Josh Trank’s “Fantastic Four” reboot isn’t out until next year, but it’s never too early to start bashing the film. Ready?
Actor Toby Kebbell (“Dawn of the Planet of the Apes”) is playing The Fantastic Four’s archnemesis, Doctor Doom, kinda. Speaking in an interview with Collider, Kebbell explained that Doom is not the ruler of Latveria and that his name isn’t even Victor von Doom. Instead, the “Doom” handle becomes attached to the character because of his online activities:
“He’s Victor Domashev, not Victor von Doom in our story. And I’m sure I’ll be sent to jail for telling you that. The Doom in ours—I’m a programmer. Very anti-social programmer. And on blogging sites I’m ‘Doom.’ “
20th Century Fox has yet to release any official images or footage from the film, but considering the amount of rage this reboot provokes, maybe Fox should release something. This new “Fantastic Four” opens in theaters on August 7th, 2015.
