The Marvel “Fantastic Four” reboot premieres today with a wide release set for August 7. In the film, and much like the 2005 “Fantastic Four” film, a team of superheroes must learn to harness their powers to take down a familiar enemy — Doctor Doom.
The film features a young cast, with Miles Teller starring as Reed Richards (Mr. Fantastic), Kate Mara as Sue Storm (Invisible Woman), Michael B. Jordan as Johnny Storm (Human Torch) and Jamie Bell as Ben Grimm (The Thing). Toby Kebbell will play Victor Domashev (Doctor Doom).
“Fantastic Four” Budget and Box Office Predictions
Past films in the Fantastic Four franchise have been welcomed with box office success. The 2005 version grossed $154.7 million in box office sales. The 2007 sequel, “Rise of the Silver Surfer,” grossed $132 million, according to Box Office Mojo.
The 2015 “Fantastic Four” reboot cost 20th Century Fox $122 million to make, reports The Hollywood Reporter. The movie is expected to earn around $160 million, according to Entertainment Weekly. Expecting or at least hoping “Fantastic Four” becomes a fan favorite, 20th Century Fox has already announced plans for a sequel slated for a 2017 release.
Kate Mara Net Worth: $10 Million
Actress Kate Mara stars as Sue Storm, alias of superhero Invisible Woman. Mara might be familiar to viewers for her past roles in TV shows like “House of Cards” and “American Horror Story.” She was also in the 2014 film “Transcendence,” in which she starred alongside Johnny Depp. She even had a small role in another Marvel film — “Iron Man 2.”
2015 is set to be a breakout year for Kate Mara, who stars in three films due for release after “Fantastic Four.” Hostage drama “Captive” opens in September and sci-fi thrillers “The Martian” and “Man Down” are set for release in October. With big films attached to her name, it’s no wonder Kate Mara’s net worth is an impressive $10 million, according to CelebrityNetWorth.
Miles Teller Net Worth: $2 Million
With a breakout lead performance in the 2014 Oscar-winning “Whiplash,” Miles Teller strengthened his status as one of the stars to watch in 2015. With roles in the “Divergent” franchise, as well as in other films in the young adult genre — like “The Spectacular Now,” “21 & Over” and “That Awkward Moment” — it’s no surprise Miles Teller’s net worth has grown to $2 million.
Michael B. Jordan Net Worth: $1 Million
Johnny Storm, or the Human Torch, has classically been portrayed as a blonde-haired, blue-eyed hero, but the announcement that Michael B. Jordan had been cast in the role signified a departure. Although the decision received some backlash from fans who viewed the character’s race change as a needless deviation from comic book canon, Stan Lee — the creator of the Fantastic Four — supported the decision.
Michael B. Jordan, who started acting at a young age, is sure to command his role as Johnny Storm. The actor has appeared in numerous critically-acclaimed TV shows like “The Wire,” “Friday Night Lights” and “Parenthood.” Filmgoers will recognize him from his roles in “Chronicle” and “That Awkward Moment,” in which he starred alongside Miles Teller. Michael B. Jordan’s net worth is estimated at $1 million.
Jamie Bell Net Worth: $11 Million
Among the actors portraying the superheroes of “Fantastic Four,” Jamie Bell’s net worth is the highest at $11 million, according to CelebrityNetWorth. The actor started his acting career early. He held the titular role, for instance, in 2000’s “Billy Elliot” and 2005’s “King Kong.”
Most recently, Bell has appeared in “The Adventures of Tintin” and “Snowpiercer.” The actor is also currently starring in AMC’s “TURN: Washington’s Spies.”
The British actor is set to portray Ben Grimm in “Fantastic Four,” whose superhero alias is The Thing. Bell also has two films slated for release in 2016 — the “Tintin” sequel and the thriller “6 Days,” which centers on the 1980 siege of the Iranian Embassy in London.
Toby Kebbell Net Worth: $17 Million
Last among the cast is Toby Kebbell, who portrays Victor Domashev, a new take on the classic Doctor Doom villain from the Fantastic Four franchise. Kebbel is best known for recent roles in 2012’s “Wrath of the Titans” and 2014’s “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes.”
Besides “Fantastic Four,” Kebbell is set to appear in another upcoming film from a franchise — “Warcraft.” Toby Kebbell’s net worth has reached an impressive $17 million, according to CelebrityGlory.com.
