Umm, this is NOT what we were expecting from TLC.
Check out the official statement (below)!

With Marvel superheroes dominating at the box office lately, the Fantastic Four franchise reboot has been watched very carefully!
The charming, seksi Michael B. Jordan has been all but confirmed as The Human Torch for weeks, but who will play the other three?
One of the big questions on fans' minds was how race would be addressed casting Michael's sister The Invisible Woman. Well, that question is still up in the air as House Of Cards star Kate Mara has snagged the part!
(Maybe they won't have to address it. She is invisible after all…)
Playing the flexible Mr. Fantastic will be Michael's That Awkward Moment costar Miles Teller!
He's a little young to play the world's smartest super scientist, but maybe they're thinking less professor emeritus and more wunderkind.
Maybe the strangest casting is slim hottie Jamie Bell playing the Ben Grimm, the huge rocky Thing.
But looks may not be important as the character might need to be CG anyway. And Jamie does have animation voice acting experience in the hit Tintin movie.
Some bold choices here, but all actors we love. We have to say, we're excited to see what new directions the movie goes in. What do U think?
