The Han Solo Movie Is Titled SOLO: A STAR WARS STORY

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?
