It’s another comic book coming to the big screen (again) and we couldn’t be more excited. Miles Teller, Michael B. Jordan, Kate Mara and Jamie Bell will be the new ‘Fantastic Four,’ multiple outlets have confirmed.
Josh Trank will be directing a new reboot of Fantastic Four, and we’ve got to say that the young lineup is on fire! Miles Teller and Michael B. Jordan are reuniting for the film after killing it together in That Awkward Moment, and they will be joined by Kate Mara and Jamie Bell.
‘Fantastic Four’ Cast Revealed
Fox really likes this franchise, as it’s the second time it will be made into a movie in ten years. The Jessica Alba version of Fantastic Four was split into two films — one in 2005 and 2007. And now, they’re at it again.
The 1960s Marvel comic features Mr. Fantastic, The Thing, The Invisible Girl and the Human Torch who fight monsters, aliens, and of course Dr. Doom.
Michael, 27, has been in talks with the film for quite some time as he originally was to be cast as Johnny Storm, but will star as the Human Torch.
His friend, Miles is rumored to take on the role of Mr. Fantastic or Reed Richards, if he can clear up his schedule since his growing fame, The Hollywood Reporter said. He recently starred in Whiplash, which was a huge hit at Sundance and is starring in what is anticipated to be a huge blockbuster, The Spectacular Now.
Kate Mara will play Sue Storm or the Invisible Girl, while Jamie will play Ben Grimm or The Thing.
