At the end of the Legion panel at San Diego Comic-Con, showrunner Noah Hawley revealed some big news: He’s working on a Doctor Doom film for 20th Century Fox.
After announcing that he was working on something special for Fox, Hawley said, “I’ll just say two words. The first one is Doctor and the next one is Doom.”
Doctor Doom has featured as a villain in all three Fantastic Four movies, but this will be the first time he takes center stage. And it will be one of the few superhero movies with the villain as the main character.
According to SyFy Wire, “Doom has often been the center of stories, whether he’s been the antagonist for the Fantastic Four, the Avengers, or even the entire Marvel Universe (heck, a couple of years ago he was against the entire Marvel Multiverse). The character has had one-shots and mini-series, and is currently featured in the Marvel Universe as the Infamous Iron Man, so he can certainly stand on his own.”
