Fantastic Four cast revealed – including The Last Of Us star and The Crown actress

Marvel Studios have revealed the actors who will play the Fantastic Four in their upcoming movie.

English stars Vanessa Kirby and Joseph Quinn, The Last Of Us actor Pedro Pascal and The Bear star Ebon Moss-Bachrach will take on the roles of astronauts who develop special powers.

The studio posted a retro photo on its social media showing a cartoon image of the four in their respective roles.

It shows them wearing their uniforms, with Pascal, 48, and Kirby, 35, holding hands and Moss-Bachrach, 46, reading a magazine.

Based on the comic book, the movie will follow the crew after they are exposed to cosmic radiation and develop superhero powers, turning them into celebrities.

Moss-Bachrach will play Ben Grimm, also known as The Thing, who has skin which looks like it’s made of rocks.

He recently won an Emmy for his portrayal of Cousin Richie in hit high-stress kitchen drama The Bear, and previously played Desi Harperin in TV series Girls.

The Fantastic Four has been made into various films and TV series across the years.

A previous Fantastic Four movie came out in 1994, followed by a reboot in 2005 starring Welsh actor Ioan Gruffudd, Jessica Alba, Chris Evans and Michael Chiklis.

They all returned in 2007 for Fantastic Four: Rise Of The Silver Surfer, in which they learned they were not the only super-powered beings in the universe.

In 2015, Miles Teller, Kate Mara, Michael B Jordan and Jamie Bell starred in another Fantastic Four film, and animated TV series based on the comics have aired throughout the years.

The new movie is due in cinemas next July.
