Doctor Doom Gets A New Origin And Last Name In Fantastic Four Reboot

Doctor Doom Toby Kebbell

One thing is for sure the Fantastic Four story being told in Fox’s upcoming reboot appears to be vastly different than the previous movies. In an interview with Collider, Toby Kebbell revealed that Doctor Doom has a different origin in the Fantastic Four reboot, and his last name isn’t even Doom.

In what Kebbell describes as a mild change, he said, “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”.

In regards to how Victor Domashev fits into the overall picture, Kebbell explained, “Yeah, it was cool man. Josh, the whole deal, the lo-fi way he did it, the ultra-real. It was just nice to do that. It was nice to be feeling like we had to come to terms with what was given by this incident.”

Fantastic Four is scheduled to open in movie theaters on August 7, 2015.

  1. so basically josh trask, simon kinberg and fox are making dr. doom an angry 4chan blogger/internet troll in this flim.epic fail...

  2. I'm not going to judge this film until I see it. 

    That said, everything is shaping up to be a hot steaming pile of crap, with the actors being discouraged from reading the comics and thus unaware of the source material, and me cringing every time news is released. 

  3. Can't wait until someone defends this...

  4. Well, first it was changing the origins of Johnny and Sue Storm to fit their racial-agenda....and NOW THIS!? F**k that....I am OFFICIALLY boycotting this movie, since it IS going to be a giant, colossal, steaming pile of S**T!!! F-YOU FOX! Just sell the property BACK to Marvel and stop SH**TING all over our beloved heroes!!!!

  5. They KNOW they can't - THIS kind of crap and sh**ting all over the COMIC BOOK SOURCE MATERIAL is completely indefensible.....AND unforgivable. I hope they LOSE money on this turd of a flick....
