Now that the main characters in the planner reboot of Fantastic have been cast, attention has turned to who will be the villain. It seems like Fox wants someone from the UK or Ireland for the role of Doctor Doom, as TheWrap reports that the shortlist is down to Domhnall Gleeson (About Time), Eddie Redmayne (Les Miserables), Sam Riley (Maleficent) and Toby Kebbell (Wrath of the Titans). Jack Huston has previously been mentioned, but its not known if he is still in the race.
It seems one of them will join Michael B. Jordan as The Human Torch, Miles Teller as Mr. Fantastic, Kate Mara as The Invisible Woman and Jamie Bell as The Thing. Whoever it is will have to sign up soon, as production is due to begin this April in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.
The movie is currently due out June 2015.
