Miles Teller’s performance in the indie film “Whiplash” earned him loads of praises for his acting, and now that he’s shifting to the mainstream superhero scene, he explains the reason why he took on the role of Mr. Fantastic. Read on to know more about the details of this scoop.
According to Comicbook.com, Teller already had experience in the franchise as he played as a supporting character in the first movie adaptation of Veronica Roth’s dystopian YA book series “Divergent.” Now, he joins Michael B. Jordan, Kate Mara and Jamie Bell as the leading actors for the reboot of “Fantastic Four” franchise. He also exemplifies it’s the main reason why he signed on for the role.
According to Digital Spy, the actor signed on for the role of Mr. Fantastic because it had more appeal to him more than a standalone superhero production. It was aside from the fact that helmsman Josh Trank exuded his best efforts to let the actor sign on for the film. Teller remarked that joining the franchise would start off to be a bit hazy. But he knew that things will work out eventually in the end, especially with the entire team in on it.
“If it was Spider-Man, that entire movie’s on my shoulders and that’s a more isolating experience. I don’t know if I would be into it, but the fact that it’s a movie that I knew we’d share… the superhero world, that’s the whole different animal. That’s a pretty serious commitment,” Teller said in the Digital Spy article.
Looking at how Miles Teller easily Jives in a grouping, Screen Rant highlighted his gift of easily getting it down with the group dynamics. And seeing how each of the leading actors in the reboot are rising stars, their tandem to recreate a cohesive unit, that will be projected on the big screen, would be highly appropriate. After all, “Fantastic Four” is not all about one man, it’s about four individuals coming together for the greater good of mankind. The movie premieres on Aug. 7, 2015.
