It will take some time to see the charismatic Marvel villain known as Doctor Doom on the big screen again, but it may be worth the wait. In a recent interview with Uproxx, screenwriter Noah Hawley revealed a couple of interesting details on his Doctor Doom movie. But he confirmed once again that the project is in a sort of limbo for now as well.
“It combined genres,” he said. “And it’s sort of a Cold War parallel film. And I really like it. I’ve been too busy to really lean on them, and they certainly haven’t called me on the phone. And during my sit down with Kevin Feige, when he asked about the Doctor Doom movie, he said, “Are you still working on it?” And I said, “Should I still be working on it?”
Then Hawley explained that Marvel Studios haven’t told him the project is dead yet, so there is a little hope to see it in the future.
“I said, “I assume you guys have a plan in a drawer somewhere for the Fantastic Four.” And he smiled a little bit, but would neither confirm nor deny,” Hawley added. “But yeah, I think it would be a great comic book movie certainly.”
Hawley has a good amount of experience with superhero-related projects, as he produced all three seasons of FX’s Legion. The show has been appreciated by critics, even though the viewers’ number decreased with time. Nevertheless, the particular take he had on the X-Men spin-off makes Hawley a good candidate for reviving Doctor Victor Von Doom on the big screen.
