Will soon begin production on Marvel Studios’ FANTASTIC FOUR

Regarding the SAG-AFTRA foundation, Pedro Pascal’s profile initially said:

Pascal recently wrapped production on Ridley Scott’s highly anticipated GLADIATOR 2 and will soon begin production on Marvel Studios’ FANTASTIC FOUR. Most recently, Pascal starred opposite Bella Ramsey in HBO’s THE LAST OF US, based off of the PlayStation and Naughty Dog game of the same name. The show, which premiered in January 2023, debuted to record-breaking numbers and critical acclaim. HBO announced THE LAST OF US season 2 renewal in late January. 

However, the page has since been edited to remove mention of Marvel and Fantastic Four:

Cast announcement could be at Comic-Con

It’s unknown why Marvel Studios hasn’t made an official announcement about the Fantastic Four cast but Pedro Pascal is a busy guy and he recently showed up at the Golden Globes with his arm in a sling.

The actor has HBO’s The Last Of Us Season 2 to film and there is also that Star Wars movie, The Mandalorian & Grogu, which Disney recently confirmed for a 2026 release that is said to film at the end of the year.

It’s also rumored that filming on Fantastic Four has been pushed back to later this Summer or the early Fall to accommodate Pascal, so maybe Marvel is saving the big FF cast announcement for this Summer at the San Diego Comic-Con.

Fantastic Four has a May 2, 2025 release date directed by Matt Shakman.
