‘The Flash’ star casts himself as the human torch of the MCU

May 14, 2022

Jordan Fisher from the flash sees himself as the Human Torch in the MCU. The multi-talented actor plays Bart Allen/Impulse (the son of The Flash’s future) and it looks like he wants to add another superhero to his credits.

Fisher posted an image of himself on Twitter as resident Fantastic Four hotshot Johnny Storm/Human Torch. In the photoshopped image, he’s in a suit, his head aflame and his eyes glowing as he stares into the camera. He posted it with a drooling emoji, as if he fancied the idea.

Bart Allen made his first appearance in the flash season 7, “Heart of the Matter Part 1” and “Part 2” alongside her sister Nora Allen (Jessica Parker Kennedy). Fisher won over many diehard fans who adored the character from the comics or animated series young justice.

Impulse has super speed, like his father, but he tends to act before he thinks and this often gets him into trouble. He’s light-hearted and cracks a lot of jokes, but in his recurring appearances he strives to take things more seriously to become the hero the town needs.

In the comics, Johnny Storm, his sister Sue Storm, Dr. Reed Richards, and Ben Grimm travel through space when exposed to high levels of cosmic energy. Each of them thus develops superpowers and, in the case of Johnny, he acquires the ability to transform his body into flames and to control the fire itself. Johnny has yet to appear in the MCU, but it’s likely fans will see the character soon.

The Fantastic Four team does not yet have an official cast, but after the events of Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness fans have a lot of theories. A The Fantastic Four film is in preparation and the producers of moon knight will produce it for the MCU. With Fisher’s interest in the role and having played a superhero before, he could be up for the enviable role.
