Another ‘Fantastic Four’ Rumor Debunked: Josh Gad Isn’t The Thing

It’s getting difficult to sort out the facts from the fiction where Fox’s Fantastic Four reboot is concerned.

Days after a “totally false” synopsis hit the web, a new casting rumor reared its head, suggesting that Book of Mormon actor Josh Gad was in line to play Ben Grimm, alias The Thing. Director Josh Trank has denied the rumor, saying it’s “not true.” Likewise, Gad debunked the buzz with some snarky comments of his own:

As of now, the only thing official about the Fantastic Four reboot’s cast is that nothing is official. Michael B. Jordan is rumored to play Johnny Storm, but Fox and Trank haven’t confirmed that.

Fantastic Four is scheduled for release on June 19, 2015.
