4 Actors Being Considered For Dr. Doom In “Fantastic Four” Movie
Four actors are in the running to play villain Dr. Doom in the new Fantastic Four movie.
They are Domhnall Gleeson, Toby Kebell, Eddie Redmayne and Sam Riley.
Dr. Doom is a longtime arch enemy of the Fantastic Four.
Based on the Marvel comics long running series, the Fantastic Four franchise is being given a massive re-boot by the studio. In its two previous movies, released in 2005 and 2007, Ioan Gruffudd, Jessica Alba, Michael Chiklis and Chris Evans played the famous family, and made the world safe for the forces of light and goodness.
The studio recently announced that Jamie Bell, Michael B. Jordan, Kate Mara and Miles Teller will play the titular characters in the next outing.
In all honesty, we’re really not sure why the studio sees fit to give this franchise a “re-boot” at this point in time. After all, the previous movies were not made that long ago. Why not make another chapter involving Alba, Chiklis et al? Seems it would also make more sense as there is now an established fanbase that identifies with this ensemble.
For those unfamiliar with the franchise, The Fantastic Four concerns four astronauts who all acquire super powers after accidentally being zapped with a huge dose of cosmic rays. From then on, they form a superhero group to fight the forces of evil.
