Watch: New Footage In 2nd International ‘Fantastic Four’ Trailer; Michael B. Jordan Addresses Internet Haters

23 May 2015 6:00 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

In case you missed the requisite drama and outrage, comic book fans freaked when “Fruitvale Station” actor Michael B. Jordan landed the part of the Human Torch because the original character, Johnny Storm, is Caucasian and Jordan is African American. In the comics he is also the brother of Sue Storm, the Invisible Woman, and so how does that work? It doesn’t really matter, fans were just angered that 20th Century Fox and director Josh Trank changed the race of the original character. Jordan has stayed mostly silent about the backlash until now in an Entertainment Weekly article where he’s basically said to the haters, come at me, bro. "You’re not supposed to go on the Internet when you’re cast as a superhero,” he said in his open later. “But after taking on Johnny Storm in Fantastic Four—a character originally written with blond hair and »

Fantastic Four's Michael B. Jordan Addresses Internet Trolls In Heartfelt Letter

22 May 2015 7:02 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

The internet exploded when it was announced that Michael B. Jordan would play Johnny Storm, also known as the Human Torch, in the upcoming Fantastic Four reboot from director Josh Trank. There is always upheaval when a beloved comic book character is cast, no matter who gets the role, but in this case, it was especially vehement and disturbing. See, Jordan is black, and Johnny Storm has always been white. A lot of anger has been vented, and now Jordan has responded with a heartfelt letter to all the haters. Fantastic Four is only a few months away, so this has been going on all throughout preproduction, filming, and the marketing build up. For his part, Johnson has mostly stayed out of it, but he recently took to the pages of EW to address those who are still upset with his casting, advising them to take a look at the »

Michael B. Jordan on ‘Fantastic Four’ Casting Backlash: I’ll ‘Shoulder All This Hate’

22 May 2015 4:58 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Michael B. Jordan is responding to a backlash after being cast as Johnny Storm in the upcoming “Fantastic Four” reboot. The announcement created a stir from fans of the comic book franchise, originally created by Stan Lee.

“You’re not supposed to go on the Internet when you’re cast as a superhero,” Jordan wrote in a short essay for Entertainment Weekly. As he mentions in the article, his comic character was originally described as having blond hair and blue eyes.

“I didn’t want to be ignorant about what people were saying,” he wrote. “Turns out this is what they were saying: ‘A black guy? I don’t like it. They must be doing it because Obama’s president’ and ‘It’s not true to the comic.’ Or even, ‘They’ve destroyed it!'”

Months later, the new Human Torch says that the negative comments no longer bother him. »

See the new Fantastic Four's incredible powers in the superhero reboot's teaser

22 May 2015 3:53 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

A brand new look at the super-powered heroes in Fantastic Four is the highlight of a MovieTickets advert.

The television teaser sees two military leaders advertising the ticketing website while watching clips from the upcoming Fantastic Four movie.

Human Torch (Michael B Jordan) demonstrates his famous 'flame on' power, Mr Fantastic (Miles Teller) stretches to incredible lengths, the Invisible Woman (Kate Mara) vanishes on command, and The Thing (Jamie Bell) mainly looks menacing.

Director Josh Trank's reboot of the Fantastic Four franchise re-envisions the heroes as having their physiology changed during an accidental teleportation to an alternate universe.

The film also portrays the classic Marvel Comics villain Dr Doom as an anti-social programmer played by Toby Kebbell.

Reaction to the re-envisioning thus far has been mixed among Marvel Comics devotees, with star Kate Mara admitting that she's been confused by Fantastic Four's pre-release publicity.

Michael B. Jordan responds to criticism of his casting as Johnny Storm in Fantastic Four

22 May 2015 3:02 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Back at the start of the year, a section of the internet exploded with the news that black actor Michael B. Jordan had been cast as white comic book character Johnny Storm in 20th Century Fox’s reboot of Fantastic Four. Jordan has spoken briefly on the backlash on several occasions [see here and here], but now with the film on the horizon, he’s penned a lengthy response over at EW:

You’re not supposed to go on the Internet when you’re cast as a superhero. But after taking on Johnny Storm in Fantastic Four—a character originally written with blond hair and blue eyes—I wanted to check the pulse out there. I didn’t want to be ignorant about what people were saying. Turns out this is what they were saying: “A black guy? I don’t like it. They must be doing it because Obama’s president” and “It »

Jordan Talks "Fantastic Four" Criticism

22 May 2015 2:22 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Though it has settled down somewhat, there remains a small but determined contingent of "Fantastic Four" fans who are not happy with the casting of Michael B. Jordan as Johnny Storm in Fox's upcoming reboot of the property.

