    This should be interesting. Excluding dummy answers like "Literally anyone else!!", if you had to cast a teenage FF (we might as well make it fair), who would you have chosen instead of the current cast?

    Personally, while I'm okay with Mara and Bell in their respective roles, I would like to see Donald Glover instead of MBJ for the Torch (if we're casting black, Glover is much better at comedy) and...I'll have to think about my choice for Reed, but I'm sure there are much better ones than Miles Teller.

    I said teenage FF. If Trank has to deal with it, we should too.

    I wouldn't cast a Teenage FF film.It's absurd to have space explorers who are teenagers.

    I'm sure that you can come up with an adequate list from the Disney Channel kid factory.

    You shouldn't make it just Teenage FF. If would be more fair if people provided a re-cast of both Teenage and Classic FF.

    Yeah Teenage FF is pretty hard to cast because in most incarnations they're older.

    Sarah Paulson is very underrated so it's nice to see her on someone's cast.

    it's absurd to have civilians be space explorers. so i guess Johnny Storm and Sue wouldn't be part of your FF.

    I just remembered that Jack O'Connell (Calisto from 300: Rise of an Empire) was one of the guys rumored for Reed Richards before Teller got the role. So my official fancast, if I had to go with teenagers, would be:

    Jack O'Connell as Reed Richards

    [​IMG]

    Jena Malone as Sue Storm

    [​IMG]

    Donald Glover as Johnny Storm (Trank started it, and Glover would be a much better choice IMO):

    [​IMG]

    And Christian Cooke (Magic City) as Ben Grimm:

    Okay, fine, cast older if you want. I just thought casting younger would be more of a challenge.

    Binge watched Chuck over the holidays and kept picturing Levi, Strahovski and Baldwin as the FF with some random blond kid as Johnny.
