A new rumor suggests that the MCU may be eyeing Oscar winner Javier Bardem as Galactus in Fantastic Four.
After starring in The Little Mermaid, Javier Bardem could stay in the Disney family. A new rumor suggests that the Oscar winner could be considered for a major MCU, Fantastic Four role.
Marvel is searching for Galactus?
There is a lot of buzz going on about the MCU. It looks like they may be switching gears from Kang (Jonathan Majors) to being their next Thanos-level big villain.
Jeff Snyder is reporting that Bardem is being eyed to play Galactus in Fantastic Four. Keep in mind, this is the same source that alerted Snyder about the possible casting of Pedro Pascal in the same film. However, a source indicated that Bardem’s participation in the MCU project is dependent on his schedule. He said they had “scheduling conflicts” with what Snyder suggests could be Apple’s upcoming F1 film with Brad Pitt and Damson Idris.
It’s possible that this could work, given that Galactus will be a voice role, much like Josh Brolin’s Thanos. As Snyder notes, there’s probably a motion-capture element that would require Bardem’s services, but if they want him, something could probably work out.
According to Snyder, Antonio Banderas was also reportedly eyed for the role of Fantastic Four. But he insists Bardem is “the frontrunner.”
Javier Bardem is an Oscar-winning actor for his role in No Country for Old Men. He has also starred in films such as Skyfall, Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales and Being the Ricardos. Bardem starred in Denis Villeneuve’s Dune and will reprise the role in the upcoming sequel.
From 2022-2023, Bardem had an interesting performance. He first starred in Lyle, Lyle, Crocodile before starring as King Triton in Disney’s live-action Little Mermaid film. Upcoming, he will star in Spellbound alongside Rachel Zegler. The film will reunite him with his Being the Ricardos co-star, Nicole Kidman. The film also stars John Lithgow, Jennifer Lewis and Nathan Lane.
