According to The Wrap, Teller is "in contention" for the role of Reed Richards, a.k.a. the stretching Mr. Fantastic. And though Trank later took to Twitter to deny the report, MTV News' Josh Horowitz had to ask Teller about the rumor during VMA All Access Experience.
"Dude, I don't know. I have no idea," Teller said of the "Fantastic Four" rumor. "I think at some point you just have to play a superhero. That's the world we're living in right now. I mean, they're getting snatched up left and right. I would love to be in 'Fantastic Four.' That would be something I would be very proud to be a part of and happy to do. As far as this whole rumor thing, I don't know."
