Doctor Doom’s Origin Story In The Upcoming ‘Fantastic Four’ Film May Disappoint

Toby Kebbell, character actor from England who has starred in films like RocknRolla and Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, has finally revealed some details about his version of Marvel villain Doctor Doom in the upcoming Fantastic Four reboot releasing on August 7 of 2015. Here’s what Kebbell had to say about his character in an interview with Collider:

“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.'”

Yes, you read that right. His name is not even Victor Von Doom, and to make it worse he’s an anti-social programmer instead of an influential billionaire. Try your best not to get a bit angry at that hint of news. Kebbell went on to talk about director Josh Trank’s (2012’s Chronicle) style:

“Yeah, it was cool man. Josh, the whole deal, the lo-fi way he did it, the ultra-real. It was just nice to do that. It was nice to be feeling like we had to come to terms with what was given by this incident.”

So to make things a bit more worrisome, the style of the film will come off as “ultra-real.” For those of you who have read the Fantastic Four comic books, you know from first glance that a serious tone isn’t what the source material goes for all that much. Until August 7, 2015, we will have to wait on bated breath and hope that this adaptation may turn out great. Until then, sound back in the comments and let all of us at UTG know what you think. The Fantastic Four stars Miles Teller, Kate Mara, Jamie Bell, Tim Blake Nelson, and Michael B. Jordan.

    This movie will be so bad that it causes intestinal distress in anyone who watches it. I guarantee it.
