The Chairman’s View: Casting the Fantastic 4 – PART 5 (DR DOOM & DIRECTOR)

We have finally arrived at the end of this series for the FANTASTIC 4 at Disney. So I will just put forward a couple of options for both DR DOOM and a director for this movie. My criteria for Dr Doom is a combination of charismatic and menacing, for the director has to have done some work with sci-fi or comic book genre.


Matthew McConaughey

"Mud" Premiere - 65th Annual Cannes Film Festival

This casting could that signals the MCU is moving away from their “one & done” casting for villains, this could be his redemption after The Dark Tower. He could end up being a bit of a pricey option.

Daniel Craig

Daniel C

With his time as James Bond coming to an end, this could a great project for him to get his teeth into. It would be a good change of pace for him to play a bad guy.


Zack Snyder


DC fans calm yourself, Zack Snyder’s visual identity would be a welcome change to the MCU. Given how things ended with Warner Bros, this will be Zack’s only way back into the comic book movie realm. Kevin Feige would need to be hands-on with Zack to temper his creative style.

Gareth Edwards


He already has a relationship with Disney after his success with Rogue One, and he knows how to handle movies with an epic scope. He might be a bit “same-same” to the rest of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

What do you think of the options I have put out there?
