The Fantastic Four has found the four actors who will suit up as the 4-person superhero squad; however, there is still a key component missing…a villain to antagonize everyone. According to The Wrap, the people at Twentieth Century Fox are inching closer to finding the perfect person to suit up as the nefarious Doctor Doom.
The entertainment site reports that there are four actors that remain on the short list to take up the role; Domhnall Gleeson, Toby Kebbell, Eddie Redmayne, and Sam Riley.
Gleeson was last seen in the romantic drama About Time. Kebbell on the other hand is about to be seen in the upcoming action adventure Dawn of the Planet of the Apes. Eddie Redmayne was last seen in Les Misérables as Marius. He will also be starring in the latest sci-fi adventure from Andy Wachowski and Lana Wachowski. Last, but certainly not least, Riley is currently working on Disney’s Maleficent.
Whichever actor, whether one of these or not, will be joining Divergent’s Miles Teller, who has been cast in the role of Reed Richards, also known as Mr. Fantastic. The Fantastic Four also stars Jamie Bell as Ben Grimm a.k.a. The Thing, Michael B. Jordan as Johnny Storm a.k.a. The Human Torch, and Kate Mara who will be playing the role of Sue Storm a.k.a. The Invisible Woman.
The Fantastic Four is scheduled to be released on June 19, 2015.
