Shameless Star Emmy Rossum Almost Played Susan Storm In Fantastic Four

Emmy Rossum, who appeared in the US version of Shameless as Fiona Gallagher, has spoken of losing the role of Susan Storm in 2015 Fantastic four.

the 2015 Fantastic four restart did not impress the public. While the early iteration of Marvel’s First Family from the early 2000s was met with lukewarm reaction from audiences, Josh Trank’s darker reimagining of one of Marvel’s most optimistic comics was widely regarded as one of the worst movies ever. of superheroes ever made.

Despite its poor reception, the film featured an all-star cast, with the likes of Miles Teller and Michael B. Jordan among its lead actors. The role of Susan Storm, the Invisible Woman, was played by Kate Mara, but Shameless star Emmy Rossum had also auditioned for the role. She recently opened up about the experience of losing a superhero role.

In an interview with Josh Horowitz on his Happy Sad Confused podcast, Emmy Rossum talked about auditioning for the Invisible Woman in 2015 Fantastic four. Rossum revealed the devastation that came with losing a major Marvel role and admits that he “didn’t get the dialogue,” perhaps something he should have hinted the movie wasn’t going to resonate with audiences. She said:

“I don’t get it. Devastated, totally devastated. I remember where I was when I didn’t make it. I was with my now husband on a beach somewhere and I got the call that I didn’t get it, and I was pretty sure I didn’t because I didn’t feel like the screen test went well. I just didn’t get hooked on that character at all. I didn’t get the dialogue, I couldn’t sell it, I was like ‘I don’t know what to do with my lines, I can’t find my here…’

“I think I did [want it]. There’s a part of me that thinks that kind of transformation, when it works, is a lot of fun. When is Iron Manwhen it’s those things that feel really unique, I think it can really work.”

It would probably be better if Emmy Rossum didn’t get involved with Fantastic four, given the film’s top reputation. However, it seems that the actress has an interest in the challenges and opportunities that a role in a superhero movie presents her, so perhaps fans will see her appear in another Marvel movie at some point. Of course, Marvel Studios currently has a Fantastic four reboot in the works, so maybe there’s still a chance that Emmy Rossum will take on the role of Susan Storm.

Here is the synopsis of 2015 Fantastic four:

A contemporary reimagining of Marvel’s original and longest-running superhero team, it centers on four young outsiders who teleport into a dangerous alternate universe, altering their physical form in shocking ways. With their lives irrevocably upended, the team must learn to harness their overwhelming new abilities and work together to save Earth from a former friend turned enemy.
