It seems like only a matter of time until Doctor Doom enters the Marvel Cinematic Universe. With a «Fantastic Four» movie currently in production and slated to arrive in 2025, it makes sense to introduce him to the franchise relatively soon. Now that Disney and Fox’s respective Marvel properties are free to exist in the same universe, Doom can enter the fold without any restrictions. Marvel Studios rarely drops clues if they don’t plan on following through, and the social media response to the «Deadpool 3» trailer indicates that the fans want this menace to be the next major threat to this cinematic universe. «THIS BETTER BE DOCTOR DOOM,» wrote one passionate fan.
Furthermore, a villain of Doom’s magnitude would undoubtedly add some stakes to the MCU, especially with Marvel reportedly pivoting away from Kang the Conqueror following the legal controversies surrounding Jonathan Majors. As it stands, though, we don’t know what the plans are. Still, the Doom tease in the «Deadpool 3» trailer has certainly raised some interesting questions.
