    Joseph Quinn Lauds Chris Evans As Human Torch In ‘Fantastic Four’, Explains Why He Said Yes To The Role Despite Having “Big Boots” To Fill 

    The upcoming Marvel Cinematic Universe reboot of ‘Fantastic Four’ has found its Human Torch in rising star Joseph Quinn. Fresh off his scene-stealing role as Eddie Munson in Stranger Things,’ Quinn is now facing the challenge of following in the footsteps of Chris Evans.

    Evan portrayed Johnny Storm in the 2005 and 2007 ‘Fantastic Four’ films. While Chris is not known for his role as the human torch, a lot of people love his portrayal. So, Joseph acknowledging Chris’ legendary portrayal showcases his humility.

    In a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly, Quinn expressed his admiration for Evans’ take on the Human Torch. “I remember really enjoying Chris Evans’s performance as Johnny in the previous films,” he admitted. However, Quinn is determined to make the role his own. “No,” he said, “I mean, you’re going to make it your own. It’s big boots [to fill].” 

    This sentiment reflects the pressure and excitement that often comes with reprising a beloved character. Evans brought a charm and arrogance to Johnny Storm that resonated with fans. Living up to that while bringing something fresh to the table is no small feat. Additionally, Quinn seems to understand this challenge and is approaching it with a healthy mix of respect and ambition.

    While details about the upcoming ‘Fantastic Four’ film are still under wraps, Quinn’s casting has sparked a lot of buzz. Fans are curious to see how he will portray the hot-headed yet loveable Johnny Storm. This casting choice also injects a new energy into the franchise. Evans’ portrayal, while enjoyable, belonged to a different era of superhero films.

    The MCU has evolved significantly since then, and Quinn’s casting suggests a fresh take on the characters. It’ll be interesting to see how he interacts with the rest of the team, particularly Sue Storm, Johnny’s fiery sister who is yet to be cast. Additionally, he has the potential to not only honor Chris Evans’ legacy but also set the screen ablaze with his own unique interpretation of the character.
