In recent months, the supposed cast of the fantastic four It has sparked many rumors. At the beginning of the week we reported on the supposed participation of Eiza González as Sue Storm. But the one who started it all was Diego Luna. A few months ago, certain rumors began that the protagonist of Andor would participate in the expected Marvel reboot playing Reed Richards. The actor had not commented on it, but before the rain of comments, Diego Luna finally answered the question, will he be in The Fantastic 4?
Following the end of Andor and her recent Golden Globe nomination, Luna appeared on the podcast Sith Council. There he discussed the impact of the galactic series and what comes in the coming months for his career. That gave rise to the question that many expected. The actor of Mexican origin did not hesitate to respond to the rumors that already link him to the MCU.
“I was just talking about that this morning, about the rumors. From when you become part of the rumors, like half of them are real, you know. It’s just unbelievable how many things I see out there now. All I can tell you, man, is that for the next two years I’m going to be busy. And in two years we will see if what I want to do is even film”.
Basically, the actor confirms that he could not dedicate enough time to a production of this type. Considering the skills of his leads, and the complex post production he would need, the fantastic four it would have to be filmed between the end of 2023 and the beginning of 2024. According to his words, Luna will be busy in that time with the filming of andor season 2 and the promotional tour that involves the launch.
For now, there is not a single confirmed name in the cast of the fantastic four, and although Diego Luna is gaining more and more popularity in the Hollywood industry, that will not be the project with which he joins the MCU. Another aspect that keeps him from becoming Reed Richards is time. Working for Marvel would be a multi-year commitment, and Luna may not be willing to continue on film sets for many more years.
Now that Diego Luna is practically ruled out as Reed Richards, and that John Krasinski is hesitant to play him again, who could take on such a character?
