Vanessa Kirby will reportedly play Sue Storm in the upcoming Fantastic Four film.
Kirby’s addition to the cast was mentioned during a live episode of The Hot Mic with Jeff Sneider and John Rocha. Sneider unveiled a report he heard that Vanessa Kirby will portray the superhero in the upcoming movie.
This MCU superhero movie will introduce Fantastic Four into the Marvel Universe. On Thursday (Aug. 3), Sneider also tweeted about Kirby playing as Sue Storm.
“OK, to recap #FantasticFour notebook dump:
Reed – Not cast, unlikely to be Matt Smith
Sue – Vanessa Kirby
Johnny – Cast, but apparently NOT Jack Quaid
Thing – Cast, but apparently NOT Paul Walter Hauser Galactus – Latino
Ebon Moss-Bachrach – Not Thing, but possibly Silver Surfer,” he wrote.
Vanessa Kirby recently portrayed Alanna Mitsopolis in Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part One. She can also be seen in films like Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw, Pieces of a Woman, and the upcoming Napoleon movie with Joaquin Phoenix.
If Kirby is confirmed as Sue Storm in the new movie, she will join actresses like Jessica Alba and Kate Mara, who played the iconic character in previous movies.
