The Veteran

Fantastic Four: A few weeks ago, we heard that casting for the villainous role of Doctor Doom in the upcoming Fantastic Four had narrowed to a short list of four candidates. Now comes word that Toby Kebbell has been selected to play Victor von Doom; the British actor's credits include a star turn in war drama The Veteran (see photo) and a supporting role in the upcoming Dawn of the Planet of the Apes. Fantastic Four will hit theaters on June 19, 2015. [Variety]

Star Wars: Episode VII: We know the next installment in the Star Wars saga will begin shooting next month -- but where? Officially, Lucasfilm has said only that the production will be "based at London's historic Pinewood Studios," but a rumor has now circulated claiming that filming will start on May 14 in Morocco. The original movie began production in nearby Tunisia, which served as the setting for Luke Skywalker's home planet of Tattoine. [StarWars.com]

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: What do you think of the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles? The first trailer showcased the more reptilian look of the reinvented Turtles, which has moved some fans to action, including someone who decided that the green guys really needed their snouts back (see photos). Is that better or worse? [Reddit via Badass Digest]
