Tom Elllis rumored for MCU Fantastic Four role

Tom Ellis, star of the Lucifer TV series, is rumored to be a frontrunner to portray Reed Richards in the Fantastic Four movie.

DeuxMoi posted on their Instagram account that Tom Ellis was in contention for the role of the leader of the Fantastic Four.

The post mentions others auditioning for major roles in the film, including Maddie Hasson, Daveed Diggs, Michael Provost, and Jason Biggs.

In his role as Lucifer Morningstar in the Lucifer series, Ellis portrayed a hedonistic, funny, and yet sympathetic version of the Lord of Hell.

The Welsh actor certainly has the charisma and acting range to play Mister Fantastic, having played an obsessed mad scientist before as Victor Frankenstein.

Directed by Matt Shakman, with a screenplay by Jeff Kaplan and Ian Springer, Fantastic Four is slated for a February 14, 2025 release date.
