Avengers: Endgame is going to release in some days now and the whole world is super excited for the movie. The film will drop curtains on Phase 3 of the MCU which established what Marvel is today. But, the bigger and even better things are ahead of us, as a lot of big characters are tipped to make their entrance in the upcoming Phase 4. And the directors of Avengers: Endgame have revealed that they want to bring Doctor Doom in the MCU.
We all are very well aware of the admiration and love Russo brothers share for Doctor Doom, as we have heard them saying time and time again that Doctor Doom is one of the most underrated Marvel villains. And when again they were asked which Marvel villain they would want to bring in the MCU, Joe Russo replied in less than a second,
“Doctor Doom. Doctor Doom or Kraven the Hunter,”
“Kraven because I just love that storyline, I think that Spider-Man Kraven arc would be pretty amazing to see. And I think the tone of that would be super cool. And Doctor Doom, I just love the sort of Shakespearean mythology behind him as a character. And he’s another fascinating character that has had different interpretations in the books, so I think you could shade him in really complex ways.”

We all know that bringing Kraven will be really difficult for Marvel because Sony is creating its own SpiderVerse. But, after the completion of the Disney Fox merger, there are chances that we could see Doctor Doom in Phase 4. In the comics, Doom has played a very crucial role in 1984 and 2015 crossover in Secret Wars. And we have heard in the past from the Russos that they’ll return to Marvel post Endgame when the studio will think of bringing Secret Wars movie.
Joe had said earlier this month,
“I keep saying Secret Wars because that was one of the first books that I really fell in love with as a kid. This notion of, you know, event storytelling, and I think that’s part of the reason that we gravitate so strongly towards these event films and these ensemble films is the notion that you can contain so many different characters and so many different points of view and galvanize them around a story point is really compelling to us.”
Well, we all want to see Doctor Doom in the MCU because he is really a very terrifying villain. But, for now, we have to see what Thanos has in store as Avengers: Endgame is going to release very soon in theaters.
