Michael B. Jordan Talks Fantastic Four Costumes: Not Cheesy



It’s learned the Fantastic Four will have some sort of costumes.

Kate Mara, who is playing Invisible Woman, previously hinted the Fantastic Four wouldn’t be wearing costumes stating she didn’t even try on a costume while discussing the movie back in April.

The good news is that now Michael B. Jordan, the new Johnny Storm/Human Torch in the movie, has confirmed a Fantastic Four outfit.

“I think it wasn’t on set, but it was during the fittings when I put on the full outfit and looked at myself in the mirror, and I was like, ‘Oh shit. Game on!’ It was like, this is it! This is what it looks like. This is what it feels like. It felt good,” the actor told the Daily Beast. “Yeah. You can talk about it and discuss it and what not it. But it’s not until you get on set and put on those clothes that you become that person. You kind of check out. Mike checked out. I was playing Johnny Storm. I was doing it. No more talking about it. You gotta be about it.”

Jordan continues talking about the Fantastic Four costumes with Wonderwall.com where he’s questioned about wearing spandex (which actually might not be the case).

“How did I feel about wearing spandex? The costume part wasn’t that bad” he said.”I think we did a really good job at making it modern, new, fresh without going to the cheesy superhero outfits. We didn’t take the easy way out at all. So I didn’t mind it so much.”

“Fantastic Four” has an August 7, 2015 release directed by Josh Trank starring Miles Teller as Reed Richards, Michael B. Jordan as Johnny Storm, Jamie Bell as Ben Grimm,  Kate Mara as Sue Storm and Toby Kebbell as Victor von Doom.
