I could see Paul Walter Hauser playing Mole Man? Voicing HERBIE? Maybe Doctor Doom.

Very different to other Marvel films

Fantastic Four gets released on July 25, 2025.

Joseph Quinn recently said the film will be different than Marvel films.

“I think that with the story of the Fantastic Four, it feels like we want to get this right,” Quinn said. “There are aspects of it that are very different to other Marvel films. That felt very compelling to me. And again, going back to who’s involved, Matt, of course, the director, I think is brilliant, and the cast, and I’ve read it and the script is brilliant. It’s really brilliant. I’m delighted to have this opportunity.”

He added “Superhero movies are movies about people. And if we’re invested in the people and the characters and the peril and the spectacle, then that’s why people go to the theaters to watch films. We’re not just in a penny; we’re in for a pound with this one. We’re going to go for it.”
