With the production of Fantastic Four set to begin later this year, Marvel Studios is reportedly in the final stages of casting the film. And according to recent rumors, the studio has sent out a massive offer to Margot Robbie.

While this remains just a rumor and should be taken with a grain of salt, there are murmurs out there that Marvel Studios have offered the 32-year-old Robbie the role of Sue Storm, a.k.a. the Invisible Woman.

Additionally, there are rumors that they’ve offered Reed Richards a.k.a Mr. Fantastic to Adam Driver and Johnny Storm/Human Torch to Paul Mescal.

Directed by WandaVision filmmaker Matt Shakman, Fantastic Four will serve as the MCU’s introduction to Marvel’s “First Family”, who has yet to appear in the franchise despite being among their most popular characters.

This certainly won’t be the first time that the Fantastic Four are on the big screen, as they previously featured in 2005’s Fantastic Four, 2007’s Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer, and the 2015 reboot. Those films, however, were produced by 20th Century Studios, which was acquired by Disney a few years back, thus allowing for the iconic characters to join the MCU.

Taking on the role of Sue Storm would certainly be a massive career choice for Robbie, as she’s likely to be locked into the role for at least the next decade. This would also mark the second massive comic book movie role that she’s taken on in her already acclaimed career, as she’s been staring as Harley Quinn in the DCEU/now-DCU since 2016.

Next up for Robbie — who has recently starred in projects such as Amsterdam and Babylon — will next be seen starring in a pair of films this summer, Wes Anderson’s Asteroid City and Greta Gerwig’s Barbie.

At the time of this writing, Fantastic Four is currently scheduled to hit theaters on February 14, 2025. The next Marvel Cinematic Universe film to hit theaters will be Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, which releases on Friday, May 5.
