More Actors In Contention For THE FANTASTIC FOUR; Will Doctor Doom Be A Woman?

After a promising update from director Josh Trank yesterday, a new list of actors testing for roles in The Fantastic Four have been revealed; including our first candidate for The Thing! The hunt is also on for a big name star to play Doctor Doom, although he may be a she in the reboot...


Less than 24 hours after Josh Trank debunked those plot rumours for The Fantastic Four, The Hollywood Reporter has discovered which actors have been testing for a role in the reboot these past couple of days. According to multiple insiders, Kate Mara (House of Cards) and Emmy Rossum (Shameless) have tested for the role of Sue Storm/The Invisible Woman, while Miles Teller (Whiplash) tried out for Reed Richards/Mr. Fantastic. English actor Christian Cook (Romeo and Juliet ), meanwhile, is said to have tested for Ben Grimm, a.k.a. The Thing! Michael B. Jordan is the only actor locked in right now, while earlier reports naming Saoirse Ronan, Elizabeth Olsen and Kit Harington have all come to nothing for various reasons. Most interesting is the fact that the site states: "Dr. Doom is said to be the villain of the reboot. The Hollywood Reporter's Heat Vision is hearing that the studio is likely to go for a big name and isn’t ruling out switching genders for the role." Casting is ongoing, so this could all change in the coming days and weeks...
