“Fruitvale Station” star Michael B. Jordan makes one hot Human Torch *pun intended.* After dreaming about Michael’s clothes melting away and revealing his chiseled chest, we finally got some visuals to “The Fantastic Four” re-imagining that has chicks losing their ish and racists’ panties in a bunch.
In case you missed it, some really ignorant people were upset a Black man was cast as the human torch. Michael, who is such a class act, responded saying:
“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.”
“The Fantastic Four” hits theaters in 3D August 7, 2015.
