SDCC 2017: Doctor Doom Is Returning To The Big Screen

Fantastic news from Comic Con...

Ultimate Doctor Doom

Noah Hawley (of Fargo and Legion fame) revealed at SDCC yesterday that he is working on a Doctor Doom movie.

Coming off the back of Thursday's Legion panel, Hawley told the audience that he'd be working with Fox to bring another of Marvel's characters to live action, saying two words: "the first one is Doctor and the next one is Doom."

Pretty awesome news, then, for fans of the Latverian dictator. Especially in light of the three consecutive films that have all managed to spectacularly botch the character over the years.

Hawley's involvement is definite cause for excitement, especially in light of his work on TV's Fargo and Legion (shows you should definitely be watching). Given the success of both series', I'm sure we won't have to deal with another appearance from 2015's crash test dummy doom (because who wants that, let's be honest), but it's about time we got a truly authentic Doom in live action.

There are plenty of angles that Hawley could lead with in making the film, but it sounds as though it's still very early days for the project, or at the very least, confirmation that an FF-MCU merger is well and truly off the cards.


How do you feel about Fox taking another stab at the Fantastic Four license? Would you rather Marvel were given the chance to work with the character? Post your thoughts in the comments below!
