In a new episode of The Hot Mic podcast, we got to know about the popular Stranger Things sensation who will be joining this venture with MCU. According to the podcast hosts, Joseph Quinn along with Vanessa Kirby will be entering the multiverse as Johnny Storm and Sue Storm, respectively. The 29-year-old actor, popularly known for his character Eddie Munson, has got the fans tapping their feet as they can’t help but wonder how this idiosyncratic leader of Hellfire Club is going to add to the legacy of Marvel.

Notably, there have been other casting updates as well, which are creating a buzz on Twitter. Some false rumors have also been circulating over the internet about the potential casting for the movie. The Boys’ Jack Quaid was associated with Fantastic Four, who later put up a tweet to address the rumors and confirmed that he is “Not playing” any roles in the movie. But with Quinn’s casting confirmed, casting rumors may become a thing of the past for this project.

As new updates for the cast, including Ebon Moss and even the popular Spanish actor and director Antonio Banderas, are circulating, it is safe to say that we are getting closer to knowing the actual hires for the movie. Even though we don’t have official updates from Marvel, it would be interesting to see these characters ace their roles, especially Quinn. There are many reasons why Quinn can be a perfect casting choice for Johnny Storm and will be a treat for all Marvel fanatics.

 But one major reason is how his stunning performance in Stranger Things still hooks fans after over a year since the release.

Joseph Quinn’s Eddie Munson and Upside Down concert remains a fan-favorite 

Quinn became an internet sensation as soon as the 4th season of Stranger Things aired. His rising to prominence after his stint in the sci-fi show could be one of the biggest reasons behind his securing a place in the MCU world. Eddie Munson, played by Quinn, was truly a breath of fresh air in season 4 and probably stood out the most among all the newly introduced characters.

After the release of the season, fans flooded social media with memes and edits to pay tribute to this character. It is very rare to have such an impact on fans with just a few episodes, but Eddie did it!

Even though fans might not see him in the upcoming season, he will always be a memorable character of Stranger Things, all thanks to Quinn’s exceptional talent as an actor. Given his track record, he will likely have a similar impact as Johnny Storm.
