Toby Kebbell who is all set to play Doctor Doom in Josh Trank’s “Fantastic Four” would like to be a part of Marvel Cinematic Universe. In his recent discussion with Screen Rant, the British actor said that he really wants an opportunity to take on Thor and all other characters in Marvel Universe.
“They’re going to sue me, but look: Can someone at Marvel and someone at Fox talk, and with Doom, just lend him out, like football? You can have him for the World Cup, that’s it! Then just let me go -- let me go and destroy Thor, for goodness sake. I’d love to work with those boys,” he said.
Kebbell’s character is the villain of Marvel’s first family and in the comics he plots with Loki to manipulate Thor. He also mutilates some Asgardians and converts them into cyborgs. Thor engages in a battle with him but is unable to beat him due to his Destroyer Armor. If Kebbell’s version of Doctor Doom is introduced in Marvel films it will be interesting to see how his character shapes up. Meanwhile, for “Fantastic Four” Kebbell has worked on the voice of his character.
“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,” he told Collider.
Doctor Doom will be an anti-social programmer and will have a website called Doom. The film opens Aug. 7 and also stars Miles Teller, Michael B. Jordan, Kate Mara, Jamie Bell, Reg E. Cathey and Tim Blake Nelson. Simon Kinberg, Jeremy Slater and Trank have written the screenplay based on “Fantastic Four” by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby.
