Fans of Marvel comics, and in particular the group of superheroes known as the Fantastic Four, are buzzing with anticipation. According to insider Daniel "RPK" Richtman, Anya Taylor-Joy may appear in the new reboot of the film of the same name. And in an unusual role for herself, the villainess Silver Surfer. In Marvel comics, this character was a man, but taking into account the latest trends in Hollywood, it was decided to make her a woman.

Earlier, the same Richtman reported that Pedro Pascal auditioned for the role of Mr. Fanastic in Matt Shakman's new film, and Javier Bardem for the role of Galactus. Taking into account this information, it seems that Marvel is seriously engaged in resuscitation of the once successful, but forgotten franchise.

Nowadays, the superheroes of the famous publishing house are increasingly losing popularity. Thus, the recently released film “Captain Marvel 2” collected only $47 million in its first weekend of release. This is the lowest figure in the history of comic book film releases.
