Marvel Rumor: A Fantastic Four Hero Is In Deadpool 3 – But Not The One You May Think

l intro 1713926449

Chris Evans’ return as Johnny Storm might seem farfetched at first glance, considering he’s seemingly done with his time in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, with his arc as Captain America beautifully concluding in “Avengers: Endgame.” However, in a past interview with Josh Horowitz of MTV News, Evans, who loved being in the “Fantastic Four” films, was asked if he’d ever suit up in the role again. The actor did not oppose the idea.

“I would love it,” Evans told Horowitz in June 2022. “That would actually be an easier sell to me than coming back as Cap. Cap is so precious to me, and I almost don’t want to disrupt what a beautiful experience that was, but Johnny Storm, I feel like he didn’t really get his day. That was before Marvel really found its footing. So I love that role, and who knows?”

A surprise appearance from Evans in “Deadpool & Wolverine” as Johnny Storm would be a lot of fun and wouldn’t be out of place considering the number of returning actors in the project. However, Evans’ A-list cameo would be the most stunning compared to the more minor characters set to appear in the film. If the upcoming movie wanted to go all out, Evans’ (and perhaps some of his “FF” castmates) return finally presents a chance to do the Human Torch justice in the MCU. Even if it’s just a tiny role, the actor’s rumored comeback adds considerable excitement to an already mega-hyped film.
