    Gotta think the movie is likely a good 4-5 years away, so people need to be thinking ages.

    People who are already in their early 30s wont be able to play Johnny when they're pushing 40, and to avoid awkwardness (and conform to Hollywood rules about female leads), Reed is unlikely to be played by someone in their 50s when Sue will will be late 20s/early 30s max.

    Dont think about who would be perfect NOW - think who will be perfect by then. Sadly, a lot of great choices in this thread are going to have missed the boat because of age.

    3) Johnny Storm/Scott Eastwood: Handsome, big family name, good enough acting chops and the guy could use a jumpstart.

    4) Ben Grim/Jeffrey Dean Morgan: Come on, don't tell me you never thought of this?

    Victor Von Doom/Toby Stephens: Dunno if people have seen Black Sails, but while the whole cast is stellar, Stephens just... shines. He's a stage actor (only did Black Sails after seeing Six Feet Under) so he can bring the theatrical element Doom needs. Plus, his mother's Dame Maggie Smith, so there's your Cynthia in case they do a Doom solo.

    On the off-chance they try and do the Ultimate F4, I'd go with:

    1) Reed Richards: Matt Smith
    2) Sue Storm: Ana De Armas
    3) Johnny Storm: Ansel Egort
    4) Ben Grimm: Sam Worthington
    +
    Victor Van Damme: Leonardo DiCaprio
    Real solid casting, but I'd definitely want someone around Tom Holland's age to play Johnny.

    Hmm, yeah, that's valid. Maybe... Dacre Montgomery?

    Reed Richards- Tom Cavanagh
    Sue Storm- Taylor Schilling
    Ben Grimm- David Harbour.
    Johhny Storm- Asa Butterfield. I think Johnny should be around the same age as Peter Parker like he is in the comics.

    Doctor Doom- Oscar Isaac
    Galactus- John DiMaggio (voice). DiMaggio has voiced Galactus before, and I my opinion, he did a good job.
    Silver Surfer- Zachary Quinto
    Puppet Master- John Malkovich
    Kang the Conqueror- Mark Strong

    Give me

    Reed: Mat Smith - 1) he's already said that he'd love to be part of the MCU 2) if you want to put Reed Richards in a context that your everyday 14 year old can get behind, you just say "he's like Rick, but he stretches and stuff." Rick is in large part based off the Doctor (and Reed I'm sure), and Smith is one of the most beloved modern Doctors. You also kind of want to do attractive but not Ken doll-y. Basically you want tumblr bait. Plus, he's a great actor

    Sue: Jessica Chastain - Now this is leading lady material right here. She knows how to draw a room to her without resorting to the tired old tricks. Her presence will end up being more overtly commanding than anyone else save maybe Frank and Ben post-accident.

    Johnny: Joe Keery - It's perfect casting. He's got that whole arrogant and shortsighted but has a heart of gold thing going on. His role in Stranger Things has most of everyone keeping him on their radar.

    Ben: Kristofer Hivju - No idea if the homie can pull off the accent or not, but I've got faith. He's got a great sense of humor, and I've got a pretty good feeling that he'd be able to capture Ben's melancholy disposition.

    Future Franklin: Garrett Hedlund - Frank has to be the culmination of the very best parts of his parents and his uncles. Hedlund has the look of someone who has a cross between Johnny's whimsy and Reed's macro scale thinking.

    Future Val: Taylor Schilling - I almost picked her for Sue, but I honestly think her talents work better as Val. She's the kid that has a little Victor in her, and Schillinig pays that sort of shiftiness very well.

    This is true. People should be looking at CW and Netflix shows when thinking about the FF.

    They should use a similar process with Colossus in Deadpool for the Thing.

    I would watch. Although I'm wondering if Morgan shouldn't play Doom instead?

    I like a lot of the suggestions made so far. My personal picks would be...

    Johnny Storm - Dacre Montgomery. He has the look and can definitely play cocky.


    Sue Storm - Taylor Schilling. She makes an unlikable character sympathetic on Orange is the New Black. What could she do with a character that people are actually supposed to like?


    Reed Richards - Matt Smith. He was a fantastic Doctor Who, and can bring a sense of fun to a character who often (wrongly) comes across as stodgy or boring.


    Ben Grimm - Joe Dempsie. Although he's younger than Matt Smith, he has a tough-guy look and can play as older. I think he can hit the right notes of angst and anger while remaining likable (and a bit of a wiseacre) as Ben Grimm.
