Ok, I've heard 2 theories on who could
play him and then their is my pick. Lets
see...

John Krasinski. Currently the internet
favorite. Its considered a plus that we
might get Emily Blunt to play Sue Storm by
casting him.

Keanu Reeves- The Dark Horse candidate as
everyone seems to want him in the MCU.

MY PICK-Mine is Patrick Wilson of
INSIDIOUS and THE CONJURING fame. No other
reason than I think he's a good actor who
looks the part.

My picks for the eest of the 4 are as
follows:
Alice Eve as Sue Storm
Zach Efron as Johnny Storm
Daid Harbour as Ben Grimm.

Who do you want to see as Reed Richards
and/or the rest of The Fantastic Four?

Anson Mount. After seeing him as Pike, thereís no way he wouldnít make a great Reed. Doubt it would happen since heís already played Black Bolt, tho.

Playing the Torch didnít prevent Chris Evans playing Captain America.

But Iím going to step away, now. Casting threads invariably end up making me feel as if Iíve wasted the last 40 years.

True, JB. But he played the Torch for another studio. In theory, Mount has already played a lead character for Marvel. 

I say ďin theoryĒ because not many watched it and even fewer liked it.

Johnny should be a teenager.

If you're going for the Jeffrey Hunter look, Henry Cavill minus some of his Superman bulk would be a pretty close match.

Zach Efron as Johnny Storm 

-----

It's depressing to say this aloud, but Zac Efron is too old to play Johnny, even with his babyface.

I'd be perfectly fine with Marvel ignoring INHUMANS and casting Anson Mount as Reed.

My choice for Sue has been Rose McIver for a while now.

I think the FF would be very difficult to cast.

Had he not played Batman, I'd have chosen George Clooney to
play Reed about 15-20 years ago. I could definitely see
Anson Mount in the role now.
