Fantastic Four Reboot Changes Doctor Doom’s Origins


In a recent interview with Collider, actor Toby Kebell talked about his upcoming role as Doctor Doom in the movie reboot of The Fantastic Four. The key sticking point was the reveal that the character’s origin story will be drastically changed for the movie:

“The only thing I can tease you about is what I worked on most was the voice,” begins Kebbell in an interview with Collider. “Even in the cartoons, when I was watching them I was like, ‘So where’s he from?’ There’s a mild change and I’ll tell you because of our history…”

“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’.”

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

Of course, we always have to take comic book movie teasers with a grain of salt, even if it’s coming from actors involved in the project. Still, it feels kind of odd turning the scientist/mage/dictator into a disgruntled blogger.
