FANTASTIC FOUR

SchmoesKnow reports that Michael B Jordan has been cast as the Human Torch in Josh Trank's "Fantastic Four" reboot. The website reportedly confirmed the long-running rumor with a source inside Jordan's agency. However, it has not yet been officially confirmed, so take this one with a grain of salt -- though it's a far more substantial story than when the rumor began a few months ago.

CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER

Robert Redford spoke with The Associated Press about taking a role in "Captain America: The Winter Soldier."

"It's completely different filmmaking, it's so hi-tech," Redford told AP of the film. "It's so completely different I thought it would be interesting and fun to see what that is -- to be in it, even though it's a smaller part. A significant part, but a smaller part. So, I had that experience. It is different, it was slightly weird."

AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D.

MTV spoke with "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." actors Iain De Caestecker and Elizabeth Henstridge as well as executive producer Jeph Loeb about the series and the relationship between the characters.

"[It's] Definitely that notion of this dysfunctional family," De Caestecker told MTV. "It’s a strange thing, because they’re living on the Bus. That’s their work, but at the same time it’s their place of residence. They have to live with each other, and they’ve been thrown into this environment, which also is a place where you’re in intense situations of danger… It brings people together in situations where you can’t really pay yourself forward well, and see how people react. So they have to very quickly become each other’s support group as well, for different reasons. The different dynamics of each person’s particular character means they’ll react differently."
