More From Toby Kebbell On Playing 'Victor Domashev' In FANTASTIC FOUR

Some seemed to think the Dawn of the Planet Of The Apes actor was joking around when he spilled the details of Josh Trank's new take on Dr. Doom, but he confirms it all in another video interview with IGN. Kebbell also talks a bit more about the voice he'll be using for the character..

Earlier tonight, actor Toby Kebbell (Dead Man's Shoes, Wrath Of The Titans, Warcraft) sent fans into a right tizzy when he revealed a few details about his take on Doctor Doom in Josh Trank's upcoming Fantastic Four reboot. It turns out this incarnation of the classic Marvel villain will be a computer programmer named Victor Domashev, and he will use the blogger ID "Doom". A lot of people were already on the fence about this movie, and this will surely have knocked 'em off on the "this sounds bloody rubbish" side of the garden. Here is the video interview, in which Kebbel also spills some new info on the voice he'll be using for Domashev. He says that was the one thing he felt he could fully influence, and though he's playing him with an American accent, he wanted to add in a foreign inflection.

I always try to take a "wait and see" approach with any comic book movie because more often than not, they turn out a lot better than these type of leaked details make them sound. That being said, it is difficult not to be apprehensive when hearing that they've altered a character in such a radical way. What do you guys think? Willing to give Mr. Domashev a chance, or have you washed your hands of this reboot? Sound off in the usual place.
