Joseph Quinn Talks Playing Johnny Storm in Fantastic Four

Paul Walter Hauser has been cast in an unknown role for Fantastic Four, plus we have some Mole Man rumors to ponder over also.

In a recent interview Joseph Quinn talks playing Johnny Storm in Fantastic Four for the first time since he was cast. Quinn gives nothing away and we know filming hasn’t yet started on the movie. However, he was keen to express how excited he was to get the chance when he spoke to EW.

Quinn began by stating he is stepping into big boots taking over a rile once played by Chris Evans.

“I remember really enjoying Chris Evans’s performance as Johnny in the previous films, and it felt like this would be a really exciting opportunity; I was absolutely signed up.” 

When asked whether Evans’ version of the character was on his mind when he auditioned, Quinn clarifies, “No. I mean, you’re going to make it your own.” Still, he adds, “It’s big boots [to fill].”

“I knew that they’d been talking about making the Fantastic Four in the Marvel Universe for a while,” Quinn says. “I had a talk with [director] Matt [Shakman], and it was very clear with the kind of people who they were attaching to it what they were trying to do with it. There are aspects of it that are very much a singular thing and its own thing.”

“Working with Vanessa, Pedro, Evan — they’re really consummate pros and brilliant in everything they’re in,” he says. “So I’m really looking forward to establishing this familial dynamic with them and with Matt Shakman’s guidance.”

Quinn was asked about the possibility superhero fatigue is a real issue going forward?

“I think that with the story of the Fantastic Four, it feels like we want to get this right,” Quinn says when asked about those concerns. “There are aspects of it that are very different to other Marvel films. That felt very compelling to me. And again, going back to who’s involved. Matt, of course, the director, I think is brilliant, and the cast. I’ve read it and the script is brilliant. It’s really brilliant. I’m delighted to have this opportunity.”

He adds, “Superhero movies are movies about people. And if we’re invested in the people and the characters and the peril and the spectacle, then that’s why people go to the theaters to watch films. We’re not just in a penny; we’re in for a pound with this one. We’re going to go for it.”
