In hindsight, not having taken part in Fantastic 4 could be considered as a source of pride: Josh Trank’s film, as we know, turned out to be a sensational flop in box office and critics, but Emmy Rossum certainly could not have known this when she despaired of not getting the role of Susan Storm.
While Kate Mara herself remembers the terrible atmosphere on the set of Fantastic 4, in fact, the star of Shameless admits that at the time he took rather badly his failure to join the cast alongside Miles Teller: “I didn’t get the part. Devastated, I was truly devastated. I was with my future husband at the beach and got the call that I knew I didn’t get the part, but I was pretty sure about that because the screen tests they hadn’t gone very well” were the words of the actress.
Rossum then continued: “I couldn’t fully get into character. I didn’t understand the dialogue, I wasn’t believable, I was like, ‘I don’t know what to do with these lines of dialogue.’ However I wish I had. There’s a part of me that thinks this transformation thing is a lot of fun when it works. When it comes to Iron Man, one of those cases where something unique comes out, I think it could work“.
What do you think? The presence of Emmy Rossum could he have given the film an edge or are we still talking about an epic failure? Tell us yours in the comments! Miles Teller, meanwhile, talked about the evolution of post-Fantastic 4 cinecomics.
