Sorry, Ioan Gruffudd, but it looks like somebody else is going to take over the title of Mr. Fantastic.
As seems to be the case with every franchise these days, Fantastic Four is getting the reboot treatment, and the casting rumors have begun for some of the lead roles.
The top two contenders for Mr. Fantastic are Adrien Brody and Jonathan “Crazy Eyes” Rhys Meyers. Both certainly seem like intriguing picks for the lead character, but perhaps Brody comes across as a more likable superhero than troubled Rhys Meyers. Guess we’ll see.
As far as the Invisible Woman role is concerned, two names currently being thrown around are Alice Eve and Amber Heard.
Eve recently quit X-Men: First Class, so we only hope she’ll stick to her word if she lands this role. Her competition, Amber Heard, was also up for a role in the new X-Men, but she lost out to Jennifer Lawrence. Maybe you’ll have better luck this time, Amber!
The only other name floating around at the moment is Kevin Pennington, for the Human Torch role. Pennington is known for his 4-episode run on 90210, and he also played an uncredited party stud in the 2009 comedy Miss March.
We wish you all the best of luck
but mostly Adrien Brody!
Are U on Team Brody or Team Crazy Eyes?
