As Disney/Fox deal finalises, is the Doctor Doom movie on Kevin Feige’s radar?

March 19th, 2019 by Marc Comments

Remember some time ago Fargo and Legion creator Noah Hawley was working on a Doctor Doom movie at Fox (here)? Well, it seems that with the deal between Disney and Fox finalising today, the movie may still go ahead only now as part of the MCU.

Hawley has recently revealed that he’s met with MCU head Kevin Feige and the movie came up, although there’s no more news as yet.

Hawley said he met with Kevin Feige recently and was asked, who asked: “Are you still working on it?”

“Should I still be working on it?” Hawley asked. Feige didn’t reply.

Hawley said he sees the movie “as a geopolitical thriller more than a standard superhero movie. It begins with Doom putting a dome over Latveria, the fictional European country he rules. He later invites a female journalist to be his voice to the world, meaning its protagonist would be someone without superpowers.”


With Disney now certainly looking at introducing Fantastic Four and X-Men into the MCU, this sounds like it might be a great way to get the ball rolling…


Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
