Fantastic Four Cast Almost in Place


The cast haven’t quite signed on the dotted line yet but according to a report by Deadline, this is the team we can expect to see for the Fantastic Four reboot. From left to right we have Michael B. Jordan as Johnny Storm (Human Torch), Kate Mara as Susan Storm (Invisible Woman), Miles Teller as Reed Richards (Mr Fantastic) and Jamie Bell as Ben Grimm (The Thing).


The casting of Michael B. Jordan has been rumoured for months now and it was never a great surprise considering both he and director Josh Trank worked together on Chronicle. According to the report Jordan and Bell are the ones that look most solid right now.

Having Michael B. Jordan as the human torch is an excellent bit of casting. If you saw him flying around in Chronicle it won’t take too much of a stretch of the imagination to picture him covered in flames too. He also has that essential charisma the character of Johnny Storm needs. It might take time for some people to get the “blonde haired blue-eyed” image out of their heads but this choice is sure to pay off.

Jamie Bell as the Thing though is really unusual. Either there’s going to be some heavy make-up and workout sessions or Josh Trank is taking the character in a different direction. There is the possibility of his being a motion capture/voice recording job but we’ll have to wait and see.

The Fantastic Four reboot is due for release in June 2015, so yet another big blockbuster to add to the summer of 2015 roster.
