Michael B. Jordan Addresses Possibly Playing ‘Human Torch’ In FANTASTIC FOUR Reboot
Addressing the controversial response to his possible casting as Johnny Storm in Josh Trank's reboot of Marvel's First Family, hit the jump and check out what Chronicle star Michael B. Jordan says!
A tiresome debate ignited earlier this month when rising star Michael B. Jordan was revealed to be in early talks to re-team with Chronicle director Josh Trank for FOX's Fantastic Four reboot. Possibly playing the role of Johnny Storm, aka Human Torch, Jordan recently discussed the potential casting with USA Today and The Huffington Post. Revealing first and foremost that, "Nothing is real. Everyone knows we (he and Trank) are good friends," Michael does admit, "It's something that if it happened I would be ecstatic." Addressing his and the superhero's obvious racial difference, Jordan argues that, "Things change and time goes on, it's 2013 right now. I'm all about breaking barriers and changing stuff," says Jordan. "We've got a black president. Times have changed. The characteristics of the Human Torch are his name is Johnny Storm, he's charismatic, and he's a playboy. That's it. You know what I'm saying? That's all there is." Rest assured, Michael B. Jordan says he's received a lot of Twitter love and believes most are ready to embrace the possibility.
"I get a lot of support and a lot of love from comic-book geeks. I love it. If you go looking for negative things you're going to find it. You never go through a girl's phone. If you're looking for trouble, you're going to find it. But we'll see where this all goes." What do you think?
Anyhow, The Fantastic Four reboot is scheduled to film in Vancouver later this year under the working title Henry Street, and Josh Trank directs the film into theaters on March 6, 2015!
