Toby Kebbell Talks FANTASTIC FOUR Failure; "The Fans Aren't Wrong"

Fantastic Four star Toby Kebbell talks here for the first time about his experience playing Doctor Doom, weighing in on the way fans reacted to the reboot and dropping some interesting remarks about the behind the scenes issues which plagued the Josh Trank helmed release...


 
"I was disappointed, but the fans aren't wrong. The fans want what they want to see and if they don't get satisfaction, they let you know. I appreciate that as a performer. My job is to come in and perform as best I can, and hopefully be directed in that path, and I felt like I was. I felt like the film was going to go well. It didn't turn out that the fans felt that way, so their reaction is honest, I can only appreciate honesty."

"I don't know if I learned anything from Doom apart from perhaps when I see something I don't agree with, to voice that immediately. I think it's important. As an actor, you're conscious that your career is at stake with each job, especially on these larger productions. A film like that comes out, and I'm being sent maybe four scripts in a week, and those scripts go to zero when it doesn't come out successful, so that actively affects my career. I think it's vitally important that if there's a problem on set, that it's voiced and we solve it there and I think that collaboration is very important. Not to say that didn't happen on set, but the collaboration is vital and if we don't do that, then we suffer."


During his scenes as Victor Von Doom, Tobey Kebbell was a highlight of Fantastic Four, and it was really in the second half that his Doctor Doom was transformed into a one dimensional villain. Regardless, you can tell that the British actor is being as diplomatic as possible here about his experience working on the reboot, though much of what he says in this interview is very telling. Here's hoping the talented Black Mirror alum fares better in Warcraft: The Beginning next year, eh?
