See Batman Star Cillian Murphy as Fantastic Four Villain Doctor Doom
Batman Begins star Cillian Murphy looks menacing as Fantastic Four villain Doctor Doom in fan art for Marvel Studios’ upcoming reboot.
Cillian Murphy is best known for his role as the Batman villain Scarecrow throughout Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight Trilogy. Cillian Murphy first appeared in Batman Begins and later reprised his role in the last two films. With so many comic book films being made today, it is likely that Cillian Murphy could portray another famous villain.
The Fantastic Four’s film rights now belong with Kevin Feige and Marvel Studios. This has caused many fan-casting across the internet on who could play the MCU’s Fantastic Four and Doctor Doom. Boss Logic has shared a new piece of art that sees Cillian Murphy go from Batman rogue to Doctor Doom. You can check out the fan art for yourself below:
A Doctor Doom film was in the works when the property was solely at Fox from Legion‘s Noah Hawley. The Legion showrunner did reveal that he met with Kevin Feige, but it appears the Doctor Doom solo film is dead for now. Doctor Doom is a staple of the Marvel Universe and the villain will surely have a big role in the MCU down the line.
