“Flame on!” Ryan Kwanten as the Human Torch?

February 28, 2010 by  

On comicbookmovie.com, fansite member LEEE777 posted his opinions on who he’d re-cast for the “Fantastic Four ” movie.

Based on the comic book character, super hero Johnny Storm (the Human Torch), in addition to flying, has the powers of generating flames and surrounding himself with them.

“He can engulf his entire body in flames, is able to fly, can absorb fire harmlessly into his own body and can control any nearby fire by sheer force of will. “Flame on!”, which the Torch customarily shouts when activating his full-body flame effect, has become his catchphrase.”

Stating that, when compared to his beautiful and compassionate sister, Johnny Storm is brash and impetuous, perhaps LEEE777 had in mind Ryan Kwanten in his “True Blood” role as Jason Stackhouse when he wrote, “No brainer really, Ryan is Human Torch.”

Should there ever be a remake of “Fantastic Four,” fans would probably find Ryan a very believable human torch.  Flame on!
