We're getting a Fantastic Four reboot next year, of which we know next to nothing about other than the cast skews young, they've given Michael B Jordan the role of Jonny Storm, and it's going to be "grittier and more real"
If you've been unfortunate enough to sit through one of the Fantastic Four movies, you know that the series is the redheaded stepchild of the Marvel movie universe. The franchise, which debuted waaaaaay back in 1961, has never been treated kindly at the hands of film makers. You need only look at the Jessica Alba-led 2000s movies, which ended up turning badass world-destroyer Galactus into a cloudy space sneeze
The series' iconic villain, Doctor Doom, will neither be a doctor nor named doom. What is he? Let's let the actor playing him, Toby Kebbell, reveal the twist:
"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'".
Cool...so, Victor Von Motherfucking Doom is now a blogger? A Reddit moderator? Knee-jerk, fanboy reactions aside, how will Doom become Doom if he's not horribly scarred and forced to live behind the iron veil that is Doom. Here's to hoping this turns out better than it sounds.
