Dr. Doom in the Flesh
'Shannon' has sent us a rumor beginning to circulate on the sequel to Fantastic Four, Fantastic Four and the Silver Surfer. Though Julian McMahon has been said to be coming back for the sequel as Dr. Doom, he may only be their in spirit -- or voice, depending on how you want to hear it.
Julian McMahon Dr. Doom's Voice
Here is the email sent over by 'Shannon'.
NOW THIS IS INTERESTING.
Might Julian McMahon only be returning to FANTASTIC FOUR 2 in "VOICE" Only?
According to COMICBOOKRESOURCES.COM, actor Chris Showerman is up for the role of Dr.Doom, which makes me believe he may be THE GUY IN THE
SUIT and McMahon might only be providing the voice.
"George of the Jungle 2' star Christopher Showerman may have met with Twentieth Century Fox about a possible role in 'The Fantastic Four and the
Silver Surfer.' Rumor has it that the actor, soon to be seen in Lionsgate's 'Sea of Fear,' is reading for the role of 'Victor Von Doom,' suggesting that
although Julian McMahon may be returning to voice the character -- who will now be totally masked behind a mask [sic] -- it may be someone else
filling the suit."
Interesting rumor yes, going to make an impact on the film no. Remember that it wasn't James Earl Jones in the Darth Vader suit but it was his voice. I am still hoping that Fox decides to make FF2 way better than the original, and if these trivial details get them there so be it.
