FANTASTIC FOUR 2: Kate Mara Open To Returning As Sue Storm

Kate Mara Fantastic Four

Kate Mara says she is interested in doing a Fantastic Four sequel. The Brokeback Mountain and House of Cards actress expressed hope for an opportunity to reprise the role of Sue Storm at some point.

Confiding that all of her Fantastic Four co-stars “felt the same way” about continuing the series, Mara noted that the future of the franchise is uncertain at the moment, but said that she’s still holding out for a sequel. This makes her the second cast member to voice support for a new Fantastic Four film, with Mr. Fantastic actor Miles Teller previously sharing that he would love a chance to reprise his role as well.

Of course, Mara and Teller are far from the only ones trying to bring the beloved superhero team back to the big screen:

Even still, “Fantastic Four” producer and co-writer Simon Kinberg still believes there’s potential for the sequel with Mara and the rest of the cast. “We want to make another Fantastic Four movie. We love that cast — I mean if I were to say to you now Michael B. Jordan and Miles Teller, and Kate [Mara] and Jamie [Bell] are great actors — we love that cast,” Kinberg said in May. “I love the comic, I mean I love it almost as much as X-Men.” Earlier this month Miles Teller expressed similar sentiments about returning for another go as Reed Richards should a sequel move forward.

With the original “Fantastic Four” having an estimated production budget of $120 million and only making an estimated $168 million worldwide, it remains unlikely fans of Marvel’s first family will be seeing a sequel any time soon.

When I'm not working towards my certificate in Radio and Television/Video Production at Fullerton College, I enjoy reading (horror, science fiction, and historical/political nonfiction are particular favorites), participating in my school's TV and theatre clubs, attending movie screenings, plays, concerts, and other events, and trying to come up with pithy things to say on social media. Believe it or not, there are occasions where I find time to write for my own leisure.
