EXCLUSIVE: John Malkovich (The New Look) is poised to enter the MCU, as Deadline understands that the actor has come aboard for a role in The Fantastic Four.

As with recent addition Paul Walter Hauser, Malkovich’s role is under wraps for now, along with the plot of the superhero flick. But as previously reported, those set for lead roles in the film include Pedro Pascal as Reed Richards (aka Mr. Fantastic), Vanessa Kirby as Sue Storm (aka the Invisible Woman), Joseph Quinn as Johnny Storm (aka the Human Torch) and Ebon Moss-Bachrach as Ben Grimm (aka the Thing). Most recently, Hauser signed on for an undisclosed role, prompting much speculation, with Julia Garner coming aboard to play Shalla-Bal, a version of Silver Surfer.

The Fantastic Four, meet your villain.

Ralph Ineson, the British actor whose three-decade career ranges from the Harry Potter movies to recent horror prequel The First Omen, has landed the plum part of Galactus, the antagonist in Marvel Studios’ The Fantastic Four.

The high-profile, big-budget outing, the Fantastic Four’s first under the Marvel Cinematic Universe umbrella, has been casting up in recent weeks ahead of a planned mid-summer shoot in England.

I wonder if Krasinski's appearance in Dr. Strange was sort of a public screen test. He wasn't very good as Mr Fantastic in that movie, so they picked someone else.

It was fan service for all the internet fan-casting of him to be in the role.

Us fellow DVD Talkers are determined to make Willie (or Willamina) Lumpkin happen, and I will add my voice to the chorus. If anyone involved with the film is lurking on this site, please cast the FF's mail carrier as a character in the film.

Right, just like Anson Mount back as Black Bolt and Patrick Stewart as Xavier. This was all multiverse/alternate reality stuff similar to the three Spider-men, so they were free to cast different actors, and I'm not sure they could've convinced Krasinski to commit to a bunch of movies.

That's what I was thinking, committing Krasinski to at least five or six films would have been a hard sell at this point in his career.

I think that was a publicity stunt casting by Marvel and they never had any real intention of using him beyond that token appearance. And he frankly wasn't great in the little screen time we got from his Mister Fantastic.

I was thinking possibly Alicia Masters but to be honest, it's not what I imagined she would look and sound like (and I'm saying this as a fan of Natasha).

Kind of old to be Johnny's girlfriend, isn't she? Unless he's into cougars...

Isn’t she a little tiny bit old to be Alicia?


Also I thought Krasinski was great as Mr Fantastic.
Was perfect casting in my HO

Yes. She actually did marry Johnny when Ben decided to stay in space after Secret Wars, but eventually she was revealed to be a Skrull doppelganger infiltrating the FF.

Yep, that was one reason why I couldn't imagine it. Also, I always pictured Alicia as a delicate flower, Natasha ain't that.

Remember when Marvel/Brian Michael Bendis just like... FORGOT that Luke Cage/Jessica Jones' daughter was a Skrull? Yeah, that was never followed up on, despite it being a major teaser thread leading into a major event entirely about who is and isn't a Skrull.
