Reputed Hollywood scooper Daniel Richtman reacted on social media with respect to the casting of the Game Of Thrones actor in the upcoming chapter of Fantastic Four. His post on X mentioned-

“My one problem with this cast is Joseph Quinn. Not sold on him as Johnny.”

Another Marvel fan posted on X- 

“Johnny Storm is supposed to be a very attractive man, model-looking, playboy, ladies’ man, and womanizer whom a lot of women constantly droll over. It’s a very important part of his character. Nothing against Joseph Quinn but he doesn’t look the part at all.”

A few fans even pointed out that even Robert Downey Jr. was judged for his past when he was selected to play Iron Man. Now, almost after a decade of playing the character of Iron Man, it is next to impossible to imagine someone else in his shoes. So, it is better not to judge Joseph Quinn over his casting as Johnny Storm
