One creative MCU fan brings Pedro Pascal’s Reed Richards to life with a stunning cosplay based on The Fantastic Four Valentine’s Day concept costume. On Valentine’s Day 2024, the first official image from Matt Shakman’s upcoming The Fantastic Four was unveiled, showing a first peek at the costumes that the MCU’s Fantastic Four cast might wear in the 2025 movie. With a tinge of 1960s-era vintage style, the Fantastic Four’s blue-and-white suits give a nod to the team’s mid-century origins.


It didn’t take long for MCU fans to design the Fantastic Four’s concept costumes in real life. On Tumblr, cosplayer coolbeansph reveals his faithful take on Mr. Fantastic’s possible MCU costume, complete with grooves on the turtleneck sweater and a subtle buckle on the left side of the belt. See the images below:

The real-life costume accurately represents the Fantastic Four concept suit’s simplicity, standing out over all previous Fantastic Four movie suits. It sports a light blue color on the sweater and pants, a pair of white boots, a white belt, and a minimalistic logo placed right in the middle of the chest. Also unlike previous Fantastic Four movie suits, Reed Richards’ MCU costume lacks gloves.



Marvel’s The Fantastic Four Movie Costumes Inspiration Explained

As teased by the movie’s first official MCU image, The Fantastic Four will likely take place in the 1960s. Elements like Ben Grimm’s astronaut photo and the 1963 TIME magazine he’s reading suggest that the Fantastic Four will have their MCU origin story set around that year. Considering that setting, Mr. Fantastic’s wool sweater seems like a fitting product of its time, as opposed to the highly detailed spandex, fabric, leather, or nanotech metal that most MCU superheroes traditionally wear in modern times. Likewise, Sue Storm’s white boots resemble the famous go-go boots popularized in the mid-1960s.


The Fantastic Four’s MCU suits aren’t only tied to the 1960s due to the movie’s plot. The costumes also seem to pay homage to the team’s original comic book costumes from their first appearances, which took place in the same era. The Fantastic Four wore very simple, loose-fitting suits for around fifteen years since their 1961 introduction, after which the mid-1970s and 1980s brought with them a form-fitting, spandex-like material and a variety of more detailed designs.

Ebon Moss-Bachrach has revealed more about his upcoming MCU debut, proving that 2015’s Fantastic Four reboot at least got Ben Grimm’s Thing right.

The blue-and-white color scheme seen in The Fantastic Four‘s first image draws inspiration from the team’s 1983 suit redesign. When the heroes visit the Negative Zone in Fantastic Four #256, the black parts of their suits flip colors, and the team decides to keep the white collars, gloves, boots, and belts in subsequent redesigns. The MCU’s The Fantastic Four may not provide the same explanation for this color scheme, but it could feature the Negative Zone in some capacity, possibly as the explanation for the Fantastic Four’s absence in the MCU’s chronological timeline since their first team-up in the 1960s.
