This. Just because Spider-Man is an adult in the comics now doesn't mean he should be in the origin movie.

Chris Evans was the perfect Johnny Storm in looks and personality. It was Jessica Alba who looked out of place and completely miscast as Sue. They should have chosen an actress who suited the role and could act instead of the flavor of the month.

When they cast Johnny for the reboot, they should look for someone who can project the same energy and charm that Evans brought to the role. Personally, I liked that they made him a pilot because that made his inclusion in the flight crew logical. Fifty years ago comics fans could accept the idea that a scientist would take his untrained girlfriend and her teenage brother into space, but today that just wouldn't fly.

I agree - Alba was the problem, not Evans, they should have cast her as Crystal instead...

This. Johnny ( and Sue ) needs to be a competent individual going in, not a useless kid sidekick. If the writer can't come up with a better reason for him to be present than "Reed is trying to get in his not-quite-jailbait sis' pants", then they fail out of the starting gate.

I'm neither really for or against the MBJ casting but I don't see how Maria Hill is a similar situation if that's what your implying. This is mostly about fans relying on the looks of the comics.

If Maria Hill was Black all through the comics and Cobie was casted there would have been fan backlash. With Maria Hill though, there is no skin color issue because she's drawn with different skin tones.

Johnny has always been drawn as White. If Johnny Storm was Black in the Ultimates, there would be lil to no backlash about MBJ, just a 616 vs Ultimate story/character debate at most. The ethnicity issue wouldn't be as debatable since all comic fans just pretty much care about is if it was in a comic before film.

I personally think the actor shouldnt be older than 25 when they start filming. And he should definitely not look older than 25. First guy that comes to mind is Hunter Parrish from Weeds.

for me Sue and Johnny need to be cast as a pair...
(who I'd want for either role depends on how well they can pass as siblings, with the other)
an I gotta say hearing McAdams name thrown around the Sue casting thread I wasn't 100 % sold, but, her paired up with this guy... I would totally believe those two as brother/sister (and she is like 9 years older, so he would actually seem like the younger brother)

I like Johnny Storm casting threads. All the suggested actors are always so good looking.

While I thought the Torch looked fine in the other two movies, I would not mind seeing him look a little more like he did in the Kirby comics...

I thought he did have some scientist qualities and mentions now and then in the films...they could make him an intern like Darcy.

I second the Weeds guy...I'm still holding out ridiculous hope for Liam Hemsworth as Balder.
