Michael B. Jordan 'geeked out' about Fantastic Four casting

May 7 2014, 12:10am CDT | by

Michael B. Jordan ''geeked out'' when he was cast in the 'Fantastic Four' reboot.

The 27-year-old actor will play the Human Torch - a character who can absorb fire into his own body and is able to fly - in the forthcoming film and insists he and writer/director Josh Trank, who he previously worked with on 2011's 'Chronicle', acted like they were discussing their next ''science project'' when they were in talks about the production.

Talking to vibe.com, he enthused: I was like 'Oh shit. Man, that is ridic-- really? You want me to play that guy? Okay, cool.' It was just us two guys, two fanboys, just geeking out over the possibilities, or how it's going to be, and what we should do here, what we should do there, and the ideas we had for it. It just like two best friends just sitting there talking about our next science project. It was a lot of fun, a lot of excitement. I was excited. I was geeked.''

Although Jordan wants to make his portrayal unique he admits there are certain elements of the beloved superhero which he must stay true to.

He added: ''There are certain characteristics that people look for in the Human Torch that makes him unique. You gotta respect the past a little bit, and you also gotta respect the present and the future and give your own take.''

He will be joined by Jamie Bell as Ben Grimm aka The Thing, Miles Teller as Mr. Fantastic and Kate Mara as the Invisible Girl.
