Had a shred of optimism about the new Fantastic Four? Wait until you hear about Dr. Doom

dr. doomI’ve really tried not to just pile on all the hate with this new “Fantastic Four” movie still threatening to come to theaters next year. There’s been this long sentiment that 20th Century Fox is just holding the license hostage and preventing us from getting an actual good version from Marvel Studios, but with a cast including Michael B. Jordan, Miles Teller and Kate Mara, there was perhaps some longshot that this could be a decent film. Well, Tobey Kebbell, who is playing Dr. Doom, decided to lower your expectations further than that moment you learned Galactus was going to be a dust cloud.

dr.doom movie“Even on the animated series, they never got his voice what I imagined it to be when I read the comics as a little boy… What I spent the majority of my time doing was not just being a fan, but being a bit of pedant and making sure I got exactly what I always wanted to see,” Kebbell told ComingSoon.Net.

In another interview with Collider, Kebbell revealed that this new version of “Doom” is going to make Julian McMahon’s take in

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”.

So.. the best villain in the Marvel Universe is … a social programmer???
Is Dr. Doom really that hard to get right? Ugh (times infinity). Let’s all use the money we were planning to use to buy tickets to “Fantastic Four” and launch a Kickstarter to help Marvel Studios buy back the license because this just sounds absurd.

    Really? I’m starting to think this is a giant swerve and they are really leaking horrible details and are really making a great movie with no shred of this garbage.

  • Seriously, that would be the best trolling ever, but man it already is starting to have a terrible stench to it.

    I dont. I think the actors talking are being honest as I dont think they are acting that good to come up with this stuff. They think this it is a fresh take on a project clearly being fubar to p iss on what marvel wants to get back… and then they will reboot it in 3 years again.

  • I’d love for an actor to come out and just say “this is trash, nothing like the comic, but they’re paying me so I’ve gotta do it.”

    How many times has a movie loosely based on its IP been good? Let’s be honest, google worst movie adaptations and the worst from Catwoman to thunderbirds are all due to binning the rule book and starting from scratch (but with none of the creative genius)

  • So true. Not expecting much from this one at all. Avengers is a departure from the comic, but they got the tone of the characters right. This doesn’t sound like that even a little bit.
