It’s almost clobberin’ time. Twentieth Century Fox is in serious talks with a quartet of in-demand actors to cast its new Fantastic Four. According to The Wrap, Miles Teller, Kate Mara, Jamie Bell, and Michael B. Jordan are close to signing on for the superhero reboot from director Josh Trank. Jordan, who worked with Trank on Chronicle, has long been rumored to play Johnny Storm, the Human Torch, but Fox declined to confirm that a deal for the Fruitvale Station actor, or the other three stars, had been reached — yet.

Teller, who starred opposite Jordan in That Awkward Moment, is considered the frontrunner for Reed Richards, a.k.a. Mr. Fantastic. Mara (House of Cards) reportedly recently auditioned for the role of Sue Storm, a.k.a. the Invisible Woman, and Bell (AMC’s upcoming series, Turn) is linked to the CG-enhanced rock-hulk, the Thing, a.k.a. Ben Grimm.

Don’t expect Fox to take too much more time to announce their superheros. Fantastic Four already has a release date of June 19, 2015.
