Fantastic Four: Toby Kebbell says 'fans aren't wrong' about the film
The Fantastic Four reboot was met with a decidedly less-than-fantastic reception from both critics and moviegoers when it arrived in theaters over the summer. Now, Toby Kebbell, who played the superhero film’s Dr. Doom, is sharing his thoughts on how it was received.
“I was disappointed, but the fans aren’t wrong,” he told IGN in a recent interview. “The fans want what they want to see and if they don’t get satisfaction, they let you know. I appreciate that as a performer.”
Kebbell also revealed some of the things he learned from making the film.
“I don’t know if I learned anything from [playing] Doom, apart from, perhaps, when I see something I don’t agree with, to voice that immeidately. As an actor, you’re conscious that your career is at stake with each job, especially on these larger productions,” he added. “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. I think it’s vitally important that if there’s a problem on set, that it’s voiced and we solve it there and I think that collaboration is very important. Not to say that didn’t happen on set, but the collaboration is vital and if we don’t do that, then we suffer.”

Kebbell’s upcoming projects include the video game adaptation Warcraft, which released its first trailer on Friday and is slated for a June 2016 release.
