Four relatively unknown actors with accents have reportedly made 20th Century Fox's shortlist for The Fantastic Four villain role of Victor von Doom, aka Dr. Doom. Check out the list after the jump
With Miles Teller, Kate Mara, Michael B. Jordan, and Jamie Bell all officially locked in to play Marvel's new first family, The Fantastic Four reboot is now looking to cast its main villain, Dr. Victor von Doom. According to sources of The Wrap, 20th Century Fox and director Josh Trank have narrowed down their search to four: Sam Riley (Control), Eddie Redmayne (Les Misérables), Toby Kebbell (Wrath of the Titans), and Domhnall Gleeson (Dredd). It's also reported that Jack Huston was once considered a fifth contender, however, he is "no longer believed" to be in contention.
Three of the Dr. Doom candidates are British while Gleeson is Irish, and their ages range 30 to 34; considerably older than Mr. Fantastic's, Human Torch's and The Thing's actors. What do you think?
The Fantastic Four stars Miles Teller, Kate Mara, Michael B. Jordan, and Jamie Bell, and is directed by Josh Trank from a story and screenplay by Jeremy Slater and Simon Kinberg. With principal photography starting on March 31, Marvel's First Family is scheduled to return on June 19, 2015.
