For all you fans of the hit HBO series The Wire, this will be some fun casting news. It was recently announced that Reg E. Cathey has been cast as Dr. Storm, the father of Sue (Kate Mara) and Johnny (Michael B. Jordan), in the upcoming Fantastic Four reboot.
Cathey was on The Wire from 2006-2008. If you haven’t seen the series, you might recognize him from movies like Seven and American Psycho.
I am not really sold on this reboot yet. I wish Fox would have let the rights go back to Marvel. I think Fantastic Four and all other Marvel characters should be under the Marvel umbrella. Well, this isn’t a perfect world, and I will just have to deal with it.
The Fantastic Four also stars Miles Teller and Jamie Bell. It will hit theaters June 15th 2015.
