Comic Book Movie is reporting that 20th Century Fox is interested in Stephen Moyer (“True Blood”) to play Dr. Doom in the next Fantastic Four movie. The site also confirmed Screen Rant’s report last week that Adrien Brody and Jonathan Rhys Meyers are the studio’s two top choices for the film, adding that Brody is being “strongly considered” to play Mr. Fantastic. Here’s an excerpt from CBM’s report:
Today I’ve learned that the studio is very strongly leaning towards Brody; whose A-list status will help draw greater general audience interest in the project. Another name has now been added to the list, this time it’s True Blood star Stephen Moyer. An offer is currently out for the actor to portray the villainous Victor Von Doom/Doctor Doom. Though it is still unclear exactly how central the character will be in the film, Doom will be showcased as the ruler of Latveria and a master of the mystic arts.
