SDCC: ‘Doctor Doom’ Film in Development From ‘Legion’ Creator

20th Century Fox isn’t done with Fantastic Four quite yet. During the San Diego Comic-Con on Thursday, Noah Hawley, the writer and creator of FX’s Fargo and Legion, announced that he was developing a Doctor Doom film.

Doctor Doom is the Fantastic Four’s longtime arch-nemesis, and considered one of their greatest villains. He was portrayed by Toby Kebbell in Fantastic Four (2015), and Julian McMahon before that in Fantastic Four (2005).

Hawley said he would be writing the script himself, possibly to also direct.

20th Century Fox has had a tumultuous past with the Fantastic Four franchise. All three films were received poorly. The most recent film, directed by Josh Trank in 2015, failed so badly, 20th Century Fox scrapped sequel plans.

Monkeys Fighting Robots will provide updates as they come.
