Michael B. Jordan Talks ‘Fantastic Four,’ ‘Star Wars Episode 7′ & ‘Independence Day 2′

Michael B Jordan in Chronicle1 Michael B. Jordan Talks  Fantastic Four, Star Wars Episode 7 & Independence Day 2

Like many young actors on the cusp of making it big, Fruitvale Station star Michael B. Jordan’s dance card is filling up fast with both confirmed roles and rumored ones. Not only is he set to play the grandson of Apollo Creed in a Rocky spinoff movie, rather appropriately titled Creed, he also just completed filming on romantic comedy That Awkward Moment and is rumored to have auditioned for a number of different roles in three major upcoming sci-fi movies.

Things might be literally heating up for Jordan if the talk of him playing Johnny Storm in Fox’s upcoming Fantastic Four reboot comes to fruition. Jordan confirmed rumors that he was in talks for the role a while ago, and has now said in an interview with The Associated Press that he’s still “Definitely interested in the project.” Like the casting of Lawrence Fishburne as Perry White in Man of Steel and Idris Elba as Heimdall in Thor (not to mention the talk of Donald Glover playing Spider-Man), there has been a lot of backlash against the idea of a black actor playing a character who was originally white.

There’s an interesting debate to be had on the subject, but ultimately any changes between the Fantastic Four comics and the movie adaptations are accounted for by the fact that the movies canonically take place in a parallel universe. Jordan does seem like a good fit to play the cocky young playboy, having already played a similar character with brash charm in Josh Trank’s Chronicle, and since Jordan and Trank are good friends it wouldn’t be surprising if the actor ends up in The Fantastic Four as well.

On the other hand, Jordan may not even have room for The Fantastic Four in his schedule if he ends up taking on other movie projects. During the interview he also touched on the subject of being considered for a role in Independence Day 2, and confirmed that he has been called in to audition for Star Wars Episode VII. He was non-committal about the former film, saying only that, “if that came true, that would be cool,” but was apparently very enthused about the current development of Disney’s new Star Wars trilogy:

“I mean, everybody’s going in on this project. They’re trying to figure out what they want. That’s another incredible franchise. It’s pretty crazy! …We’ll see how it happens. I don’t know how I can do everything.”

It certainly does seem as though everyone’s in on Star Wars Episode VII; barely a week goes by without us hearing another rumor of a famous name being called in to audition, but so far the only confirmed cast members are Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher and Mark Hamill.

If Jordan manages to land a part in all three movies then it could turn the next few years into a major launching pad for his career. Even starring in just one of them would be a strong move forward, so tell us in the comments which of these franchises you think Jordan would be best suited to.

  1. Fantastic Four hands down for me, do it Jordan! Though Star Wars would definitely be the bigger leap in his career. I’m hoping he gets at least one of the projects, like Hannah said, any one would be a huge leap forward.

  2. In respect to the FF rumors, I don’t have any problem with them making Johnny Storm black as long as they make Sue Storm black as well. It wouldn’t make much sense if they only made him black. Is he then adopted? Are comic book movies now exempt from genetic norms? I like Michael B. Jordan. He’s been good in everything I’ve seen him in, though I admit I haven’t seen much, but I would rather see the Black Panther, Luke Cage, Cyborg, Green Lantern (John Stewart), or any of the other black heroes/villains in comics brought to the big screen before other characters are changed. It wouldn’t really change anything about the character but I’d rather see a good black actor play a character who is already black so we can see those characters included in these expanding universes.

    • I don’t know if he’d fit in the roles for Black Panther or John Stewart, I don’t think he has the amount of raw intensity these characters have. I mostly see Cyborg, plus he already voiced the character in a DC animation film.

      • Oh I don’t mean he’d be good for those roles. Maybe Cyborg. I would just prefer to see those characters get their screen time before we start changing characters’ races.

        • Ah i’m a doof, I misread your comment, my mistake!

          • lol. it’s all good. I can see how it would read that way.

    • This is what we need, maybe they’re too scared to do a movie with a black lead so they have to change heroes to black?

      • I don’t know where you’d get that idea

        • The fact that they don’t have one on the current marvel universe gives me that idea..

