Eddie Redmayne among contenders for

PanARMENIAN.Net - Now that 20th Century Fox and director Josh Trank have their “Fantastic Four” in place, they've turned their attention to the movie's villain — Dr. Doom, TheWrap said.

Four rising stars remain on the short-list, all of whom have accents and are 30-34 years old. Sam Riley and Eddie Redmayne are among the shortlisted contenders along with Toby Kebbell and Domhnall Gleeson.

A fifth contender, Jack Huston, was rumored to be up for Dr. Doom several weeks ago, though it's unclear whether he remains in the mix.

One of them is expected to antagonize superheroes Mr. Fantastic (Miles Teller), the Human Torch (Michael B. Jordan), the Invisible Woman (Kate Mara) and the Thing (Jamie Bell).

20th Century Fox, which declined comment, will release “Fantastic Four” in June 2015.
