The Fantastic Four is one of the most anticipated comic book movies in recent years. Fans have been dying for a good fantastic four movie since the first attempt came out in 2005. Both attempts of The Fantastic Four movie have been lackluster at best. Fans are hoping Kevin Feige and the team at Marvel Studios can make a great fantastic four movie. Details for the movie haven't come out yet and this gives fans an opportunity to tell Kevin Feige who they want as their favorite characters. Here's my dream casting for the Fantastic Four movie:
John Krasinski as Reed Richards
This is an obvious choice for Reed Richards but it is the right one. Krasinski can easily fit into this role. Krasinski has done action roles before most recently as a part of Tom Clancy's Jack Ryan series on Amazon. Richards is the centerpiece of the fantastic four and Marvel needs a star and a good actor for this role. I believe John Krasinski is the perfect choice for Reed Richards.
Samara Weaving as Sue Storm
This is a surprising choice to many of you. You were probably expecting I would pick Emily Blunt because she is married to John Krasinski in real life. But recent comments from Blunt has made me think she doesn't want the role. I think the best choice for Sue Storm is Samara Weaving. Samara Weaving is an actress that hasn't got the attention she deserves. She is a rising star in Hollywood and this role could make her a superstar. She has experience in actions most recently starring alongside Henry Golding in Snake Eyes. Sue Storm would be the perfect role for Samara Weaving.
Dacre Montgomery as Johnny Storm
This was the hardest casting out of the four characters. It was hard trying to find the right person for this role, but I think I found them. If you have watched Stranger Things, you know why Dacre Montgomery is the right choice for this role. Montgomery as Billy in Stranger Things was brash, arrogant, and cocky. All of these traits are what Johnny Storm is. He's also charming and a good guy which Billy wasn't but Dacre Montgomery definitely fits in this role. He has the good looks and the muscles to portray Johnny Storm.
Liev Schreiber as Ben Grimm
Okay, I lied this was the hardest casting choice out of the four characters. I think I found the right actor for this role and his name is Liev Schreiber. Schreiber is a well known actor who is good in any role he's in. Schreiber is known for the highly acclaimed series Ray Donovan. Schreiber has the physical appearance and personality for Ben Grimm. Schreiber has experience in Marvel movies playing the character of Sabertooth in The Wolverine films. These films Schreiber can handle this role in a big MCU film.
