This report comes to us from Giant Freakin Robot and it’s something that we’ve also been hearing.
We did report that Marvel Studios was talking to John Krasinski and Emily Blunt for the role of Reed Richards and Susan Storm in the Fantastic Four movie.
However, we’re now hearing that those talks have broken down, which is not good because they would have been perfect in the roles.
Now, GFR is reporting that Marvel wants a more diverse cast for the Fantastic Four movie, which would back up our information that they’re no longer looking at hiring Krasinski and Blunt.
Marvel wants a diverse cast for their Fantastic Four movie
Here’s what GRF wrote on the cast for the upcoming Fantastic Four movie:
According to our trusted inside source (…) Fantastic Four will feature a diverse cast when it comes to the core quartet of superheroes. Our source could not divulge what the backgrounds of the group members would be, so we can’t report any specific characters being non-White. But, it does look like Marvel will be giving the Fantastic Four a varied makeup.
