Captain America star happy to be passing Human Torch to Michael B. Jordan...

Chris Evans, current Captain America and The Avengers star and former Human Torch in The Fantastic Four, has been glowing in his praise for Michael B. Jordan who has been cast in his old role in the forthcoming reboot of the franchise. While on the pomotional tour for Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Evans told the New York Daily News of his delight to see the role passed on to such a talented actor...

It's so funny, you almost feel precious over the role that you don't want someone else to do it. But when you hear someone phenomenal is doing it, it's very exciting like you almost can't wait... I couldn't even give that guy any advice if I wanted, that guy is so good. It's exciting to see what he's going to do, because I know he's going to reinvent it in a way that I could never have imagined

Jordan has been signed up by Fox for both The Fantastic Four and its planned 2017 follow-up alongside Kate Mara, Jamie Bell and Miles Teller.
