Remember a few weeks ago when four names were apparently linked to the Doc Doom role in Josh Trank’s The Fantastic Four? Remember how I suggested Toby Kebbell for the role? Well, it turns out I’ve got quite the pull in Hollywood. Yep, Kebbell as nabbed the role of Dr. Victor von Doom in Trank’s FF reboot.
I’m a huge fan of Kebbell since first seeing him in the stunning Dead Man’s Shoes. If you’ve not seen it, hunt it down – it’s seriously one of my favourite films of the last 10 years or so.
Kebbell joins a cast that includes 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.
20th Century Fox’s The Fantastic Four is currently set for a 19th June, 2015 release.
