Via: Cinefios.it -"I'm an actor, I have to do my job."
Speaking at an event in Rome - Michael B. Jordan addressed some of the criticisms leveled at the film, specifically the outcry over his casting...
"It was expected. You kinda know going into it that people are used to seeing something one way, it's a continuity thing more than anything. People don't like change too much. But annoyed? Eh, you just kinda accept it, it is what it is. You can't make everybody happy. You just gotta accept that and know. I'm an actor, I have to do my job. I'm going to do my job the best I can and the way I've been doing it my entire life, my entire career. I grew up a comic book guy, I read comic books as a kid growing up, and the Fantastic Four/Human Torch is one of my favorite characters so I'm going to give it my everything. I can't wait. I don't really let it bother me at all. I just want to go into it and do the best job I can. We'll see what happens."
Michael B. Jordan along with the rest of his cast-members could surprise us with an astounding performance, I have high hopes for this movie! The dumbest thing you can do as a movie goer is to go into the movie theatre hoping it sucks, looking like a jackass. By doing something as stupid as that you're wasting your OWN money and time, go in with a positive attitude hoping for the best not the worst.
Kevin Feige (Producer and President of Production at Marvel Studios) has mentioned numerous of times just because Marvel owns a right to a certain character that doesn't mean he'll use the character in a movie. It's much better to have the characters in multiple studios..if they all went to Marvel Studios then you wouldn't have all your superhero movies coming out so soon, they would take years and you fanboys are already an impatient group. .
And who says that Marvel won't ever have a box-office flop!
Michael continues on why the role was best for him....
"The Human Torch is, 'yknow, that's fun. That's going to be a good time…To play a superhero? That's dreams coming true. It's not going to be hard. It's going to be fun to kind of show a side of me that I don't really get to show on screen, to be a little bit lighter, funnier, just more personality. It's going to be fun."
The Fantastic Four is currently set for a release on June 19, 2015. Watch the full interview below..