          • How does that mean that they’re scared to do a movie with a black lead? They’ve said they wanna do Black Panther. I guess I just don’t agree with your wording.

            • They are probably scared in the fact that there are less #1 box office draw black lead actors than white actors. Even Will Smith is having an off year right now. If they are to pick a black lead they probably want someone like Will Smith (or they may agree to a lower budget if they cant get someone of equal audience draw).
              Its not to say that these other actors arent good its just may be that they wont generate the box office desired and therefore may not get chosen unless they are part of an ensemble.

              • Will Smith is having an off year because he’s a Scientologist and the spirit of L. Ron Hubbard is not with him. But seriously, he hasn’t chosen good movies this year. He turned down the role of Django because the character isn’t the one that kills Leo’s character. I don’t think anyone is scared to put a black actor as the lead in a movie. That seems to imply that black actors aren’t as popular. I understand that there may be less in quantity but there are many black actors that are “fan favorites” like Idris Elba who audiences want to see in these movies. They don’t have to already be a huge box office draw to sell a movie like Black Panther. None of the actors for the Avengers were big box office draws until they did their solo movies. People seem to forget that Robert Downey Jr. was not a big box office draw until Iron Man. He was known of course but he was a recently recovering alcoholic and coke addict before he did Kiss Kiss Bang Bang. Nobody is expecting them to get Will Smith or Denzel Washington or someone big like that to play these roles but I think most fans would prefer to see these traditionally black characters brought to the big screen before they see a black Johnny Storm or Robin or any other hero.

          • I would watch a Don Cheadle based movie so long as he is War Machine and not Iron Patriot.

          • Nick Fury

      • Why is everyone so focused on his color. It’s crazy =S.

        • @ ColdSC

          I got nothing against the actors/actress’s color. It’s the filmmakers that change the character’s color around. Would they change Bruce Wayne/Batman’s color? No way, he’s too popular in DC’s universe. We’d be lucky if one of the Robins were changed.

          • To be honest, I actually wanted Idris Elba to play the Batman before Affleck was announced. Not to add ‘diversity’ to the movie but I think he actually fits the role. As long as the person has the build that makes us believe he’s a martial artist, can pull off a billionaire and can look intimidating in the batsuit, I’m all for.

            I don’t think casting directors necessarily look to change the color around, but look passed it and see if an actor has everything they need that screams out Batman or Johnny Storm.

          • Comment is waiting under moderation.

    • Jessica Alba isn’t white by the way, shes a Latina.
      and she looks Latin. the guy that played storm looks white.
      how can they be brother and sister then?
      I’m mixed,but because my father was very dark skinned i don’t look have white.my brother from another father is white…people would look confused when we told them we were brothers…really not hard to understand really, if we use common sense.

  3. Some characters the race of the person does not matter, i.e. Heimdall. Other characters the race is part and parcel of their character. Johnny being the happy go lucky blond bad boy is who he is. If we make Johnny black, which is fine, then we need to make the Black Panther Hispanic and Luke Cage and Misty both Asian to be fair.

    • Or we could just make Sue Storm Hispanic to make it fair…oh wait.

      We already did that!

      • and it worked….other than the fact that Jessica Alba is a terrible actress

        • Jessica Alba is half white and played the character as white. I don’t think MBJ will be playing Johnny Storm as white.

          • playing as white… while having a brownish skin hahahahahahaha
            your funny dude

    • not really Black Panther HAS to be black but Luke Cage can be whatever he wants I don’t care mostly because I don’ like the character. but I don’t know why you feel it isn’t “fair for a character to be changed from white-black thats messed up there isn’t even ONE black character yet and you’re talking fairness…. get real there isnt even Latino or Asians represented yet as heroes

      btw this is to you @Taychon

      • Actually Blade has 3 movies, Spawn had one, Falcon will be in the next Captain American movie, Heimdall and Fury are black, technically Jessica Alba was hispanic as mentioned earlier, Yukio in Wolverine was Asian and Storm was black. And now that I brought it up, I would love to see a stand alone Yukio movie but I digress.

