Before the Disney/Fox merger, 20th Century Fox was developing a number of Marvel projects, and among them was a Doctor Doom
movie written and directed by Legion
showrunner Noah Hawley. While it didn't sound like the Fantastic Four would make an appearance, fans were still excited for a new take on the villain's origin story, but what's happening now that the character is part of the MCU?
Well, in a new interview, Hawley has revealed that the movie is "done" and that he has no idea whether Marvel Studios is interested in moving forward with his take on Victor Von Doom.
"I mean, where it stands is now that the movie is done and Legion is done and I’ve taken a little time off because someone told me there was this word “vacation,” which means you don’t work, which sounded really interesting to me. But you know, I need to circle back to them and announce that I would love to make it and figure out if that’s something that is possible. Whether or not they already have a plan in place for what to do with those characters or whether they’re open to my kind of vision for what to do with those characters. But it’s sort of on me right now to go push them, which I will do as soon as I come up for air."
As cool as it would have been to see Hawley's Doctor Doom
movie, it seems highly unlikely that Kevin Feige and company have any interest in making a solo outing for Doom part of Phase 5. We know that a new Fantastic Four movie is on the way, but seeing as this villain has been the focus of the three previous efforts, Marvel Studios will almost certainly want to use another classic bad guy.
There is, of course, a chance that Hawley will end up doing something in the MCU, but just like that Multiple Man
movie and the mysterious Kitty Pryde project, it seems Doctor Doom

A Skrull with the ability to shapeshift into humans or animals, Lyja is unlikely to appear in next year's Captain Marvel due to the fact her origin is very much rooted within the world of the Fantastic Four. She managed to infiltrate the team by posing as Alica Masters and served as both an ally and enemy to the team. Assuming we see more of the Skrulls in the MCU, Lyja will no doubt get in on the action.
