Toby Kebbell talks ‘The Fantastic Four,’ new origin for Dr Doom

Toby Kebbell previewed his role as Doctor Doom in the upcoming reboot, The Fantastic Four, and revealed that there is a drastic new origin story for the character.

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’.”

Director Josh Trank is taking the franchise is some different territory, but the Dawn of the Planet of the Apes is totally on board.

“Yeah, it was cool man,” continues Kebbell to Collider . “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.”

Doom is one of the most popular villains in all of comic books, usually ranked as one of the Top 5 Greatest Villains in fact. Fox and Trank changing the details may seem sketchy to some fans.

There are several different storylines surrounding the popular FF villain, so the general public may not be locked into a certain mythos and reject Trank’s new ideas.

Directed by Trank and co-starring Michael B. Jordan, Kate Mara, Miles Teller and Jamie Bell, the film also stars Tim Blake Nelson, and Reg E. Cathey.

The Fantastic Four will open in theaters on June 19, 2015 and a sequel is already set for a summer 2017 release.