        And did you just make the reverse argument? Why does Black Panther have to be black out of curiosity? I mean I agree with you 100% but that is because that is who the Black Panther is…the same way that Johnny is white. Its just the way they were created. But we can agree to disagree but its odd that Luke Cage does not have to be black “cause you don’t like the character”. LOL. Being black is part of the genesis of the character.

        • The problem with changing the race of any character is that it often screws up a lot of back story possibilities that already exist in the comics. Some characters have already gone through a lot racually in the comics and it would be a shame to throw that out to experiment with the character for a single movie. By example i will give you the Mandarin from IM3. There was a lot of backstory tied to him being Asian that cannot be brought to the big screen due to what Shane did. By making such a radical change you are basically dismissing the hard work of previous writers and saying “i can write a better version of the character than you” which is a real slap in the face to the roots of where the character originated. And half the time these rewrites are done by directors that dont even follow comics.

          • “racually” should be “racially”

          • When has Johnny Storm ever faced any race related story arcs?

  4. Rumor has it his sister Sue Storm will either be Kate Mara(Amityville Horror, Shooter) or Saoirse Ronan(Hanna, The Host), which would be interesting.

  5. I wish they would have made him Apollo Creed’s son… And have Rocky return the favor and train him.

    • Whoever wrote this article apparently didn’t bother reading the article they linked under “play a young Apollo Creed” because both it and official reports are stating that Michael B. Jordan is set to play Apollo Creed’s grandson and Stallone may will reprise his role as Rocky to train him.

      http://screenrant.com/rocky-spinoff-movie-creed/

  6. I want to see him do Creed, and hopefully that will get great reviews. Then head out for Star Wars VII and get great reviews for that, even persuade Benedict Cumberbatch, Jennifer Lawrence, and Joseph Gordon-Levitt to join the cast. Then head on to Independence Day 2 and Fantastic Four just for more power in Hollywood.

  7. If he appeared in Stars Wars trilogy I guess he would be Lando’s son.

    • or Mace Windu’s offspring….

      • Mace Windu didn’t have a partner. He, like many other Jedi, was celibate.

        • Wasn’t Ki-Adi-Mundi married with kids and weren’t Kit Fisto and Aayla Secura seeing each other? Anakin had kids as did Mundi. It might not be common but its not unheard of…but he could also be his brother…or nephew as well.

          • But Windu didn’t. And nothing was said about Mundi’s kids in the movies. That’s something you’d have to google or read the side novels which aren’t technically canon. The only ones that were ever officially deemed canon was the Thron trilogy. If he were related to Windu, he’d have to be his grandson or something. Windu was a Master Jedi on the counsel when Anakin was 8 years old. And Anakin is a terrible example of how Jedi sometimes have kids. I’d argue that Mundi is as well because according to Wookieepdia, “Due to the Cerean’s social customs and low birth rate for males, Mundi was granted an extremely rare exception to be allowed to marry and have children.” I think it’s much more likely that he’d be a Jedi in training under Luke or Lando’s son.

            • Wrong. Novels, and comics are indeed considered cannon, directly under the movie cannon. However Windu never did have children, and giving him some would be dumb as hell. Ki-Adi was allowed to have kids because his race, the Cereans, have a gender population problem of only having 1 male to 8 females, therefore he was allowed to have wives and produce offspring because the Jedi realized that without him his race would be in even more danger. Kit Fisto and Aayla were seeing each other on the DL, as Anikan was seeing Padme. Also Kit and Aayla were incapable of producing children because they were of two completely different races.

    • or he could just be another none white character in the universe…the galaxy can have more than one black guy in it lol :)

  8. I’d be totally cool with him playing Johnny Storm if they make the Black Panther white when that movie comes out. I mean, what difference does it make right?

    • Racist as hell. Are you saying that a true, intelligent, and well off American can’t be black?

  9. Man !.. this kid already getting phone calls like that?

  10. The hell with it, just make them all Black and be done with it. Call it Urbantastic Fo’ or something. Johnny Storm could slinging crack rock to a guy, who in a freebasing accident, becomes Doctor Doom. Maybe get one of the Waynes Brothers to play Mister Fantastic!

