Fantastic Four has been in discussion since it was announced by Kevin Feige. Several stars were in the race to be Marvel’s first family. Reports stated that the ex-Superman fame was also a potential candidate to be the Smartest Man on the Planet.

All of these started when Henry Cavill left both Superman and Netflix’s The Witcher due to several reasons. Soon after the Enola Holmes actor left DC, the Marvel fandom went wild and there were rumors about his debut in the MCU. As the characters of Sentry and Hyperion were similar to Superman, many fans speculated that Cavill might appear in any of these roles.

Even though the reports of Pedro Pascal state that he is all set to be the new Reed Richards in the Fantastic Four reboot, there’s also something for Henry Cavill. The rumor mill is running strong that our Cavill can appear as Brian Braddock aka Captain Britain.

The 40-year-old is one of the most requested castings in the recent few years.
