'Fantastic Four' Costumes Aren't 'Cheesy Superhero Outfits, Michael B. Jordan Says

Miles Teller's recent assurance that Fox's Fantastic Four reboot will be "different in every way" from its 2005 predecessor extends to the costumes worn by Marvel's First Family.

Asked during an interview with Wonderwall how he felt about donning the Human Torch's tight-fitting threads, actor Michael B. Jordan said "the costume part wasn't that bad."

"I think we did a really good job at making it modern, new, fresh without going to the cheesy superhero outfits," he said. "We didn't take the easy way out at all. So I didn't mind it so much."

Jordan elaborated on that to The Daily Beast, recalling his first time in the costume.

"I think it wasn't on set, but it was during the fittings when I put on the full outfit and looked at myself in the mirror, and I was like, 'Oh shit. Game on!'" he said. "It was like, this is it! This is what it looks like. This is what it feels like. It felt good. [...] You can talk about it and discuss it and what not it. But it's not until you get on set and put on those clothes that you become that person. You kind of check out. Mike checked out. I was playing Johnny Storm. I was doing it. No more talking about it. You gotta be about it."

Directed by Josh Trank, Fantastic Four also stars Kate Mara and Jamie Bell. It opens Aug. 7, 2015.
