In addition to keeping busy as the showrunner of Fargo and Legion, Noah Hawley is working on his own contribution to the superhero movie landscape. Last year at San Diego Comic-Con, Hawley revealed that he’s developing a Doctor Doom movie for 20th Century Fox. Few believe that this upcoming film will allow the Marvel super villain to arguably shine properly for the first time.
The Doctor Doom movie is one of numerous superhero movies being delivered to the masses, which is why Hawley is looking to how Captain America: The Winter Soldier effectively mixed genres in order to stand out. He said: “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?“
Noah Hawley also mentioned that he’s interested in exploring Victor von Doom’s connection to Latveria.
