Ryan Coogler talks about Dr. Doom

Victor Von Doom, the legendary villain of the Fantastic Four, has received a lot of attention. Marvel fans are gearing up for the upcoming release of Black Panther 2. Early reports have even suggested that Doom could appear in the fourth and final MCU Phase 4 film. Establishing him as a supervillain before he took on the lead roles in the The Fantastic Four and Avengers: Secret Wars films in 2025 and 2026, respectively.

With speculations that Black Panther 2 only includes one post-credits sequencewhich was described as “very touching”, as the film draws to a close, those suspicions would have been dispelled, which is disappointing.

The reason Namor, rather than Doctor Doom, is the sequel’s antagonist is stated by Black Panther: Wakanda Forever director Ryan Coogler.

Coogler explained why he chose to cast Namor as the antagonist of Wakanda Forever. Doom is an amazing character in Marvel Comics, the director said. He is one of the greats. Unlike Namor, he has been portrayed in films in different ways. Since there were no performances, I think that’s what intrigued me the most about Namor. It was just writing for Namor; you had no baggage from other performers, other performances or other films. Doom, in my opinion, is a bit unique. But what a remarkable character, man!

Dr. Doom Isn’t The Fantastic Four’s Main Villain

Due to the overwhelmingly unfavorable response Fan4stic received from fans, Toby Kebbell’s portrayal of the character was completely overlooked.

Given that his position in Secret Wars should be as prominent as in the comics, this might be why Marvel would avoid using Doctor Doom as the main antagonist of the Fantastic Four in 2025. Nevertheless, Ryan Coogler, the director of the film director, believes that the entry of the supervillain, Doom, is something that needs to be done well, despite any baggage he might bring.

Black Panther: Wakanda Forever hits theaters on November 11.
