Slott even shared a link to where you can listen to some of Murray’s works in that series, and you can even check that tweet out below.

This is not exactly the first time that Murray’s Marvel past has found its way to Twitter. Last February, Ant man director Peyton Reed also shared the interesting treat. At Groundhog Day 2021, Reed shared an autographed photo of Murray from the 1993 film Groundhog Day, which Murray had not signed with his name but with “Flame On! The Human Torch”. Reed explained in the caption how Murray had played the character in a radio program before his Saturday Night Live break through.
The Fantastic Four Radio Show was a short 13-episode audio program released in 1975 and was narrated by Stan Lee. In addition to Murray, the series starred Bob Maxwell as Reed Richards, Cynthia Adler as Sue Storm, Jim Pappas as Ben Grimm and Jerry Terheyden as Doctor Doom. The series also featured a number of other Marvel characters, including Ant-Man, Namor, Nick Fury and more. Each episode of the series took on a question of early Fantastic four cartoon by Lee and Jack Kirby almost verbatim.
As for Murray’s next Marvel role, the actor revealed earlier this month during a performance on Eli Manning Show that he will play “a bad guy” in Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania, though he did not reveal exactly what character he would play. Fans will have to wait until 2023 for that.
