October 10th, 2013 by bash 2 Comments

20th Century Fox is gearing up to start testing actors for their reboot of Marvel Comics’ Fantastic Four, according to Variety.

Among the names said to be in the running for three of the four leads (no word on Ben Grimm/The Thing role) are Kit Harington, Jack O’Connell and Miles Teller (Reed Richards); Saoirse Ronan, Kate Mara and Margot Robbie (Sue Storm); and Michael B. Jordon (Johnny Storm).

Josh Trank will direct the big screen reboot, which is currently set for release on March 6, 2015.

Hi all. I'm Bash and love anything and everything to do with Star Wars. Although I've watched hundreds of movies, read dozens of books and played numerous computer games from other genres and franchises since, nothing has come close to seeing George Lucas' epic for the very first time. I hope you all like the site and come back often.

    So they’re making everyone young? Didn’t the entire team have doctorates when they first started out? That’d put them in their 30s, at least. I’d say Alice Eve for Sue Storm, Iain Glen for Reed Richards, the wrestler Kane to play the Thing, and have Chris Evans come back as the Human Torch just to make filming cheaper on Avengers 4…just kidding. I’d probably say Cam Gigandet should play Johnny Storm this time.

    Do we really need a reboot of the fantastic 4 at all. I mean, they’re not all that anyway. Why don’t they do something else. There’s plenty of other marvel characters that would make a good film. Stop messing about and make Captain Britain. On second thoughts it would be terrible.
