Jennifer Lawrence will become invisible in her MCU debut; the Oscar-winning actress has been cast in The Fantastic Four as Susan Richards. According to The Daily Mail, Jennifer Lawrence will begin filming The Fantastic Four in Australia next month.
The report confirmed my scoop from yesterday. That can be found here.
Furthermore, The Daily Mail revealed that “Marvel superhero film franchise is set to ‘bed down’ in Australia ‘for the foreseeable future.'”
Jon Watts has been signed to direct The Fantastic Four; in the meantime, he is currently working on Spider-Man 3.
March seems a bit fast for production on The Fantastic Four; after all, Watts isn’t even done with the web-slinger yet.
Most likely Jennifer Lawrence is shooting a post-credits sequence for Thor: Love and Thunder involving the Fantastic Four.
Jennifer Lawrence Cast In The Fantastic Four – Scoop Confirmed
Emily Blunt was long rumored and speculated for the Invisible Woman.
Blunt was disinterested in lengthy contracts; consequently, that probably torpedoed the deal.
While The Daily Mail (nor the original source, The Daily Telegraph) acknowledged that Jennifer Lawrence is the Invisible Woman, the process of elimination easily rules out anyone else.
Jessica Alba originally portrayed the Invisible Woman in two Fox movies, 2005’s Fantastic Four and 2007’s Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer.
While entertaining films for the time, they lacked the big budget and epic scope of the original comic books.
Kate Mara played her in Josh Trank’s forgotten Fantastic Four flop in 2015.
This will be Jennifer Lawrence’s second run with a Marvel superhero.
She played the mutant Mystique in four of Fox’s X-Men movies. However, this is her first with Marvel Studios.
John Krasinski remains the front-runner for Reed Richards.
That is, if he hasn’t signed already.
