It's seemingly taken forever and bogged with rumors and script rewrites but we finally have a Fantastic Four cast. Miles Teller will play Reed Richards, the genius scientist who leads the Four and is known for his stretching powers. Kate Mara will play Sue Storm, also known as the Invisible Woman which will add both the sexuality Fox probably wants with the character but a bit of snark she seemingly lacked when Jessica Alba played her. Jamie Bell well be the rock monster known as The Thing. And Michael B. Jordan will of course, as was previously known, be Johnny Storm.
Josh Trank is set to direct this reboot which, if it isn't obvious by the age of the actors, will focus on the characters when they were much younger. It isn't a surprise since the few reboots of comic book films have tried to steer to a alternative telling of the tale in hopes of intriguing more viewers.
I personally like the casting especially Mara, who is really the only actor I've seen a lot of. This franchise isn't a marquee one like Spider-Man or The Avengers and with two black eyes from a few years back it's one that could use a break as much as a reboot. But, for now, this looks like all the pieces are in place for June 19th, 2015.
