Eddie Redmayne on shortlist for Fantastic 4 Dr Doom role?


Eddie Redmayne and Sam Riley are among the actors allegedly in the running to play the villain in the Fantastic 4 reboot.

After weeks of reports, it was confirmed last month that Kate Mara, Miles Teller, Jamie Bell, and Michael B Jordan have signed on to star as the new Fantastic 4 team.

The Wrap now reports that four actors are currently on the shortlist to play the arch-nemesis of the superhero foursome, Dr Doom.

In addition to Redmayne and Riley, Domnhall Gleeson and Toby Kebbell are also being considered for the role.

Redmayne is the most-recognised of the four actors, having appeared in last year's highly successful Les MisÚrables.

The Fantastic Four is due for release on June 19, 2015.
