Fresh on the heels of Disney/Marvel Studios hot new trailer for 'Guardians of the Galaxy' FOX Studios counters with the announcement of the new cast of the 'Fantastic Four' reboot and it's leaving some fans shaking their heads.

Deadline posted this today, "After a long search, Miles Teller, Jamie Bell, Michael B. Jordan and Kate Mara are said to be working on deals to star in the reboot of Marvel's Fantastic Four.

Word is that the contracts are nearing completion but that hasn't stopped new Torch Michael B. Jordan from taking to Instagram and posting the iconic '4' logo.

The new Fantastic Four has a much more young and 'hip' take this time out casting twenty-somethings Jordan as Johnny Storm (aka the Human Torch), Teller as Reed Richards (Mr. Fantastic), Mara as Sue Storm (the Invisible Woman) and Bell as Ben Grimm (the Thing). It will be interesting to see how this casting plays out since Johnny Storm in previous incarnations and in the comics has been a Caucasian character. Will Johnny and Sue Storm be adopted siblings? Will Reed Richards have some grey hair added to his temples?

Simon Kinberg is writing the treatment for the new film while he works on Disney XD's new 'Star Wars Rebels' animated series. His new film for FOX 'X-Men: Days of Future Past' hits theaters this summer. FOX's Fantastic Four is expected to be released June 2015.
