After all the hubbub, the dust finally settled and Josh Trank’s Fantastic Four reboot got the cast more or less everyone expected it to—Miles Teller will be Reed Richards/ Mr. Fantastic, Kate Mara will be Sue Storm-Richards/ Invisible Woman, Michael B. Jordan will be Johnny Storm/ Human Torch, and Jamie Bell will be Ben Grimm/ The Thing. But who would be the film’s improbably named villain, Doctor Doom? Well, now we have an answer.
Actor Toby Kebbell (War Horse, Wrath of the Titans, The Sorcerer’s Apprentice, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes) will star as Victor von Doom, which is somehow even worse than Doctor Doom, but hey, this is a movie with a guy made of rock, a guy covered in fire, an invisible lady, and a really stretchy guy. And somewhere down the line, there may be an alien with silver skin who surfs through the universe, feeding a really big guy in a weird helmet whole planets. So a villain named Doctor Doom, hey, what can you do?
The Fantastic Four is set for a 2015 release date.
