Tim Blake Nelson Set for Fantastic Four Role
Actor set for role as Harvel Elder

There's been no shortage of rumour and speculation surrounding director Josh Trank's recently confirmed reboot of comic book staple The Fantastic Four, and the latest whispers to emerge suggest that actor Tim Blake Nelson (Lincoln, The Incredible Hulk, Syriana) is deep in discussions to take on the role of outcast scientist Harvel Elder.

Shunned by society because of his physical appearance, Elder moves underground, eventually becoming Mole Man - however that's not going to happen in this first Fantastic Four movie, but instead we'll be introduced to the character of Elder, with the movie setting him up to be a future antagonist down the line.

Already The Fantastic Four has managed to put together a very impressive group of acting talent, including Miles Teller (Mr. Fantastic), Jamie Bell (The Thing), Kate Mara (The Invisible Woman), Michael B. Jordan (The Human Torch) and Toby Kebbell (Victor von Doom), and is set to hit theatres on June 19th of next year.
