Toby Kebbell Cast as Doctor Doom in FANTASTIC FOUR
FOX and director Josh Trank have cast Toby Kebbell in the villainous role of Doctor Doom for their Fantastic Four reboot. Kebbell has had a good amount of strong supporting roles for films such as Wrath of the Titans, Rock-n-Rolla, War Horse, The East, and Legendary Pictures' upcoming adaptation of Warcraft.
Kebbell will join Miles Teller, Kate Mara, Michael B. Jordan, and Jamie Bell in the reboot that is scheduled to shoot this spring. The movie will be based on the Marvel comic The Ultimate Fantastic Four, and if you couldn't tell from the casting, the story will focus on younger versions of the characters. It makes sense that Kebbell got cast, especially since he's already worked with Kick-Ass and X-Men: First Class director Matthew Vaughn, who is producing the film.
A lot of fans still aren't on board with this film. In fact, I've been seeing a lot of hate for it. I want it to be good, especially since they brought together an incredibly talented young cast to help bring it to life.
The Fantastic Four is set to be released on June 19th, 2015, with a sequel coming in the summer of 2017.
