Who will play Susan Storm?

Meanwhile Saoirse Ronan, Kate Mara and Margot Robbie are being tested for Susan Storm AKA Mrs. Fantastic.

Michael B. Jordan is the only actor currently being mentioned as a possibility to play Johnny Storm, aka the Human Torch

Currently only Michael B. Jordan is the only actor being mentioned as a possibility to play Johnny Storm, aka the Human Torch, but that could change. “Chronicle” helmer Josh Trank is on board to direct, hoping to do for “Fantastic Four” what Fox recently did with the “X-Men” franchise — reinvigorate the series with a group of younger, rising stars and build the films around them.

What do you think of the shortlist of actors? Comment below with your choices.
