Reg E. CatheyWith production having officially started this week for The Fantastic Four, The Hollywood Reporter brings word that "The Wire" and "House of Cards" actor Reg E. Cathey has joined the cast of the film as Dr. Franklin Storm, the father of Sue (Kate Mara) and Johnny Storm (Michael B. Jordan).

Accused of murder and thought to be dead in the first volume of the comic series, Dr. Storm actually operated on and saved his daughter's life when she suffered a life threatening injury at the hands of the Mole Man. Following his actual death just one issue later, Sue and Reed named their first child Franklin after him. In Marvel's "Ultimate" universe, however, Dr. Storm is partially responsible for the creation of the Fantastic Four. Could we be seeing this version of the character on the big screen?

Jamie Bell, Jordan, Mara and Miles Teller will play the titular team in the upcoming film, which will also see Toby Kebbell as Victor Von Doom and Tim Blake Nelson as Harvey Elder, aka The Mole Man. Directed by Josh Trank, The Fantastic Four is set for release on June 19, 2015.
