FANTASTIC FOUR Featurettes Reveal Why Josh Trank Chose His Lead Actors

     April 4, 2015


That new Fantastic Four international trailer was a bit underwhelming, but I’m still holding out hope that director Josh Trank will prove the skeptics wrong and deliver, especially with top talent like Miles Teller, Michael B. Jordan, Jamie Bell and Kate Mara leading the film. If you need a little more convincing that they were the best choices for Mr. Fantastic, Human Torch, The Thing and Invisible Woman, check out the new Fantastic Four featurettes Fox just unveiled on Twitter. They feature Trank and writer-producer Simon Kinberg discussing why Teller, Jordan, Bell and Mara were the best choices for the roles. The duo recalls Teller’s audition for Chronicle, they talk about the chemistry between Jordan and Mara, what Bell will bring to his role and more.

You can give all four featurettes a watch below. Fantastic Four is due in theaters on August 7th and also stars Toby Kebbell, Tim Blake Nelson and Reg E. Cathey.

Here is the official synopsis for Fantastic Four:

THE FANTASTIC FOUR, a contemporary re-imagining of Marvel’s original and longest-running superhero team, centers on four young outsiders who teleport to an alternate and dangerous universe, which alters their physical form in shocking ways. Their lives irrevocably upended, the team must learn to harness their daunting new abilities and work together to save Earth from a former friend turned enemy.
