'Fantastic Four' Star Ralph Ineson Relies on His Son to Teach Him About Marvel Lore

The actor who will play planet eater, Galactus, in the 'Fantastic Four' reboot develops deeper appreciation for Marvel Universe after getting schooled by his son on the subject.

AceShowbiz - After a disappointing portrayal in 2007's "Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer," Galactus is set for redemption with Ralph Ineson cast as the iconic cosmic entity in the upcoming remake "The Fantastic Four."

Ineson, known for his roles in projects such as "The Office" and "The Green Knight," recently revealed that his son has been educating him about Marvel lore in preparation for his role as Galactus.

"I'm not someone who knows the whole lore of Marvel. My son is an expert. He's 25, so he's been schooling me for the last couple of months," he said in a recent interview. "He's been teaching me all of that."

According to Ineson, the script for "The Fantastic Four" is impressive, and his son's knowledge of the Marvel universe has enhanced his appreciation for it. While details about Galactus's role remain confidential, the actor praised the film's script as "really cool as f**k." He gushed, "The more I've understood about the universe [and] the way it all fits together, I'm like 'Yeah, that's really cool as f**k.' "

The casting of Galactus follows the confirmation that The Silver Surfer will also appear in the movie, played by Julia Garner. Notably, it has been suggested that "The Fantastic Four" may take place in a different universe from the main Marvel Cinematic Universe.

"The Fantastic Four" cast also includes Pedro Pascal as Mister Fantastic, Vanessa Kirby as The Invisible Woman, Ebon Moss-Bachrach as The Thing, and Joseph Quinn as The Human Torch. Directed by Matt Shakman and written by Josh Friedman, the movie is scheduled to hit theaters on July 25, 2025.

In a separate interview, Moss-Bachrach talked about his preparation for the role. "I've been reading a lot of comics," he said. "They gave me this Marvel Unlimited thing, so I can just go on my iPad, and go to any comic book that Marvel's ever released."
