This may be the new Fantastic Four

Fox's Fantastic Four reboot seems to have found its cast. The Wrap is reporting that Marvel's first family will include (from left to right) Miles Teller as Reed Richards, Kate Mara as Sue Storm, Michael B. Jordan as Johnny Storm/The Human Torch, and Jamie Bell as Ben Grimm, a.k.a. The Thing.


That looks like a solid cast to me, although I am kind of confused by Jamie Bell as the Thing. He's only 5'7", and probably weighs 150 at most — I have to assume his Thing will be all CG, right? Or are we going to get a tiny, lithe Thing? Surely not. Only one thing is certain at this point, and that's that I'm going to make terrible, immature Thing jokes for the next several hours.

I feel that Jordan should play Reed instead. An African-American lead actor playing a super genius? Oh yes!
