Before Disney merged with Fox, Legion creator Noah Hawley was writing a Doctor Doom solo movie for Fox. After the merger, Hawley’s vision had started to draw interest at Marvel Studios before losing its momentum.
Deadline had an opportunity to catch up with Noah Hawley and find out what the future has in store for him. Hawley revealed that the status of the Doctor Doom movie would be on hold for the time being. You can check out what Hawley had to say about the current situation below:
“I mean, where it stands is now that the [Doctor Doom] movie is done and Legion is done and I’ve taken a little time off because someone told me there was this word ‘vacation’. Which means you don’t work, which sounded really interesting to me. But you know, I need to circle back to them and announce that I would love to make it and figure out if that’s something that is possible. Whether or not, they already have a plan in place for what to do with those characters or whether they’re open to my kind of vision for what to do with those characters. But it’s sort of on me right now to go push them, which I will do as soon as I come up for air.”
Marvel is currently working on developing a Fantastic Four film. After 2015’s Fantastic Four was a disappointment at the box office, Marvel will want to take the time to get their characters and the story right for Marvel’s first family. Hawley will be staying busy and working on Fargo 4.
