Kebbell to be Fantastic Four baddie

Toby Kebbell has apparently landed the role of the villain in the Fantastic Four reboot.

The rising star saw off competition from the likes of Jack Huston and Domhnall Gleeson to bag the part of Victor von Doom, aka Doctor Doom, reported Variety.

War Horse actor Toby, 31, looks set to join Michael B Jordan, Kate Mara, Miles Teller and Jamie Bell in the comic book adaptation.

Michael has been cast as Johnny Storm/The Human Torch, Kate will play Sue Storm/The Invisible Woman and Miles will star as Reid Richards/Mr Fantastic.

Jamie is expected to play Ben Grimm/The Thing.

Director Josh Trank is due to start shooting this spring and the film is set to be released in cinemas in June 2015.

Toby next appears in Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes and he also has a role in Warcraft, which is due out in 2016.
