Fantastic Four will finally make its way to the Marvel Cinematic Universe in 2025 after a short blip of Reed Richards in the last Doctor Strange movie.

Fans have been waiting for the Fantastic Four to make its way into the MCU but more importantly, they have been dying to find out, officially, who will play the characters. Now, we know.

Pedro Pascal who has been carving up the cinema and small screen since his turn in Game of Thrones will play Reed Richards, aka Mr. Fantastic. A great choice but some fans still held out hope that Krasinski would stay in the role.

Playing Sue Storm will be Vanessa Kirby who has also been doing great things, including playing the White Widow in the Mission Impossible films with Tom Cruise.

Johnny Storm, or The Human Torch, will be played by Joseph Quinn, and Ben Grimm, or the Thing, will be played by Ebon Moss-Bachrach.

So far there has been no official word on who will take on the role of Dr. Doom as the villain in the series. Some have speculated that the incredibly talented Mads Mikkelsen could take the helm.

What fans are waiting to see is how Marvel will approach the film. There have been three previous ideations for The Fantastic Four. Two were made in the early 2000s that included Ioan Gruffudd in the role of Mr. Fantastic and Chris Evans as the Human Torch. A sequel later brought the Silver Surfer to the big screen.

In 2015, Fantastic Four hit theaters with Kate Mara as Sue Storm and Miles Teller as Mr. Fantastic. The film was panned from the start and a sequel was never made.

Now, Marvel takes over. Marvel will integrate the Fantastic Four into the next phase of the films and it could bring new life to a series that hasn't quite been the same since Thanos was downed by The Avengers.

The Fantastic Four will enter the MCU around the same time as Deadpool who will officially join the MCU on July 26th when "Deadpool and Wolverine" hits theaters.

Fantastic Four will hit theaters, for now, on July 25th, 2025. 2025 is looking like a monster return for the MCU with F4 in July, Thunderbolts in May, Captain America: Brave New World in February, and another new comer to the MCU, Blade in November.

The only remaining "big" MCU entry that is left for fans to wonder about is the X-Men addition.
