THE FANTASTIC FOUR CASTING – Meet the new cast of The Fantastic Four! The upcoming reboot has finally selected the members for the Marvel superhero team: Miles Teller as Reed Richards (Mr. Fantastic), Kate Mara as Sue Storm (The Invisible Woman), Michael B. Jordan as Johnny Storm (Human Torch), and Jamie Bell as Ben Grimm (The Thing).
The previous Fantastic Four team consisted of Ioan Gruffudd, Jessica Alba, Chris Evans, and Michael Chiklis.
With this fresh cast comes a set of new questions, like if Sue and Johnny are siblings, why are they of different ethnicities? Isn’t Ben Grimm supposed to be a bigger guy? Isn’t Sue supposed to be significantly younger than Reed? Nevertheless, we’ve seen the great work these young stars have done, so we should expect the movie to blow us away.
The Fantastic Four is directed by Josh Trank.
PLOT: A reboot of the Marvel property centered on four astronauts who gain superpowers after cosmic radiation exposure.
