Noah Hawley's DOCTOR DOOM Movie Is Somewhat Inspired By CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER

Speaking to The Observer, LEGION showrunner Noah Hawley has revealed that his approach to the upcoming Doctor Doom project is somewhat inspired by the MCU film Captain America: The Winter Soldier...

FOX's X-Men universe has seen something of a resurgence in recent years with more director-driven, left-of-field projects like Logan and Deadpool offering unique alternatives to the usual superhero fare. While the future of the franchise is uncertain as we await the details of Disney's acquisition of the studios' assets, future projects of that ilk are still being worked on.

One that was announced to great fanfare last year at Comic-Con, was the solo Doctor Doom film from the creator of the much-loved X-Universe show Legion Noah Hawley. While speaking to The Observer Hawley revealed that he's still very much hard at work on the film and that it will be a mix of genres not unlike Captain America: The Winter Soldier:
 

“What’s interesting to me about Doom’s character is he’s the King of an Eastern European country and is there a version of this that is more of a political thriller that mixes genre?…It’s something that Captain America: The Winter Soldier did really well, which was kind of make a Cold War thriller movie out of a superhero movie. This is different than that, but it does have this idea of, and I don’t want to say too much about it, but it is a mixture of genres… the mandate is not to re-launch the Fantastic Four franchise as much as it is to take this fascinating and under-served character and really build a movie about him where we ask the question: Is he a hero? Is he a villain? What does he really want?”


While Hawley's name and pedigree is sure to excite many, some might be less than enthused at the reminder that the project isn't going to re-launch the Fantastic Four franchise. Regardless, the notion of seeing an anti-hero Doctor Doom as the protagonist of his own film is an exciting one. 

There's no word yet on when we can expect to see the film or how far along it is, especially with a planned fourth season of Fargo on the cards and his feature film debut Pale Blue Dot sure to be keeping Hawley very busy. What's more, the Disney acquisition could swoop in and make all this moot.

What do you think? Are you excited about Hawley's Doctor Doom movie? What kind of film would you like to see it be? Do you think it will happen at all? Leave your thoughts below.
