Toby Kebbell States There Is A Great Version Of Fantastic Four That We Will Never See

According to actor Toby Kebbell, there was a very different Fantastic Four that never made it to movie screens.

The film, in which Kebbell played a drastically re-imagined version of Victor von Doom, was reportedly plagued by massive script revisions, extensive reshoots and, by some accounts, sharp disagreements between director Josh Trank and the studio (Fox) -- which even led Trank to say on Twitter in a quickly deleted post, "A year ago I had a fantastic version of this...you'll probably never see it."

Well, Kebbell apparently agrees. Speaking with The Daily Beast while promoting Warcraft, in which he plays orc leader Durotan, Kebbell got onto the subject of Fantastic Four:

“I tell you, the honest truth is (Trank) did cut a great film that you’ll never see. That is a shame. A much darker version, and you’ll never see it."

There's one problem with this: A darker version of Fantastic Four is not necessarily a better one. Trank's version was already pretty dark, but the Fantastic Four comics were never about darkness -- they were about adventure and exploration and crazy, bright colors and a wild, pulpy sci-fi spirit, a fact that screenwriter/producer Simon Kinberg, himself, recently acknowledged (if you remember, Trank allegedly told his cast not to read the comics).

So, I don't know if Trank's original cut would have been better, but either way, Kebbell added that a lot of the work he himself did was not in the film as released:

"I spent so long figuring out an accent that was from the mid-Eastern bloc, generic enough to be a guy who then lived in America. I figured that out. Unfortunately, I played Doom in three points: Walking down a corridor, killing the doctor and getting into the time machine, and lying on the bench. They were the only times I played Doom. Everything else was some other guy, on some other day...doing some other thing. I was infuriated that he was allowed to limp like that!"

Nevertheless, Kebbell also said he was "very proud" of his work on the film and "just as heartbroken" as the fans whose disappointment turned Fantastic Four into a box-office fiasco. Do you think he's right? Would Trank's "darker" original cut have been superior? Or was this vision of Fantastic Four wrongheaded and, pardon the pun, doomed from the get-go?

#TombRaider Official Trailer

Lara Croft is the fiercely independent daughter of an eccentric adventurer who vanished when she was scarcely a teen. Now a young woman of 21 without any real focus or purpose, Lara navigates the chaotic streets of trendy East London as a bike courier, barely making the rent, and takes college courses, rarely making it to class. Determined to forge her own path, she refuses to take the reins of her father’s global empire just as staunchly as she rejects the idea that he’s truly gone. Advised to face the facts and move forward after seven years without him, even Lara can’t understand what drives her to finally solve the puzzle of his mysterious death.



Going explicitly against his final wishes, she leaves everything she knows behind in search of her Dad’s last-known destination: a fabled tomb on a mythical island that might be somewhere off the coast of Japan. But her mission will not be an easy one; just reaching the island will be extremely treacherous. Suddenly, the stakes couldn’t b…

COOK-OFF! Trailer Starring Melissa McCarthy

Reality-show shenanigans mix with the true-life fiery-and-fierce world of competitive baking in the deliciously sly mockumentary COOK-OFF! As a buffet of quirky contestants prepare for the renowned Van Rookle Farms Cooking Contest, the heat is on to win a one million-dollar prize. The filmmakers follow them as the foodie media and celebrity judges descend on a hotel convention area to see which contestants rise, which ones fall, who will reveal their true nature, and who will find love with the contest’s costumed Muffin Man mascot.



Costarring a cast of improv geniuses including Melissa McCarthy, Ben Falcone, Stephen Root, Diedrich Bader, Wendy McLendon-Covey, Gary Anthony Williams, and Sam Pancake, the zesty COOK-OFF! is an affectionate nod to ordinary Americans who believe they’re one dollop of spray cheese away from achieving their dreams.
