Ben Mendelsohn wants to play Doctor Doom character

London: Actor Ben Mendelsohn said he would love to be one of the most iconic villains in comic history Victor Von Doom.

Ben expressed his fondness for the ‘Fantastic Four’ villain.

comic character of all time. That’s a great role. The thing that’s really appealing about Victor is the damage and trauma, the loss of the family, the wrong done to him, then the revenge and the takeover,” he said.

Mendelsohn added: “Then it’s the protectiveness of Latveria wrapped in that Cold War vibe. What actually makes him great is his caring bit. That’s what’s great about Doctor Doom, and I just like him!”

Doctor Doom was portrayed by two different actors. In 2005’s ‘Fantastic Four’, actor Julian McMahon got into the character. Ten years later, Toby Kebbell got the chance to play the villain in ‘The Fantastic Four’, but the movie was heavily chastised by critics.

Mendelsohn expressed his enthusiasm on playing Doctor Doom.
