Three-time Emmy nominee Pedro Pascal was a fan favorite to be cast as Reed Richards in the MCU’s Fantastic Four. Deadline reported in November that the Wonder Woman 1984 actor was in talks to play the leader of the superhero family in the film. On Wednesday, Marvel Studios announced via their X page that Pascal along with Vanessa Kirby, Joseph Quinn, and Ebon Moss-Bachrach were confirmed for the roles.

While the announcement itself was something to excite the fans, one fan made the day even more exciting for Marvel fans. The X page, @21xfour, posted a concept art they designed featuring Pedro Pascal as Reed Richards. In the art, Pascal is seen wearing a modern-day version of the classic suit. The dark blue suit is combined with black accents and a Fantastic Four insignia on the front.

The artist revealed that they had been working on the concept for some time and the casting announcement was the perfect timing to release their work. The fan had earlier worked on several pieces. One particular thing they focused on the art, something which Marvel kept in their announcement picture as well, was Pedro Pascal’s mustache which perfectly fit in with the character.

Pascal got his breakthrough in television with his role as Oberyn Martell in Game of Thrones and went on to grab and deliver on several opportunities. The Marvel role came at a high point in Pascal’s career. John Krasinski, Adam Driver, Matt Smith, and Jake Gyllenhaal were contenders for the Mister Fantastic role before Pascal. Krasinski played the role in a brief cameo appearance in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.
