Even though Dr Doom aka Victor Von Doom has been given first billing as the main villain in the upcoming Fantastic Four reboot at SSCC there was rumors which were confirmed by the cast members that a secondary villain, the Mole Man was posed to make an appearance as well, possibly setting up a second film which may already be in development at Fox.
When asked the cast (Miles Teller (Reed Richards/Mr. Fantastic), Kate Mara (Sue Storm, Invisible Woman), Michael B. Jordan (Johnny Storm, Human Torch) and Jamie Bell (Ben Grimm, The Thing) said:
Jamie: He has a pretty decent part in this movie, for sure. I wouldn’t be surprised if they’re [Fox] teeing something up, maybe.
Mara: He definitely makes our lives difficult…
Jamie: …but in a kind of ambiguous way. He’s not a straight-up bad guy, he’s just kind of put in an awkward position.
For those who don’t know the Mole Man In the comics, is a man of high intellect who was shunned. He sought solitude in a rumored underground kingdom. In his pursuit to find it, he became trapped in a series of underground tunnels from where he launched attacks on the surface world.
Based on the actors’ comments,it does not look as if Mole Man will appear in any major way in the first film, possibly a cameo or maybe an after or mid credits scene, but remember, Fantastic Four 2 is already slated for release on June 9, 2017.
