Cast for “The Fantastic Four” in place

Variety reports that the cast of the 2015 Fantastic Four reboot is largely in place. (Schedules need to be sorted out.) They are looking at Miles Teller for Mr. Fantastic, Kate Mara as the Invisible Woman, Jamie Bell as the Thing and Michael B. Jordan as the Human Torch. I’m not familiar with any of their work, so I won’t comment on that aspect. The only concern I have is that it no longer appears that Sue and Johnny are siblings. I question how the relationship dynamics will play out, and if they will feel like the Fantastic Four to me. Michael B. Jordan was the first person cast in the role, so I would have expected them to cast Sue Storm to match.

    Kate Mara is great in anything I’ve seen her in, I’m OK with her as Sue Storm. Jamie Bell is alright though I’m not sure he’s best for that role.

    As for the others, I’ll give them a shot. Given the franchise’s film history it’s not like they can do much worse.

    Sue and Johnny could be, say, adopted siblings. I agree that they should be brother and sister, because it has been a part of the relationship dynamics.

    On another note, that’s a lightweight Ben. I wonder if we’ll see a CGI Thing.

    Jamie Bell is a brilliant actor, but is small and an odd choice for Thing.
