There’s been a lot of negative talk surrounding Fantastic Four and its villain Doctor Doom, played by Toby Kebbell. Several months ago the actor talked about the character saying that he’s a very anti-social programmer who goes by the name of ‘Doom’ on blogging sites. It doesn’t seem like that’s the case anymore.
In an interview with SuperHeroHype, Kebbell sheds some new light on the character he plays saying:
“Yeah, he’s still from the same place, his mother is still a gypsy and done her deals, his father still perished from exposure looking after me. He’s angry. He’s an angry dude. But now he’s in Baxter. He’s bright and he’s trying to make people proud. He found a new father in Dr. Storm, the father of Johnny and adoptive father of Sue.
“I kind of get adopted as well, in a fantastic performance by Reg E. Cathey. And that’s Doom as we see him. He’s a computer technician, a computer scientist. There were rumors he was a hacker or something, but no. Victor Von Doom is who we hope he will be.”
The movie also stars Michael B. Jordan, Kate Mara, Jamie Bell and Miles Teller. Fantastic Four will open in theaters on August 7th.
