Actor, Reg E. Cathey from The Wire and House of Cards has been cast as mentor figure Dr. Franklin Storm in the upcoming Fantastic Four reboot. The internet has been in a tizzy since Fox cast sibling Johnny and Sue Storm interracially (Michael B Jordan and Kate Mara respectively).

Since Dr. Franklin is their father, we can now safely assume that Sue is the adopted child.

The cast to Marvel's next new super hero franchise is getting bigger and better. Benedict Cumberbatch, Chiwetel Ejiofor, and Tilda Swinton are already confirmed to star in Marvel's psychadelic, magical movie, Doctor Strange. Now, confirming her casting as the female lead, True Detective star, Rachel McAdams will head to the Scott Derrickson project.

While we still don't know who she'll play, the most likely candidates are Clea, a mystical ruler of a parallel dimension:



Or Morgana Blessing, author and occasional subject of possession by the Sorcerer Supreme:



Both are potential love interests and/or antagonists to Benedict Cumberbatch's former surgeon turned super Sorcerer.

It looks like WB and DC are going the opposite direction Christopher Nolan started in The Dark Knight franchise. For the upcoming, increasingly star-studded, Suicide Squad, director David Ayer has reportedly signed on Lost alum, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje (Mr. Eko) to play Batman villain, Killer Croc.

The reptilian strong-man breaks Nolan's previous, 'no fantastical villains' rule and will bring a fantastical element to the burgeoning DC Cinematic Universe.

Akinnuoye-Agbaje is joining a giant cast featuring Will Smith, Jared Leto, Margot Robbie, Jai Courtney, Cara Delvigne, Joel Kinnamon, Viola Davis, and Raymond Olubowale and Scott Eastwood in unknown roles.

What do you think, is this too many characters for one movie?

You may remember a couple weeks ago when Jon Bernthal was officially announced as The Punisher for Netflix's Daredevil, season 2. Well now another classic Marvel hero, Elektra appears to be joining the crew in Hell's Kitchen as well.

Played by Élodie Yung, Elektra is a trained assassin and former college girlfriend of Matt Murdock. She's also a long running romantic interest for the blind vigilante.



The Marvel Cinematic Universe on Netflix is getting bigger and bigger.
