Marvel Advised to Avoid Doctor Doom in ‘The Fantastic Four

Marvel Studios is renowned for its innovative decisions, and one bold move they should consider is excluding Doctor Doom from ‘The Fantastic Four’. The beloved superhero team is finally set to grace the big screen after years of speculation since its announcement at the 2019 San Diego Comic-Con. The recent Valentine’s Day cast announcement has brought Pedro Pascal, Vanessa Kirby, Joseph Quinn, and Ebon Moss-Bachrach on board as Reed Richards, Sue Storm, Johnny Storm, and Ben Grimm, respectively. However, the journey to bring ‘The Fantastic Four’ to fruition has been far from smooth. Originally slated to be directed by Jon Watts, the departure of Watts in 2022 led to Matt Shakman of ‘WandaVision’ taking over. The script has undergone multiple revisions, with various writers attached to the project. While never officially confirmed, it was widely expected that Jonathan Majors’s Kang The Conqueror would have some involvement.

With Majors’ departure, speculation is rife once again about who will step in as the next big antagonist in The Multiverse Saga. Doctor Doom, the arch-nemesis of The Fantastic Four, appears to be the frontrunner. However, Marvel should think twice before going down this route. The team’s inaugural adventure in the MCU needs to feel personal, and introducing Doctor Doom as the primary antagonist could overshadow the spotlight on the heroes. Additionally, considering the promotional art hints at a period setting for the film, there is an opportunity to explore other villains that better suit the era. Furthermore, Doctor Doom’s complex character and political intrigue could be better utilized in present-day MCU narratives, potentially involving conflicts with powerful nations like Wakanda and Atlantis.

The previous two attempts at portraying Doctor Doom in live-action films, notably in 2005’s ‘Fantastic Four’ and 2015’s ‘Fantastic Four’ (or FANT4STIC), were met with mixed reactions. Neither interpretation fully captured the depth and complexity of the character, leading to the belief that it may be time for ‘The Fantastic Four’ franchise to distance itself from Doctor Doom for the time being. Instead, the film could explore lesser-known villains from the comics that are more era-appropriate, such as Mole Man or Molecule Man, while still maintaining connections to the wider MCU.

The decision regarding the antagonist for ‘The Fantastic Four’ film series’ debut is crucial and should align with Marvel Studios’ penchant for bold creative choices. While the details surrounding the villain remain uncertain, one thing is clear: Doctor Doom may not be the right fit for this particular chapter in the MCU’s evolution.
