‘Fantastic Four’ is currently the hottest upcoming MCU movie only a few months ago the release date and cast were announced, confirming what we’ve known for quite a while. Pedro Pascal will be MCU’s new Reed Richards, with Vanessa Kirby taking on the role of Sue Storm. The Thing and the Human Torch will be played by Ebon Moss-Bachrach and Joseph Quinn respectively. Julia Garner will be playing MCU’s version of Silver Surfer.

Filming is expected to begin this summer, and due to the release date being switched, ‘Thunderbolts*’ lost its July 2025 spot being moved to release earlier than expected on May 2, 2025. Despite the main cast being confirmed, there was not a speck of news regarding the movie’s possible villain.

All of this changed today when it was announced that Ralph Ineson will be playing Galactus in the upcoming movie, as confirmed by The Hollywood Reporter.

Galactus was the most rumored villain to appear in the movie, with leaks, scoops, and otherwise, specific rumors pointing in the direction of him having some kind of connection to Franklin Richards and eventually destroying the reality from which the Fantastic Four hail.

For months now the top choice to play Galactus has been Javier Bardem, but the role eventually went to one of the most imposing voices in the industry, Ralph Ineson.

Ralph Ineson is notable for his versatile acting career across film, television, and theater. He’s recognized for his distinctive voice, imposing physical presence, and ability to portray a wide range of characters. Some of his most notable roles include Finchy in ‘The Office’ (UK), a boring and politically incorrect office worker, Amycus Carrow in the ‘Harry Potter’ series, William in ‘The Witch,’ Dagmer Cleftjaw in ‘Game of Thrones.’

Ineson’s deep, resonant voice has led to numerous opportunities in narration and voice acting for documentaries, commercials, and video games, further highlighting his versatility as a performer.
