Dr.Doom a woman.....let the Reed, Sue, Victoria Doom fanfic begin.
How about this, use a different FF villain altogether?!

Does Fox really care about this property?
There's making a film to retain the rights and then there's being so obtuse about the source material that the product you make isn't a viable income endeavor. This film is headed for latter it seems.

Well, now all the outrage over Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor has been usurped by the latest FF DOA reboot casting rumors! At this point, I just hope Fox doesn't go through with its plans to integrate this FF into the X-Men universe films.

The most interesting development about the film is what THR says they've learned about antagonist Doctor Doom, who they say is expected to be the villain once again in the film. Fox is reportedly likely to cast a big name actor in the role, but in a surprising development, they are considering the possibility of switching the character's gender.
Doom as a woman seems like a needless change. This isn't even about more female representation since Sue is already a woman.

Josh Trank will be jumping at the chance to dunk this rumor in the next hour like he has for everything else.

And one out of five main characters being female represents proper "female representation" in your eyes?

I mean, I'm not saying Doom needs to be a woman, but saying he shouldn't be because the movie already has ONE whole female character seems ridiculous.

This is why Trank should not be debunking this stuff just yet. We can tell if the rumors are true simply by paying attention to which ones he doesn't call untrue.

So he has denied stuff that ended up being true? Now I don't know what to believe.

^I was thinking that myself! He even admits that he lied about one thing (presumably the involvement of Michael B. Jordan?). Shades of JJ and company and 'Cumberbatch is NOT Khan!'?

What worries me the most about the rumors I've heard (insomuch as one "worries" about a movie in pre-production), is that none of it has sounded good to me, true or not.

Re: Fantastic Four reboot-- Casting, Rumors, Pix, ect;

The cast are finalizing their deals according to Deadline:

Fox recently cleared some prime summer 2015 real estate for its reboot of Marvel’s Fantastic Four, now it appears to have its actors. After a long search — Chronicle‘s Josh Trank was announced as the director at the 2012 Comic-Con — Fruitvale Station breakout Michael B. Jordan, Miles Teller (Divergent), Kate Mara (Transcendence) and Jamie Bell (Nymphomaniac) are working on deals to star as the ’60s-spawned superhero quartet. The deals aren’t in cement yet, but Jordan and Bell look pretty solid. The roles as they stand would be Jordan as Johnny Storm (aka the Human Torch), Teller as Reed Richards (Mr. Fantastic), Mara as Sue Storm (the Invisible Woman) and Bell as Ben Grimm (the Thing). The latest script is from X-Men: Days of Future Past scribe Simon Kinberg.

Too bad, I was looking forward to Richard Madden as Reed and Saiorse Ronan as Sue.
