The casting for the Fantastic Four reboot has been full of rumors, and apparently some truth. Over at The Wrap, they are reporting that Fox has picked their new “First Family” for the forthcoming reboot. Miles Teller, Michael B. Jordan, Kate Mara and Jamie Bell are the front-runners for Fox.
Miles Teller is now in negotiations to play Reed Richards (aka Mr. Fantastic), Michael B. Jordan, who has been long rumored to be picked for the Human Torch, Kate Mara has been offered Sue Storm, and Jamie Bell is in negotiations to play Ben Grimm, aka The Thing. From what I’m reading, this still isn’t a 100%, but very close. Meaning this could be the new Fantastic Four, or someone might back out.
Also, since there are no details on the movie yet, it is unclear how they will handle the Johnny Storm (Human Torch) and Se Storm sibling relationship. If one will be adopted, or they share one parent. What do you think of these casting choices? Definitely a younger Fantastic Four than the earlier films. (Source: The Wrap)
