Toby Kebbell will play Doctor Doom in Josh Trank's Fantastic Four

Apr. 1, 2014by:

I know what day it is, but before you say anything, this is a legit story.

Remember that list of contenders we had last month for the role of Doctor Doom in the FANTASTIC FOUR reboot? Well, theyve finally chosen the one, and it was one of the guys I suspected it would beToby Kebbell.

Kebbell is definitely on the rise. I always just refer to him as Johnny Quid from ROCKNROLLA even though hes been in a ton of movie since then. His name has been dropped in quite a few shortlists. His next film is DAWN OF THE PLANET OF THE APES in which he plays Koba, an alpha ape.

We dont know much about the plot at this point, but many of us already know about the adventures of the FANTASTIC FOUR. This reboot lead by director Josh Trank will feature a younger version of the characters with a cast that includes Miles Teller, Kate Mara, Michael B. Jordan and Jamie Bell.

THE FANTASTIC FOUR hits theaters on June 19, 2015 with a sequel to roll out on Summer 2017.

Just remember guys?..

Just like Ghost Rider 2 and Punisher Warzone if the movie opens with x% less of the films budget Marvel automatically gets the rights back.

That's a worse case scenerio ONLY RED BOX'S SCHMOES! The more negative press before filming the more likely they'll bail on it!

Someone needs to be fired

This is easily the most underwhelming Superhero movie to date. Keep expecting them to announce Verne Troyner being cast as Herbie the robot. Every casting announcement to date has left me less and less anxious to see a movie. Not one of the characters seems to be cast right yet. Good news I will save $9.00 when the movie finally comes out.

paradox

This movie is a real scientific paradox:
The more great actors sign to play in it, the worst the movie gets...
So sad !

I will always know him for RocknRolla. Just wish they would make The Real RocknRolla. As for him being cast as Victor Von Doom, I am entirely unsure, and as for the rest of the cast.

I'm no Fox fan...but jeez...is the hate on here over the top. At least go and watch it first....f-it, wait for the trailer first. May be it's coz I waited all my childhood to get properly funded Marvel based comic book movies that I'm easy...but I'll be in the line with my kid to watch this...as I was when the previous two FF movies came out. Hey, how bad can it be...can't be any worse then Green Lantern, right? I saw that in the cinema too with a strong suspicion that it would suck. I was

There is nothing really wrong with any of the actors they have cast so far - if it was a fantastic four TV show dealing with their early years. But for a big franchise blockbuster? No. Just seems like half assed browsing through the affordable B-lister phone book.

you do have take to into account that they're doing a total reboot with a new angle, seeing these characters as young people who get transformed. With that casting unknowns is smart, it makes it more believable -- it isn't just 'oh like Samuel L Jackson got powers and now he's Samuel L Jackson with powers in this superhero movie'. Plus it's not like these actors are total unknowns, it's clear the cast they chose is full of 'up and comers', actors with experience that are on the rise. I prefer

I prefer this to just being like 'is Johnny Depp available? How about Brad Pitt? Jude Law? DiCaprio?' etc'

Not Interested.

I actually don't think he's a bad choice. Despite all the terrible castings made for this movie, the one I cannot accept is Miles Teller. He is absolutely terrible and cannot buy him as Mr. Fantastic. Can't do it!

Can we go back to pretending this isn't happening?

FOX just sucks the life out of everything. Is this F4 or an episode of Girls? This cast is just so blatantly an april fools joke 2 years in the making. I really hope next april fools day they drop a curtain and reveal this movie was cancelled long ago.

I know I'm judging when nothing has even been filmed just yet and I do not care. I want nothing more than Marvel getting the rights back, unfortunately it looks like we'll be stuck with endless reboots and re-imaginings for a good long while...

It's getting harder to be apart of this culture. I just don't understand the amount of hate on this one. I'm no super-fan of the fantastic four characters, and I'm not saying this movie will certainly be a hit hit, but we don't know what it's gonna be. I mean really nothing. Has it even started filming? It's got some interesting choices. I'd pick the guy who directed Chronicle to direct a big budget super hero movie before the guy who directed 500 Days Of Summer. They certainly didn't

It's got some interesting choices. I'd pick the guy who directed Chronicle to direct a big budget super hero movie before the guy who directed 500 Days Of Summer. They certainly didn't make obvious casting choices, and that's prolly gonna make or break it - I get that. The Storm siblings/actors are older (and really better) than they were in the first version. I've only seen Teller in The Spectacular Now, and he, and it, is...well, spectacular. Certainly good enough to give this a shot. Fruitvale Station? First movie to tear me up since prolly Hotel Rwanda. Chronicle is good enough to make me interested in the directors next movie. I know Fox has a bad record with these projects, but they seem to be doing better than when the first two films came out. I have no reason to think this movie is going to be incredible, and it very well could bomb, but all those odd castings could click together really well. Ppl are just saying all this shit ab them being so young, but they really aren't. Some strange choices for sure, but which ones are so bad that they offend you? And lastly, has anybody even READ a fantastic four comic book in the last like...18 months? You all do realize, that the thing, the human torch, and mr and mrs fantastic aren't even in the fucking comics right now? They literally have a Katy Perry like pop star who wears a Thing super costume. So don't tell me it's bc dude is fucking black.

I fucking loved him in Rocknrolla

He's certainly not who I'd pick but he's a great actor. This guy and Michael B. Jordan are the only ones who i think MIGHT do well in their rolls. However, I think this movie is going to be complete dogshit.

This is total misdirection

You're only meant to think he's Dr. Doom, until the Fantastic Four catch the real Dr. Doom and unmask him, and it turns out to be old man Jenkins, who owns the old abandoned amusement park down by the lake. He tells the fantastic four "I would have gotten away with my plan if it wasn't for you meddling teenagers" right before they leave in their van.
