Jessica Alba claims she doesn't mind who plays her character Sue Storm in the next 'Fantastic Four' movie because the role doesn't belong to her

Jessica Alba claims she doesn't mind who plays her character Sue Storm in the next 'Fantastic Four' movie.

The 32-year-old actress portrayed the invisible woman in the last two film adaptations of the comic book tales, but she will not be involved in the upcoming reboot as Kate Mara has been cast in the role.

When asked how she feels about Mara playing Sue, Alba replied: "I don't have any sort of real attachment to anything like that. I'm like, the more the better, I don't really have any idea. It's not like I created the comic book. I think Stan Lee [the co-creator of 'Fantastic Four'] should have a say in who plays Sue."

The blonde beauty also claimed she wasn't even aware of who had been cast as her replacement because she doesn't follow news.

She is quoted by the Belfast Telegraph newspaper as saying: "I don't read entertainment news so I'm not aware of it, but I love that comic book and it's such a great story about family and staying together.

"Morally, it's nice to have that series out in the world for young people to watch that. It's so positive. There's a lot of negativity out there and I really love the core of what that comic book is about. The more that's out there the better, I think it's great."

'Fantastic Four' is scheduled for release on June 19, 2015.

This adaptation of the classic comic book delivers yet another story about how a team of superheroes develop their freakish abilities, but it's humourless, drab and filled with self-important speeches about saving the world. Tim Story's 2005 and 2007 Fantastic Four films may have set the bar low, but Trank barely clears it.
