Fantastic Four Villain Will Be Galactus, Played by Ralph Ineson; John Malkovich Also Joins Cast

The Marvel Cinematic Universe’s Fantastic Four film is gearing up for production, and we now not only have confirmation on who the Big Bad of the movie will be, but also who will be playing them.

The Hollywood Reporter broke the news yesterday that Ralph Ineson—whose credits include The First Omen, The Green Knight, and the upcoming films Frankenstein and Nosferatu—has joined the Fantastic Four cast and will be playing the villain, Galactus.

Galactus is a major Marvel bad guy created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby. While he used to be a mere human, circumstances made him a giant cosmic being who likes to scarf down planets in order to stay alive and thriving. He had an appearance as a CGI monstrosity in 2007’s Fantastic Four: The Rise of the Silver Surfer, and we can only hope (and I’m optimistic) that Ineson’s portrayal will be a vast improvement.

Deadline had more casting news for the upcoming MCU movie yesterday: None other than John Malkovich has also joined in the cast in an unknown role. The two join previously announced cast members Pedro Pascal, Joseph Quinn, Ebon Moss-Bachrach, Vanessa Kirby (the titular Fantastic Four) as well as Paul Walter Hauser and Julia Garner as Shalla-Bal. The film is directed by WandaVision’s Matt Shakman and takes place in the 1960s.

Fantastic Four is set to start shooting sometime this summer in England and is currently scheduled to premiere in theaters on July 25, 2025. icon-paragraph-end
