Noah Hawley Dishes More on DOOM!!!

The Legion showrunner opened up more on the Doom solo film that he is developing for Fox, but also questions if the project will even survive if Disney buys Fox.

Three times the charm at Fox! After two disastrous attempts at adapting the greatest hero villain in all of comics, Legion showrunner Noah Hawley talked to Observer about the third chance he has in bringing the iconic character to the silver screen. 

As with Legion, my thought was that the [superhero] genre has a certain kind of movie covered, but what else can the genre do. What's interesting to me about Doom's character is he's the king of an Eastern European country and is there a version of this that is more of a political thriller that mixes genre?

Hawley then compared Captain America: The Winter Soldier on what he wants to do with DOOM. 

It's something that [Captain America] Winter Soldier did really well, which was kind of make a Cold War thriller movie out of a superhero movie. This is different than that, but it does have this idea of, and I don't want to say too much about it, but it is a mixture of genres. The mandate is not to re-launch the Fantastic Four franchise as much as it is to take this fascinating and under-served character and really build a movie about him where we ask the question: Is he a hero? Is he a villain? What does he really want?

However, Hawley then noted the one problem his project has going against it. That it might be DOOMED due to the possible Disney buyout of Fox and the only franchise apparently so far spared is Deadpool one.

That's not clear to me yet. I haven't had any larger Marvel-based conversations about if they have plans for the X-Men universe or if they have plans for their other Fox-controlled comic properties. I would have to imagine there's a plan in a drawer somewhere.

As for Legion, Hawley isn't as worried given how acclaimed the show got in the first season and admitted if Season 2 continues that trend, he knows the show will be safe. Speaking of that, Legion Season 2 begins April 3rd.
