The stage was set for some truly bizarre casting but, in the end, The Fantastic Four went with a relative unknown to play the heavy. Toby Kebbell has been cast as Doctor Doom in the upcoming reboot and to be honest he doesn’t even look old enough to be a doctor. Kebbell is best known for Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time and The Sorcerer’s Apprentice and looking like a menacing version of Adam Goldberg.
Director Josh Trank shot down early rumors that Doctor Doom would be played by a female lady with girl parts and switched up Johnny Storm’s racial background. With that in mind, he had license to go any way he wanted with Doom, who might actually be a nurse. We still know very little. (Variety)
