One of the biggest box office flops of 2015 was Fox's attempt at a reboot of the superhero franchise Fantastic Four.

Starring Miles Teller, Kate Mara, Michael B. Jordan and Jamie Bell, the film was reportedly a victim of the edit with producers and director Josh Trank (Chronicle) vocal about the studio's interference with the end product.

In the unlikely circumstance a sequel gets the green light, however, one such actor who would be open to a return is Whiplash actor Teller who played Reed Richards AKA Mr Fantastic.

Speaking about whether he'd appear in a follow-up, he exclusively told Jo Blo: “Yeah, for sure. I loved the cast, I loved the characters.

“I think it’s such an interesting dynamic. I love how much they really need to rely on each other. This Avengers thing, they’ve kind of created their own Fantastic Four in a way, Marvel’s first family. Their powers can’t just exist on their own, you need Thor to do this, the Hulk to do his thing.

"So yeah, absolutely, I would do another one.”

Teller will next star alongside Jonah Hill in War Dogs (26 August) as an arms dealers who supplies weapons for U.S. allies in Afghanistan. Following that, he'll appear in biographical boxing film Bleed For This which arrives in UK cinemas on 2 December.
