After months of speculation we now have winners it seems. The long rumored Miles Teller, Kate Mara and Michael B. Jordan – along with the freshly linked Jamie Bell – are reportedly making deals to play the titular quartet of Marvel superheroes in the “Fantastic Four” reboot at 20th Century Fox.
Jordan (“Fruitvale Station,” “Chronicle”) is playing the Human Torch and has been linked to the project the longest. Mara (“House of Cards”) is said to have scored the role of Sue Storm aka Invisible Girl in an earlier round of screentests.
Teller (“The Spectacular Now,” “That Awkward Moment”) is slated to play Reed Richards, aka the stretchable Mr. Fantastic, but there’s still scheduling issues to be worked out.
Bell (“Jumper,” “King Kong”) is the surprise latecomer, taking on the role of Ben Grimm, aka The Thing, after initial tests with other actors failed to produce a satisfying choice.
The project is slated for release on June 19th 2015
