The cast grows…
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Reg E. Cathey (The Wire) has been cast as Dr. Franklin Storm, the father of Sue (Kate Mara) and Johnny Storm (Michael B. Jordan) in the reboot of The Fantastic Four. At this time, it is unknown which origin they will use for Dr. Franklin Storm.
In the original comic series, Dr. Storm was accused of murder and thought to be dead. He actually operated on and saved his daughter's life when she suffered a life threatening injury at the hands of the Mole Man.
In Marvel's "Ultimate" universe, Dr. Storm is partially responsible for the creation of the Fantastic Four.
The film opens on June 19th, 2015 and stars Jamie Bell, Jordan, Mara and Miles Teller as the Fantastic Four, Toby Kebbell as Victor Von Doom and Tim Blake Nelson as Harvey Elder, aka The Mole Man.
