My dream cast for this - Michael B. Jordan for Johnny, Helen Mirren as Sue, Jonah Hill as Reed and Peter Dinklage as Ben Grimm.
Jonah Hill?!?!?!
I think he was going for sarcasm. Is Jonah Hill really that more outrageous than the other casting choices?
Actually with with forced perspective Dinklage could make a great Ben Grimm/Thing. But, yea, Helen Mirren, as awesome as she is, just isn't quite right for Sue

I see Dinklage as more of a Reed type. A thinker.

Re: Fantastic Four reboot-- Casting, Rumors, Pix, ect;

I would love if the film took place in the 1960s, but I guess that would be too much to hope. Plus, it probably wouldn't make much sense if they want to tie it to the X-Men films.

They should cast a real brother and sister as Sue and Johnny.

From the actors suggested...it seems like they're going the Ultimate Fantastic Four route.
Most of the recent Marvel movies have drawn elements from the Ultimate universe, or done similar things -- Galactus as a cosmic swarm, the Hulk's origin being linked to supersoldier serum, Nick Fury looking like Samuel L. Jackson, etc. Which makes sense, since both the Ultimate Universe and the movies are attempts to reinvent the Marvel universe with more modern sensibilities, to filter out some of the sillier, more dated, or more problematical aspects of the original works.

^ Yes. I'm aware of that. I meant though with their ages this time. As I mentioned above they're much younger characters in the Ultimate Universe.

If they'd made it a couple of years ago, they could've tied it to the X-Men First Class era. But with DOFP jumping forwards to the 1970s, I suppose that window has closed.

Reed wasn't born a fortysomething with gray temples.
LOL, yea, I know that. But wasn't he that age in the origin stories? (IE: He's quite a bit older than Sue and Johnny, a good 10+ years?)
His implied age goes up and down a bit, I think. A comic book cover from 2011 puts his date of birth as 1961, but a one-off special from 1998 or so has Ben Grimm remarking that not one of the four had been born yet in 1961. Personally, I take his and Grimm's ages as having been about the same as Stan Lee's in 1961 and so probably fiftyish now. Maybe they should have marked the FF's fiftieth anniversary by making it Reed or Ben's fiftieth birthday. (I think it was X-Men #24 in 1993 that had the Beast musing about his own impending thirtieth. Thought it was a nice touch.)

Actually, yes. Jonah Hill should leave this planet as soon as possible. If there's a mission to Mars, he should be the first choice.

The Ultimate Universe was also designed to be a cinematic universe with most of the original story arcs being set up like motion pictures. Fury was designed based on Jackson, the X-Men wore uniforms similar to the movie uniforms.

A lot of the movie costume designs are very similar to the Ultimate Universe as well with the exception being Iron Man.

I always took it that in the 60s, Reed, Ben, and Nick Fury were supposed to have been about the same age as Stan and Jack, having also served in the war as young men. FWIW, in addition to only aging in comic book time, there was at least one minor de-aging in-continuity. A 1979-ish story had Reed, Ben, and Sue subjected to a Skrull aging ray as a slow means of execution. When Johnny finally cured them, he used too large a dose in desperation, and they were said to have come out a few years younger than they had been.

According to this site, Michael B. Jordan has signed to play the Human Torch. I don't know how reliable the site is though.