    Would probably be a better movie then what ever mess Fow and Trank are going to come up with.

    • Sooooooooooo nobody gonna address this rascism???^^^^
      No???.. Okay moving on

      • yeah i know, just don’t swear lmao.
        why do some white folks hate so much?
        really don’t understand it.

    • Now that is blatant racist comment. I feel sorry for your children if you are their mother. Absolutely ridiculous!

    • You just sound like an !d!ot.

  11. Technically screenrant. The big three haven’t officially been confirmed. Ford is even saying he is undecided. You shouldn’t say confirmed unless you want me to call you el mayimbe!

  12. The Torch is white. He was written white, and as a believer in canon, he needs to be played white. Anyways, this actor, good or bad, does not look like a super hero facially no matter what the color. I am not saying anything ignorant like he can only be Torch if he burned himself to a crisp. I am saying the character was originally imagined to be a white guy, so we should stick with that. If we were talking about a character who was originally black, I would brace my feet and defend the stance that he should not be changed to white or any other ethnic background other than black. You know, I notice people screaming turn white people black and Egyptian and everything else, but why do I never hear anyone screaming to turn people who are non-white into white-acted parts? Maybe those of us who are white non-liberals should do that…but no…that would be as biased and discriminatory as what we are otherwise accused of if we simply say let EVERY ethnic background play the parts that were originally written for them. I am not criticizing any ethnic background or the ability of people of diverse ethnic backgrounds’ ability to do a good job playing a particular part. There are those out there who purposely miss the point.

    • Because there is a handful of black parts compared to white parts? You really are trying to make the argument “give the few black parts to white actors” and not sound biased or racist? Seriously. You have some self examining that you need to do. Plus. Please dont compare Johnny Storm (a fictional character) to the likes of Martin Luther King or other really important people in American History expecting it to give validity to your argument. You really have some serious issues if you put the importance of fictional comic book cannon anywhere near the same level or gravitas as the civil rights movement.

      • This was meant to be a reply to Goldilocks..

  13. By the way, before any of you jump me for saying keep Torch white, I hope you are planning on campaigning for Black Panther, Luke Cage, Martin Luther King, Malcolm X, and Michael Jackson to all be played by white folks. What is good for the goose is good for the gander, so take a gander at this and goose you!!

    (I actually hate when these conversations degenerate into a race war).

    • Using REAL historical figures and a character where his ethnicity is a significant part of his origin are probably one of the most ridiculous examples you can use.

      • The human torches whiteness has NOTHING to do with his character BP being from wakanda in Africa is and Malcolm x mlk are real people

    • Lox, I’m white. Still, I don’t think that your comparison to historical figures is accurate. Furthermore, I do not think that Johnny Storm’s race is integral to his character. Black Panther’s, on the other hand, is.

  14. Wow who gives a s*** what color he is. The fact people can’t look past that amazes me. As long as the actor plays the part well, I don’t care if superman is Chinese or if wolverines a skinny redheaded Irishman.

  15. this discussion amazes me…

    i can’t stand it when someone shares his opinion about a favorite caracter.
    about colour for example.
    that than someone starts about racism or race discrimination.

    what’s that ?
    leave the race argument outside discussions about caracters please .

    i like this actor and there are plenty of roles he can play.

    if somebody says that an actor is to old
    nobody starts about age discrimination ?

    • Yep. Torch is white, black panther is black. No racism in that.
      And the poeple who say that “it’s ok if torch is black”, yeah… I’d like to know your comment if we are talking of a black superman x)

      • Actually, there have been a couple of stories that have featured a black Superman, and Stan Lee’s (yes, THAT Stan Lee) series for DC featured a black Batman.

        True, these stories HAVE always been alternate reality stories, BUT the story from this FF movie is not suddenly going to pop up in the mainstream Marvel universe (Reality 616) either, so…

        That whole “IF you’re gonna change one, you gotta change all the others” argument is just silly and childish.

        BTW, though I’m directly responding to Martin’s comment, my response is to ALL of those people who have been blowing acrid smoke throughout this and other similar threads…

      • they have a black spiderman and know one cared..did you?

