With Toby Kebbell now confirmed to be playing Victor von Doom is Josh Trank’s upcoming The Fantastic Four, Nerdist is now reporting that Doctor Doom will not be alone. Yes, he’ll be bringing his Doombots with him. It’s said that the Doombost will be used as drones and decoys that can be controlled telekinetically.
The Doombots first appeared in 1962’s Fantastic Four #5, and they’re exact replicas of Doc Doom, often causing confusion and used in sticky situations by Doom.
As well as Kebbell as Victor von Doom, The Fantastic Four features Miler 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.
The Fantastic Four is currently set for a 19th June, 2015 release.
