Trank Wanted A Black Actress As Sue Storm

Director Josh Trank continues to speak out about his much bashed Fantastic Four adaptation, recently revealing that he almost quit the film due to not being permitted to cast a black actress as Sue Storm. This would have been consistent with the casting of Michael B. Jordan as Johnny Storm, but Trank received “pushback” from studio brass. Kate Mara went on to portray Sue Storm.
