Well this cast sounds nothing less then marvelous!
Michael B. Jordan, Miles Teller, Kate Mara, and Jamie Bell have found themselves in the final steps of becoming the new stars of Fantastic Four reboot, according to several sources. While Jordan, 27, has been attached to the role of Johnny Storm/The Human Torch for quite some time, Teller, 27, and Mara, 30, won the parts of Dr. Reed Richards/Mr. Fantastic and Sue Storm/Invisible Girl back in November. But the surprise casting of Bell, 27, has been offered the role of Ben Grimm/The Thing to close out the faces of Fox‘s second installment of Fantastic Four.
The first installment consisted of two hit movies that were released back in 2005 and 2007. Chris Evans, Jessica Alba, Ioan Gruddfudd, and Michael Chiklis starred as the Marvel Comics heroes.
In 2013, Evans, who has moved on to being Captain America, told Spreecast that starring in Fantastic Four was his favorite movies to shoot. “It was one of the first times I had done a movie on that scale, so there were a lot of new things I was learning. I was learning so much just about big budget movies and special effects. I got to be a superhero, which was fun. Cast was great. It was just the first time it felt like a real big production. It kind of felt like summer camp. It was just a lot of fun. I loved playing that character.”
And Alba couldn’t have agreed more saying, “It was so fun to play a superhero. Who doesn’t want to go save the world,” during an interview with Larry King back in 2012.
