We know who's playing the new Fantastic Four. But who's in the running to take on the role of Dr Doom in the reboot?

Whilst the debate continues to rage over the casting of the members of the Fantastic Four in the upcoming movie reboot from director Josh Trank, attention has also turning to finding an antagonist. Specifically, filling the role of Dr Doom.

Played by Julian McMahon in Tim Story's pair of earlier Fantastic Four movies, The Wrap is reporting that the shortlist for the character is now down to four names.

The quartet in consideration for the role? Sam Riley (Control), Domnhall Gleeson (About Time), Eddie Redmayne (Les Miserables) and Toby Kebbell (Wrath Of The Titans). And here's what they look like.

Sam Riley and Toby Kebbell first...

See a Victor von Doom in that lot?

Production starts on the new Fantastic Four at the end of this month, ahead of its release on June 19th 2015.
