Details are beginning to materialize regarding Josh Trank’s upcoming The Fantastic Four with star Toby Kebbell today spilling the beans about the altered origins of his iconic comic book villain, Doctor Doom. Here are quotes from his interview with Collider.
“The thing I really concentrated on for Doctor Doom — or just ‘Doom,’ as we’ve got him — was the voice. Even on the animated series, they never got his voice what I imagined it to be when I read the comics as a little boy. What I spent the majority of my time doing was not just being a fan, but being a bit of pedant and making sure I got exactly what I always wanted to see.”
Kebbell got a bit more specific, revealing that there’s no Victor Von Doom (or Van Damme, for that matter). Instead, he’s playing an iteration named Victor Domashev who is an “anti-social programmer” and posts under the online handle “Doom.”
Also starring Miles Teller, Kate Mara, Jamie Bell, Michael B. Jordan and Tim Blake Nelson, The Fantastic Four hits the big screen August 7, 2015. Check back for more information as it becomes available and look for our full interview with Kebbell closer to Dawn of the Planet of the Apes‘s Blu-ray release on December 9th.
