In a recent intervinew, Miles Teller has confirmed he is playing Reed Richards, aka Mr. Fantastic, in the Fantastic Four movie for Josh Trank.

Teller told IGN the following:

Well, for me I didn't grow up really as a comic book kid necessarily. Fantastic Four is my dad's favorite superhero comic. And so for me I guess what attracted me originally was Josh Trank. I think Josh Trank is a very creative, inventive guy. You look at Chronicle, you look at what he did for that budget and just how he told the story was really well done. I want to chase directors at this point, and then the cast kind of came together -- Michael B. (Jordan), Kate Mara, and Jamie Bell -- I was very excited.

When I read the script, I didn't feel like I was reading this larger-than-life, incredible supehero tale. These are all very human people that end up having to become I guess what is known as the Fantastic Four. So for me it was just a really good story and gives me an opportunity to play something different from my own skin. It's a proper character and that's my favorite stuff to do.

Michael B. Jordan plays the Human Torch, Kate Mara plays Sue Storm and Jamie Bell plays The Thing.

Fantastic Four has a June 19, 2015 release.
