With 20th Century Fox’s Fantastic Four having recently cast Miles Teller as Reed Richards/Mr. Fantastic, Kate Mara as Sue Storm/Invisible Woman, Michael B. Jordan as Johnny Storm/Human Torch and Jamie Bell as Ben Grimm/The Thing, now comes some casting news on the film’s ‘big bad,’ Doctor Doom.
Early rumours had fans in a panic when it was suggested that Fox were considering making Doc Doom a female. Well, if this latest speculation is anything to go by, Doctor Doom will be rocking a penis.
The Wrap claims that the role of Victor von Doom is now down to four choices: About Time‘s Domhnall Gleeseon, Wrath of the Titans‘ Toby Kebbell, Les Miserables‘ Eddie Redmayne and On the Road‘s Sam Riley. With Marvel’s famous superhero family now in place, I’d imagine it won’t be long until one of the above is officially announced as Doctor Doom. Personally, I’d always go with Toby Kebbell, but I’m biased as Dead Man’s Shoes is one of my all-time favourite films.
Directed by Chronicle‘s Josh Trank, Fantastic Four is expected to start shooting this month, with a release date of 19th June, 2015 currently set.
