Fantastic Four is returning to the big screen yet again, this time as part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

This reboot requires a new cast, and the rumour mill has been buzzing with speculation about who is playing who. Adam Driver as Mr Fantastic and Jodie Comer as the Invisible Woman are just two of the names, while Family Guy's Mila Kunis has seemingly been linked to both Invisible Woman and, strangely, The Thing.

Appearing on The Late Late Show with James Corden, she explained the she went for food with the film's director Matt Shakman and "the next day I was somehow in Fantastic Four...

"Apparently, if you go to lunch with somebody that is also in the industry, you then start working together, according to the internet."

She teased that she does know who has been cast in the film, but wouldn't be the one to reveal it. "I don't want to get in trouble with The Mouse," she said. "So none of you will find out."

For Comer's part, she admitted that she did audition, but wouldn't say anything beyond that.

You's Penn Badgley is another actor linked to the reboot, and also addressed the speculation, stating: "Neither confirm nor deny. I don't know what to say about that."

The MCU Fantastic Four is scheduled to be released on February 14, 2025.
