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)

The Fantastic Four reboot casting department has decided whom they’d like to see in spandex unitards. As rumored, Michael B. Jordan will play the Human Torch. Kate Mara is the lead choice for Invisible Woman Sue Storm, with Miles Teller as Mr. Fantastic Reed Richards, and Jamie Bell as the Thing. The deals are not finalized yet but it is reported that both Jordan and Bell are pretty much locked in. Which is pretty rude toward Zac Efron, who would have appreciated at least an invite to the That Awkward Moment reunion.

Although he can continue to hold out hope as it remains unknown who will play Dr. Doom. The role has been somewhat narrowed down as director Josh Trank recently confirmed the classic villain will continue to have a penis. (Deadline)

In keeping with the current trend of upsetting fanboys, it seems that Josh Trank‘s Fantastic Four reboot will also be turning some classic characters on their ear.

First, the good news. Emmy Rossum is now in the mix to play Sue Storm. As of right now, it’s between her, Margot Robbie and Kate Mara. All fine choices. It’s just a shame they’ll spend a third of the movie invisible.

Now, the news that will cause asthma attacks. THR also reports that Dr. Doom will once again return as the villain. However, this time the filmmakers are not opposed to switching it up by having Dr. Doom played by a woman who has boobs and everything. I don’t want to come off as sexist by disliking this so I’ll caution that I’m only reacting from a pragmatic place. But, I’m sorry, this makes no sense. Can women even BE doctors?

Whichever gender they decide upon, it’s said that the studio is looking for a big name. Thus, the stage is set for a major Renee Zellweger comeback.
