We can’t talk about Dr. Doom without talking about Fantastic Four. There has been 4 movie adaptations of Fantastic Four. The first one was in 1994. The most popular of these 4 movies was the movie made in 2005. That movie did well and second movie was made called Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer (2007). That movie was not successful and the third movie was cancelled. I actually did liked the 2007 movie. Fox rebooted the Fantastic Four franchise in 2015. That movie bombed. I agreed 2015 movie was no good, took too long to develop the characters. Dr. Doom has very little screen time in that movie. This 2015 movie was the last Fantastic Four movie developed by Fox because the rights to Fantastic Four was sold to Disney. It has been confirmed in November 2020, Fantastic Four movie is being developed and will be introduced into Marvel Cinematic Universe.
The problems with Fox movies, they tend to have the same villain in every one of their movie. Dr. Doom is every one of the Fantastic Four movies. They need to mix it up a little. Same thing when Fox made all of those X-men movies, they have Magneto as the villain in almost every one of those movies.
I know Marvel Studios will make a great Fantastic Four movie. How can they make a great movie?
- Marvel can skip the origin story. That story has been told twice already. Three times if you count the 1994 movie. I know that’s what they did with Spider-man. They didn’t do a origin story when Marvel rebooted the Spider-Man franchise with Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017).
- Marvel will need to come up with another villain instead of Dr. Doom in the next movie. I know Dr. Doom is their main villain. We seen him already. We also seen Galactus and Silver Surfer too. Maybe the new movie should start out with Namor as the main villain.
