices for Sue remain:

    - Bryce Dallas Howard
    - Blake Lively
    - Amanda Seyfried

    If I had to guess , Giamatti, Cena, Walberg, Hill, Black , and even Hamm, have all met for Ben Grimm.

    Pankow, are Till are up for storm Johnny Storm.

    Banks and Lively may be up for Ben's Love interest as opposed to Sue.

    That's just my guess since it's possible Hamm is up for a villain role, since , he can pull that off as well.

    Again, I'm speculating.

    She has to want to do it, though.
    She turned down Black Widow.

    The Bryce Dallas Howard rumors are interesting. If you bought into Krasinski as Reed, you probably assumed Emily Blunt as Sue. But she has said she didn't want to be tied down to a film franchise like that, so apparently it ain't necessarily so. Krasinski as Reed, and Howard as Sue? Could do worse.

    The only member I haven't heard any rumors about is who would play Johnny Storm.

    Stranger Things' Dacre Montgomery has been rumoured for a while, who personally i think looks like he could be Blunt's actual real life brother

    I heard she tried to get out of Gulliver, but couldn't. I think she'll end up as Sue. I know the studio might consider it a bit risky to cast husband and wife, but they seem pretty solid. BTW, @6'3" or so, John is the runt of the family. Evidently everyone in his family is HUGE.

    I'd imagine some of the younger names on that list would probably be more for flashbacks as kid versions of the main cast

    seems to soon for Franklin and Valeria (or at least for them to be in that age rang)
    despite them being briefly mentioned in MoM, that was an alternate timeline, that Reed seems to come from an already long time establish team...

    on a side note with names on that seemly chaotic lineup of actors like, Giamatti, Jack Black, Jonah Hill I'm thinking Mole Man might be possibly in play for a villain (not to typecast/stereotype those guys, but they do kinda fit the bill)

    again assuming anything of that rumor is tru
