Vanessa Kirby Feels Fantastic About Playing Sue Storm in the New Fantastic Four


We always knew Vanessa Kirby was a powerful woman and actor. Now she gets her chance to be superpowered.

An MCU Fantastic Four movie is finally in the works after years of speculation and fan casting. A brief recap: Jessica Alba played scientist turned hero Sue Storm in the 2000s movies, which were fun if not particularly “good,” then Kate Mara took in the role in the 2015 film, which everyone kinda hated and decided didn’t happen. Here’s a full history.

Point is, fans and stans were excited and a bit surprised when Marvel dropped the news, on Valentine’s Day no less, that they had their new Four all lined up for a Marvel Studios film that will, presumably, tie into whatever phase the MCU is on when it comes out.

And since Susan, a.k.a. The Invisible Woman, was the very first female superhero created by Marvel, this makes Kirby a super-important addition to the canon. Also there will be men there playing other characters—I don’t really care about that.

“Happy Valentine’s Day everybody. From our family to yours. Very honoured to take on Sue Storm, Marvel’s OG lady since 1961. I hope to do her justice. 💙” the Napoleon and The Crown star wrote on Instagram alongside an old-school comic book-style illustration of the characters having a V-day party at home. Yes, that is Pedro Pascal as her love interest, Mr. Fantastic. Ebom Moss-Bachrach will play the rock guy, and Joseph Quinn will play the flame guy (okay, okay, Ben Grimm, a.k.a. The Thing, and Johnny Storm, a.k.a. The Human Torch).
