Jessica Alba might show traces of her “Fantastic Four” character’s superpowers and turn invisible when it comes time for the “Fantastic Four” reboot, but the “Valentine’s Day” actress is proud of her stint as Sue Storm, one of the first female superheroes to arrive on the big screen.
In their last screen incarnation, “Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer,” Marvel’s favorite superhero family fended off Galactus. Given her potential roles in “Sin City 2” and an adaptation of the French comic book series “The Insiders,” it’s no stretch to believe Alba will soon be kicking butt onscreen again.
“I don’t know anything about it,” Alba said of the “Fantastic Four” reboot during a “Valentine’s Day” dinner with MTV Movies Editor Joshua Horowitz.
While rumors of a darker “Fantastic Four” film probably don’t mean we’re any closer to seeing Sue Storm’s possessed alter ego Malice, Alba is pleased with her two installments to the series thus far — even if the studio starts from scratch as expected.
“Our [‘Fantastic Four’] made a lot of money and kids loved it,” said Alba. “And little boys and little girls look up to a female as a superhero. To be one of the first — if not the first — in this generation to do that, I was pretty honored.”
“So, I’m happy that’s out there,” she said.
