Exciting news from the world of Marvel: Michael B. Jordan has been cast as Johnny Storm, aka. the Human Torch, in the Fantastic Four reboot!

It looks like he'll do a fantastic job, and this is probably the biggest example of color-blind casting since (or including) Idris Elba as Heimdall. Kate Mara is an interesting choice for Sue Storm though; I don't know if they're going to try to explain the race differential or just ignore it, because some families have different skin tones and that's that.

Anyway, the only other thing I have to add is that who knew they were making a Fantastic Four reboot? Here's hoping it goes a lot better than the last two.
