Yesterday a rumor hit the Internet suggesting that Doctor Doom could be played by a woman in the upcoming Fantastic Four reboot. The director of the film, Josh Trank, addressed the rumor on Twitter saying,
"The THR gender speculation is also bullshit. Next."
For the record, Trank also said that the leaked synopsis for the film was false, but then the Fox Legal team sent out an e-mail telling everyone to remove the synopsis from their sites. That pretty much told us it was the real deal. He even denied Michael B. Jordan being up for Johnny Storm, but now he's the only one officially attached to the project. So when Trank says the rumor is false, who knows what to believe. He did send out a follow up Tweet though, saying...
"All of the rumors I've debunked so far were really false, except for one of them."
I guess we'll just have to wait and see.
