How fantastic is the rebooted 'Fantastic Four' cast?


It's looking like "Fantastic Four" will join the group of superhero movies that have been rebooted with an entirely new cast.

E! reports the four actors moving into final negotiations for the movie are Michael B. Jordan, Kate Mara, Miles Teller and Jamie Bell.

Deadline Hollywood reports the expected lineup is Jordan as the Human Torch, Teller as Mr. Fantastic, Mara as the Invisible Woman and Bell as the Thing.

Fox's first attempt at the "Fantastic Four" was in 2005 with Ioan Gruffudd and Jessica Alba leading the cast. (Via "Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer" / 20th Century Fox

Reactions to the cast have been mixed, but the biggest problem fans seem to have with the choice of actors is how young they are.

One Twitter user said the actors look "like they belong in a spin-off of One Tree Hill."

But the cast has others excited for the movie's release.  Many are buzzing about Kate Mara, who gained popularity recently from her role in Netflix's "House of Cards." (Via Twitter / @bexter2001,@TylerSchmieder@Lumetian@IAmTimBakerNetflix)

The movie has been in development since 2009 and is scheduled for release in June of next year.
