Michael B. Jordan Addresses 'Fantastic Four' Casting Criticisms

Michael B. Jordan poses on the carpet at the premiere of his film Fruitvale Station at Cinema Barberini on Thursday (March 6) in Rome, Italy.

The 27-year-old actor wore some chic casual clothes earlier in the day while attending a photo call at the Hotel Bernini.

At the press conference, Michael addressed criticism of his casting in the new Fantastic Four movie.

“It was expected. You kinda know going into it that people are used to seeing something one way, it’s a continuity thing more than anything. People don’t like change too much,” Michael said (via Cinefilos.it). “But annoyed? Eh, you just kinda accept it, it is what it is. You can’t make everybody happy. You just gotta accept that and know. I’m an actor, I have to do my job. I’m going to do my job the best I can and the way I’ve been doing it my entire life, my entire career. I grew up a comic book guy, I read comic books as a kid growing up, and the Fantastic Four/Human Torch is one of my favorite characters so I’m going to give it my everything. I can’t wait. I don’t really let it bother me at all. I just want to go into it and do the best job I can. We’ll see what happens.”

FYI: Michael is wearing a Louis Vuitton suit and Prada shoes at the premiere. He wore a Bellerose sweater, Hudson jeans, and Calvin Klein shoes to the photo call.
