"The Fans Aren’t Wrong": Toby Kebell Talks Disappointment With 'Fantastic Four'

While Fox hasn’t revealed what they plan to do with “Fantastic Four” after this summer’s spectacular flop, the chances of the planned sequel dropping in 2017 are looking pretty unlikely. And until the studio figures things out, all anyone can do is look back and try and learn some lessons from the experience. One of those folks is Dr. Doom himself, Toby Kebbell.

“I was disappointed, but the fans aren’t wrong,” he told IGN. “The fans want what they want to see and if they don’t get satisfaction, they let you know.”

The actor goes to allude that his career may have been hurt by the movie, and that if he took anything away from the production, it’s if there’s a problem, don’t hesitate to speak up. “I don’t know if I learned anything from [playing] Doom, apart from, perhaps, when I see something I don’t agree with, to voice that immediately. As an actor, you’re conscious that your career is at stake with each job, especially on these larger productions,” he said. “A film like that comes out, and I’m being sent maybe four scripts in a week, and those scripts go to zero when it doesn’t come out successful, so that actively affects my career. I think it’s vitally important that if there’s a problem on set, that it’s voiced and we solve it there and I think that collaboration is very important. Not to say that didn’t happen on set, but the collaboration is vital and if we don’t do that, then we suffer.”

It’s an honest reply, and it’ll be interesting to hear Michael B. Jordan‘s thoughts when he starts doing the press rounds for “Creed” soon. Check out Kebbell’s interview below.
