Now, first off, let’s talk about where this ‘scoop’ comes from.
It comes from the guys over at The Weekly Planet.
Those two Aussies that like to talk about comic book movie news, James and Nick, gave us another scoop in their segment ‘Hot Scoop Or Shot Of Poop‘.
I’m pretty sure they’re going to trademark that segment name at some point.
According to their source, the casting for Dr Doom in the Fantastic Four movie is “a lock”.
This means that Marvel Studios has cast their Dr Doom, which is super exciting news.
James – aka Mr Sunday Movies – added that the source is the same person that told them about Charlie Cox and Vincent D’Onofrio both being in the Echo series.
This scoop turned out to be correct as it was later confirmed by all the major Hollywood trades.
Has Dr Doom already been cast for the Fantastic Four MCU movie…?
We then got the added surprise that Marvel Studios is giving Daredevil its own Disney Plus series, called Daredevil: Born Again.
The series will be 18 episodes long, making it the longest Marvel Studios series yet!
Anyway, back to Dr Doom.
The Weekly Planet duo weren’t able to offer any news on who’s been cast as Dr Doom.
However, there’s been a lot of chatter about The Boys’ Anthony Starr having been cast in the MCU.
We’ve been hearing that Anthony Starr might have been circling the Dracula role in the upcoming Blade movie.
However, there are now rumours that he might actually be the MCU’s Dr Doom.
Personally, I would love this casting as I think he’s one of the best actors around at the moment.
Will Anthony Starr play Dr Doom im the MCU?
He’s brilliant as Homelander in The Boys.
However, I would wonder whether he and his team might be worried about typecasting if he does accept the role of Dr Doom.
When I say typecast, I mean Starr might not want to be seen as the guy who only plays villains – even though he’s terrific at it.
We’re going to have to wait and see what ends up happening with this upcoming Fantastic Four movie.
We’ve also heard rumours that Dr Doom might be showing up in Black Panther: Wakanda Forever.
If this is the case, then it would explain why Dr Doom’s been cast before the rest of the Fantastic Four.
The source also stated that the actual Fantastic Four are still be cast.
We might not get that annoucement until D23 or maybe even next year.
Who will play the Fantastic Four in the MCU movie…?
We’ve been hearing so much stuff about the Fantastic Four’s cast.
For instance, we were informed that Jon Watts ended up leaving the project over casting issues.
We were informed that Watts was interested in casting younger, lesser known actors as the Fantastic Four.
Yet, Marvel and Kevin Feige wanted more established actors in the role!
Moreover, John Krasinski recently hinted that he might be returning as Reed Richards in the upcoming MCU movie!
This is all getting way too exciting and we just want to know who’ll be playing Marvel’s first family in the upcoming movie.
The Fantastic Four movie will kickstart Marvel’s Phase 6 in 2024 and I cannot wait to watch it!
