FANTASTIC FOUR 2: Miles Teller Interested In Potential Sequel

Miles Teller Fantastic Four

Miles Teller says he would be willing to return in Fantastic Four 2. The Whiplash and Divergent star is interested in reprising his role as Reed Richards in a sequel to the 2015 superhero film.

Stating that he loved both the cast and characters, Teller explained his interest in returning is motivated in part by the “interesting” dynamic that exists between himself and them. He also compared it favorably to Marvel‘s Avengers series, where the heroes are forced to work together to strategize ways to fight enemies and save the day:

As for whether the critical reception to Fant4stic has turned him off of the comic book movie genre, Teller emphasized that while he begins with the script, it’s the director who holds the most power over the film in the end. “Obviously you learn more as you go on; for me I’ve really enjoyed the fact that I’ve been able to work in pretty much every genre. There’s a lot of different factors you’re going to take into account. I think script is super important, and director. The director is going to be the most powerful person in terms of what that final product is.”

Despite the backlash, Teller maintains that he would never take on a role without fully commiting to the script and the character. “I can honestly say I’ve never just done something for money; I’d be really embarrassed for something like that to come out, that I had no attachment to the character, no attachment to the script. It takes a while before you’re only working with the best directors, nobody’s career is flawless.”

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.
