When the “Fantastic Four” reboot cast was revealed last month, FF fans were livid that an African-American will be playing “The Human Torch”. The actor cast in the controversial role Michael B. Jordan offers his take on the situation.

“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,” Jordan said at a recent event in Rome. “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,” the actor, who earned acclaim this year for his turn in the Indie Spirit-winning film “Fruitvale Station,” continued. “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.”

I think hes gonna be awesome. But I understand die hard fans being upset. It is quite a shake-up. But it’s a more inclusive storyline this time around.
