Actress Jodie Comer is a favorite of Disney executives to bring one of the most celebrated heroines of Marvel Comics to life. Awarded for her work as the assassin protagonist of the series ‘Killing Eve’, the 29-year-old celebrity is pointed out by the international press as the future interpreter of the Invisible Woman in the Fantastic Four movie.
