The Fantastic Four reboot casts its new team
Fox has cast its new team for the forthcoming Fantastic Four reboot, with Kate Mara and Michael B. Jordan as siblings Sue and Johnny Storm.
It is reported that they will join Miles Teller and Jamie Bell as the eponymous heroes, with Teller playing Reed Richards and Bell as Ben Grimm/The Thing.
Jordan had been attached to the role of Johnny Storm/Human Torch for a while, but the idea of interracial siblings in a superhero film has already sparked a debate on social media.
Based onThe Ultimate Fantastic Four comic, the reboot will have a contemporary feel, with the characters as young men and women. It will be directed by Chronicle's Josh Trank and be co-produced by Gregory Goodman, Simon Kinberg and Matthew Vaughn.
The Fantastic Four has a scheduled release of 19th June 2015.
