‘FARGO’s Noah Hawley Developing ‘DOCTOR DOOM’ Movie

Fargo and Legion series showrunner Noah Hawley recently took part of the Legion panel at the San Diego Comic-Con and revealed that he’s also developing another project in the Marvel realm.

“Because I’m at Comic-Con. I wanted to let you know about a movie I’m developing for FOX. The first word is ‘Doctor.’ And the second is ‘Doom.'”

Little is known about this project, but having this solo feature of this Fantastic Four villain is a new development. Hawley is developing the project and possibly also directing. Hawley has no feature film directing credits on his resume, but he’s previously directed an episode on Legion and two on Fargo.

Created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby, Doctor Doom first appeared in The Fantastic Four #5 back in 1962. Victor Von Doom is the tyrannical dictator of Latveria and frequent foil to the Fantastic Four. Doom’s face was scarred in an experiment, though he blames Reed Richards for his face, which has forced him to wear his trademark metal mask.

Doom’s chief ability is his intellect, which is on par with Reed Richards, but he has previously dabbled in magic and has enhanced strength and durability due to his armor. He also employs the use of Doombots, fully functional robots that look just like him and which he controls.

Doctor Doom was previously porttayed by Julian McMahon in the 2005 Fantastic Four and its 2007 sequel, with Toby Kebbell playing the role in the 2015 reboot and Joseph Culp in Roger Corman’s produced Fantastic Four film.
