The New Fantastic Four Reboot Has a Cast

Fox's new Fantastic Four movie has its superheros pretty much picked out, according to Deadline. As rumored, Michael B. Jordan will allegedly play Johnny Storm the Human Torch. Kate Mara is rumored to join him as Invisible Woman Sue Storm*, with Miles Teller as Mr. Fantastic Reed Richards, and Jamie Bell as the Thing rounding out the cast. If you ask us, it would have made more sense and saved a lot of money to just hire a man made out of fire, an invisible woman, an elastic guy and some kind of rock creature but hey, what do we know? We're not casting directors.

* The post originally misidentified Sue Storm as Sue Smith, which makes us no better than the animals.
