Hot off of our first Filmthusiast review of FANTASTIC FOUR, The Hollywood Reporter has revealed that it’s villain, Toby Kebbell, is in negotiations for KONG: SKULL ISLAND.
No word on who he is playing, but I’m hoping it’s not another bad guy. Kebbell was a major standout in last year’s DAWN OF THE PLANET OF THE APES. He brought a level of humanity to the villainous Koba that presented him as a complicated and damaged creature. Now, after being completely wasted in FANTASTIC FOUR, I would love to see him test other waters.
We all know he can play a bad guy and knock it out of the park, so unless you can provide him with a villain that is on par with Koba… Maybe we should give him something else to work with.
