Michael B. Jordan Reveals He Was Up For Harry Osborn And Falcon Roles - HEROES4US

Michael B. Jordan
Reveals He Was Up
 Harry Osborn And Falcon Roles 
 Michael B. Jordan still refuses to confirm or deny persistent chatter that he'll be playing the Human Torch in Josh Trank's "Fantastic Four" reboot. However, in a recent interview with The Daily Beast, Jordan says that he was up for the role of Harry Osborn in Marc Webb's sequel to "The Amazing Spider-Man," a role that went to his "Chronicle" co-star Dane DeHaan. 

He also confirms that he read for the role of Sam "Falcon" Wilson in "Captain America: The Winter Soldier, " a role that went to Anthony Mackie. What that should tell you is that the talented young actor is definitely gunning for a comic book movie role and that he most likely IS Johnny Storm. It would be a racial change for the fiery Fantastic Four member, one that's led to a lot of discussion around these parts. Jordan is aware of the controversy and comments,

"There just aren’t that many," in terms of roles for black actors. He continued, "With superheroes, a lot of those comics were created before the 1960s, so they weren’t going to have a black man save America. So I think it’s more of a continuity thing now. With more generic superheroes, why can’t you have a black, Asian, Hispanic actor play the role? Hopefully, in my lifetime, we’ll see more black superheroes."
