If Pedro Pascal plays Mr. Fantastic, there's still no reason to see a Fantastic Four movie

The 4th known movie project based on FF to date, if this Slash Film news is correct, will star an actor in the role the stretchy leader of the quartet who's simply not fit for the role:
"Game of Thrones," "The Mandalorian," the DC Universe, "The Last of Us," and now Marvel: Pedro Pascal continues to establish himself as one of the preeminent franchise actors of the 21st century. After much speculation, wondering, fan-casting, and impatience, word has come out — and /Film's sources can confirm — that Pascal will be starring as Reed Richards, also known as Mr. Fantastic, in the upcoming "Fantastic Four" reboot set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

The news was initially reported by Daniel RPK, but according to sources close to the project who spoke with /Film, Pascal has officially signed on the dotted line. Although Daniel RPK's report says Pascal is in talks, /Film's source says the deal is done and should be announced soon. We have reached out to Disney for comment.
Gee, there's nothing to miss then, is there? Pascal, whose resume also includes his role in Wonder Woman 1984, is one of countless modern day ideologues in Hollywood who can't keep their mouths shut when it comes to political issues, and in Pascal's case, he made vicious attacks on Donald Trump and his supporters, and, unlike Gina Carano, for men of Pascal's standing, it's okay, and he wasn't fired from the Mandalorian over them. With more and more noticeable ideologues being hired for projects like these, that's one more reason besides the woke direction Marvel films and TV programs now take that it's not worth viewing them anymore.

I guess what's also regrettable is that the comic that served as Marvel's takeoff in the Silver Age has never been done justice in the movies, however you view this. And it's unlikely a film prepared under the Disney ownership will fare any better. But worst of all is how, after the early 2000s, the FF, like everything else in Marvel's comics output, collapsed artistically under bad management and has never recovered.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
