Mila Kunis has finally attached herself to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The 70’s Show star has mostly starred in a variety of rom-com films and also got critical acclaim for her role in The Black Swan. It will be a dream come true for many of her fans to see her getting cast in a superhero movie. This has finally come to fruition as rumors are swirling around of her being Sue Storm/ Invisible Girl in the new Marvel Fantastic Four Movie.
The Fantastic Four, from Marvel Studios, have been regarded as some of the year’s “big-get roles” that several talent agencies are attempting to secure for their clients. Before the anticipated commencement of production in late 2023 or early 2024, casting for the MCU remake is reportedly in the “early stages.”

On social media, fan castings and rumors have been rife, with the majority of them focusing on Reed Richards, the male lead. However, Sue Storm/Invisible Woman, who will undoubtedly serve as the film’s female lead and a crucial member of the MCU moving forward, plays one of the other essential parts.

Jessica Alba and Kate Mara already portrayed Sue Storm in earlier films, but the position is once again up for grabs. Even while the actress swears she hasn’t heard anything, Emily Blunt has been one of the most frequently mentioned names, especially in light of her husband John Krasinski’s Reed Richards cameo.

Photographs of the Friends with Benefits actress Mila Kunis and Fantastic Four director Matt Shakman having coffee together in Los Angeles were recently published by Daily Mail. Their meeting has sparked rumors that the actress could be in line to portray Sue Storm/Invisible Woman, as the MCU movie is presently casting Marvel’s First Family.

Just a few days before their meeting in Hollywood, Shakman responded to the numerous Fantastic Four casting rumors floating online, reassuring fans that they are “early in [their] process” of identifying their leading four. Mila Kunis, meanwhile, ruled out working in a superhero film because she would be working out “non-stop” but didn’t rule out doing something funny like the Guardians of the Galaxy.
Is Mila Kunis joining the MCU?
Seeing her above statements, it could be easily inferred that this coffee meeting was just two friends hanging out with each other. Hollywood is a small world, at the end of the day.
Even if Kunis were to join the Fantastic Four, there will be other female roles available besides Sue Storm, possibly ones that don’t require the same level of dedication and rigorous training that, at least as of 2018, the actress seems very eager to avoid.
If Kunis wants to play Alicia Masters, Marvel Studios may do it in Fantastic Four. The evil Puppet Master’s stepdaughter, a blind artist, betrayed her father to aid the First Family of Marvel and grew close to The Thing while caring nothing for his unkempt appearance.

Hence, we still don’t know what is happening in that role until an official confirmation is posted by Marvel. Casting is still in its early stages and Shankman and co. will meet many before settling on one.
