Stranger Things' Joseph Quinn Perfects Johnny Storm’s Catchphrase

Jul 02, 2024 11:30 AM

Joseph Quinn, the actor portraying Johnny Storm in the upcoming Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) film "The Fantastic Four," has been diligently practicing the iconic catchphrase "Flame on!" Known for transforming into The Human Torch, Storm's fiery line is one of Marvel's most recognized phrases. Quinn revealed on the Happy Sad Confused Podcast that he's put in substantial effort, spending around an hour in total fine-tuning his delivery, implying he's said it approximately 3,600 times. Filming for "The Fantastic Four," a 1960s period piece, starts on July 29, 2024, and the movie will be released on July 25, 2025. The film also features Pedro Pascal as Reed Richards, Vanessa Kirby as Sue Storm, and Ebon Moss-Bachrach as The Thing, along with a star-studded supporting cast.
