Marvel Star Wants To Play Fantastic Four Villain Doctor Doom After His MCU Death



Marvel Star Wants To Play Fantastic Four Villain Doctor Doom After His MCU Death 2

Doctor Doom has appeared in every single live-action adaptation of the «Fantastic Four» so far, including the 1994 film that was never released. Joseph Culp, Julian McMahon, and Toby Kebbell all had their chance at the role, but who will don the green cloak next? Will it be Ben Mendelsohn? He’s a highly decorated blockbuster talent whose previous MCU role literally involved shape-shifting — he’s got the range. Even so, it’s unlikely.

According to rumors, Marvel intends for the Fantastic Four to battle Galactus — a cosmic being who devours planets — in their introductory film, which means that they will face the Silver Surfer — Galactus’ mighty herald — as well. Reports suggest that Javier Bardem will play Galactus, that Marvel is seeking an actor to portray the Silver Surfer, and that Doctor Doom will be relegated to a brief cameo.

Doctor Doom could very easily be the next Big Bad of the MCU. If «Avengers: Secret Wars» adheres to its source material, then he will steal godhood and single-handedly combat some of the most powerful heroes on Marvel’s roster. Hopefully, Marvel Studios will take its time casting «the great unread» villain because, even with «Deadpool 3» promising a better future, the MCU desperately needs a long-term win.
