Last summer, “Creed” star Michael B. Jordan appeared as Johnny Storm in Fox’s “Fantastic Four” reboot, which failed at the box off and with critics. In an interview with IGN, he discussed how he views the film now and weighed in on whether or not a sequel was in the works.
“I look back at the film as a learning experience,” he shared. “Every film isn’t going to be a home run. Everybody involved didn’t set out to make a film that didn’t work. I think everybody wants to do the best job possible. I think it was a big education for me to realize that things aren’t in your control, and you can do everything you’re supposed to do. You can give 110% every day, and the movie still not work out. But that may or may not be on you and you’ve got to be OK with that.”
As to whether or not he will be returning in the role for a sequel film, he said, “I’m not sure, man… As much as we want and we like these characters, and we like these worlds and stuff like that, we [actors] have such a small say in what goes on behind closed doors — all that other, extra stuff. Also, I love the character. I’m a big comic book fan, and that’s one of the reasons I wanted to do it in the first place. We’ll see what happens.”
