Mason Gooding is reacting to himself being fancast in an upcoming Marvel movie!

Many fans have expressed interest in the 26-year-old Scream VI star playing the Human Torch in the Fantastic Four movie.

If you didn’t know, the new Fantastic Four film is slated for release during Marvel’s Phase 6 release plan. They just kicked off Phase 5 in February!

Check out how Mason reacted inside…

“I try not to think too far forward about what it would be like to be a superhero I’ve admired for so long; I’ve seen Fantastic Four and specifically Human Torch on Twitter,” Mason told Men’s Health. “And that’s ultimately what led me to not be on Twitter as much, because I’ll get so excited about the thought.”

“I’ve always loved, specifically, fire superpowers, whether it was being a firebender in Avatar, or Shinra in Fire Force. So, that particular character was so exciting to see anything about,” he continued. “But I try my best not to get caught up in that, because I will not be able to think about anything else in my day… Whether it’s me or somebody else, I would just be excited to see characters that I feel have been underrepresented up until now getting a true MCU-backed treatment. As a comic book nerd, that’s exciting to me.”

In case you missed it, Mason and his girlfriend made their red carpet debut as a couple this week at the Scream VI premiere in NYC!
