The actress would have been seriously approached by Marvel to accompany Adam Driver, but would have too high demands.
Marvel Studios’ quest seems quite complicated. Kevin Feige is reportedly on the hunt for the perfect ones right now Fantastic Four who will bring new life to his Marvel Cinematic Universe and would like to start by casting the daughter of the band, Sue Storm. Whether Adam Driver is still on pole to embody Reed Richards (we are still waiting for the official announcement), it is rumored thatEmma Stone was offered the role of Sue (played by Jessica Alba at the time). The Oscar-winning actress LaLa Land has already collaborated recently with Disney, for the very successful cruella. But it would be a first for the star in the world of superheroes.
The host of the The Hot Mic podcastJeff Sneider and Deadline reporter Justin Kroll reveal thatEmma Stone is the first choice to be the Invisible Woman, a “crucial role“according to Marvel Studios, who would like to cast a leading actress. The only problem: the salary requested by the actress. Emma Stone would be open to the proposal but would ask for a fee of 20 million dollars, which Marvel does not want to invest on a single name, to save money in order to form “the rest of the team”, with a strong cast. Besides, Adam Driver himself would not receive such an amount for Mr. Fantastic and Marvel would have the idea of distributing in a more equitable way the salaries of the four stars who will play his Fantastic Four.
“I was told that they went to see Emma Stoneand for 72 hours, Emma Stone was their Sue Storm”, assures Sneider. “We’ll see if Sue Storm ends up being a true movie star role, or more of a rising star. That’s probably the direction they’ll take today“.
Obviously, there is nothing official yet in all this. The Fantastic Four will be directed by Matt Shakman (WandaVision) from a script being rewritten by Josh Friedman, based on a draft by Jeff Kaplan and Ian Springer. The movie is due out in MCU Phase 6 on February 14, 2025.
While the film won’t shoot till top of 24, word around town is the Marvel will begin gearing up casting process of F4 this month. No names rumored for now but the belief is the focus will be casting Sue Storm first and building out the rest of the team after she is set. Stay Tuned
