We might finally see Doctor Doom done right! During the Legion panel at San Diego Comic-Con, Noah Hawley revealed that he is developing a solo Doctor Doom movie for Fox. Hawley only briefly mentioned his work on a Doctor Doom movie saying, “I’m developing a film for Fox and I’ll just say two words. Doctor. Doom.” With Legion, Hawley has proven that he has a creative vision for the X-Men universe and a unique perspective when it comes to the comic book movie genre, so it’s exciting to see that he will continue to work on the X-Men franchise.
While Doctor Doom has appeared in every Fantastic Four movie, it’s fair to say that the character hasn’t been portrayed correctly in previous films. Most Marvel Comics fans will agree that Doctor Doom is one of the best villains in comics, with a surprisingly understandable motive, to make a better world.
Update: According to Bleeding Cool, Legion star Dan Stevens is also working on the Doctor Doom movie in an unconfirmed role.
