This contradicts a rumor that Fox was planning to cast a female Doctor Doom.

Greetings, comrades! It is I, your El Presidente, reporting live from inside the cockpit of a
Russian military local security force tank in Crimea! I had to take a break from crushing the pro-Western uprising to bring you a big scoop.
The Wrap is reporting that Fox have narrowed down the casting choices for the upcoming Fantastic Four reboot to four actors for the role of quintessential supervillain Doctor Doom. According to their sources, Sam Riley (Maleficent), Eddie Redmayne (Les Miserables), Toby Kebbell (Dawn of the Planet of the Apes), and Domhnall Gleeson (Dredd) are on the short list. The winner will join Miles Teller (Mr. Fantastic), Jaime Bell (The Thing), Michael B. Jordan (Human Torch) and Kate Mara (Invisible Woman) in the film.
My friends, I have to give major Hollywood points to The Wrap for this one. Not only is it a scoop, but it discredits the prior scoop claiming Fox was looking to cast a female Doom in the movie. It reminds me of the time my little buddy Che Guevara discredited the scoop of Bolivian president René Barrientos by revealing that Spencer Tracy would star in Guess Who's Coming to Dinner and not Humphrey Bogart, who Barrientos had predicted despite the actor being dead for ten years. Haw haw haw! Bolivians are so stupid! Barrientos was so mad he had Che captured and executed later that year.
The movie hits theaters on June 19, 2015.

About the Author - El Presidente
El Presidente gave up his position as President and Prime Minister of Cuba, as well as First Secretary of Cuba's Communist Party, in 2008 in order to concentrate on his true love: Hollywood gossip reporting. Forming the rumor website Cubano Review, El Presidente built a name for himself based on over THREE DOZEN industry credited trade scoops. Unfortunately, capitalist American trade embargoes have rendered CubanoReview.com unreachable from within the United States, forcing El Presidente to syndicate his articles to The Outhouse, which flies under the radar of the American oligarchy thanks to most leaders assuming it is a scat porn site, which, to be fair, is basically true.
