While promoting the DVD and Blu-Ray release of Dawn of the Planet of the Apes actor Toby Kebbell also spilled the beans on on his upcoming superhero movie The Fantastic Four where he plays the evil Victor Von Doom...or so we thought. While speaking to Frosty of Collider the actor reveals that the origin story on Doctor Doom has been changed completely from the classic comic. Instead of being a handsome genius scientist Victor will now be a anti-social nerd computer programmer named Victor Domashev who goes by the computer-handle "Doom"
He’s Victor Domashev, not Victor Von Doom in our story. And I’m sure I’ll be sent to jail for telling you that. The Doom in ours—I’m a programmer. Very anti-social programmer. And on blogging sites I’m “Doom”.Now while many thought he was simply messing with movie sites on this massive tidbit he re-affirms theses claims in a separate IGN interview. In both interviews he does go onto talk about the accent he will give Domashev:
I’m excited to see it too, and my nerves really…The only thing I can tease you about is what I worked on most was the voice because nobody—even in the cartoons, when I was watching them I was like, “So where’s he from?” There’s a mild change and I’ll tell you because of our history.
