Miles Teller Talks About Portraying 'Mister Fantatsic''s Powers In FANTASTIC FOUR

Whiplash star Miles Teller comments here about talking to advisers on the set of Josh Trank's Fantastic Four to ensure that he got all of Reed Richards' scientific lingo correct, and drops some intriguing details about how Mister Fantastic's powers will be portrayed...

Josh Trank's Fantastic Four reboot has been causing a lot of controversy, something which was evident after more details about the movie found their way online yesterday. Empire Magazine also caught up with Miles Teller to talk about what to expect from his take on Reed Richards, and it definitely sounds like he'll be as smart as his comic book counterpart! "It was good talking with our advisors on set, whether it's the quantum physics stuff or biomechanics," he says. "I always want to know enough about the stuff before I say it. But I'm on layman's terms with the science. I'm a layman's Reed Richards!" Don't take that too literally folks! As for how fans should expect to see Mister Fantastic's powers portrayed in this version, it does sound like it will be a little less cartoonish than the previous movies and the comics. "If he's this gummy guy slinging around, it looks ridiculous," the actor claimed before adding: "What does that feel like for a young guy, to have no control over his body?" What do you guys think?
