Ben Mendelsohn wants to play Doctor Doom

The actor says he would love to essay the role of the Fantastic Four villain

Published: 26th November 2017

Ben Mendelsohn says he would love to be one of the most iconic villains in comic history - Victor Von Doom. Expressing his fondness for the Fantastic Four villain, the actor says, "Doctor Doom is the greatest comic character of all time. It's a great role."

"The thing that's really appealing about Victor is the damage and trauma, the loss of the family, the wrong done to him, then the revenge and the takeover. What actually makes him great is his caring bit. That's what's great about Doctor Doom," he adds.

At this year's San Diego Comic-Con, Fox announced that they were planning on making a Doctor Doom solo film helmed by Noah Hawley. When asked about this, Mendelsohn says, "Oh yeah, I'm aware of all this."

Doctor Doom was portrayed by two different actors. In 2005's Fantastic Four, Julian McMahon played the character. Ten years later, Toby Kebbell got the chance to play the villain in The Fantastic Four, though the film was heavily chastised by critics.
