Michael B. Jordan Expertly Responds to Offensive 'Fantastic Four' Question

Michael B. Jordan is all smiles while stopping by the Univision Studios for a talk show appearance on Friday (July 31) in Miami, Fla.

The 28-year-old actor was joined for the appearance by his Fantastic Four co-stars Kate Mara and Jamie Bell.

Earlier in the week, Michael and Kate did an interview for a radio station and were asked about their characters Johnny Storm and Sue Storm being siblings. “From what I’ve seen, you’re brother and sister. Am I missing something?” an interviewer asked them.

When they said “no,” the reporter said, “But you’re white and you’re black. How does that happen?”

Michael gave a perfect response (via Buzzfeed): “They could be raised as brother and sister. There’s a whole bunch of family dynamics that could be without the ‘obvious adoption.’”

    The movie is ruined by the casting of a nig!

    Since 1961 when the Fantastic Four were created, the Invisible Woman and the Human Torch have been biological white siblings. Never has there been other “family dynamics” or “adoption”.

    He should have turned down the role and not ruined the movie.

      Your comment sounds very ignorant. Not only are you small minded, but you’re also someone who doesn’t know when their opinion is not needed. Times have changed and maybe you should too because not many people will agree or appreciate what you’re saying. And as a black person I think that you need to take a nice walk, and rethink your previous statements.
