Michael B. Jordan Responds to His ‘Fantastic Four’ Critics.

Early glimpses at Josh Trank’s reboot of the Marvel property Fantastic Four have made the movie look more grounded and realistic than its comic book source material, but a new ad demonstrates the team’s powers in all their glory — and confirms that at least one of the comic book’s code names has made it into the movie intact.

Jordan as the Human Torch in Josh Trank’s Fantastic Four was something that angered a vocal section of fandom, who wanted to see a cinematic Torch as white as the original comic book character.

In a new essay, Jordan responds to the outcry, advising those upset to take a look around. “It used to bother me, but it doesn’t anymore,” Jordan writes in Entertainment Weekly of the response to his casting. “I can see everybody’s perspective, and I know I can’t ask the audience to forget 50 years of comic books.

Interestingly enough, Johnny, Reed and Sue Storm aren’t given their own comic book names in the ad, raising the issue of whether we’ll get to hear the words “Mr.

I’ll take the brunt for the next couple of generations,'” arguing that if his role in Fantastic Four sets an example, “Hollywood will start considering more people of color in other prominent roles, and maybe we can reach the people who are stuck in the mindset that ‘it has to be true to the comic book.'” Directly addressing the trolls, Jordan suggested, “Get your head out of the computer. We’ve got a few new promo images and posters, a promo reel that shows off the characters powers, and a new international trailer that features fresh footage. “Fantastic Four” lands in theaters August 7.
