The Fantastic Four reboot casting department has decided whom they’d like to see in spandex unitards. As rumored, Michael B. Jordan will play the Human Torch. Kate Mara is the lead choice for Invisible Woman Sue Storm, with Miles Teller as Mr. Fantastic Reed Richards, and Jamie Bell as the Thing. The deals are not finalized yet but it is reported that both Jordan and Bell are pretty much locked in. Which is pretty rude toward Zac Efron, who would have appreciated at least an invite to the That Awkward Moment reunion.

Although he can continue to hold out hope as it remains unknown who will play Dr. Doom. The role has been somewhat narrowed down as director Josh Trank recently confirmed the classic villain will continue to have a penis. (Deadline)

In not-the-worst-news-considering-Sylvester-Stallone-will-piss-on-any-beloved-franchise-to-turn-a-dime, MGM has announced their moving forward with the Rocky spinoff/reboot, Creed.  Based on a pitch from Fruitvale Station writer and director Ryan Coogler, Creed follows Apollo Creed’s grandson who decides to follow in his grandfather’s footsteps by pursuing a boxing career despite his considerable wealth. He turns to Rocky Balboa to be his trainer. Michael B. Jordan is in talks to play the lead.

This actually sounds fresh. It’s an inventive way of breathing new life into a beloved franchise and is the perfect project to launch the on-the-rise Jordan into superstardom. I say if this works out, we get a film centering on Paulie’s bastard son (played by Artie Lange) as he tries to break into the world of professional mooching off celebrities. Guaranteed box office gold!  (Deadline)
