The Marvel Cinematic Universe has found its Galactus in Ralph Ineson, who is set to play The Devourer of Worlds in The Fantastic Four.

The Hollywood Reporter has announced that Ralph Ineson will play Galactus in Marvel Studios’ upcoming The Fantastic Four. A British actor with a career spanning three decades, Ineson is known for his roles in the Harry Potter series, The Witch, Game of Thrones, and Chernobyl. Galactus, the antagonist of the film, is an intergalactic being who consumes planets, setting the stage for a monumental clash in the upcoming MCU movie.

Ineson’s casting as Galactus is part of the ongoing preparations for The Fantastic Four, which is scheduled to begin shooting this mid-summer in England. This marks the first appearance of the Fantastic Four under the Marvel Cinematic Universe umbrella, signaling a new direction for the iconic superhero team.

Ralph Ineson’s distinctive deep voice makes him particularly suited for the role of the cosmic entity, who will likely be brought to life with CGI. While Ineson might seem like an unexpected choice for Galactus, especially considering rumors that had linked actors like Antonio Banderas and Javier Bardem to the role, his proven ability to deliver excellent performances makes him a perfect fit for the MCU.

What we know about the Fantastic Four movie

Marvel Studios recently announced the cast for its Fantastic Four reboot, setting the stage for a new era of MCU adventures. Stepping into the roles of the beloved superhero team are Pedro Pascal as Reed Richards, Vanessa Kirby as Sue Storm, Ebon Moss-Bachrach as Ben Grimm, and Joseph Quinn as Johnny Storm.

The Fantastic Four characters were created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby, with the team making its first comic book appearance in 1961. The previous Fantastic Four movies, while popular, were not well-received by fans or critics, and Marvel Studios has an opportunity to right the wrongs of the past and deliver a feature that is true to the spirit of the comics.

Behind the scenes, The Fantastic Four will be brought to life under the direction of Matt Shakman, with Josh Friedman writing the screenplay. With production slated to begin in summer 2024, Marvel fans can look forward to the film’s journey to theaters in July 2025, marking a new chapter in the MCU.

Fantastic Four opens on July 25, 2025. Stay tuned for all the latest news regarding the future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and make sure to subscribe to our YouTube channel for more content!