  16. Lol he’s the new “black guy we add in movie to make it multicultural”

    • thats the stuff you get if we all gonna behave so racial sensitive :)
      black = black
      white = white
      man = man
      woman = woman
      old = old
      young = young
      gay = gay
      staight = straight

      people are what they are.
      making a point of it is useless
      there is no difference

    • the majority of movie goers are not white like the GOOD OL’ DAYS if you catch my drift?
      Jesus was black and was changed to suit the European culture….who cares!

  17. Isn’t it the point that in reality there are not enough Black/other superheros in comic books to begin with or that many of those characters that do exist are yet to be given their due?

    It feels that way to me, I think rather then change white characters to Black or any other ethnic background, just to say ‘Here’s some diversity’ is pretty insulting all the way around in a lot of cases. (But certainly not all)

    So here’s an idea, why not give the underrepresented (but loved) characters a chance to shine? IMO its a perfect time for it.

    • See? Although I’d be perfectly fine (happy, in fact) with Michael B. Jordan playing Johnny Storm in this film (“Chronicle” shows, at least to an extent, his ability to portray this type of character), you (Uncultured Swine) with VERY few others make a fair point about wanting to see other characters onscreen instead of merely falling back on the pathetic “if you…then you…” argument.

      Thank you for taking the high road.

    • no its not

      the only point is which actor plays which caracter
      and normally they choose an actor cause he can portray a caracter and have simular looks.

      choosing an actor on these other argument is bs
      movies are entertainment.
      leave those things to politics

  18. Really? We’re going there? Historical figures and icons are comparable to comic book characters now? Ignoring the fact that ancient Egyptians and ancient Canaanites (and so on) have been portrayed by “white” (we ‘Muricans got a lot of catching up to do by the way) actors since the conception of the motion picture how can people deign to call it a double standard?

    And while I have no problem with a character’s ethnicity being tweaked (as long that character’s integrity remains intact) I’m with the folks clamoring for a John Stewart or Black Panther film.

  19. I think cyborg , if there ever was a justice league movie based on the new 52, should play by a white guy because race has nothing to do with his character and personality
    What do you guys think ?

    • As long as the actor fits the part!

    • i think that movie studios are smarter than you think when they change a characters race…it’s a big world out their, with lot’s of colored faces.

  20. Hes good young black actor

    • NO. He’s a good young actor. Who is black.

      There’s a difference.

      He’s defined by his talent and abilities. Not by his race.

      (Has anyone EVER said, “Sean Penn is a fine, distinguished White Actor”?
      No, that’d be ludicrous.)

  21. Michael B. Jordan for Lando in a Han Solo Standalone Spinoff film!

  22. Maybe he’ll be the Plasma Alien Human Torch? :3

  23. Sorry, sorry, sorry but I have to say people at screen rant seem like recruitment agents. How many times do we see articles endorsing a certain actor.

    I’ve read the same comments about this actor previously. The same thing happened when Ben Affleck was to play Batman. You are so biased.

    • UH OH if they agree with two castings, they MUST be working for the studio.

      • Heh-heh…yep. MUST be. ;)

    • We’re biased for not immediately freaking out and saying that they’re going to be terrible despite not having seen any footage?

  24. If he is offered the role of Apollo Creed’s grandson. fine. Good Luck.
    If he is going to be Will Smith’s step-son in ID, fine. Good Luck.
    If he is going to be a Jedi in Episode VII. Fine. Good luck.

    But if he is going to be The Human Torch then the studio has to come clean and say. ‘To all the fans out there, this is going to be The F4 in an alternate universe. We are using the What If…? Comic.’

    Then I would have the right to either decide to endorse the film or simply say; thank you but no thank you!

    • But all the movies are set in an alternate universe. None of them are set in Earth-616. There’s really no need for them to say that explicitly.

  25. Studios must be obliged to do this. I’m sick of being offered a film that supposedly resembles the comic but then turns out to be something farther from the truth.

    • It’s a comic…there is no “truth”…other than the world established IN that comic. The same applies to movies: As long as the world within a movie remains internally consistent, THAT is its truth. The studio does NOT have to say their movie is an alternate reality…especially since they are creating THE reality for those particular characters in their given movieverse.

