Iconic Fantastic Four villain Doctor Doom gets his own Disney+ show poster in new fan art that imagines his entry to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Now that Marvel Studios (under the ownership of Disney) owns the rights to the Fox universe of Marvel characters, fans have been wondering when the Fantastic Four will be introduced to the MCU. After two milquetoast movies in the 2000s and a disastrous reboot directed by Josh Trank, audiences are desperate to see the classic Marvel superheroes joining the rest of the stable.
Fan casting for an MCU Fantastic Four movie remains rampant, with names like John Krasinski and Emily Blunt commonly connected to the roles of Reed Richards and Sue Storm respectively, while Viggo Mortenson remains a fan favorite for the role of Doctor Doom. The classic villain was portrayed by Julian McMahon in Fantastic Four and Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer, while Toby Kebbell took on the role in 2015’s Fantastic Four reboot. Despite news that Marvel Studios is meeting with writers for an MCU Fantastic Four movie, it remains unknown when and how the classic characters will be introduced. But one fan has a pitch for Marvel Studios.
Reddit user Neutral Horizon has created a fan poster for a Doctor Doom Disney+ series, pitching the idea of introducing the villain via his own dedicated TV show. Clearly inspired by Disney+’s upcoming Loki series, the poster pitches an origin story for the classic villain, paving the way for the Fantastic Four to be seamlessly integrated into the MCU. The art itself is fairly straightforward, presenting the classic version of Doctor Doom’s mask, with his hood and cloak covering his head and shoulders. The art is very comic book accurate, and bathes Doctor Doom in a green glow. You can see it below:
The idea is intriguing, if a little out of left field, even for Marvel. The likelihood of them introducing their “first family” to the MCU via a TV series focused on the main villain is low, but they have proven with WandaVision that even the stranger ideas can be wildly successful. Interestingly, many fans theorize that the MCU Fantastic Four would debut in WandaVision, but the theory was debunked early on by the showrunner, and with one episode remaining, it’s unlikely to happen now.
Still, there’s no doubt that the Fantastic Four are coming, and if anyone can find a way to pull off a unique way to introduce them to a new universe, it’s Marvel Studios and Disney. Sadly for fans like Neutral Horizon, it’s probably not going to be in the form of a Doctor Doom Disney+ show, though this fan art proves it wouldn’t be a terrible idea.
