(Getty Images | Marvel Comics)The Fantastic Four reboot has settled on a villain, and, as rumored, they'll be bringing back that most famous of FF nemeses, Dr. Doom. News broke Wednesday, via Variety, that Toby Kebbell has been tapped by Fox to resurrect the metal-faced baddie who's part super-genius, part despot, and part sorcerer. With supporting roles in The CounselorWrath of the Titans, and Warhorse, Kebbell isn't a super familiar face. (And if he's playing a character wearing a metal mask in his big breakout role, he might stay that way.)

Word is Boardwalk Empire's Jack Huston and Domhnall Gleeson were also vying for the role, which was filled by Julian McMahon in the 2005 version of the movie. This casting news comes about a month and a half after the public first learned the new Fantastic Four would be comprised of Miles Teller (Reed Richards), Kate Mara (Sue Storm), Michael B. Jordan (Johnny Storm), and Jamie Bell (Ben Grimm).
