Toby Kebbell: There’s a ‘Great’ Cut of “Fantastic Four” You’ll Never See

Toby Kebbell has been reflecting on the lackluster 2015 “Fantastic Four” film — revealing that he only played Doctor Doom at three points in the film, and that there’s a “great” unreleased cut of the movie out there.

Doing press for “Warcraft,” Kebbell mused about his “Fantastic Four” film (via TheDailyBeast), “Blockbusters…Aren’t blockbusters successful?”

Kebbell then revealed that there’s an alternate cut of the film, which he enjoyed greatly: “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.”

It makes sense the “darker” version would’ve been rejected by the studio, considering producer Simon Kinberg’s vision or a more “brighter” Fantastic Four film down the road.

The “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes” also actor reflected on his performance, which he said he gave a lot of attention to at the time. “I spent so long figuring out an accent that was from the mid-Eastern block, generic enough to be a guy who then lived in America. I figured that out.”

He added, “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!”

Kebbell’s “Warcraft” film hits theaters on June 10.
