In an interview with Just Jared Miles Teller confirms a lot of what us at CBM have been speculating for a while. What is interesting is how easily he had gotten the role for the film, and that FOX had been on the fence about greenlighting the film until the final cast had been confirmed. Read the transcript of the interview below:



JJ: There’s a lot of hype over The Fantastic Four. What was that audition like?

Miles Teller: Yeah, I went in for a test as they call it, and I read with Mike (Michael B Jordan) and Kate (Mara) and (director Josh) Trank was there. We just kind of put it down in front of the studio and the studio gave it a thumbs up. I showed ‘em my abilities to stretch and shape shift, they were very impressed by that. 

JJ: Did you audition specifically for Mr. Fantastic or did you audition for another role?

Miles Teller: Yeah. Mike had the Human Torch locked up for a while. He didn’t say anything about it, because the movie wasn’t a hundred percent a go and all that stuff. That was really the only part. I could have played The Thing but, then I’m covered in rocks. I don’t want to cover up my face, you know?

JJ: Are you excited to work with Mike again?

Miles Teller: Yeah Mike’s great. We’re going to be down in Baton Rouge, for like five months. I think we’re going to have a good time. 

Sound off below on what you think. Were you surprised at how easily he had gotten the role? From one test screening?

And here come the people saying "Here come the Fox haters in 3, 2, 1!"
GuardianAngel - 3/21/2014, 10:45 PM
Does anybody really give a shit about The Fantastic Four?
GuardianAngel - 3/21/2014, 10:46 PM
I mean the characters in general, not the movie.
LordMushu - 3/21/2014, 10:46 PM
Stupid.
l0rdleg0las - 3/21/2014, 10:47 PM
I want to know whose dick Trank sucked to get full authority on this pending train wreck.
CaptainAmerica - 3/21/2014, 10:48 PM
Hopefully Fox goes the "explorers" route. Would love for the team to go on missions in the Negative Zone or outer space.
CaptainAmerica - 3/21/2014, 10:49 PM
And it's funny that Fox could probably do a Civil War film before Marvel does. I hope they do just to piss off Marvel and to get them back for using Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver.
TheGambitFreakIsBatmanOfCBM - 3/21/2014, 10:52 PM
Won't even watch the trailer.
CaptainAmerica - 3/21/2014, 10:54 PM
You'll be there midnight just like all the other whiny Marvel fangirls.
WombRaider - 3/21/2014, 10:54 PM
Even if this movie sounded good and was faithful. I still hate the miles teller casting. He has a face like fat arse cheeks being pushed together.
MecoBoy - 3/21/2014, 10:55 PM
the new mr fantastic!

CaptainAmerica - 3/21/2014, 10:56 PM
Good job Mecoboy! Did you come up with that all by yourself? Clever girl.
MecoBoy - 3/21/2014, 10:57 PM
Why you mad? lol
MecoBoy - 3/21/2014, 10:59 PM
You called me girl?!?!?

I'm not. That was brilliant! Must've taken you a lot of brain power to come up with that one.
Kurne - 3/21/2014, 11:00 PM
@CaptainAmerica

Yeah, just like you and all those whiny people calling out other whiny people were spotted seeing Iron Shit 2, Thor: The Fun World and Iron Shit 3.

He will kill it watch
superotherside - 3/21/2014, 11:01 PM
Fantastic, now we get a new Foxy For with the new Fox-men!

After all the other FF movies were almost perfect, nothing could go wrong with this one!

;P
CaptainAmerica - 3/21/2014, 11:02 PM
I loved Thor 2!!!!
Kurne - 3/21/2014, 11:03 PM
Miles is Miles.

I wanna hear more from Kate Mara.

And where is Jamie Bell?
BruceLeroy - 3/21/2014, 11:04 PM
@Kurne
Marvels mediocre films don't even touch some of the abominations Fox has put out. Please don't go that route.
Kurne - 3/21/2014, 11:07 PM
Can only assume the FF will be set in the First Class timeline. Fresh start.

However, little things like the small mention of Franklin Richards in X2 have me wondering what the FF are up to in the original timeline...
Starfox - 3/21/2014, 11:13 PM
Don't get us started with Iron Man 3 on this thread. That is Marvel's Green Lantern.
Starfox - 3/21/2014, 11:16 PM
This film will be good. just wait n see. It looks like they're trying to do something new and fresh so it just might surprise us.
AsgardianHobo - 3/21/2014, 11:23 PM
did you really just compare IM3 to the GL movie?



Kate Mara is seriously hot, and she has some acting skills. Hoping for the best after seeing her in House of Cards, but this role will be quite different.
Reasonnnn - 3/21/2014, 11:26 PM
All of these actors are GOOD actors, especially Miles Teller (e.g. Rabbit Hole, The Spectacular Now, Whiplash) and is good in sub-par/mediocre films (Footloose, That Awkward Moment, and probably Divergent)
JerBear - 3/21/2014, 11:27 PM
Josh Trank didn't even try with the casting in this. He would have cast Michael B. Jordan even if he was making a Lord of the Rings movie. The whole cast for this movie feels like an attempt to deviate as much as possible from the source material.
JoJo1982 - 3/21/2014, 11:28 PM
Oh no

20 pages coming soon
Jtneagle - 3/21/2014, 11:32 PM
He probably won't even change his accent. Country Mr. Fantastic, African American Human Torch, what's next? -__- Not looking forward to this reboot
Starfox - 3/21/2014, 11:33 PM
AsgardianHobo I only mean in reference to how it went over with the fans. Fans had a similar response to IM3. Don't get me wrong though. Iron Man 3 is a much better film than Green Lantern lol.
JerBear - 3/21/2014, 11:34 PM
Josh Trank: Yes! I got the gig! Now... Which role should I cast my buddy Michael B. Jordan in?
AsgardianHobo - 3/21/2014, 11:36 PM
@starfox

I guess hardcore fans, but a movie doesn't get to #5 of all time without multiple repeat viewings from the GA. No apologies needed dude!
ALmazing - 3/21/2014, 11:42 PM
"Don't get us started with Iron Man 3 on this thread. That is Marvel's Green Lantern."

Marvel's Green LanternS have all come from Fox.
-DD
-Elektra
-FF1 and 2
-X3
-x-men origins wolverine
Shroombeast - 3/21/2014, 11:46 PM
[frick] Teller and [frick] Trank. Ugh. I'm desperate for this movie not to get made. I'm afraid of what it'll do to the Fantastic Four and the genre at large if it does reach theaters.

Besides, these characters belong in the MCU, not the damned Mutant-verse. They'd even fit in Sony's Spider-Man universe, if the casting was good and the script wasn't a blasphemy.
Starfox - 3/21/2014, 11:49 PM
ALmight while I agree with you, I actually meant Marvel/Disney. But Yes, Fox has had plenty of "Green Lanterns". Still that doesn't mean that the new FF will be shit lol.

Where are all the Fox fanboys when you need them? (p.s. I'm not one of them.)
staypuffed - 3/21/2014, 11:50 PM
I'm still hoping this is an April Fool's joke.
TheBeard - 3/21/2014, 11:51 PM
frack this movie
jimoakley666 - 3/22/2014, 12:20 AM
He's got a face like an old lady. I'm not making any kinda point with that. Just an observation.
AsgardianHobo - 3/22/2014, 12:29 AM
@jimoakley666

"He's got a face like an old lady."

LOL! Now I can't unsee it, thx for that
Moohika - 3/22/2014, 12:34 AM
Is it just me or does Miles Teller just look and sound like a douche.
