We have passed along Fantastic Four casting rumors for nearly a year now. It seems Fox is very close to finalizing the cast. THR reports the studio is in the final stages of negotiation with Miles Teller for Mr. Fantastic, Kate Mara for Invisible Girl, Michael B. Jordan for the Human Torch, and Jamie Bell for The Thing. Bell is the only name we have yet to hear attached to the project, but he’s a great addition to a promising young cast. Mara, nearly 31, is the oldest of the group. Heck, she’s older than director Josh Trank (Chronicle), who just turned 30. The age range may not match the public conception of the Marvel superhero group, but such a group of fresh voices reassures the reboot will look nothing like Fox’s other Fantastic Four attempts.
Fantastic Four is scheduled for release on June 19, 2015. Hit the jump for background from the comics.
