‘Fantastic Four': Dr. Doom Short List Down to 4 Actors With Accents (Exclusive)

20th Century Fox and director Josh Trank have narrowed down their villain search to four rising stars with accents

Now that 20th Century Fox and director Josh Trank have their “Fantastic Four” in place, they've turned their attention to the movie's villain — Dr. Doom.

Four rising stars remain on the short-list, all of whom have accents and are 30-34 years old. A fifth contender, Jack Huston, was rumored to be up for Dr. Doom several weeks ago, though it's unclear whether he remains in the mix.

One of them is expected to antagonize superheroes Mr. Fantastic (Miles Teller), the Human Torch (Michael B. Jordan), the Invisible Woman (Kate Mara) and the Thing (Jamie Bell).

20th Century Fox, which declined comment, will release “Fantastic Four” in June 2015.

      I do – BADLY. This entire FF movie is turning into one giant clusterfuck. Give the rights to FF back to Marvel, Fox! You suck at doing this!

        This is going to be like a drunk driver causing a traffic accident with fatalities: everybody warned them, everybody knew it was going to happen, nobody listened, and people are going to show up just to see how bad it is.

    Try as I might, I honestly can't fathom how these casting decisions get made. Not just this film, but Batman, hell, this list goes on and on. This is what happens when corporations try to manage art.
