Toby Kebbell has spilled details on his role as villain Doctor Doom in the new Fantastic Four movie.

The British actor, also seen in Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes, will play villain Doctor Doom in the reboot starring House Of Cards star Kate Mara, That Awkward Moment's Miles Teller, Jamie Bell and Michael B Jordan.

But Toby revealed his version of Doom has been given more of a modern twist.

He said: "I'm excited to see it too, and my nerves really... The only thing I can tease you about is what I worked on most was the voice because nobody - even in the cartoons, when I was watching them I was like, 'So where's he from?' There's a mild change.

"He's Victor Domashev, not Victor Von Doom in our story. And I'm sure I'll be sent to jail for telling you that. The Doom in ours - I'm a programmer. Very anti-social programmer. And on blogging sites I'm 'Doom'."

Kate plays The Invisible Woman/Sue Storm, Miles is playing Reid Richards aka Mr Fantastic, Jamie is cast as Ben Grimm/The Thing and Michael B Jordan will play Johnny Storm/The Human Torch in the comic book movie.

Chronicle director Josh Trank is taking the lead on the project, a reboot of the 2005 and 2007 films, which starred Jessica Alba, Chris Evans, Ioan Gruffudd and Michael Chiklis as the Fantastic Four.

Toby said: "It was cool man. Josh, the whole deal, the lo-fi way he did it, the ultra-real. It was just nice to do that. It was nice to be feeling like we had to come to terms with what was given by this incident."

Fantastic Four is due to be released in cinemas in June 2015.
