Last fall, "Fantastic Four" star Toby Kebbell -- who plays Doctor Doom in the upcoming film -- stirred up controversy when he said his character would be a very anti-social programmer who goes by "Doom" on blogging sites. Now, however, he has clarified that his Doom will have an origin a little closer to the one in the comics in an interview with SuperHeroHype.
"There's no conversation about [Doom's origins] in the film. We don't have time to talk about me -- I would love it, but we don't have real time. Yeah, he's still from the same place, his mother is still a gypsy and done her deals, his father still perished from exposure looking after me. He's angry. He's an angry dude. But now he's in Baxter. He's bright and he's trying to make people proud. He found a new father in Dr. Storm, the father of Johnny and adoptive father of Sue. I kind of get adopted as well, in a fantastic performance by Reg E. Cathey. And that's Doom as we see him. He's a computer technician, a computer scientist. There were rumors he was a hacker or something, but no. Victor Von Doom is who we hope he will be."
