Emmy and Golden Globe winner Julia Garner is set to grace the Marvel Cinematic Universe as she joins the cast of “The Fantastic Four” in the role of Shalla-Bal, a character reminiscent of the iconic Silver Surfer from Marvel comics. Garner, known for her acclaimed portrayal of Ruth Langmore in the hit series “Ozark,” will star alongside a stellar ensemble including Pedro Pascal as Reed Richards (Mr. Fantastic), Vanessa Kirby as Sue Storm (the Invisible Woman), Joseph Quinn as Johnny Storm (the Human Torch), and Ebon Moss-Bachrach as Ben Grimm (the Thing).

Directed by Matt Shakman, renowned for his work on “WandaVision,” and featuring a screenplay by a talented team including Josh Friedman, Jeff Kaplan, Ian Springer, and Eric Pearson, “Fantastic Four” is poised to captivate audiences upon its release on July 25, 2025. This highly anticipated project is rumored to transport viewers back to the 1960s, the era in which the Fantastic Four comics were first introduced by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby, laying the foundation for the expansive Marvel Universe.

Garner’s portrayal of Shalla-Bal offers a fresh take on the Silver Surfer mythos, distinct from previous iterations portrayed by Doug Jones and voiced by Laurence Fishburne.
