Regardless of the 2015 Fantastic Four reboot bombing critically and commercially, 20th Century Fox is evidently eager on protecting this explicit property going, albeit in a special matter. At San Diego Comedian-Con final yr, Fargo and Legion showrunner Noah Hawley revealed that he is writing (and probably directing) a Doctor Doom-focused movie. Nevertheless, following Disney purchasing Fox’s entertainment holdings last month, it is unclear whether or not this huge deal would have an effect on the Physician Doom film, amongst a number of other Marvel-related projects at Fox. When requested about this, Hawley said that at present, Disney’s huge purchase hasn’t impacted him creating the Physician Doom film. In his phrases:
I have not had a single dialog but about Doom within the context of the merger. On some stage, we’re nonetheless a time period — most likely a yr, in any case — for this complete factor to undergo. Who is aware of, corporately, what conversations can be had, however definitely, till it goes by means of, it isn’t a authorized factor. I do not know. I have been ready for the telephone to ring to see if anybody is gonna have an opinion. In any other case, it is simply enterprise as typical for me.
Noah Hawley offered the above replace whereas talking with Collider on the Legion panel on the Tv Critics Affiliation press tour. Because the Disney and Fox deal was solely formally introduced in early December, there are nonetheless lots of steps to be taken till every little thing is finalized. Given Hawley’s duties on Legion and Fargo, it is arduous to say how a lot work he’ll get carried out on this Physician Doom film throughout that point. However for proper now, it feels like this explicit Fox Marvel challenge remains to be being workshopped, although we will not low cost that this might change someplace down the road. As a result of Disney dropped the large bucks, that might imply that the X-Males and Incredible 4 characters may very well be integrated into the Marvel Cinematic Universe, so it is potential that the Mouse Home might determine to pursue its personal Incredible 4-related tasks moderately than maintain Hawley’s Physician Doom film round.
Excluding the never-publicly-released 1994 Incredible 4 film, Physician Doom has been portrayed twice on the silver display. Julian McMahon portrayed the antagonist in 2005’s Incredible 4 and 2007’s Incredible 4: Rise of the Silver Surfer, and Toby Kebbell inherited the position within the 2015 Incredible 4 reboot. It is unclear if the Physician Doom film will see the Latverian schemer interacting with the Incredible 4 once more or if his story can be Marvel’s First Household free. There’s additionally reportedly a Incredible 4 film in growth centered on Reed Richards and Sue Storm’s kids, Franklin and Valeria, though it is secure to say that the Physician Doom film is the upper precedence proper now.
