Miles Teller has appeared in such movies as the Footloose remake, Project X, and Spectacular Now. The Wrap previously reported that Michael B. Jordan was under consideration for the Human Torch role, which appears to have been true, so they must have an inside track on the film.
Even though Miles Teller is reportedly director Josh Trank's top choice for the Mr. Fantastic role, a casting director has not even been officially hired for the film yet. While Miles Teller is considered an up and coming talent, his age might become a topic of debate among fans. Miles Teller is 26 years old (but he looks even younger), and Mr. Fantastic has traditionally been portrayed in the comic books as being in his late thirties or early forties.
The Fantastic Four reboot is scheduled to be released in movie theaters on March 6, 2015.
