Miles Teller will play Reed Richards/Mr. Fantastic; Kate Mara takes on the role of Sue Storm/Invisible Woman; Michael B. Jordan will flame on as Johnny Storm/Human Torch; and Jamie Bell has won the part of Ben Grimm/The Thing.

As THR points out, the cast isn't considered "A-Listers", but they're all rising stars in Hollywood.


"The new cast may not be household names or A-listers but in terms of a next gen "best of" class it can’t be beat. Teller is on the rise and fielding multiple offers, Jordan is nominated for an Indie Spirit for his acclaimed work in Fruitvale Station, and Mara has cachet due to co-starring in House of Cards. Brit thespian Bell is one of the stars of Lars von Trier’s Nymphomaniac." - Borys Kit/Pamela McClintock
