We have our new first family of Marvel! Variety is reporting that the FOX has their new Fantastic Four. Though, apparently, they are not all signed officially. Miles Teller (Divergent) will play Mr. Fantastic , Kate Mara (Iron Man 2) will play The Invisible Woman, and Jamie Bell (The Adventures of Tintin) will be The Thing. They will join Michael B. Jordan (Chronicle) as The Human Torch.
The reboot of the series will adhere to Stan Lee and Jack Kirby’s original comic, but with the modern sensibilities of Brian Michael Bendis and Mark Millar’s Ultimate Fantastic Four.
Josh Trank (Chronicle) will direct the picture with Simon Kinberg, Matthew Vaughn (Kick-Ass) and Gregory Goodman (X-Men: First Class) serving as producers. The script was just given a polish by Kinberg (Star Wars Rebels), which got the picture back on track.
The Fantastic Four is slated to arrive June 19, 2015.
