Fantastic Four Trailer Shows Black Actor Michael B Jordan As Human Torch
The first trailer for a new Fantastic Four movie, was released earlier today to some controversy. This is because the sneak peek at the contemporary reboot of Marvel's superhero movie shows black African American actor Michael B. Jordan as Johnny Storm or the Human Torch, a role that has historically been white in both the comics and the previous movies.
More acceptable to the franchise fans are Jamie Bell as Ben Grimm/The Thing, Kate Mara as Susan Storm/Invisible Woman, and Miles Teller Reed Richards/Mr. Fantastic.
The reason many say they are upset is because Johnny Storm and Susan Storm are supposed to be siblings, so how can a black man have a white sister? The answer I think is simple and plenty, one of them was adopted, one is biracial, or whatever. Anyway, see the trailer below...
