As important as its legacy is, the F4 didn’t have a great run; Fantastic Four and Rise of the Silver Surfer were two blockbusters that ultimately didn’t inspire the effort to create more movies. That may soon come to an end, however. 20th Century Fox is in the process of rebooting the franchise with a whole new direction, and the finished product promises to be one of the biggest films of 2015. So what do we know so far? Hulky actor Michael Chiklis was the last to bring Ben Grimm to the big screen, but the remake is taking another route; Jamie Bell has been selected to play the nearly-indestructible Thing. Ioan Gruffudd created a mature version of Mr. Fantastic, but Miles Teller has been tapped to become the next Reed Richards. Kate Mara got her first taste of a comic movie in Iron Man 2, but she’s ready to step up to the plate. The actress has been chosen to be Susan Storm, following in the footsteps of Jessica Alba. All of the choices have been seen as controversial, but none more so than Josh Trank’s selection to play Johnny Storm. The character has always been drawn as Caucasian, but playing him will be Michael B. Jordan. Presumably, either Johnny or Sue will be adopted, but we shouldn’t expect race to play any kind of role beyond that. Though he was confirmed to be part of the cast at a later time, Toby Kebbell has been hired to revive the legendary Dr. Doom. Fox has some very big plans for The Fantastic Four. In addition to penciling in the film for June 19, 2015, it’s already announced that the sequel will be in theaters on July 14, 2017. It’s hard to say if the studio’s excited or if it’s desperate to get a superhero series off the ground, but regardless, we’ll be seeing a lot of the Fantastic Four over the next few years.
