A British actor has left an indelible mark on the small screen with appearances in Dickensian, Howards End, and Catherine the Great. 

He’s also lent his talent to acclaimed BBC productions such as Les Miserables and Strike. Notably, Quinn’s breakthrough came with his portrayal of Eddie Munson in the fourth season of the hit series Stranger Things in 2022.


While Joseph Quinn is slated to portray Johnny Storm, aka the Human Torch, in the Fantastic Four franchise, his past performances provide compelling evidence of his suitability for the role.  However, what truly underscores his potential to nail the role lies in five specific movies and TV shows that unequivocally affirm his ability to embody Johnny Storm with precision and conviction.

1. Fantastic Four (2025)

Marvel has officially unveiled the cast for the next Fantastic Four film, and Joseph Quinn is set to take on the role of Johnny Storm. This is a big break for Quinn, giving him the chance to show off his skills and make a name for himself in Hollywood.

Joining him on screen will be Vanessa Kirby as Sue Storm, Pedro Pascal as Reed Richards, and Ebon Moss-Bachrach as Ben Grimm. The rest of the cast is still under wraps, adding an air of mystery to the project. 


Directed by Matt Shakman and written by Jeff Kaplan, Josh Friedman, and Ian Springer, the movie is based on the iconic comic created by Stan Lee. Fans can mark their calendars for July 25, 2025, when the film is set to hit theaters.

It’s shaping up to be an exciting showdown at the box office, with both The Fantastic Four and Superman: Legacy vying for attention in the same month.

Relapse, one of Quinn’s latest ventures, and a return to the horror genre. It seems the artist has a knack or a passion for these types of films, as he showcased in Stranger Things. 

This project offers him the chance to explore darker themes and display his versatility as an actor, gearing him up for the dynamic and multifaceted role of Johnny Storm. Meanwhile, Bret Easton Ellis, known for American Psycho, directs Quinn in this eagerly anticipated project, which he also penned.

The story follows a man who enters rehab after witnessing a harrowing death at a drug-fueled party. However, his rehabilitation program is jeopardized months later by his growing paranoia, fueled by his unstable personality and the invasive power of social media.


5. Stranger Things

In the mysterious world of Stranger Things, Season 5’s arrival heightens curiosity about Joseph Quinn’s role. While specifics are scarce, his potential to embody Johnny Storm shines through.

Quinn gained fame as Eddie Munson, sparking speculation of his return in Season 5. Although his Season 4 breakout led to a prequel, bringing back Eddie after his dramatic demise might not be ideal. Nonetheless, if Quinn does make a comeback, his performance could certainly impress as Johnny Storm.

Quinn’s participation in various projects underscores his talent and versatility as an actor. From big-budget blockbusters to independent films, Quinn consistently delivers engaging performances that resonate with audiences.
