Jessica Alba Eager for MCU Comeback

Jul 05, 2024 2:47 PM

Jessica Alba, who starred as Sue Storm (The Invisible Woman) in the 2005 "Fantastic Four" film and its sequel, expressed her eagerness to return to the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU). Despite her enthusiasm and fond memories of the role, Marvel Studios has not approached her about a potential return. The upcoming reboot of The Fantastic Four will feature Vanessa Kirby, Pedro Pascal, Ebon Moss-Bachrach, and Joseph Quinn as the superhero team, setting the film in a 1960s alternate MCU timeline. The reboot hints at possibilities for variant heroes, similar to the Illuminati in "Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness," with Julia Garner reportedly playing an alternate version of Silver Surfer. The film is scheduled for release on July 25, 2025, following several other MCU movies and Disney+ shows.

The Fantastic Four, originally introduced by Marvel Comics in 1961, are one of the most iconic superhero teams. Their earlier cinematic versions in 2005 and 2007 were pivotal in bringing superhero films into mainstream popularity, although they received mixed reviews. The upcoming film's new direction and casting decisions, alongside its period setting, indicate Marvel Studios' commitment to refreshing the franchise and exploring multiverse storylines, a central theme in recent MCU phases.
