Jordan plays Johnny Storm/Human Torch in the reboot of the Marvel superhero franchise.
Fantastic Four star Michael B. Jordan has spoken out against the internet trolls who have objected to his casting as Johnny Storm aka Human Torch in the upcoming superhero reboot. In an essay published in Entertainment Weekly Jordan gave a clear message to those who object to a black actor being cast in the role.
Michael B. Jordan as The Human Torch.
“You’re not supposed to go on the Internet when you’re cast as a superhero,” Jordan began. “But after taking on Johnny Storm in Fantastic Four—a character originally written with blond hair and blue eyes—I wanted to check the pulse out there.
After years of work and millions of dollars in funding, Dr. Storm has come up with nothing to show for all his work into interdimensional travel. That is, until the arrival of Reed Richards (Miles Teller), who demonstrates such an understanding of the science they are studying, that the project is finished shortly afterwards. Now Reed, Storm's children Susan (Kate Mara) and Johnny (Michael B. Jordan) and Ben Grimm (Jamie Bell) are sent to test the machine. But something goes wrong - having successfully travelled to another dimension, the four children are changed forever, in ways they never could have imagined.

If you only watch one video this week, make it this one. True Detective fans, this is required viewing.
Ellen Page and Kate Mara are two of Hollywood’s favourite sweethearts, but we love them even more (if that’s even possible) after their True Detective parody for Funny or Die. Possibly inspired by the news from earlier this week that Vince Vaughn and Collin Farrell will be joining the HBO hit, the starlets filmed their own take on the show. It’s called Tiny Detectives and it’s exactly what it sounds like.
If Ellen Page doesn't star in True Detective, HBO should definitely consider a spinoff, based on Tiny Detective.
The premise: since people were unhappy with the new True Detective cast, HBO have decided to re-cast. But with Page at 5’1’’ and Mara not exactly towering at 5’2’’, their characters have had to take a very… creative approach to detective work. For one, they can’t see the evidence half the time. Also, they sometimes have to sit on magazines to see over the dashboard of their cop car. And I won’t spoil the rest, but you won’t make it past the 1:10 mark without laughing, that’s for sure. Basically, go watch the video right now. You know, just in case you needed a reminder of why these two are awesome. Or if you have an afternoon or so, you could just dive straight into a pit of three-minute comedy videos. No judgement.
Kate Mara and Ellen Page send up 'True Detective' as 'Tiny Detectives' in a Funny or Die sketch.

From 'Whiplash' to 'The Fantastic Four', we're looking forward to seeing more of Miles Teller.
Miles Teller first gained our attention as hedonistic ladies man Sutter in the 2013 rom-com 'The Spectacular Now', before going on to another comedy love story 'That Awkward Moment' earlier this year. Now, Miles Teller is exploring a range of projects over the coming months.
He was convincing as a rom-com fixture until he played the nasty piece of work Peter in 'Divergent', so now we're pretty sure his versatility renders him unpredictable. One look at his upcoming movie projects and you'd never think they were all starring the same guy.
