As D23 Expo 2022 approaches, a monster rumor has emerged suggesting that Marvel Studios has found their Susan Storm. According to YouTuber John Campea, Golden Globe and Primetime Emmy Award-winning actress Jodie Comer will be announced as Sue Storm this weekend.
So one of the little pieces of whispering I started to hear about two months ago. And I didn’t give alot to it. I didn’t give alot of credence to it in my own head. It was regarding Fantastic Four, and it was Free Guy’s Jodie Comer… That she’s going to be our Sue Storm. And she’s going to be announced as Sue Storm at D23.Jodie Comer
Comer has been ascending for the past several years with roles in Help and Killing Eve garnering nominations and awards. The actress recently starred alongside Ryan Reynolds in Free Guy and Disney does love corporate synergy, so it’s sensible and possible that they have chosen to work with Comer again, this time on what must be one of Hollywood’s most coveted leading roles.
Now that Marvel Studios has found a director for Fantastic Four in Matt Shakman, all eyes are on the cast with D23 Expo presenting an excellent opportunity for Marvel Studios to make a big splash with a major announcement. If Comer is the pick for Storm, her age (29) might provide fans with a range not only for her husband, Reed Richards, but also her younger brother, Johnny Storm. Sue has often been portrayed as about a decade younger than Reed and eight years older than Johnny. Given Comer could pull off a Sue anywhere in her twenties, it would be possible for Johnny to be close in age to Peter Parker, who recently got his high school GED after dropping out of his senior year. Fans of the comics will know the two have been friends throughout the years, making the age of Johnny in the MCU something of interest.
Fantastic Four is set to hit theaters on November 8, 2024.