      As for you having the right to do ANYTHING regarding the creation of this Fantastic Four movieverse, you really only have ONE right: See it…or NOT.

      • +1
        Movie universe are always alternate universes. It provides leg room.

      • this is 100 % true. and for the same reasom the whole racial arguments should be banished as well

        • in that case, let’s have a Black panther movie in an alternate universe in which thye wakanda’s royal family adopted a white girl who was found in their land after her family died somehow.

          • What difference would that make? And what purpose would them adopting her serve… Do you mean she would be black panther?

            • movies are always based in alternate universes, right? then that way you get a main female superhero and the adoption story work as well as a black johnny storm.

          • seen a lot of those movies before..the white savior. lol

  26. Where’s the consistency in having a white sister and a black brother?

    • You actually (with a straight face) asked that question?

      You’ve never met any adopted siblings…REALLY?

      • i don’t understand why people use the argument about Susan Storm having to be black also. their are many mixed cultures where brothers and sisters are black and white.let me explain it to you…..my mother is white and my father is a dark skinned African American man. because of this i am mixed. but because my father has the stronger genes i am darker then most mixed people, to the point where you wouldn’t even know i was half and half.a friend of mine had a baby that was brown skinned, even though she was white and her boyfriend was white. turned out her great grand father was African American and she didn’t know it cause she was adopted.i don’t know if it’s ignorance or if you all really don’t know this kind of thing.still don’t get it? SUSAN STORM COULD BE BARACK OBAMA’S SISTER!!!!

    • One of them could be adopted…

      • Or half-siblings, or step-siblings etc.

  27. He’s A great actor i say go for it

    • If Micheal B. Jordan is cast in ‘THE FANTASTIC FOUR’ to portray Jonathan Lowell Spencer “Johnny” Storm/The Human Torch (I put that there to help myself become use to his full name) i would not be disappealed, only if the character is portrayed as “Johnny Storm”.

      Even so with Terry Crews whom expressed interest in portraying Benjiman Jacob “Ben” Grimm/The Thing (Him too). I would be totally fine. Only if the character is portayed as “Ben Grimm”.

      And if Johnny is portrayed by a male of African descent, and in the movie he or Susan “Sue” Storm/The Invisible Woman isn’t adopted into the Storm family, it would be a sensable decision to have Susan portrayed by a female of African descent. Only if the character is portayed as “Susan Storm”

      And for Reed Richards/Mr. Fantastic, i wouldn’t be disappealed if the actor who will be cast to portray him isn’t of European descent. I continue to say. Only if the character is portrayed as “Reed Richards”.

      And even so with any human villain/villains who could appear.

  28. calling someone a racist for not want to have his favorite comic caracter being changed is ignorant.
    that has nothing to do with racism but with a love for comic books. leave the racism out. go into politics if you want to change the world.

    but this is a movie site.
    its entertainment.
    its about a comic book movie.

    you must go overthink your arguments.
    and leave ANY politics out of movie discussions.
    except for movies that are about political themes ofcourse.

    • it didn’t start that way. people started complaining that he is black, not the other way around.if race is not an issue , than why complain at all about the color of a superhero, i mean jesus was black and now is white ans i don’t care.

      • its about the origin and characterisics that are changed…..
        not only race or colour is a problem to be changed.
        everything is.
        take a look at the discussion about Ultron and Ant-man
        or quicksilver and scarlett witch..
        these are the same feelings why fans protest.
        the bigger the change the bigger and more the protest

        and when Kingpin was changed or now Electro.
        and protests are not so big .
        is because the characters are less popular.
        and they where not on film before.

    • actually all the people in the Bible are colored and yet some how became white….like i said, i don’t care….but if someone want’s to complain about changing a characters race, Jesus would be a BIGGIE, DON’T YOU THINK?

    • funny also, knowone really cared when it was kingpin and or electro being black…bad guys i guess are not a stretch when you make them black, just the good guys :)

      • the more popular a character the bigger the chance is people feel protective over that character..
