In a recent interview with NY Daily News, actor Michael B. Jordan spoke about his upcoming role in the 20th Century Fox reboot of the Fantastic Four. He explained that he has known about this role for about two and a half years now, and was very enthusiastic about the new vision that director Josh Trank has for the franchise.
Jordan praised the production work and support of the studio saying, “We’re lucky we had a studio behind us that really supported our ambition and our want for change. Now we have something really epic.” He also noted that he has always “fantasized” about his character, and taking on the role is, “a huge deal” for the actor.
The film is set for release on August 7th, 2015 and also stars Miles Teller, Kate Mara, Jamie Bell, Toby Kebbell, Time Blanke Nelson, and Reg E. Cathey. Fans can look forward to seeing Jordan on screen wearing a costume that is “a lot tighter” than he expected.
