Noah Hawley has announced he is working on a film focusing on the arch nemesis of Marvel’s First Family: Doctor Doom. According to Empire, Hawley only dropped the character name at the end of the Comic-Con panel for Legion, but there has been no official announcement yet. No doubt audiences everywhere still shudder at the thought of another Fantastic Four film, so the announcement of a villain-focused tale is appealing. Hawley is responsible for the acclaimed Fargo series, and the recent Legion series which has also received rave reviews.The thought of a creative mind trying to save the Fantastic Four franchise for Fox is a gift and a curse. The Fantastic Four have fallen on tough times, with the comic series seemingly gone, action figures no longer being produced, and the box office failure of the last film. Hawley could be the saviour for Fox, but for those hoping for a return of the Fab Four to Marvel, this may be disappointing because it will further prevent that. Doctor Doom is, without a doubt, one of the most intriguing villains from the Marvel library, who has never reached his full potential on screen. Considering Hawley’s success and where he announced this could happen. Comic-con is nerd Mecca and is usually controlled. Such an announcement may have been staged to gauge excitement for a Doctor Doom picture. Stay tuned.
