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.
