Kate, Michael, Miles and Jamie: Meet The 'Fantastic Four' Reboot Cast

It’s been over two months since Thor: The Dark World came out, which means that we’re itching for some superhero news to tide us over! Luckily, rumors are flying around that the cast for the 2015 movie The Fantastic Four reboot, has finally been picked. For those who aren’t already Fantastic Four fans, this bunch of superheroes/astronauts gained their powers after they were exposed to cosmic rays whilst hanging out in outer space. You know, that old chestnut.

Let’s take a look at the potential The Fantastic Four reboot cast.

Johnny Storm/The Human Torch

27 year old Michael B. Jordan has been picked for the coveted role of Johnny Storm, or as he’s more commonly known: The Human Torch. Michael has starred alongside Keanu Reeves in the 2001 movie Hardball as well as having a recurring role in the first season of The Wire. More recently Michael has starred in Red Tails which was produced by Star Wars director, George Lucas, and the critically acclaimed Fruitvale Station. He’s already well prepped for his role as the fiery superhero, having starred in the 2012 superhero movie Chronicle.

Sue Storm/Invisible Woman

Playing Marvel’s first ever superheroine, Invisible Woman, is Kate Mara. Kate is the older sister of Hollywood starlet, Rooney Mara, who won the role of Lisbeth Salander in the English speaking version of The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo. Not to be out shined by her little sister, Kate has starred in House of Cards, 24 and Oscar winning flick, Brokeback Mountain.

Reid Richards/Mister Fantastic

Super stretchy Mister Fantastic will be played by up-and-coming star, Miles Teller. Miles hasn’t starred in quite as many flicks as his other cast members, but he did win critical acclaim, as well as a couple of award nominations, for his role as Jason in Rabbit Hole back in 2010.

Ben Grimm/The Thing

Jamie Bell playing The Thing is something we really are very excited to see! Jamie first made a name for himself playing ballet loving miner’s son, Billy, in 2000’s Billy Elliot and The Thing couldn’t be a character further removed! Jamie’s childhood success didn’t spur him into a meltdown, as with some other child stars, and he went on to appear in huge blockbusters, King Kong and The Adventures of Tintin. Jamie is married to Evan Rachel Wood, who gave birth to their first child together back in July 2013.

Absolutely terrible. Terrible. Terrible. I wouldn't see this movie, even if Kate Mara asked me there as her date.

Looks more like a MTV PC cast than a Real Marvel Movie, and I thought Batman Vs Superman casting was a joke, This is going to Bomb big time at the Box Office. You would think by now The Studio's would not want to test The Comic Book Fans out there, They are a very touchy about they're Beloved Comics.
