It’s been revealed that Kevin Bacon has been cast as the villain in the upcoming reboot of The Toxic Avenger, which I think is perfect casting.
This news comes to us via The Hollywood Reporter, and I really cannot wait to see this movie.
It was previously reported that Peter Dinklage had been cast to play the lead in this upcoming reboot.
Dinklage is just perfect casting for the role and has shown himself time and time again to be an incredible actor.
He’s become so much more than just that guy off of Game Of Thrones.
It has been rumoured that Elijah Wood was up for the role of the film’s villain.
However, The Hollywood Reporter has revealed that Lionsgate opted for Kevin Bacon instead.
We’ve already seen Bacon play a villain before in X-Men: First Class and he was brilliant in that film.
Kevin Bacon will be The Toxic Avenger’s main villain
This character is described as “a corrupt executive, and Winston’s boss, who aims to go toe to toe with the Toxic Avenger.”
Here is the character’s leaked description:
Bob Garbinger (40-50) – Leonine hair and eerie plastic surgery. Evil head of the shady company Garb X. He has no regard for the well being of anyone but himself and embarks on a murderous spree to become as powerful as Toxic. His ego is bolstered by his standing amongst the towns official but in reality he lives in fear of the underworld gang he’s indebted to.
