Samira Wiley

  1. Kate Mara, Fantastic Four, 2014.        Marvel wanted the Four back and offered Fox an extension on its Daredevil II plans. No way! In the mix for the third Susan Storm/The Invisible Woman were Wiley (aka Poussey Washington in Orange Is The New Black), Sasha Pieterse, Margot Robbie, Saoirse Ronan, Emmy Rossum, Samira Wiley and director Josh Trank’s favourite: Allison Williams. He then bullied Mara for being the suits’ choice. Film flopped. (Only ever made to save the rights). Hollywood Reporter critic Todd McCarthy slapped it down as “a 100-minute trailer for a movie that never happens.”Marvel icon Stan Lee saw it coming and refused his usual seal-of-approval cameo.
