Who are the four contenders for Dr. Doom in The Fantastic Four?

Mar. 11, 2014by: Niki Stephens

Now that THE FANTASTIC FOUR-SOME has been cast, its time for the villain.

As you may have guessed, the baddie for the flick will indeed be Dr. Doom. Though its so very simple, I love that name. Lately, Ive been seeing Doom in his short statured animated form on THE SUPER HERO SQUAD SHOW which will be much different from the one we will see in the live-action reboot.

Now we have four contenders for the Doom role:

Sam Riley (CONTROL), Eddie Redmayne (LES MISERABLES), Toby Kebbell (ROCKNROLLA), and Domhnall Gleeson (DREDD).

Notice a trend? All men with accents. At one point Jack Huston was on the list for the part but is no longer believed to be involved.

Who would you want? Im going to say Riley or Kebbell. I think it would be kind of cool to see Huston in the part of the baddie. Hes magnificent in BOARDWALK EMPIRE.

If the choice was yours, who would you cast?

Was Jaleel White unavailable?

Great Lord Humungus this thing is going to suck! Is it too late to pull the plug and let the rights revert to Marvel where they belong? This thing is going to make Roger Corman's version look like Masterpiece Theater.

None are particularly exciting

But I think Redmayne or Kebbell would do a decent job from what I've seen of their talent. And I wish everyone would stop calling them teens or babies. They are all in their 30's, so at least find something better to bitch about like how the movie just doesn't inspire any faith. Have to wait on a trailer, but I'm not holding my breath...

None of this is terribly exciting. I liked Kebbell in Rock'n'Rolla, but he didn't strike me as Dr. Doom material. Nor in the terrible Prince of Persia. I don't know who any of the rest of them are.

Really?

I am never the type to say a film will suck without seeing any footage 1st, but this film does have me changing that stance. The trailer had better blow everyone away and be spectacular at this point.

Why?

I wonder if people realize that Michael B Jordan and Kate Mara are older than Jessica Alba and Chris Evans were when they played the roles! Big deal....who cares about the casting? Its not like the first two movies were badass anyway

Wheres the chicks????

I thought they were planning on making Dr. Doom a chick???? I'd honestly rather have a female Doom than have any of these chumps play him. I pretty much lost hope for this flick but I was holding out for, maybe, a decent choice to play Doom but nope....Its freakin sad that I would rather have the Nip/Tuck guy who butchered the role before to come back. Once again Doom will be done a disservice. How much money would it cost Marvel to just buy the FF rights back right now???

Clearly Huston would be top choice here, but

I'm going to have to throw in a vote for Gleeson. Proven chops, the look, and the pedigree. We haven't seen enough of his and this would be a great way to get more.

Lmao, they are really trying their hardest to fuck up the F4

Wow, this is starting to get interesting. I wonder if they are going to cast a new born baby to fill the role of Galactus, or my nephew to play Mole Man.

Seriously... wtf is Fox thinking?

I don't care who they cast, just have him wear the mask the whole movie and get Werner Herzog to dub the voice. On second thought, save that for the next reboot with a better cast.

danny huston? nay.

I mean lets be real here, Danny Huston would NEVER have a shot at being Dr. Doom because clearly no one over the age of 35 is allowed to be in this [link] no one.

This movie is going to fail.There are just so many words to describe the casting.Those four actors are too damn young to play one of my favorite villains Doctor Doom.The casting for this movie is just total shit.Fox has screwed up.

Well this movie is already doomed. 90% of the time super hero films are only good if the villain has been nominated or won an Oscar.

Tweens aren't as familiar with Fantastic Four as older comic-book fans. I'm relatively open-minded but I think they're dipping a little too low with their ages.

Kate Mara and Michael B. Jordan are both older than Jessica Alba and Chris Evans were when the 2005 FF film came out. All the contenders for Dr. Doom are in the same age bracket 31-35 as Julian McMahan was as well. I don't see why everyone thinks they are too young.

Cast talent for talents sake not fan service. Excited for this and can't wait to see Josh Trank own this movie.

also...

the fact the Fox is moving forward with a "dark and serious" Fantastic 4 movie with a tween cast, but still sits on an R-rated Deadpool movie really tells you what they think of their audience.
