Pedro Pascal, known for "The Last of Us" and "The Mandalorian", may star in a new Marvel movie. Deadline's sources report that the actor's representatives are in talks to cast him in the upcoming "Fantastic Four". It is reported that Pascal could play the role of Reed Richards — Mr. Fantastic, the leader of the legendary superhero team.
