In a world where the rumour mill never stops turning, Hollywood’s latest whisper has fans speculating about the potential casting of Mila Kunis in the upcoming Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) Fantastic Four film.

The chatter began when a tweet by Twitter user @EscarlateGarota surfaced (via MovieWeb), featuring a photo of Kunis and the Fantastic Four director, Matt Shakman, in a cosy meeting. Pop culture aficionados and comic book enthusiasts alike have found themselves pondering the question: Could Mila Kunis be cast as Sue Storm in Marvel’s Fantastic Four movie?

It’s not every day that one witnesses a high-profile actress like Mila Kunis meeting with a director for an equally high-profile film. Fans have been eagerly awaiting news about the MCU Fantastic Four film since it was announced during the 2019 San Diego Comic-Con. It’s no wonder, then, that this recent tweet has sent the rumour mill into overdrive.

The photo showcases Kunis and Shakman sharing a meal at a popular Los Angeles eatery. While it’s not uncommon for Hollywood’s A-listers to rub elbows with top directors, the timing of this rendezvous has fans speculating that Kunis could be in talks to play Sue Storm, aka the Invisible Woman. As one of the founding members of the Fantastic Four, Sue Storm is an integral character in the Marvel universe, and fans are itching to see who will bring her to life in the MCU.

Grace Randolph, a Hollywood insider, then took to Twitter to claim that Kunis is indeed one of the actors that Marvel Studios is looking at for the role, alongside the likes of Vanessa Kirby, Allison Williams and Jodie Comer. They are all very good choices for the role, and it’ll be interesting to see who ends up getting it.

Kunis, who is a pretty big name in Hollywood these days, previously lent her voice to the character Meg Griffin in the animated television show Family Guy. With her proven acting chops and her ability to portray strong female characters, such as her roles in Black Swan and Bad Moms, Kunis seems like a natural fit for the role of Sue Storm.

However, it is important to remember that this is all still mere speculation. The meeting between Kunis and the director could be entirely unrelated to the Fantastic Four film. Until official news breaks, fans will have to continue theorising and discussing the potential casting.

While the possibility of Mila Kunis joining the cast of the MCU Fantastic Four film has everyone talking, it’s worth considering who else might be in the running for the iconic roles of Reed Richards (aka Mr. Fantastic), Johnny Storm (aka the Human Torch), and Ben Grimm (aka the Thing).

Rumours have circulated for some time that John Krasinski and Emily Blunt are top contenders to play Reed Richards and Sue Storm, respectively. The real-life couple has proven their on-screen chemistry in films like A Quiet Place and A Quiet Place Part II, making them a popular choice among fans. Additionally, Krasinski’s name has been associated with the role of Mr. Fantastic for quite some time, and he even played the role in Doctor Strange In The Multiverse Of Madness.

However, the latest rumour is that Marvel Studios is looking at Adam Driver for the role of Reed Richards in the upcoming movie, which could be a very interesting choice. As mentioned above, there have also been rumours that British actress, Vanessa Kirby, is up for the role of Sue Storm, so Kunis has some competition.

For the role of Johnny Storm, some have suggested actors like Zac Efron or Taron Egerton, both of whom have demonstrated their ability to portray charismatic and daring characters in films such as The Greatest Showman and Kingsman: The Secret Service, respectively.

As for Ben Grimm, actors like David Harbour and John Cena have been mentioned as potential candidates. Harbour, who starred as the Red Guardian in Black Widow, and Cena, who played Peacemaker in The Suicide Squad, have both proven their ability to bring a mix of strength and heart to their roles, making them ideal choices for the character of Ben Grimm.

Ultimately, the casting decisions for the MCU Fantastic Four film remain a mystery. With a director attached and fans eagerly awaiting any news, it’s only a matter of time before Marvel makes an official announcement. Until then, we can continue to speculate, debate, and dream about our ideal cast for this highly anticipated adaptation. Will Mila Kunis don the iconic suit of Sue Storm, or will another actress step into the role? Only time will tell, but one thing is certain: the excitement surrounding the Fantastic Four film is only growing, and fans can’t wait to see Marvel’s first family brought to life on the big screen.
