Sdcc: Legion’s Noah Hawley is developing a Doctor Doom movie at Fox

21 July 2017 12:45 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

As the San Diego Comic-Con panel for FX’s X-Men series Legion was winding down, showrunner Noah Hawley dropped a massive bombshell that seems to indicate he won’t just be sticking to the small screen to tell stories about comic book characters.

Hawley began teasing fans about a movie that he was developing at Fox, and it didn’t take long for him to spill the beans. “I’ll just say two words. The first one is Doctor and the next one is Doom,” he said.

Sources later told The Hollywood Reporter that he is, in fact, building a feature film around the iconic Fantastic Four villain and eyeing the director’s chair.

Doctor Doom, a Stan Lee and Jack Kirby creation, is a powerful sorcerer and brilliant inventor, who is generally considered to be one of the greatest comic book villains of all time.
