The Stranger Things series has made its actors very fashionable and one of them could sign for the Fantastic Four movie.
When Disney bought FOX, it caused Marvel Studios to regain the film rights to The Fantastic Four and the X-Men. For now, we’ll still have to wait a bit to see the mutants (except for Deadpool). But the great team formed by Reed Richards (Mr. Fantastic), Sue Storm (Invisible Woman), Johnny Storm (Human Torch), and Ben Grimm (the thing) already have their film confirmed. So you need to know which actors will play them. And one of them could come out of the Stranger Things series.
For now, we only know that Jon Watts, the director of the three Spider-Man installments starring Tom Holland, will be responsible. In addition, it has long been speculated that John Krasinski and Emily Blunt are the stars who will play Mr. Fantastic and the Invisible Woman. Although now reports say that Marvel Studios is negotiating with Stranger Things actor Dacre Montgomery to play Johnny Storm / Human Torch.
They want to sign him for a long time.
Apparently, Kevin Feige and Jon Watts were impressed by the Australian actor’s portrayal of Billy Hargrove in Netflix’s hit Stranger Things. In fact, he’s been on Marvel’s radar since his time as the lead in the 2017 Power Rangers remake.
According to the source consulted: “ Marvel Studios considers the film The Fantastic Four by Jon Watts as a priority. So they are looking for a group of actors for the role of Johnny Storm, but Dacre Montgomery from Stranger Things seems to be leading the list.
They also say that Dacre Montgomery was originally considered to reboot Wolverine, but now they believe that “it would be perfect for Johnny Storm, and Jon Watts is very interested in casting the actor for the role. ”
Even if negotiations fail for the Stranger Things actor to sign for the Fantastic Four movie , it appears that the film studio will continue to try to hire Dacre Montgomery for future projects.
