Marvel Studios' Kevin Feige Recently Met With Noah Hawley; Is There Still Hope For His DOCTOR DOOM Film?

The status of Noah Hawley's Doctor Doom was left up in the air following the Disney/Fox merger, but now the Legion showrunner has revealed that he is still having discussions about the Marvel villain...

Following Disney’s acquisition of Fox, most assumed that films like Gambit were officially dead in the water. However, it now seems that one of Fox’s Marvel projects is still clinging to life.

While discussing the upcoming third and final season of FX’s Legion with The Hollywood Reporter, showrunner Noah Hawley revealed that he recently had a meeting with the head of Marvel Studios and provided an interesting update on the status of his Doctor Doom film.

“I did sit down with [Marvel Studios' president] Kevin Feige recently and I said that I look at myself as sort of the Marvel R&D department.” Hawley said, shedding some light on what their meeting was about. “I know the genre can do all of these amazing things that [the Marvel Cinematic Universe] is doing, but my feeling is, what else can we do with it? Can we make it surreal? Can we make it musical? Not as a gimmick, but all of these techniques are about putting you into the subjective experience of these characters.”

After explaining that he and Feige talked about the entire comic book movie genre, the Lucy in the Sky director went on to reveal that he is still having conversations about making a Doctor Doom movie.

“I wrote a script about Doctor Doom, an antihero story I really like, and we're still talking about making it. I'm trying to get out from under this movie I made and this last season of Legion, and Fargo is coming back up… but for better or worse, these are the stories we want to hear right now.”

Although Hawley didn’t explicitly say that his meeting with Kevin Feige was about Doctor Doom, it’s hard to imagine that the iconic Fantastic Four villain didn’t at least come up during their discussion, especially since Feige already expressed interest in his script.

What do you folks think? Do you want to see Hawley bring the big bad to the big screen? To share your thoughts, leave a comment below.
