Casting Rumor: Toby Kebbell to play Doctor Doom in Fantastic Four

It looks like Fox has cast its villain for their upcoming Fantastic Four reboot.  Variety reports that Toby Kebbell will be playing Victor Von Doom better known as Doctor Doom.  According to Variety several newcomers were after the role but Kebbell nabbed it.

There has been a lot of talk about this reboot.  It has been a long time coming (Fox are very close to losing the rights to Marvel) and there have been a lot of fears that Fox are rushing this so it is good to see casting coming along.  Personally I wouldn’t mind the rights to go back to Marvel, there are some great storylines in the comics involving the Fantastic Four and the Avengers and I would love to see that on the big screen but it will be interesting to see what Fox can do.

The Fantastic Four is scheduled to realese on 19th June 2015.  It will be directed by Josh Trank (Chronicle) and stars Miles Teller (Divergent, That Awkward moment), Kate Mara (House of Cards, American Horror Story), Michael B. Jordan (Chronicle, Friday Night Lights) and Jamie Bell (Billy Elliot, King Kong).
