FANTASTIC FOUR Director Josh Trank Shoots Down Female Dr. Doom Rumor
We only hear about the Fantastic Four reboot when Josh Trank is denying the latest casting rumor, or a purportedly "fake" synopsis that had 20th Century Fox's lawyers in such a tizzy. So, it comes as no surprise that Trank has "debunked" THR's female Dr. Doom rumor.
Yesterday, The Hollywood Reporter reported that their sources had heard quite the juicy rumor: 20th Century Fox and Josh Trank ("Chronicle") are considering casting a female to play Doctor Doom (Victor von Doom) in their Fantastic Four reboot. Like clockwork, Josh Trank hopped onto his Twitter account and issued yet another "denial." Which is something that he has done quite often in past. Most notably, he did it for the casting rumors involving Michael B. Jordan ("Fruitvale Station"), Miles Teller ("Whiplash"), Josh Gad ("Frozen") and the rumored synopsis that 20th Century Fox issued cease and desist notices for. Despite Trank's denials most of the trades believe Michael B. Jordan is a lock to be Johnny Storm/Human Torch and that Miles Teller is up for the role of Mr. Fantastic/Reed Richards. Funny enough, besides tweeting Trank denying the Dr. Doom rumor, he also admitted that "one" of his earlier denials was not accurate. You can view those tweets below.
