‘Fantastic Four’ backlash was tough: Miles Teller
London: Actor Miles Teller says the criticism of “Fantastic Four” was tough and he wouldn’t wish it on any other movie.
The 29-year-old actor portrayed Mr Fantastic in the 2015 Marvel remake.
Though he enjoyed working alongside the likes of Kate Mara, Jamie Bell and Michael B Jordan on the film, he says the fact it was universally panned was “tough”, especially because it was always going to be difficult to live up to fan expectations, reported Contactmusic.
“I wasn’t starving to be a superhero. Although at the time – it was a couple of years ago – if you’re a young man in this business, a part of you is saying, ‘I need to get a Marvel project; I need to be a superhero’, because you see all these actors you respect being put in that world,” Teller said.
“I would not have wanted to be Spider-Man because I wouldn’t want the whole thing riding on my shoulders. I enjoyed the ensemble element of ‘Fantastic Four’.
“I wouldn’t wish what happened to us on another movie.
It’s tough, because there are such high expectations. Comic books mean so much to a lot of people.
