Everybody can relax now: That report from The Hollywood Reporter that the long-rumored Fantastic Four reboot movie will change the gender of arch villain Dr. Doom to female has been squashed at the highest level — director Josh Trank himself.
Trank (Chronicle) took to Twitter to put down the rumor rather succinctly:
“The THR gender speculation is also bullshit. Next.”
Trank went on to deny that Michael B. Jordan has already been cast as the Human Torch and he also insisted that the leaked synopsis of the film featuring a new origin story was also false.
