So this also happened during the Legion panel at Comic-Con International, Noah Hawley revealed that he’s developing a Doctor Doom movie. Now I know what you’re thinking, “Oh God Fox is trying to do a pseudo Fantastic Four flick” but forget that because the man behind this has talent. I honestly don’t need mutants or the first family back in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. I like what’s currently happening with them.
I wanted to let you know about a movie I’m developing for Fox. The first word is ‘Doctor.’ And the second is ‘Doom.’

Their studio home seems open to trying new things which is great for any property. Granted that can lead to some mistakes, looking at what the Chronicle director delivered back in 2015, but this creator’s perspective on the villain within the franchise could be interesting. Victor von Doom has it within himself to be a compelling central focus and Noah Hawley might just be the man that brings a good adaption of him to the big screen. While giving the audience a villain they might might just want to root for without falling into the potential corny aspects therein.
But what do you think about this? Do we need a Doctor Doom movie? Can Fox deliver the goods for fans of Fantastic Four?
