The Fantstic Four reboot is a few months away and although many liberties have been taken for the upcoming film, we now have four new reasons to be excited.
Josh Trank, the director of the upcoming blockbuster, and writer/producer Simon Hinberg have provided us four films looking into the origins behind the characters as well as the semi-controversial choice of actors/actresses that will play them. Michael B. Jordan for example, who worked with Trank previously in his 2012 directorial debut Chronicle “epitomizes” his Fantastic Four character “Johnny Storm” according to the director.
Controversy erupted last year upon the announcement Johnny Storm AKA “The Human Torch” who historically was “The Invisible Woman” AKA Sue Storm’s blonde haired, blue eyed brother in the comic book, would be play by Jordan who’s African American. Trank however stands firm by his creative alteration in the videos, and gives us some insight about the rest of his lead actors, Jamie Bell (Ben Grimm/ “The Thing”), Kate Mara (Sue Storm/”The Invisible Woman”) and Miles Teller (Reed Richards/ “Mister Fantastic”).
Fantastic Four hits theaters August 7, 2015. Enjoy the videos above and below.