Though Jordan has commented on the backlash before, he has now written a lengthy response to his critics in a letter posted on EW in which he makes his feelings very clear. Here's an excerpt:

"It used to bother me, but it doesn't anymore. I can see everybody's perspective, and I know I can't ask the audience to forget 50 years of comic books. But the world is a little more diverse in 2015 than when the Fantastic Four comic first came out in 1961. Plus, if Stan Lee writes an email to my director saying, “You're good. I'm okay with this,” who am I to go against that?

Michael B. Jordan's Heartfelt Response To Those Opposed To His Fantastic Four Casting

They must be doing it because Obama’s president” and “It’s not true to the comic.” Or even, “They’ve destroyed it!” So begins Michael B. Jordan's letter (via EW) in response to the backlash his casting in Josh Trank's Fantastic Four reboot received. His character, Johnny Storm aka the Human Torch, was a white guy in the comics so even though Jordan had proven himself a fine actor with roles in the likes of Fruitvale Station and Chronicle, »

Fantastic Four Teaser Reveals The Thing In All His Rocky Glory

22 May 2015 1:06 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Leave it to 20th Century Fox to get beaten by Movietickets at promoting its own movie. A new trailer for the site’s ticket-buying app has given us a sneak peek at the powers that will be on display throughout this summer’s Fantastic Four, from Johnny Storm’s manipulation of fire to Reed Richard’s stretching ability. It’s a pretty solid way to tease what all comic-book aficionados want to see from the blockbuster – and certainly a better preview than the overly glum, Nolan-esque trailers Fox has been putting out, at least until it turns into a commercial.

Perhaps less is more with these kinds of things – personally, I feel like knowing way too much about Avengers: Age of Ultron going into it kind of ruined the movie for me. For 20 seconds, the above trailer gives us tantalizing snippets of Josh Trank’s vision for the characters, and »

So far, the trailers for Josh Trank‘s Fantastic Four have shown us brief glimpses of the characters’  powers. We haven’t really gotten a chance, however, to visually study each ability. We now have a pretty decent chance to do that in a very odd place. Movietickets.com has released a commercial featuring the Fantastic Four and, for […]

'Fantastic Four' Star Michael B. Jordan Responds to Critics of Black Johnny Storm

22 May 2015 9:55 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Not everyone feels, well, fantastic about a black actor taking on the role of Johnny Storm/The Human Torch in the new "Fantastic Four" movie. In this re-imagining, Kate Mara plays Sue Storm/The Invisible Woman, Miles Teller is Reed Richards/Mr. Fantastic, Jamie Bell is Ben Grimm/The Thing, and Michael B. Jordan is Johnny Storm, the role played by Chris Evans in the 2005 movie.

Since Johnny was originally written to be blond with blue eyes, some fans grumbled about the change to cast Michael B. Jordan. Jordan just wrote a piece for Entertainment Weekly, responding to comments like "A black guy? I don't like it. They must be doing it because Obama's president," "It's not true to the comic," and "They've destroyed it!"

Here's part of what Jordan wrote:

New Fantastic Four Footage Gives Us Red-Hot Look At The Human Torch

22 May 2015 7:46 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

So much of the marketing materials for Josh Trank’s upcoming Fantastic Four have focused on the introduction of the team members. To date, we haven’t seen much of their powers. CGI delays have been the assumed reason, but now that we are getting closer to the film’s release, clips like this show off what the Fantastic Four are able to do. This footage, courtesy of a MovieTickets promo, places an emphasis on Michael B. Jordan’s take on The Human Torch – meaning that we finally get a full glance of Johnny Storm flaming on. He doesn’t shout “Flame On!” in the clip (a missed opportunity to please the fanboys), but it’s a nice, extended glimpse at the effects being used to cover this kid’s body in fire. It also gives us a great look »

The latest commercial for Josh Trank's Fantastic Four may just be a promo for MovieTickets.com, but it also gives us our clearest look at both The Thing and Johnny Storm. It is interesting to note just how different the Human Torch appears in the new version and yet very much the same as we are used to. Yes, he is covered in flames like the version Chris Evans played, but the Michael B. Jordan iteration of the character looks to be on fire rather than made of it. There are a couple of new »
