Mila Kunis has been prominent on the MCU radar as of late, with rumours spreading online that she had been cast as Marvel Studios’ Susan Storm, aka the Invisible Woman, in the upcoming Fantastic Four movie, which all started after Kunis was spotted having lunch with the director, Matt Shakman.
Despite the plot and casting details for not just Fantastic Four, but any Marvel Studios project being extremely tight lipped, this hasn’t stopped the widespread of rumours to flood the web, with Kunis’ rumoured casting just being one of many to make its way online.
Mila Kunis Responds To MCU Casting Rumour
When appearing on a recent episode of The Late Late Show With James Corden, Kunis was asked by Corden about the Sue Storm casting rumours, to which Kunis responded with “apparently if you go to lunch with somebody that is also in the industry (…) you start working together, according to the internet”. This is a direct reference to the fact that Kunis’ spotted sighting with director Shakman, who will be directing Fantastic Four, was the reason that the casting rumours started to trend online.
Corden confirmed with Kunis during the show that she was talking about Shakman, with Kunis also adding “we went to a deli, we had lunch together, and the next day I was somehow in Fantastic Four, I am NOT in Fantastic Four but I know who is, but I don’t want to get in trouble with the mouse.”

Is Mila Kunis Just Playing Coy?
Fans have already begun to speculate online that Kunis may just be playing coy, comparing her response to Andrew Garfield’s “I’m not the werewolf” line when asked about returning as Spider-Man for Spider-Man: No Way Home, which turned out to all be a big coy with Garfield’s Spidey return being revealed once the threequel hit theatres in late 2021.
The cast and crew of Fantastic Four have yet to confirm who will be playing Susan Storm.
Kristen Bell Teased To Be Sue Storm?
The well-known industry scooper Daniel Richtman, aka DanielRPK, shared either a speculated post or a knowledgable tease that Kristen Bell, who is good friends with Mila Kunis, could be the person that Marvel Studios are eyeing up to play Susan Storm in Fantastic Four, see below for the tweet.
Fantastic Four comes to theatres on February 14, 2025.
