New ‘Fantastic Four’ Movie Gets Its Doctor Doom In Toby Kebbell

We’ve known the lineup of the titular Fantastic Four from the upcoming movie for almost two months now, but people have been guessing for some time who would play the team’s arch-nemesis, Victor von Doom.

Rumors that Dr. Doom could have been a woman have turned out to just be rumors. Variety reports that 20th Century Fox has cast Toby Kebbell, who has played roles in Prince of Persia, War Horse, Wrath of the Titans and Ridley Scott’s The Counselor, will be the new movie version of the masked supervillain.

Kebbell will join the already-cast Miles Teller (Mr. Fantastic), Kate Mara (The Invisible Woman), Michael B. Jordan (The Human Torch) and Jamie Bell (The Thing) when shooting starts up this spring.

The English Kebbell is a thin fellow and pretty young (31), which doesn’t necessarily make him an imposing figure, but he does have one of history’s greatest villains on his resume. He played John Wilkes Booth in the 2010 historical film The Conspirator.

With this news and the recent announcement that Jesse Eisenberg will play Lex Luthor in Man of Steel 2, the next couple years will be a banner time for thin, young supervillains in movies.

The Fantastic Four is scheduled for release June 19, 2015, with a sequel already slated for 2017.
