As we get farther and farther away from the flop of the recent reboot of Fantastic Four, more and more people are coming to terms with how bad it was, including those who acted in the film. Toby Kebbell, who played Doctor Doom in the film, talked with IGN and discussed strongly about how he felt about the film.
“I was disappointed, but the fans aren’t wrong. The fans want what they want to see and if they don’t get satisfaction, they let you know,” he explained. “I appreciate that as a performer. My job is to come in and perform as best I can, and hopefully be directed in that path. I felt like I was. I felt like the film was going to go well. It didn’t turn out that the fans felt that way, so their reaction is honest, and I can only appreciate honesty,” he added.
He does note thought that the fans aren’t the only ones affected by the film failing, the people behind the film are affected as well. He continued: “As an actor, you’re conscious that your career is at stake with each job –especially on these larger productions. A film like that comes out, and I’m being sent maybe four scripts in a week, and those scripts go to zero when it doesn’t come out successful, so [that] actively affects my career.”
The fate and future of the Fantastic Four has never been more unclear, and we’ll have to see what happens.
