Exciting news, Disney and Marvel fans! Natasha Lyonne, best known for her leading role in the AppleTV+ hit series “Poker Face,” is officially joining the cast of Marvel’s upcoming “The Fantastic Four” movie. According to our friends at Deadline, Lyonne secures a spot alongside a constellation of star-studded talents in what promises to be one of Marvel’s most anticipated releases.

Joining Lyonne will be none other than Pedro Pascal as Reed Richards/Mr. Fantastic, Vanessa Kirby as Sue Storm/Invisible Girl, Joseph Quinn as Johnny Storm/Human Torch, and Ebon Moss-Bachrach as Ben Grimm/The Thing. Additionally, Julia Garner will portray Silver Surfer, and Ralph Ineson will take on the role of the formidable Galactus. There are also tantalizing rumors of John Malkovich and Paul Walter Hauser stepping into yet-to-be-revealed roles.

The details of Lyonne’s character remain a closely guarded secret, but her addition to the cast surely amps up the excitement. The film’s screenplay is being shaped by the talented scribe behind “Avatar,” Josh Friedman, with Erik Pearson, noted for his work on “Black Widow” and “Thor: Ragnarok,” giving it a final polish. Directing this powerhouse cast is Matt Shakman, who brilliantly helmed “WandaVision.” Behind the scenes, producers Grant Curtis and Nick Pepin add their expertise, continuing their successful collaboration from “Moon Knight.”

For those who fondly remember her previous Disney-related work, Lyonne appeared as Shelly Krippendorf in Touchstone Pictures’ “Krippendorf’s Tribe” (1998), Tanya Pincus in “Ad Astra,” and Darci in the 2001 Miramax film “Kate & Leopold.” Her impressive career also includes iconic roles such as Nicky Nichols in Netflix’s “Orange is the New Black” and Jessica in the “American Pie” series.

Mark your calendars because “Fantastic Four” is set to hit theaters on July 25, 2025. This blend of a stellar cast and an exciting production team promises a film that could redefine superhero cinema.
