Fantastic Four Reboot Finds Its Bad Guy

Variety reports unknown Toby Kebbell has been offered the role of Doctor Doom in the upcoming Fantastic Four reboot. Doom is a super genius, sorcerer, and the Four's archenemy. In the 2005 incarnation of the adaptation, he was played by Julian McMahon. Kebbell would be joining a cast that already includes Michael B. Jordan (the Human Torch), Kate Mara (Invisible Woman), Miles Teller (Mr. Fantastic Reed Richards), and Jamie Bell (The Thing). That's a pretty cool group to hang out with, even if they're no Michael Chiklis.
