clobberin' casting time!
Hold on to your floppy hats, comic book fans, because this news is SUPER!
Fox just brought in some of this generation's finest young actors to screen test for the eagerly-awaited Fantastic Four reboot! Woo hoo!
Earlier we told you that Chronicle's Josh Trank will direct and we now know that film's star, up-and-comer Michael B. Jordan, will play the Human Torch, but that leaves three heroes left to cast!!!
So who did the studio bring in for screen tests?
Believe it or not, many of our favorites young faces!!!
On Tuesday Kate Mara & Emmy Rossum each auditioned for the Invisible Woman, and we imagine both would enjoy the challenge of filling Jessica Alba's huge(ly invisible) shoes.
Apparently Zac Efron's That Awkward Moment co-star Miles Teller tested recently to play the super-group's super-stretchy leader, Mr. Fantastic.
As for The Thing? Well, some say the part might go to an actor named Christian Cook. Who? Hmm, we wonder whether those sources actually meant Dianna Argon's ex-boyfriend Christian Cooke? That dude is exactly the type rock-hard hunk this flick needs!
Dr. Doom, meanwhile, is assumed to be this film's villain though that role hasn't yet been cast. Rumor has it Fox is searching for a big name and might even consider a female for the part!
Victoria von Doom? Oooh, we love it!!!
Do U think the Fantastic Four remake can be as successful as Marvel's other films?
