Michael B. Jordan Talks STAR WARS, FANTASTIC FOUR and INDEPENDENCE DAY 2

If there was ever a doubt that Michael B. Jordan was an incredible actor, that question was put to rest in a big way after he deeply pulled at our heartstrings in "Frutivale Station". Truly an Academy Award worthy performance, the actor is now in high demand to star in some very big projects.

We heard murmurs a couple of months ago that Jordan was up for the role of Johnny Storm/The Human Torch in Josh Trank's "Fantastic Four" reboot. They of course worked together on the critical hit "Chronicle" and became good friends, so it would make sense that we could see them working together again soon.

Roland Emmerich is finally bringing us an "Independence Day" sequel after nearly a decade and Jordan revealed that he is being considered for a role. His less-than-enthused response regarding that was, "if that came true, that would be cool." Perhaps he's just trying to play it cool and not reveal too much.

It is also being reported now that he could be up for one of the biggest and most beloved franchises of all-time; "Star Wars"! While the only confirmed cast members at this time include returnees Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher and Mark Hamill, Jordan spoke out about what it could mean.

He stated, "I mean, everybody’s going in on this project. They’re trying to figure out what they want. That’s another incredible franchise. It’s pretty crazy! …We’ll see how it happens. I don’t know how I can do everything."

Jordan is very talented and seems like a really great and down to earth guy, so I'm really happy that his career is taking off.

If Jordan could only take one of the roles, which do you think it should be? Let us know in the comments section below!

"Fantastic Four" will hit AMC Theatres on March 6th, 2015.

"ID Forever: Part 1" will hit on July 3rd, 2015.

"Star Wars: Episode VII" will hit in 2015.

    I see one that's great enough to stand on his own in a flick and I see two generic Super Heroes below him played by descent actors that will suck of no fault of their own. DC Entertainment and Zack piss off Snyder have destroyed any chance of a good Superman flick. It's generic and badly delivered to screen. What a tragedy to finally get to see the big 3 on screen after all these years only to watch them in piss poor dark generic looking outfits and rewritten backgrounds. FAILURE! DC Entertainment needs to pull their heads out of their asses and give us something good besides Dark Knight and Batman. To my point GO MARVEL!!!!!! May we all be laughing at DC Comics in the end for playing this awful prank on the true fans.

    Marvel has nothing to worry about. DC Entertainment has already killed Superman in this so called "Man of Steel" series of movies. Does anyone recall how the first one sucked? That movie in no way other then title had the tone of Superman. DC has shot themselves in the foot far before the release date against Marvel that knows how to build on charactors, respect them, and the fans. Before all this bull crap with revamping I was 100% behind DC Comics. They have proved one bad film over another that Batman is the only one in the JLA they can get right. This knockoff Superman is and was terrible! Wonder Woman will be just as bad or worse being that DC Comics likes to screw around with her origin and costume the most out of any DC charactor since creation. They simply just don't know what the heck they are doing or how to stay true to the roots of these heroes who have endured for 70 plus years. MOS2 may make it at the box office but mark my words it will not in any way be because it's a great flick. Just the hopefuls having to justify to themselves right and wrongs of the contents. It will suck! Line up for Captain America 3 and catch this flick in the red box.
