The Toxic Avenger
According to a new report from The Illuminerdi, Elijah Wood has been cast as Bob Garbinger, the lead villain of the Toxic Avenger remake. The character is described as a man with “leonine hair and eerie plastic surgery” aged 40-50 who is the “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 Toxie. 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.”

I can tell you that it’s a ride…very Sam Raimi. The film is incredibly visually thrilling. John Mathieson, our D.P., who shot Gladiator and Logan — I think the look of it is going to be unlike anything you’ve seen in the MCU before.
