FANTASTIC FOUR Reboot Cast Chosen


Director Josh Trank has chosen the quartet of actors who will play the eponymous superhero team for his upcoming reboot of Twentieth Century Fox’s Fantastic Four comic book adaptation franchise.

According to the Wrap, Miles Teller, Michael B. Jordan, Kate Mara and Jamie Bell will be filling in the roles of Reed Richards, Johnny Storm, Sue Storm and Ben Grimm otherwise known as Mr Fantastic, The Human Torch, The Invisible Girl and The Thing. The studio is currently in negotiations with all for actors’ reps.

Jordan’s name doesn’t surprise me much, as he has been mooted as being in contention for his role for about a year now. More recently Teller and Mara were mentioned as being on the studio’s shortlist for their characters.

Personally, the cast strikes me as looking a bit young, even though three of them are 27 with Mara being 30. But their younger looks do feed into the rather awful plot synopsis that surfaced that Fox’s lawyers don’t like us talking about, even though Trank has said that it was fake.

The film is set for a release on June 19, 2015.

I’m ready for the ‘storm’ of “I’m not a racist but …” type of comments to start flying from fandom.

Why are they re-doing the Fantastic Four anyway? That’s just dumb! LOL

Oh that “I’m not a racist” talk started back when Jordan was first rumored for the role last year. It’s been flying for a while.

But how about this: I’m not a body shamer, but Jamie Bell is way to scrawny to play Ben Grimm.
