Fantastic Four is just two years away and fans can’t be more excited to know more about the film’s casting. But looks like one of the actor’s agents have already started a campaign to make him one of the characters of the Fantastic Four. The actor is none other than Austin Butler, who recently portrayed the role of the very famous Elvis Presley.
Its no doubt, the actor has proved himself to be one of the best in the industry. According to some reports, it’s known that Austin’s agents are campaigning for him to become the human torch in the Fantastic 4 franchise. In a recent podcast episode of The Hot Mic, Jeff Sneider says that agents are “putting him [Austin Butler] up for Human Torch”.
In 2005 & 2007, Fantastic 4 the human torch was played by Chris Evans. But the film never made it to the third sequel. The reason behind it was the poor performance at the box office. Later on, Chris was offered the role of Captain America in the MCU.
Speaking of Fantastic Four has already gotten its director and its none other than Matt Shakman. For those of you who don’t know, Matt proved to be an excellent director for the famous WandaVision Series. No other cast details and plot is revealed as of now.
The film will arrive in theatres on November 8, 2024. It would be great to see if Austin Butler becomes part of the Marvel Universe.
