A new leak pertaining to rumored casting on Marvel’s upcoming “Fantastic Four” movie suggests “Supergirl” alum Melissa Benoist might be a frontrunner for the role of Sue Storm.
Benoist, who is yet to really crack it on the big screen (though she had a fun ‘superhero’ part in “Jay & Silent Bob Reboot” a couple of years ago!) but is definitely due for it, is in contention along with Natalie Dyer according to a Reddit tipster.
Here’s the leak:
John Krasinski’s not coming back
Bryce Dallas Howard directing rumor’s false
Jason Segel won’t be playing The Thing
No director attached as of now
They are looking for actors in their 20s – 30s for the main characters
Penn Badgley’s one of the top choices for Reed
Simon Baker’s wanted for the villain
Other names thrown around for the F4 are: Logan Lerman, Freddy Carter, Melissa Benoist, Callan McAuliffe, Natalia Dyer and Jharrel Jerome
No offer has been sent out to any actor yet
Casting started a couple months ago and should be announced at D23
Guess we’ll know in a few months or not whether there’s any solidness to it.
