Some may argue that it’s a bit too soon for a Fantastic Four
reboot, but like it or not, it’s happening.
The original two movies which starred Jessica Alba and Chris Evans will be made over with some fresh, young faces.
reported earlier this year that 20th
Century Fox was considering Michael B. Jordan for the role of Johnny Storm, and although that has yet to be confirmed, it appears he’s still the frontrunner.
New reports from Variety
now link Saoirse Ronan (who is also rumored for a role in the upcoming Star Wars 7
) and Kit Harrington from HBO’s Game of Thrones
. If the stars align, it would make for a young cast of rising Hollywood stars, and may make up for seemingly the all-too-soon reboot of the franchise.
Though Saoirse and Kit seem like excellent choices, there are some other contenders who will reportedly be auditioning for the roles. Jack O’Connell and Miles Teller are rumored to be reading for the part of Reed Richards along with Kit; and Kate Mara and Margot Robbie will be giving Ronan a run for her money for the part of Sue Storm.
