UPDATE: Kate Mara Doesn't Know If She's 'Sue Storm' In THE FANTASTIC FOUR

Less than 24 hours after Hollywood trades revealed that Kate Mara was in final talks to play Sue Storm, MTV spoke with the actress about The Fantastic Four and Michael B. Jordan playing her brother.

"According to Twitter, I am," said Kate Mara when MTV asked if she is really playing Sue Storm, aka Invisible Woman, in Fox's Fantastic Four reboot. "I literally have not heard a thing, which is alarming," Mara told MTV News. "Last night in bed, I was scrolling through movie news. I was like, 'What? I got the part?' I still haven't heard. I want LA to wake up so that I can make some phone calls and figure this out." When asked to clarify, Mara responded: "I literally don't know 100 percent that I have that part," she said. "I don't like to celebrate before something's real because how embarrassing would that be? I hope so." Regardless of the status of her casting, the actress says she's really excited about the project and that she'll have to get up to speed on the comics. She also praises Josh Trank's directorship on Chronicle. When asked about the controversy surrounding actor Michael B. Jordan playing Sue Storm's brother, Johnny aka Human Torch, Mara said: "Again, I credit Josh Trank for that because... he thinks outside the box. I don't actually know whose idea that was, but it just makes me trust that he's going to make an awesome movie. Regardless of myself, I'm such a massive fan of all those guys." What do you think?






Directed by Josh Trank from a screenplay polished recently by Simon Kinberg, The Fantastic Four is scheduled to commence principal photography this summer, and it'll hit theaters June 19, 2015!

They always say they've never heard of anything then...BOOOM. They are cast.
Nick56 - 2/20/2014, 11:34 AM
Hopefully she's in it because Kate Mara as Sue is perfect casting. The rest of the cast ill have to wait and see what they look like as their respective characters before I make judgement. But I still have confidence in the movie, don't really see why everyone is bitching about it already...

Saoirse Ronan would have been much better. She looks MORE the part AND can act!
TheRealDorkKnight - 2/20/2014, 11:53 AM

Epic failure shitstorm coming.

Fox FF = disaster
TheRealDorkKnight - 2/20/2014, 11:55 AM
It's not racist saying that brother and sister should be the same race. They are just shoehorning in a racial demographic in some pathetic attempt to get other nationalities to go see this garbage
MrMartinMarvel - 2/20/2014, 11:56 AM
*Wakes up* What's going on?! Oh it's just another Foxtastic Four article. *Falls back to sleep*
NightWatcher - 2/20/2014, 11:57 AM

Holmes - 2/20/2014, 11:59 AM
@Nick why exactly is she perfect casting? Im not trying to start anything im just curious bc i think ur the first person who sees anything good coming from this movie
Nomis - 2/20/2014, 12:00 PM
I actually think this is the ONLY casting they got right for this movie so far!
KrazyForKomix - 2/20/2014, 12:02 PM
I want to know why no one though to cast Kal Penn as Reed Richards. He would have been perfect.

WE...

DON'T...

CAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAARE!!!!!!!
MexicanSuperman - 2/20/2014, 12:03 PM
@TheRealDorkKnight, Johnny and Sue can still be half-siblings. They can have the same father but different mother. I have cousins that are mixed with black and Hispanic and have siblings who are all black or all Hispanic. Also one reason they probably picked Jordan for the role is because of his performance he gave in his audition was great and not because he was black.

"Hey Kate, are you Invisible Womah?"

Kate: "I dunno... whatevs"

"GREAT! =D"
EagleEye21 - 2/20/2014, 12:06 PM
I know I'm gonna get hated for this, but I actually enjoyed the first two fantastic four movies, and I also thought rise of the silver surfer was the best out of the two
Mike89 - 2/20/2014, 12:06 PM
Am i missing something. There was another article confirming her as Sue Storm now she denies it.

Come on FOX get your heads out of your ass.
MrEko - 2/20/2014, 12:06 PM


haters gonna hate *tongue-firmly-in-cheek*

Bring on the Ultimate Fantastic Four.
Holmes - 2/20/2014, 12:07 PM
This whole situation is F.U.B.A.R and we wouldnt be here if This studio knew how to make [frick]ing movies
THEDARKKNIGHT1939 - 2/20/2014, 12:07 PM
I feel bad for her. This movie is going to blow.
InfiniteMonkey - 2/20/2014, 12:08 PM
Now gents, feel free to start posting scantily clad pics of Kate.
I'll just go fetch another beer.
MexicanSuperman - 2/20/2014, 12:08 PM
@EagleEye21, I thought they were alright. Good movies for kids.
dethpillow - 2/20/2014, 12:10 PM
cool, i think that's a good casting.

just watched some interviews to get a feel for her and I like it.
dethpillow - 2/20/2014, 12:14 PM
@Mike89 - what article said that? here?
nowtheresaBATman - 2/20/2014, 12:15 PM
Invisible?? NAKED will do just FINE.
ComicsBornAndBred - 2/20/2014, 12:16 PM
She's gorgeous. The sister of the girl with te dragon tattoo...Rooney Mara. Family owns both Steeles and giants. A billion dollars and beauty wow. She'll kill as Sue Storm. Talented actress
JossWeedOnMe - 2/20/2014, 12:19 PM
Is she going to use boot Polish as makeup
CherryBomb - 2/20/2014, 12:19 PM

Yeah, Kate is a really good choice for Sue, she can definitely give the intelligence and beauty that embodies Sue.
Interestein - 2/20/2014, 12:20 PM
Honestly, this film shouldn't be getting all this hate. I love 3/4 of the cast so far (excluding Teller as Richards), the director is phenomenal, Matthew [frick]ing Vaughn is producing, and Kinberg is a pretty good writer.

I say: BRING IT ON!
JossWeedOnMe - 2/20/2014, 12:21 PM
FF = fecking fail
Redmest - 2/20/2014, 12:22 PM
Yea, this movie? no thanks.
